Tavanipupu Wellness & Spa Retreat is located in Marau Sound, Solomon Islands. Only 25 minutes east by plane from the Solomon Islands capital of Honiara; this privately owned 5 star island is the South Pacific’s best kept secret.
The island has an interesting history. It was once a coconut plantation in the 19thcentury, owned by Norwegian Traders who bought it off the locals for some ammunition. Some of the traders old gravestones still remain hidden amongst the long grass on the island.
Today the island is a tropical paradise surrounded by a vast turquoise lagoon.
Manicured lawns studded with lines of coconut palms are the only remaining evidence of Tavanipupu’s colourful past.
