The Fatboys Resort in Gizo is one of Solomon Islands’ best offerings for travellers looking to relax, eat, sleep, dive… and repeat. The great number of repeat travellers is testament to the resort’s casual and peaceful atmosphere, too.
Fatboys is located on Babanga Island near Gizo. From Brisbane, it’s a three-hour flight to Honiara, then an hour’s domestic hop to Gizo and finally an eight-minute boat ride across electric-blue Pacific waters to the resort. The Babanga island is surrounded by white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and sublime diving spots and the resort highlights privacy and seclusion by offering travellers just 5 bungalows, period.
Each of the bungalows is designed keeping in mind the needs of the modern traveller and traditional architectural touches like leaf and locally-sourced hardwood floors, high-vaulted ceilings, plaited screens, etc. All bungalows are set right next to the beach and come with king-size beds comparable to five-star hotels, oversized balcony/ patios, ceiling fans, hammocks, imported furniture, ensuite bathrooms with hot water and showers, along with surreal views of ocean.
Besides laundry and daily housekeeping service, the resort also offers complimentary turn-down service, tea/ coffee makers and fitted mosquito screens in rooms (because you’re on a tropical island!).
