About
Description
Sheltered from the Coral Sea by the surrounding Islands, fatboys resort could be considered the perfect hideaway. Every morning our guests wake to the most picturesque views of Kolombangara, Kennedy Island More and many other beautiful Coral Cays and reefs that dot our warm calm waters. With a tropical climate and an average daily temperature of 29C, fatboys resort is the destination to be visiting anytime of the year. Less

Hi, just use the visa at the end of your stay. Also we had about $200 Solomon Dollars if you want to slip into Gizo. Can give Fatboys the cash you don’t use and the rest on your credit card. Hope this helps.
