Mnuw, looking good for Christmas

painting Mnuw 002

The S/V Mnuw, our 110 year old schooner and without doubt the most unique bar and restaurant not only in Yap but the Pacific, has been getting a touch up so she is looking perfect for the festive period.   It is an around the clock job keeping the Mnuw looking good and ship shape for our guests.  There is a lot of wood that needs to be treated and painted and it gets done every year.  Some of it is easy to get to but some is a little bit trickier. However, our Mnuw maintenance team is an ingenious crew and always finds ways to get the job done.  In this picture, you can see Detlef Trux, Mnuw Maintenance Manager and Captain Ramli working together as a team.  As you can see Detlef is doing the painting while the Captain holds the Mnuw steady!

There is a festive glow in board as we have hung hundreds of festive lights and various decorations to get us all into the Christmas spirit.  We have some wonderful Christmas and New Year evenings planned, which we will post as the happen.  Maybe next year you will be here to enjoy the season with us, tropical style.

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
