Fantastic coral ringed island. Extremely comfortable bungalows on the water. Modern bathroom with both outside and inside showers. Mozzie screened and netted with little sign of mozzies though. Recently renovated with new owners. Excellent value as it provides a level of comfort a little above the rest. Snorkeling equipment, kayaks and bikes available to guests. It would even be a... More

I was looking sooooo forward to a week at Tavanipupu. We arrived in Honiara and had no flight to the resort. After 2 days of phone calls, someone finally answered the phone and took a message for Wilson the manager. He finally arrived and made us flights for the wrong dates and they did not coincide with our outgoing flights... More

We recently returned from a 5 night stay at Tavanipupu. The recent changes in management have been well documented in other reviews, and this means the website is inaccurate, but this doesn't detract from this beautiful place. The cottages are large and well furnished. The decor is a bit faded and tired, but clearly this isn't something that has just... More

We recently enjoyed a week at Tavanipupu. The setting is beautiful, the water is clear and warm, the snorkeling is magnificent – there is a dazzling array of fish and coral, all easily accessible from the beach just meters from your house. And there are hidden gems of beaches and observation areas to enjoy if you walk around the island.... More

We spent 5 nights on the island for our honeymoon and thought it was amazing. We would highly recommend to all - families, small groups, older couples etc. We loved the beautiful remote setting, the well manicured grounds, the amazing blue colour of the water, the friendly staff and delicious meals. It was exactly what we were after. No distractions,... More

We had a magic 5 day stay in a piece of tropical paradise. The staff are fantastic. The accomodation is brilliant. The chef provides a great variety of dishes. The snorkelling was very good. We loved the experience of being able to stop and recharge with so little to distract you. No TV, only 5 guests on the island and... More

My family and I visited Tavanipupu for a weekend getaway and it was the best dose of R&R for my husband and great quality family time for all of us. Our children ages 19 and 12 couldn't stay away from swimming around the jetty area, snorkeling, kayaking and cycling around the island. The water is cool and crystal clear, the... More

Once me and my partner arrived at the island we were excited to see the pristine water, coral reef and the absolutely rejuvenating atmosphere of the island. For us it was a perfect get away to clear our minds from the busyness of work and day to day life. We stayed five nights, which i think was enough to enjoy... More

We spent a holiday of a life time here in August. From the moment we left Honiara's friendly domestic airport our adventure began. We stepped aboard a delightful Britt Norman islander plane with eight seats. It was an amazing way to travel and the views from the plane were incredible with a view of the island making us very excited.... More

Absolutely wonderful. I think it must be the last of the tropical frontiers. I came here on my own for the weekend when I was based in Honiara. It was perfect. Just perfect. The serenity is sublime, the food is beautiful and having a glass of wine on the jetty with Pamela, the owner, to chat about life left me... More
