    This is our first ever holiday in the Solomon Islands. We were looking for a well run resort and the brief was "a luxury place where you could wake up and snorkel off the pier in pristine water". Thanks to Hans and his team, we...More

    1. I like to snorkel but my husband doesn't, so I'm wondering what other eco activities Sanbis offers? We both love to bird-watch (although we need a good bird guide to go with us) and to see wildlife in general. We would also enjoy visiting local villages where we can learn about the local culture and traditions, and perhaps hear some traditional music. 2. What is the WiFi availability and cost? 3. Obviously your pizza is divine. Does Sanbis also serve fresh local fish and frutti de mare? Thank you!

    I am trying to decide whether to go to fat boys or Sanbis. My husband loves fishing and I love to snorkel. The bungalows at fat boys look like they are over the water. Are the ones at Sanbis over the water. Can you sit on the verandahs. Also is the restaurant and bar over the water.We want to go this July. Is that month ok or windy. Lynne
