Countdown to the Awards


Ladies and gentlemen, the time has (almost) come: it’s only a matter of hours before master-of-ceremonies Bill Acker will launch the awards on Mnuw.
9 AM saw the deadline for our contest participants’ entries.
Quite some guests, just like Markus and Julia (pictured below) spent part of last night looking into and working on their selection of pictures.


After submitting the images, what do you guess was next? Right, diving, or rather saying goodbye to the reefs of Yap. Or maybe rather “until next time” given the smiling faces that were all over the place in the past 2 weeks.
After dipping into Goofnuw Channel, Bill decided to supply our guides with some tuna heads from Manta Ray Bay’s freezer room.
Note: always keep your models happy – even if they wear a grey suit and show a rather pointed smile!

Following one to two weeks of nitrogen saturation, many guests decided to keep it slow though. Be it relaxing by the pool, enjoing a massage or other wellness treatments in our Taro Leaf Spa – everybody got their individual share of time off.  However, there were restless souls wo still embarked on a little land expedition to nearby canoe house and the newly constructed Yap Living History Museum.



As for now it’s the jury’s turn, and I bet heads are smoking in the conference room. Air conditioning never was that precious!
We’ll keep you in the loop!

P.S.: Thanks to Andy Schumacher for providing those photos!

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 more

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