"In the Solomons, there are no big five-star resorts and few accommodation houses that could claim such a rating. The ONLY one that gets probably near it is Sanbis Resort, a traditionally thatched, beautifully appointed and environmentally conscious resort on an island called Mbabanga in the Western province near Gizo. In a place like the Solomons, quality should be measured in Shells, not Stars.
...there is no a Spa or Pool. But that doesn’t seem to matter - the warm sand and crystal-clear waters outside your door make up for it. Ever since I have known the islands, they have stood in my mind, like an antidote to mass tourism and a refuge from the kind of neatly packed island holidays favoured by most Australians who venture into the South West Pacific.
Diving, Snorkelling, Fishing, Surfing, World War II nostalgia, Bird watching, Eco Tours, and exploring the local culture are all part of a beguiling mix, as are the superb natural surroundings and the universal and genuine friendliness of the Solomon Island People. A great five Shell experience in other words!" more>>
