I stayed at this beautiful private beach resort one night. Palau Pacific Resort is the one really luxury hotel it is very nice, the staff very friendly and kind but frankly not sure it is worth the value at over $350 a night. One alternative to use the beautiful beach and the facilities is get a $50 day pass with a 30 voucher to spent at the hotel. But this place has everything great dive center was the attraction for me. They also seems to be very family friendly watching how some of the families engaged and were treated.
Welcome to Paradise Beautiful to die for beach and the view amazing. Since I came to Palau with the intent of finding the 20 of Palau's Uighur and deliver a gifts from China i move on after one day this place is isolated and you need a taxi to go anywhere.
Sea passion hotel mates are very friendly. you may love their hospitality.
Room condition is clean.
Equipped a small swimming pool, and possible to get wet yourself in the sea in front of the hotel bar, if want.
Pay and use wifi and desktop computer.
Water sport office is located in this hotel, good to arrange your activities.
as my boss says, the palau pacific resort is the only hotel/resort to consider when staying in palau. this is true especially if money is no object. although on the expensive side, a stay at this resort is worth every penny from the amazingly cool bathroom (complete with electronic thingamajigs for the water closet!) to the great views of the pacific ocean from your balcony or patio to the uber friendly staff to the best beach in the area there's really nothing bad to stay about this place except the price. hehe.
i love the little mint chocolate bar they leave on your pillow every night when they do turn down services.
You have to keep in mind this was a scuba diving vacation. Palau is predominantly a diver's destination but there is plenty explore for non-divers. I have to say this resort is one of the nicest and prettiest on the island, but that beauty also come with a price... Not ultra pricey but not cheap by any means. if you can afford it, you won't be disappointed. The rooms are spacious with great views of the ocean. Plenty of closet space, especially nice if you have dive gear. The entire grounds are manicured to perfection, a tropical paradise. The resort offers all the amenities including a beautiful pool, delicious restaurant & bar, hair salon, spa, gift shops, etc. Once you arrive you are welcomed by the staff with a fresh fruit cocktail and checking in is a breeze. They also have a small room off their beautiful lobby with computers. So if you feel the need to get online you can.
The pool area is gorgeous, the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail while enjoying the sunset. The restaurant off the pool is open air, so you can enjoy the sunsets from inside as well while enjoying a meal. The seafood is fresh and fantastic! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, all are great. The tuna carpaccio i had one night was to die for. This is a 5 star resort with 5 star service, can't be beat!
We arrived late at night (around 9:30 PM) and the entire hotel staff + hotel manager were waiting for us. They handed each of us a tropical drink and a cool, damp washcloth. Check in was very easy, quick, and done with the best customer service in mind. Our hotel rooms had a small but comfortable second bed set up for our 13 year old son. Our bed was queen sized. The comforter and pillow were VERY comfortable. The room came equipped with a large flat screen TV with about 10 cable channels as well as a channel specifically centered on the history of Palau and things to do during your visit. The room had hard wood floors which was very convenient because the hotel it's own marina/dock and we weren't afraid to drip in the room. The bathroom had a nice travel kit set up and the stand up shower (BEAUTIFUL) had shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel that smelled fantastic - so you don't need to pack very many toiletries. Our room came with a breakfast every morning - which in some places we've stayed is minimal to say the least. However, the LMH had a huge breakfast buffet available that included the regular fare (eggs, toast, breakfast meats, cereal) but also touched on some local foods as well (fresh fruits from the island, sweet cakes made from the local coconuts, etc) plus much more that changes daily. We had dinner twice at the hotel's restaurant. The selection of the menu was great and they have wonderful chef's there. The bar is stocked with anything you can imagine. We got to know our bartender, Dez, who greeted us by name each night. The views from anywhere in the hotel are great (I will admit our balcony had a view of a dive company but it wasn't horrible). You can take your meals in the air conditioned restaurant, outside on the veranda, or even on the dock - where the tables have umbrellas to block any sun. I would recommend this hotel above any of the other resorts because of the price, customer service, atmosphere, and in large part the hotel manager, William. Definitely 4 stars!!
