Check Rates

Fatboys Resort, bar and restaurant is situated 100 metres out over the sparkling waters of Mbabanga Island, an 8 minute boat ride from Gizo, the provincial capital of the Western Solomons.

"Fatboys" is derived from the character Joe, from the book "The Pickwick Papers" by Charles Dickens. Joe - the "fat boy", consumes great quantities of food and constantly falls asleep at any time of day, making every effort to avoid work. Whilst staying at fatboys, you become "Joe the fatboy".

Fatboys Resort

Drinks that are ice cold!!! Fresh crayfish pan fried in lime juice and butter or a chilli crab followed by a game of pool, or simply relax and be mesmerized by the myriad of tropical fish swimming beneath the restaurant.

The well stocked bar includes a modest wine list of red and white Australian wines. Delightful mouth-watering meals include locally grown fresh produce and catches of fresh seafood . Open for lunch everyday, and dinner by booking.
