The Pacific Games Council says it has full confidence in Solomon Islands ability to deliver a successful Pacific Games in 2023.
The Melanesian country beat out the bid from French Polynesia at the Council's General Assembly in Port Vila on Thursday by 11 votes to 10.
The Solomon Islands government have promised to build a new national stadium in Honiara for the Games.
The President of the Pacific Games Council, Vidhya Lakhan, is confident they will deliver on their word.
"Today I have no concerns, no problems because we know the leadership, we know their commitment, we know their passion and they will deliver."
"Problems arise for us when there is a change of government and lack of understanding and appreciation of the commitments made by previous governments, in terms of being a host nation, but it takes time to get our messages through."
"Of course seven years is a long time - we don't know what might happen - but at the present time we are fairly confident that if the current government makes all the necessary commitments with the developers, donor governments (and) puts all the necessary legislation in place I think it will be plain sailing to some extent," he said.
French Polynesia said it was unlikely they will bid for the next Pacific Games in 2027.
The territory also lost out to Tonga in the final vote for the 2019 Games.
French Polynesia's Minister for Sport and Education, Nicole Sanquer, said they are very disappointed.
"We made a good presentation but I think the voters of the Council of Games would like to give the chance to Solomon Islands to get infrastructure and we lost."
"We tried for the Games in 2019 and we lost against Tonga and today we lost against Solomon Islands. We have to think about the Games of 2027 but for the moment I don't think it's a good idea," she said.
The Pacific Games Council President Vidhya Lakhan said he hoped French Polynesia would reassess where they went wrong and return with an improved bid in future.
