30th Anniversary Culture


7T8A0467 Front row seating for a Yap culture show was included in the anniversary festivities.

Celebrating the last 30 years of being in business in Yap also means celebrating the last 30 years of Yap culture that is shared with visitors and experiencing Micronesia’s most intact traditional culture.

One of the most colorful activities you can do in Yap is watch a traditional bamboo stick dance.

Traditional attire whips around as bamboo sticks carry a steady tempo while spectators and photographers watch grass skirts fly through the air.

This dance was put on in the parking lot in front of the Taro Leaf Spa with spectator seating for the event party.

Check out the Manta Ray Bay Resort facebook page for more photos of this dance as well as cultural events throughout the year.

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been better.read more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.read more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay here.read more

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the restaurant.read more
