New Art on Manta Ray Walls

The Manta Ray Bay Hotel has added some new and updated wall images to enhance the boutique atmosphere of the hotel. As you may already know, each room has a theme based on a sea creature. Every bed spread is a beautiful work based on the room name showing that creature or fish. The motif of the entire hotel is marine life with each of the rooms individually decorated in tropical elegance. Each room bears a fish name, and is decorated accordingly, with photographs and paintings of that fish, hand-carved door, hand carved key chains and handmade bedspreads.

Manta Ray Themed Rooms

And now all of the rooms have photographic art from Micronesia’s most prolific marine photographer, Tim Rock, who often visits the Manta Ray Bay Hotel and Yap Divers. The halls also sport new images from Rock and also other famous photogs like Carl Roessler, Geri Murphy and the late Paul Tzimoulis.

Boutique Room with wall art, MRBH

The most prominent may be the huge murals of a Yapese dancer (taken at the Manta Ray 20th Anniversary party) and the extreme manta close-up up taken at Miil Channel. This manta passed over Tim nose-to camera at the speed of light one afternoon on an incoming high tide as part of a manta train. He got one shot off. The resulting image of this manta and clear sky above is hard to replicate.

MRBH Lobby Staircase with Tim Rock Yap Images

In all, nearly 40 new undersea images from Yap by Tim can be found in the new wing, the rooms and the halls and staircases of the MRBH. Take a walk through this amazing gallery and enjoy the incredible marine life of Yap.

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
