Why Manta Ray Bay Resort?

Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers is a small, family-owned, luxury hotel on the pristine island of Yap in the western Pacific Ocean – operating since 1986. Yap has a resident population of manta rays and several shallow cleaning stations where divers can see mantas year-round. In addition to manta ray diving, we love taking our guests to dive among reef sharks, Mandarin and brilliant coral reefs with macro fauna and caverns. We are proud to have recently been voted by the readers of Diver Magazine UK as one of the top 25 dive resorts worldwide and the Reader’s Choice Award as #5 dive resort in the Pacific/Red Sea/Indian Ocean. Serving only 1,000 divers a year, we offer our guests crowd-free dive sites and VIP service, spa treatments, home brewed beer and a unique bar/dining experience onboard our 100+ year old Indonesian Schooner moored in front of the resort.

Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers, Yap Micronesia
First, we enjoyed every minute while staying at your beautiful hotel. Everything is so perfectly thought through to give guests and divers the most convenient holiday. Having our own open air whirlpool with great bay view was almost too much. The Yap divers did a great job and were allways open to our wishes about what we would like to see or which spot we would like to dive. The Mnew and Detlef were amazing and the hole staff was allways very friendly and helpful. (thanx for the coockies on valentine's). We loved beeing with the Mantas and the blacktips. on our last dive, Wilie (male adult manta) spent 20 minutes with us circeling above our heads. for us, it couldn't have been better. (Now, if there is one thing... just to make diving more comfy... some kind of toilets on board would have been the sweetest cherry on the cupcake) We thank everyone for making our stay truely unique.
