Welcome!

Welcome!

The name "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 in any situation at any time of the day; the Fatboys life revolves around drinking, eating, sleeping and making every conceivable effort to avoid work.

Whilst at Fatboys Resort the customer becomes "Joe the Fatboy". Enjoy an ice cold bevy, a plate of fresh crayfish pan fried in lime juice and butter, a game of pool, or simply kickback and be mesmerized by the myriad of tropical fish swimming underneath you.

Fatboys Resort, Bar & Restaurant is situated 100 metres out atop the crystal clear waters of Babanga island. A 10 minute boat ride from the airport and 15 minutes from Gizo, the provincial capital of the Western Solomons. We have 5 bungalows that offer you with spectacular views of an early morning sunrise watched straight from your bungalow.
