Welcome to Raiders Hotel & Dive

Raiders Hotel & Dive is a small boutique hotel located in the small township of Tulagi in the historical Central Province (a.k.a. Florida Islands) of the Solomon Islands. The local area is popular for its WW2 wreck diving and the bio-diversity of its marine life on the many reefs nearby.

About Us

Raiders Hotel & Dive is a small boutique hotel located in the small township of Tulagi in the historical Central Province (a.k.a. Florida Islands) of the Solomon Islands. Situated on the waterfront of Tulagi Island overlooking the tranquil waters of Tulagi Harbour and onward to the hills and forests of Ngella.

Tulagi Island was previously the nations capital during colonial rule up until Japanese forces invaded in 1942. The Japanese occupied the Solomons until mid 1943 when the US and Allied forces invaded and ended the Japanese occupation. The harbour was then home to the US and Allied fleet and served as the launch point for the invasion and subsequent battle of Guadalcanal from which the USMC 1st Division Raiders Battalion gained their battle honours and notoriety.

Raiders Hotel & Dive caters mainly to recreational divers and dive groups who are attracted by the opportunity to dive multiple WW2 aircraft & ship wrecks. Additionally they have easy access to number of pristine reefs and wall dives with an abundant selection of corals, reef fish and pelagic species. For the non-diver there are options to snorkel, hike, kayak, bird-watch, go fishing, village visits or take a guided tour around the WW2 sites which still remain and more.

 

All prices quoted are in Solomon Dollars (SBD) and are subject to change without notification.
