I've been to many resorts in the Solomons now, and Wilderness certainly takes the cake! Its exquisite bungalows leave no detail overlooked. Everything is done with care for the environment and local culture without compromising on the luxury. The hardest thing was deciding whether to head out on one of their many tours or enjoy the delightful surrounds of the beachfront bungalows. No, I lie, the hardest thing was to leave!
