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...

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...

My husband and I have just returned from 7 blissful days at Fatboys. We have snorkelled all over the world and actually live in far north Queensland right on the Great Barrier Reef and we reckon the snorkelling is world class at Fatboys and surrounds. The water is warm and clean, the visibility was fantastic, the coral and fish life...

There are a variety of activities to do right from your front door - snorkelling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or simply relax in a hammock with a good book . It is surrounded by crystal clear water, abundant marine life and amazing reef. Fresh seafood is on the menu daily at reasonable prices and the friendly staff can't do...
