“Both websites have been strategically redesigned and re-engineered to specifically dovetail with all the strengths of the national tourist office’s new brand. We have more actively segregated our niches, proactively providing access to our operators and providers who service our offerings, at the same time more creatively attempting to bring out the best of the ‘Solomon’s Is.’’ branding with striking vibrancy.”

Located at the new ‘Visit Solomons’ website has been designed to provide visitors everything they need to know about islands' travel offerings, stressing on the destination’s unique culture and history, diving, fishing, surfing, trekking, and birdwatching. A section is dedicated to the romantic travel and couples market complete with matching accommodation and activity options.

The new industry-focused corporate website,, contains a host of information principally created to provide travel agents, wholesalers and operators with the sales tools they need to effectively sell and package the destination.

This includes detailed information on the national tourist office’s ‘Hapi Isles Specialists’ agents’ online training program.

Tourism Solomons CEO Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto said: “The launch of these new websites has set a benchmark for the Solomon Islands while at the same time creating vital and highly effective new tools for Tourism Solomons in our efforts to promote the ‘Hapi Isles’ on the international travel scene. With their clean design, ease of navigation, upgraded content and vastly improved menu functionality, these new-look websites are a key component of our overall rebrand. We are now far better equipped than ever before to provide our online visitors with simplified yet highly technical vehicles providing a plethora of information designed to provide them everything they need to know about our amazing destination complete with readily available matching accommodation and activity options. Our goal with this new designed website has always been to create a user-friendly browsing experience for our customers and business partners. We like to think we have accomplished that goal.”
