Hotels

There are a variety of hotels in Honiara and information on the ones our guests most often stay in are below.

Please note that Bilikiki Cruises will provide transfers from the airport to your hotel if you are arriving within 3 nights of the trip. We will also provide transfers on the day of the trip from your hotel to the Bilikiki for boarding at 4pm. If you are arriving the day of the trip Bilikiki Cruises will transfer you from the airport to the ship.

There are four main hotels in Honiara and we normally recommend the Seaview East rooms at the Mendana. These rooms only have one bed, the Executive Rooms are to the same standard but have two beds. Please note that the Garden View and Seaview West rooms are in the older part of the hotel and not to the same standard. The Mendana is right in the centre of town, has two restaurants on site and is easy walking distance to other cafes.

The Heritage ParkCoral Sea Resort and King Solomon are also popular options. The Heritage Park is a very modern hotel right next door to the Mendana Hotel. The King Solomon is a more moderately priced hotel but still good quality, it is located two streets back from the town centre so still close to most things. The Coral Sea Resort is the newest hotel in Honiara but it is located a little further out of the town centre. 

It is normally most straight forward to book these hotels directly or via sites such as www.booking.com but we are happy to make reservations for you if you would like.
