Romance & dive in the Solomons


Little has changed in the Solomon Islands since Spanish explorers first discovered the archipelago in 1568, and it’s thanks to this that the destination has  become such a choice for international travellers looking to get off the beaten track and find a new and breathtakingly fresh experience.

While culture seekers, WWII and history buffs, SCUBA divers, fishermen and surfers make up the bulk of those who visit every year, the destination is also making its mark on the international romance scene with more and more couples, particularly honeymooners, looking for something completely different – and the Solomon Islands
delivers in spades.

Gizo, the capital of Western Province, is home to one of the Solomon Islands’ best-known romantic venues – the improbably-named Fatboys Resort. Fatboys Resort is located on Mbabanga Island, 15 minutes from bustling Gizo, the Western Province’s capital. The resort’s overwater honeymoon suites offers picturesque views of volcanic
Kolombangara and nearby Kennedy Island where former US president, John F. Kennedy swam ashore after his boat was sunk during WWII.

Allways Dive is offering a value-added stay seven days, pay only six at Fatboys inclusive of return economy airfares flying from Brisbane via Honiara to Gizo with Solomon Airlines, all accommodation, daily continental breakfast and airport transfers.

Priced from $2,195* per person twin share, the offer also includes welcome drinks, free poly-craft boat hire, a free
guided village tour and use of the resort’s kayaks, SUPs and snorkelling gear.
Upgrades to overwater bungalows are available from $230* per person twin share.

*Conditions apply. Valid for sale until  30 October 2023, valid for travel until 20 December 2023. The package does not include trans Tasman airfares.
