My husband and my 22 year old daughter and myself just spent 2weeks at Sanbis resort a true paradise in every way. Not once were we stuck for anything to do. If you love adventure stunning water and have time to get to know the local islanders you will love all that Sanbis has to offer. I will never forget...

Wife & I just loved this place. We agree with all comments from Fiona J, SharonJB, and Topleaf. Snorkelling right off the bar boat landing was FANTASTIC. Hans (Owner) has grown/placed some huge clams around there as well as sunk a tuna trawler 7 years ago for your exploration (video links may be on Sanbis website). Eel, cowery shell, seahorse,...

We recently spent a week at Sanbis and recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing but entertaining experience. We found the facilities welcoming and very comfortable and the staff friendly and willing to help you in any way you want (including a game or 2 of table tennis). Take the time to talk to the staff, a lovely friendly...

What are all the things one can think of that make up a PERFECT holiday? Great accommodation, a perfect host, fantastic tours, activities on tap, transfers on time, a location to absolutely die for and all wrapped in a package of natural beauty that is very hard to beat - that best describes our stay at Sanbis! Sanbis met, exceeded...

If you live in Honiara, this place is an excellent get away. We went up and fished, snorkelled and chilled out. Hans was very entertaining, the staff were very good and if you go in expecting an Eco-friendly resort then it will deliver. If you are wanting a 5 star luxury resort then you must be in the wrong country!

Wow! What a visionary project by eccentric and entertaining owner-builder Hans Mergozzi! Constructed from local materials, this place was an "Eco Hotel" before the term was even coined. We ate amazing fresh seafood every night served by fun and friendly staff. Having only six bungalows makes this a relaxing, exclusive resort; however, there is also the option of taking a...

This place is spectacular! Bungalows were cute and immaculate. Food was delicious. Snorkelling was great, straight off the jetty, crystal clear water. Nothing was too much to ask of the staff and the owner. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

I've just returned from my 5th trip to Sanbis (being based in Honiara) but this is the first time I've written on Trip Advisor, as my time in the Solomons is coming to an end soon.... I simply believe that Sanbis is the best resort in the Solomon Islands and I can say that with some confidence, having stayed at...

Just got back from our honeymoon in the Solomon Islands, spent 4 nights at the Sanbis resort. Beautiful location! There is a over water bar with stunning views, you can jump straight off the jetty into the crystal clear waters! Snorkeling is very good! We also opted to take a trip to Olsana island which is a short boat trip...

I have spent 6 days at the resort. There are six bungalows and a restoran and a bar. The place is very quiet and not crowded. The stuff is very very friendly. The food is very good. The accomodation is good. Those that seek perfect luxery may find few objections but those who seek true vacation, good relaxed holiday and...
