Accomodation was comfortable and our hosts were knowledgable and generous. A big thanks to you all but especially Panda for helping me catch my PB GT 49 lbs caught on a surface popper!

Had the pleasure of visiting fat boys. From the time I called them for pickup they were ther within 10 minutes. A 5 minute banana boat trip was additional to the experience. Ordered lunch, relaxed for an hour and headed back. Not a lot on the menu but what is offered is very nice. Will be back again... Thanks for... More

For diving this is probably the best of a bad group. The accommodation was interesting, the food very expensive and limited in variety, the cost of getting off the resort was $40 per person to got to Gizo. They had no where for you to wash or hang your own equipment it had to be taken back to Gizo and... More

My girlfriend and I took a day trip from Gizo to Fatboys resort- booking transport was simple and cheap and the resort itself was idyllic. The snorkelling around the restaurant was varied and the water crystal clear and inviting. With the option of renting a kayak and Kennedy island well within paddling distance there is plenty to do. The food... More

I recently spent 3 amazing nights at Fatboys Resort with 3 friends. When you arrive and the boat takes you to Fatboys overwater bar/restuarnat you know you are in for a treat. We had a family bungalow which was very comfortable. It had 3 singles in one room and a queen in the other room. One bathroom to share. All... More

A magical experience! In a Dickensian sense, a fatboy is a slovenly layabout who does little else but eat, drink and sleep. At Fatboys Resort this is all you have to do! We did extend ourselves to some fishing and snorkelling trips, as well as a couple of visits to the neighbouring resort. The food here is beautiful- particularly the... More

My wife and I walked from Sanbis resort through the local village to have lunch at fatboys located at the opposite end of the island, the food and views of the reef from the over water restaurant was very good and service was great.

My husband and I have just returned from 7 blissful days at Fatboys. We have snorkelled all over the world and actually live in far north Queensland right on the Great Barrier Reef and we reckon the snorkelling is world class at Fatboys and surrounds. The water is warm and clean, the visibility was fantastic, the coral and fish life... More
