Honiara is the capital of the Solomons and has a bustling town centre. There are hotels and guesthouses to suit all budgets. The larger, high quality hotels are based in the city area and backpacker style accommodation for those on a budget.
Once you get out of the city there is a diverse range of accommodation. You might like to choose a diving, fishing or surfing package holiday where your accommodation and all activities are included. We also have village stays so that you can experience local life and your dollars will be contributing to the local economy.
Or you may prefer a cabin over the water on a tropical island where you can snorkel, swim and dive. And of course, there are options if you’re travelling with a group where you can book your own private island. Most properties in the Solomons are environmentally friendly, rich in local culture and they all provide employment to local people and support local villages.
