An open-air reception cum dining area cum general gathering space stretching 100m over the water greets you as you approach Fatboys Resort. The water surrounding the resort is so clear you can see the sandy ocean bottom and colourful fish darting around the jetty and under the boat as you travel through the lagoon. This is the untouched paradise you have been dreaming of, and it's located only a few hours from Australia, in the beautiful Solomon Islands.
Fatboys Resort is the pinnacle of barefoot luxury in the Solomon Islands. Guests and staff mingle, visitors can snorkel directly from the dining room after they have finished their morning cuppa, and the curious, friendly marine life aren't afraid of making themselves known in hopes of getting food scraps and perhaps some interaction with the guests. Comprised of bungalows that are constructed with local, traditional materials such as hardwood from the Solomon Islands and thatched roofs, verandahs from the rooms overlook the crystal lagoon and vibrant scenery.
The dining room serves the freshest local food, with fishing expeditions going out daily to provide that night’s dinner. Local fruits and in-season vegetables accompany the mouth-watering seafood, and since menus are created based on what is available it’s easy to accommodate most visitors’ dietary requirements. Have something special in mind or want to plan a romantic evening for your special someone? Just speak to the friendly staff who will be happy to help make everything perfect for you!
Spend your days hiking the trails of Kolombangara Island, which can be seen from Fatboys, diving local hidden treasures, or snorkelling in the warm waters surrounding the resort. Why not take a kayak trip before lunch, go fishing for your dinner, catch some waves a short distance from the resort or just relax in your (almost) exclusive island paradise.
Whether going with family, friends or on a romantic Solomon Islands holiday, our travel experts at My Solomons will help you arrange the perfect stay at the unparalleled and authentic Fatboys Resort.

Dear Chloe, We recently returned from our Solomon Island Holiday and loved it. It's fifty years since my husband lived on Malaita Island which has changed little but offers a truly unique experience for the intrepid tourist. There was no Fatboys off Gizo or Heritage Park Hotel in Honiara fifty years ago, they both offer a simple yet very rewarding experience with a difference. We have recommended this destination to friends interested in the Coast Watchers and WWII history, the JFK connection is fascinating. Oh, and Solomon Airlines has 'the' most comfortable and spacious economy class seats that we have ever come across. While not a glitz and glamour holiday, it was definitely value for money and we hope to return next year. We thank you for booking a magical holiday and we look forward to booking with you in the future. Regards.
My partner, Don G, & I have recently returned from a delightful holiday in the Solomon Islands. Having travelled there previously as independent travellers in 1985 & 1997, we were a trifle wary of booking a package deal. Now, however, we are complete converts! Everything flowed so smoothly & with people to meet & greet us, or wave us off all along the way, it was a totally worry-free experience. Despite the decidedly inclement weather, we very much enjoyed our stay at Fatboys & found the staff remarkably friendly & helpful & eager to utilise any sunshine for boat trips to the nearby islands. And after 30 years, Honiara was a pleasant surprise as well, especially the Heritage Park Hotel whose staff could not have been kinder. However our greatest plaudits go to our guide, John Au & driver, Glen Siru from Travel Solomons who conducted our Wold War Two Historical & Cultural Tour. This, I thought, would have been of little interest, but John’s intimate & extensive knowledge, as well as his totally professional delivery, made for a truly fascinating experience. In fact we enjoyed our holiday so much, that we are planning to return next year in either June or July. Congratulations on hosting such an efficient travel service. Sincerely, Althea W
Hi Christy, Had a great time at Fatboys resort. The staff were brilliant and looked after us, as we had the place to ourselves for the first 4 days!! Snorkelling paradise and snorkelled on a wwII fighter plane. You need to promote this spot, as it is glorious. Col and Linda C
