International in Gizo

What a sensational setting! The dining room is on a pier that hovers over the turquoise waters of Vonavona Lagoon – it can't get more mellow than this. The choice is limited but the food is fresh and tasty. Good cocktails (from S$60), too. Call the reception to arrange transfers from Gizo (S$180/290 for one/two people).

After your meal, rent snorkelling gear (S$30) or a kayak (S$30) and explore the sandy shallows that extend to Kennedy Island.
