“Lovely stay at Heritage Park”

I stayed at Heritage Park Hotel for a week during a recent work trip in the Solomon Islands. My stay at Heritage Park was an absolute joy! The entire staff of the hotel is incredibly helpful and friendly, the hotel is very clean and beautiful, the rooms are extremely comfortable with modern amenities, and the hotel location right on the ocean is unbeatable - be sure to take in several sunsets while you are there! The hotel pool and pool bar are also great to enjoy. We had daily breakfast with our stay, which is very nice and you may also order any specialty coffee as well (full espresso bar). Overall, a wonderful stay - highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the ocean or gardens.

“Great Value”

This was my first official trip in the Solomon Islands but was very pleasantly surprised with a month’s stay at Heritage Park Hotel. We had sea views, great food & great chefs. Staffs were accommodating, wonderful big clean rooms, good showers, air conditioning with a full buffet breakfast included.

I would certainly recommend Heritage Park Hotel for its value for money, safer than any other hotels around & great Management

“Great Asian cuisine available too”

Great Place & great ambience What makes the Heritage Park hotel a very nice place to stay is not only the beautiful local architecture, the pool area with the surrounding gardens, but also the fact that the staffs are so kind and friendly...

​ “Living at the Heritage!”

We lived here for over 2 years in a fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment! I cannot say enough how wonderful it was. The staff were all just amazing, the swimming pool was always one of my favourite places, the bars and the food was always great as well! I love the gardens and they are maintained every day. We held a lot of functions on the deck by the pool at the Splash Bar and they were always very accommodating and couldn't do enough to help us out. I will miss living in this beautiful place!!

Room Tip: Overlooking the ocean is gorgeous!

“Excellent Location!”

The Heritage Park is an excellent location, right on the water front with great views and walking distance to many of the key locations around central Honiara. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and we've always had prompt assistance from them whenever we've requested anything. We've had great meals, and fun gatherings around the pool; we will very much miss this place when it's time to leave!

Wedding

On the 1st of Nov we arrived in Honiara by cruise ship for our wedding at the Heritage Park Hotel. The wedding was a month in the planning. From the initial e-mail contact right to being dropped off back to the ship exceeded our expectations beyond words. Brad and his staff were accommodating and amazing. The venue was exactly like the photos on their website and they had decorated the ceremony area magnificently. The day went without a hitch thanks to all of the effort of the staff and we cannot thank the efforts of the Hotel enough. We are proud and feel very privileged to be married at The Heritage Park Hotel in the Happy Isles. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We highly recommend the Hotel not only as a place to stay (our rooms were beautiful), but also as a fabulous place to have a wedding.

The place to be

Has a history behind this magnificent hotel, surrounded by sightseeing places like the gallery if you an artist, craft market if you want to buy souvenirs, walking distance to the museum to spend your afternoon before hitting back for happy hour at the poolside bar looking out to the ocean for sundown....has friendly staff who greets you with a smile and is always willing to assist and guide you.....lovely and scrumptious food at the restaurant...... Awwww and if you need cash, they do have an ATM right there for you, so if you are worried about where to stay or your safety....HP is the place to be.

The best hotel in Honiara!

Myself and a friend stayed at a few hotels in Honiara and this was by far the best! It's a lovely sanctuary that feels away from the hustle and bustle but the location is perfect, right in the middle of the city. Fiona on check in was fantastic and all the staff are super friendly. They even come and turned down our bed and left a chocolate while we were out to dinner. We had a room overlooking the water which was great! The pool is fantastic and the meal options are great. 

Would definitely stay again!

Much better than expected

I stayed here for a few days in advance of my dive trip aboard the Bilikiki live aboard, in order to do the WW II tours.

People were super nice, room was very clean, food good. AC was adequate and wifi pretty good. I was actually put in the same room that Prince William and Princess Kate stayed in. I am convinced that this is the best choice in town.

Note that the town of Honiara is bigger than you would think and not very interesting. I ate all my meals at the hotel actually.

In terms of WW II tours, you need a couple days. One for the eastern battlefields and one for the western battlefields.

Tried diving or fishing with local charters. A lost cause. No one was diving with Dive Tulagi (we have a group coming next week), and all the fishing charters seemed to be out of business.

Suggest that if you go to do the WW II tours, you want to do some research beforehand. The tours were a little confusing and the language barrier (and local names) didn't help.

Back to the hotel. Happy to recommend it!

The hotel fit for a king … or at least Will and Kate

When Kate and Wills had to choose a Melanesian country to visit during Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, they chose the Solomon Islands; when they needed somewhere to stay, there was no choice: the Heritage Park Hotel Honiara.

While the hotel’s first high profile guest, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, prompted a huge security detail, safety measures around the future king and queen of England “was very relaxed”, the hotel’s general manager Sanjay Bhargava tells me.

In fact, Sanjay says the friendly royals stopped to chat to just about everyone. Perhaps they’d been transported to a happy place; the Solomons, nicknamed the Hapi Isles, tends to have that effect on people. Or perhaps, they just felt that comfortable in the Heritage.

The spot: In a way, the Heritage, feels like the epicentre of Honiara: it’s located in the middle of town, close to the city’s major markets, bustling wharf, and souvenir shops, and lies across the road from the national museum and adjacent to the tourist office.

Set across five acres of waterfront land, and boasting beautifully manicured gardens, the property even has concerts in its car park, which welcome DJs and live acts from around the globe.

The Heritage may have only opened in 2009, but in line with its name, feels like it’s been here a lot longer.

The room: It mightn’t be the 3-bedroom Presidential Suite in which its high profile guests (presumably) stayed, but my executive room at the Heritage still feels pretty regal (particularly after having gone bush for a few days).

Finished with beautiful dark wicker furnishings, the room has a casual elegance, and features all the mod cons you’d expect of an international hotel, including air conditioning, large tv and adequate wifi, a nicely fitted bathroom, and a private balcony with water views. Best of all, it’s super clean. The Heritage also boasts one and two bedroom serviced apartments.

What to eat: GG’s restaurant offers semi-formal (read casual) dining, featuring a mix of Western and Asian cuisine. The seafood here is sumptuous (and of course, super fresh), and although the prices are on the dear side (actually, Aussie prices), the portion sizes are massive. So forget about three courses – and try to overlook the imposing pictures of former Governor General Sir George Lepping, on whose former residence the hotel now stands.

ust outside, the more casual Terrace Bar offers a wide selection of fare ranging from Thai fish cakes to Indian curries to grilled snapper and a selection of pastas and pizzas. A cool SolBrew, the local lager, goes down well here. Elsewhere, the Splash Bar serves up surf n turf overlooking the ocean.

What to do: The Heritage has a large swimming pool, which lies adjacent to Splash Bar, and also offers a gym, small business centre and meetings facilities that during our visit, none other than the Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands is using. Sanjay tells me he has no idea why he's here. Judging by the small security detail, he’s visiting on official business. Or perhaps like Kate and Will, he just loves it here. Like me.
