About Tavanipupu Island Resort (Closed)

The Tavanipupu Island Resort is one of the most unique resorts in the South Pacific, and with good reason. Located in the Marau Sound of the Solomon Islands, this resort is a bit difficult to reach – the only ‘con’ to the long list of ‘pros’. After landing in Honiara, travellers have to take another half-an-hour sea-plane connection to the Marau airport; from there, a speedboat drops them on the Tavanipupu island in 10 minutes.

How many beach resorts in the world have been bestowed with the honour of hosting the British royal couple, Prince William and Princess Kate? A ‘royal’ connection, indeed. This tiny resort wowed the prince and the princess with its barefoot luxury and continues doing so for every couple and family visiting this place. With the star-power out of the way, this secluded destination is truly special beyond the ordinary pale of other sandy beach resorts. One reason being that its version of five-star luxury is light-years different from the rest of the world. On the 13-hectare island, there are only 13 large villas spread all over, providing plenty of privacy. There is complimentary WiFi in the main public areas, but no TVs, LEDs, radio, telephones or any technological distraction from the warbling of birds and the gentle ruffling of the ocean winds. There is also no air-conditioning at Tavanipupu Island, but you won’t really need it anyway.

Activities & Things to Do in Tavanipupu, Solomon Islands

To make up for the lack of modern addictions, Tavanipupu Island provides miles of glassy blue waters to swim, snorkel and dive in absolute privacy. Travellers can explore the island on bicycles, paddle through the lagoon waters on a kayak or sign up for one of the many dive charters to explore the Solomons’ hundreds of dive spots. A village visit to the nearby island of Marapa is also recommended to know about traditional life and culture of the Solomon Island natives.

To cool off, each villa has a spacious patio with a mandatory hammock under a palm tree for the essential afternoon island snooze. To make up for the lack of telephones, there is a convenient drum outside the villas. All the guests need to do is to bang out a rhythm! Lunch and dinner is announced the same way.

Dining at Tavanipupu Island Resort

For meals, the Tavanipupu Island Resort shines in fresh seafood and culinary delights. Plus, a romantic candlelit dinner by the jetty under the blanket of millions of stars is nothing less than what movie-writers dream about.
