The moment we arrived in Gizo our jaws dropped. The place was paradise. Clear, warm water, white sandy beaches and the warm temperature is not something we get to experience very often. Once arriving on the transfer boat to Fat boy's Resort we immediately felt at home. We had the opportunity to spend a full week at the resort and...

Loved this out of the way place. The water is just beautiful. Loved the fact that its a bit hard to get to and so not so many tourist there. Each day the cook would ask us what we would like him to make for us. Took (hired boat and driver) the boat to Ghizo one day for a look...

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff at the office in Gizo were very friendly and helped get my booking and transfer sorted asap. I was greeted with a smile and drink. The surroundings are just stunning and can't be beaten. The snorkelling is excellent and there is a host of boat and diving trips that can...

We spent a wonderful week at the most beautiful location in the Pacific. The staff and the hosts, John and Karen made us feel like we were the guests of honour. The meals were fantastic and even more so if you're a lover of fresh seafoods. The snorkelling was the best we have experienced. A short flight from Honiara and...

We were staying nearby & decided to take a quick boat ride over to Fatboys resort for some lunch. There was actually nobody staying at the resort at the time & most of the staff were on holiday (although they stayed at the resort). I was amazed at how at a moments notice the staff opened their kitchen & bar...

I stayed at Fat Boys for 2 nights in 2010 and this time for a week and I still didn't want to leave. It is everything you could wish for a "get away from it all" holiday to be. Right from the time the dingy picks you up from the airport (yes transfers are in a small boat) to the...
