I loved Solomon Islands so much when I first visited (around Gizo) that I decided to come back two years later. Uepi is an eco-resort so don't expect luxurious bungalows from the Conde Nast magazine. It has however it's special charm and it's also nice to see how the owners care about the local community and nature around them. I...

IT is remote, interesting to get there, it truly is heaven. It is obviously loved by the 'owners' Jill, Grant, Jason and Katie. Who care about the environment and their little place of peace and beauty. There are no TVs, internet reception is a challenge considering its location and remoteness this is very understandable. There is little time to connect...

Gem, jewel, treasure .... But above all a quite unique place to stay. Uepi Resort has evolved over the past 30 + years of Gill and Grant's care and attention into a unique and idyllic divers' and gourmets' retreat half an hour by speedboat from Seghe airstrip across Marovo lagoon. Let me try to add to rather than repeat what...

Amazing resort in stunning location, pristine coastline with superb diving. A bit of a pain to get to but worth the hassle, also pricey but we thought worth it. Grant and his family run a tight ship, great food and the facilities are top notch. A must for dive enthusiasts (like us) ;)

My partner and I recently stayed for 6 nights at the amazing Uepi Island Resort. We heard about the resort through our landlord, whom visited the island 20 years ago! It was adventure getting to Uepi, as there was torrential rain (as we travelled in the wet season), and our flight was delayed 2.5 hours from Honiara to Seghe. Once...

They do an exceptional job with food and keeping track of dietary needs or preferences A few things that were not apparent when we booked 1) meals are pretty strictly scheduled and all guests eat at one table. That was nice, but unexpected 2) when coming from Brisbane, you can check 30 kg there, even thought the web site for...

My husband and I had a fantastic, relaxing week at Uepi. We normally go to Fiji but decided this year to try a different spot and picked the Solomons after hearing that it had great snorkelling. We spent one night in Honiara at the King Solomon Hotel, which was basic but clean. Taxi from the airport was SBD$100 (SBD$10 per...

Great experience and fantastic service. The owner, Katie made special breads, muffins and various dishes gluten and dairy free. The food is so fresh and tasted totally home-made. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. The snorkelling is incredible. The bungalows are laid out perfectly around the lagoon. Paddling out in the lagoon and floating on a board...

In a place like The Solomons, it's important to have people who are "on it". Jason, one of the owners, has everyone's number: the pilots, the airport, the transfer boats, the dive boats and is well-informed of wind and weather. We felt very well cared-for, almost pampered. The food is phenomenal. It is mostly sourced locally. Fruit and seafood are...
