Fatboys is on an island just a short boat ride from the town of Gizo. The rooms are nice and spacious. The local restaurant offers excellent food. The staff friendly and takes great care of you. My dive buddy got very sick and they checked in on him through out the day while I was SCUBA diving. When I returned...

We stayed in a semi detached bungalow with a nice small private beach out the front. Nice rooms with (essential) mosquito nets and the only in room fridge...

Ordered lunch, relaxed for an hour and headed back. Not a lot on the menu but what is offered is very nice. Will be back again... Thanks for...

For diving this is probably the best of a bad group. The accommodation was interesting, the food very expensive and limited in variety, the cost of getting off the resort was $40 per person to got to Gizo. They had no where for you to wash or hang your own equipment it had to be taken back to Gizo and...

My girlfriend and I took a day trip from Gizo to Fatboys resort- booking transport was simple and cheap and the resort itself was idyllic. The snorkelling around the restaurant was varied and the water crystal clear and inviting. With the option of renting a kayak and Kennedy island well within paddling distance there is plenty to do. The food...

I recently spent 3 amazing nights at Fatboys Resort with 3 friends. When you arrive and the boat takes you to Fatboys overwater bar/restuarnat you know you are in for a treat. We had a family bungalow which was very comfortable. It had 3 singles in one room and a queen in the other room. One bathroom to share. All...

A magical experience! In a Dickensian sense, a fatboy is a slovenly layabout who does little else but eat, drink and sleep. At Fatboys Resort this is all you have to do! We did extend ourselves to some fishing and snorkelling trips, as well as a couple of visits to the neighbouring resort. The food here is beautiful- particularly the...
