Sanbis Resort

Sanbis ResortSitting amidst coastal trees and coconut palms is Sanbis Resort. Its villas verandahs overhang a tranquil lagoon. Enjoy snorkeling in front of your private bungalow in 30°C waters or simply relax to your heart’s content. Approximately 8 - 10 minutes from the Gizo airstrip by boat, Sanbis Resort offers the premier accommodation in the Solomon Islands, with each bungalow having luxury ensuite bathrooms with hot water and a terrace with a stunning view across the lagoon. The resort boasts the best stocked bar in the West.

To maintain total exclusivity, the resort has six bungalows, generally limited to 12 guests at any one time. Each bungalow incorporates a modern ensuite bathroom with hot shower, has its own secluded beach and is totally separated from the others.To ensure tranquility, Sanbis Resort is a "KIDS FREE" haven (no children under the age of 12 years).

Accommodation, Amenities and Activities

The resort has 6 beautifully appointed bungalows, limiting the number of guests at any one time. Each bungalow is made from local materials  with it's own secluded beach and is totally separated from the others. Fresh drinking water is provided daily, hot water for tea and coffee is available in thermos bottles, which are replaced twice a day. All bungalows have a small iPod speaker system, insect screens on the windows and a large mosquito net over the Queen sized bed, modern ensuite bathroom with hot water, bath and beach towels, solar powered lighting, ceiling fans which run 24 hours a day and a terrace with stunning views across the lagoon. Two bungalows are a little larger than the other four – ideal to share between 3-4 divers, a small fishing group or a family with up to 2 older children (over 12 years).

THE LODGE is an exclusively private complex located on the most Westerly point of the island, about a 250 metre walk from the Bar/Restaurant. The sunrise and sunset can be viewed from the same vantage point with an approximately 300 degree view! The main building has three split levels with a living/entertainment area with TV screen, Hi-Fi and wireless internet. On a level lower is a “mini kitchen” with dining area. A level further down, there is a lounge and a sun deck with BBQ facilities and a 6 person spa bath. A fridge with ice maker is restocked daily like a mini bar. Next to the main house, to ensure total privacy, are two fully air-conditioned bungalows with ensuite hot water bathroom and small veranda overlooking the lagoon and several islands. The Lodge has a private jetty and a private boat is provided with the rental for exclusive use of the guests to explore the Gizo lagoon. This is an absolutely idyllic option for two couples or a family with two elder children or a small group – the bungalows are big enough to add a few single beds.

Diving, fishing, snorkeling, island trips, beach bbq, water-skiing, surfing - you name it Sanbis can do it. With the dive center located at Sanbis Resort, Solomon Watersport can take care of all your diving needs, including wreck, reef, wall and even muck diving. With dedicated fishing guides, both reef and deep sea fishing are on offer. 

Kayaks, windsurfers, water-skiing and wake boards are also all available for hire. Take a kayak and snorkeling equipment and paddle over to one of the nearby islands and create your own adventure. 

Sanbis Resort is one of only a handful of exclusive "GO ECO"operators in the Asia Pacific Region.

It is a true "water lovers" paradise, however it is not suitable for those expecting 5 star luxury and the mod-cons of the western world!

Sanbis Resort Room


There is a beachfront restaurant/bar exclusively for Sanbis guests as well as a public over the water SB Bar area at the end of the jetty offering a pub style menu and fantastic views. Sanbis Resort's internationally trained chef creates exotic seafood delicacies, spicy island BBQ’s and a wide variety of western style meals with an island touch, helping to create a relaxing and memorable experience. You can also enjoy great pizzas from the genuine Wood Fire Pizza Oven. There is wireless internet access at the SB Bar (bring your own laptop) and batteries for cameras, computers etc can be charged anytime at the Resort bar/restaurant or the SB Bar.