The LMH has it's own marina, and therefor it's own dock. This is very convenient for visitors who'd like to take boating tours, kayak, snorkel, or just even take a quick swim before dinner. The rooms have a nice island decor (think tropical blues and blonde wood), large wide screen TVs, queen size beds (some in our group had rooms with two twin beds), extra beds that can be set up are also comfortable. The hotel's restaurant has a wide variety of dishes (from hamburgers to lobster) and an excellent breakfast buffet (though you can order off the breakfast menu). And most of all, the entire staff of LMH center around the best customer service we've ever had. Having said all that, I would like to mention that one of the main highlights of our stay in Palau was the manager of the Landmark Marina Hotel, William Tsung. If there was anything - anything - we needed, we just went to William and he would make it happen. For example; we were traveling with a group of 39 people and we ended up having an extra day in Palau. A couple of us had talked about wanting to arrange an all day snorkeling tour. We didn't even know where to begin. William overheard this and within the hour had an entire tour set up for us the next day. He even procured an underwater digital camera/videocam for my husband and I AND he put it on CD/DVD for us by the evening we returned from the tour. I mean...THAT'S GREAT SERVICE!! William went out of his way to make it a memorable stay for each of the 39 people we were traveling with.
To get to Lehns Apartment, you have to walk to a winding path. On the way to the apartment, there is a Koror Elementary school you will pass by and a Chinese eatery serving Shanghainese noodles. Plenty of greens around the apartment area.
Each apartment unit comes with either double rooms or single room, furnished with a kitchenette, refrigerator, a living room with TV and a bathroom. Basic equipment provided at the apartment include towels, tap water, basic utensils such as pot, plates and a few cups.
It was convenient and clean. Close to the Palau College, banks, post office, & everything since it was in town. Below the hotel was a supermarket. But there is no pool.
Clean. Good airconditioning in room. Free coffee brewed in small lobby.
This is a first class hotel with beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, and excellent service. I have provided many photos of the hotel in the rest of this site.
The fish pond on the grounds is only 3' deep and contains blue star fish and a couple of manta rays, one of which would come to the side of the pond when you slapped the water and would allow us to pet it!
I personally did not stay at any hotels as I had relatives to stay with but their were three hotels that I saw that looked good.
1. Palasia Hotel Palau – The most modern looking Hotel. It features 165 rooms and is a tall building so it would have good views. Tel: (680) 488-8888
2. The Carolines Resort – In the hills just outside of Koror these bungalow style resort would give you great views. Tel: (680) 488-3754/3755
3. Palau Pacific Resort – On the beach facing the Rock Islands. The most expensive of the possibilities but its beachside location and luxury may justify the price. Tel: (680) 488-2600
I know My picture Doesn't relate to the Hotels but I couldn't make a tip without a picture.
There is nothing fancy about the hotel, though the location is very convenient and its room has a big space. It has also very reasonable price system.
For a diver, you may need a space to put your gear. The hotel can offer you an enough space for that. Clean and reasonable. Staff are very kind and homey atmosphere.
If you got the bucks, this is the place to stay in Palau, as it is the only beach front hotel in the Koror area.
Located about 15 minutes away from Koror on Arakabesang Island, this resort has a nice calm sandy beach, good snorkeling just off the coast, and its own dive shop and boat dock.
But, the best part of staying here is the end of the day, sipping on a beer watching the sun slowly set over the Pacific Ocean....
Is there more to life ?? I dunno, but that is enough for me, anyways....
The Carolines Resort is a very unique place even for resort in Palau. All the "rooms" are actually private hand crafted bungalows. The bungalows are modeled after traditional Palauan architecture using local materials such as bamboo, mahogany and mangrove. The structures are made almost entirely from wood. Each bungalow has a private porch and a spectacular view. There are 7 private bungalows situated on a secluded hilltop over looking the beautiful Philippine Sea.
I had a chance to visit again in May of 2013 is wonderful as ever really a paradise. a few features that i really like
One you get a pass to the Palau pacific resort two free breakfast with great service most important for me the van will take you almost anywhere anytime and they have a bus nearby that will take you all over Koror
