Bringing world-class entertainment to Honiara

Bringing resort-style gaming to Honiara, the South Seas Casino & Resort has become a favourite with tourists and business customers since opening in late 2015.

The first in a three-stage development for Honiara Resort Solomon Islands Limited, the complex includes a two-storey casino (boasting 64 slot machines and 26 gaming tables), along with a 52 seat restaurant and outdoor swimming pool. 

Designed to reflect its exotic surroundings and maximise views of the Pacific coastline, the casino was constructed using a combination of hardwood joinery and structural steel, with precast panels forming the external walls. Joinery was manufactured in our Papua New Guinea joinery factory. Sourcing the structural steel from China resulted in significant cost benefits for the project, and the precast wall panels were batched and poured on site to ensure the stringent quality standards were met.  

Client satisfaction with delivery of the project saw Fletcher awarded further stages of the project, initially for a 35-room accommodation wing and 5 “high roller” luxury villas at the Resort.
