Enjoy a week of fantastic diving, snorkelling and dining at a private island resort in the Solomon Islands! With transfers, meet-and-greets and a free night, it's never been easier to tick this South Pacific favourite off your bucket list!
Enjoy a private island escape like never before! Silky white sand beaches with complete privacy, beachfront bungalows, fantastic coral reefs in crystal-clear waters and great dining – what more could you want?
Our holiday takes you to Solomon Islands, where we’ve packaged a six nights’ stay with one night free at a private island resort. Your beachfront couples’ bungalow has its own stretch of powdery white sand beach to explore to your heart’s content. The resort prides itself on fantastic scuba-diving hot-spots just minutes from the island; while you can snorkel amongst colourful banks of coral reefs right off the beach. The wining and dining are off the charts, as is the hospitality. See the pictures, book the package and go!
Your beachfront bungalow has been made using local leaf and hardwoods; the furniture is all handmade. Steps away from the island’s white sand beach, the bungalow boasts of scintillating views of the Pacific Ocean and other islands. Inside, the bungalow features a king-size bed, ensuite bathroom, open plan living space and a spacious balcony to while away island evenings.

Day 1: Land in Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands. There will be a friendly local representative to greet you and take you to the island resort. It’s a short car transfer and a 10-minute boat ride and, hey presto – you’ve arrived! Check into your beachfront bungalow and unwind with a relaxing shower. Your holiday has officially begun!
The resort’s ethos is “drinking, eating, sleeping and making every conceivable effort to avoid work” and it takes the tenet very seriously for its guests. The resort’s restaurant and bar prides itself on fresh seafood served in a variety of mouth-watering preparations along with a good selection of drinkies. There are hammocks strung up for a nap under the shade of a palm tree, preferably with the company of a good book and a cocktail.
But the resort’s real value is in the number of scuba-diving and snorkelling hotspots peppering the waters around it. With great snorkelling right off the beach and scores of wall-dives, shark-dives, wreck-dives and more, it is truly a water-sports enthusiast’s nirvana. Go for island tours, hikes to other islands, fishing charters, surfing tours and more – its up to what you feel like doing in the morning. We recommend visiting the Njari island for an excursion – on a single tank dive, you are guaranteed to see over 200 species of fish. Plus, the beach is stunning and is excellent for a beach picnic.
Day 8: Check out of the resort. There will be boat and airport transfers, along with meet-and-greets, to help you to the international airport in Honiara. Fly safe and do visit us again soon!
The Solomon Islands is the opposite of a ‘commercialised beach destination’. Here, travellers are welcomed to simple, carefree living and rich experiences. Just three hours away from Brisbane, this destination is a picture-perfect beach holiday minus the crowds.
With 992 islands giving travellers unlimited access to forest-covered mountains, some of the best diving and fishing spots on the globe, white sand beaches as far as the eye can see, World War II sites and war memorials, lip-smacking Polynesian cuisine – a trip to the Solomons is a holiday to remember.
Tourists can visit villages to see arts and craft forms which have endured for 4,000 years as well as ‘kastoms’ (customs) handed down for generations. Also, as a country which witnessed World War II first-hand, Solomon Islands is a treasure trove of history. Visitors can check out old anti-aircraft/warship guns and installations spread all over the island.
Plus, this island destination is a diver’s paradise. The clear blue ocean covers miles of coral gardens in their multi-coloured majesty, where travellers can swim around silver and golden shoals of fish. Scuba diving, snorkelling, game fishing, wreck diving, wind surfing, kite surfing… every water activity is amazing in the Solomons!
