The Manta Ray Bay Resort is located on the Yap island in Micronesia and counts amongst one of the most popular beachfronts for ocean-based leisure activities. Awarded for its hospitality and five-star diving, the resort has over 50 distinct dive-sites to explore.
Besides serving the needs of diving enthusiasts from all over the globe, the resort is also hotly tipped for family fun and comfort. The resort offers three choices in accommodation: standard rooms, ocean-view rooms, and deluxe ocean-view rooms and suites. A standard room features one or two queen-sized beds with ensuite bathrooms and views of the hills. The Ocean-view rooms feature the same set of amenities, while Deluxe ocean-view rooms and suites offer plush king-size beds, plunge pools/rooftop jacuzzi, private patios and unique interior decorations and wood carvings. All rooms and suites are equipped with air-conditioning, potable tap water, internet access, fridge, TV and tea/coffee makers amongst other holiday accommodation necessities.
The Manta Ray Bay Resort is built on a private golden sand beach, tailor-made for bathing and taking long walks along. Tours and visits to town are commonplace and worth exploring for a sense of local culture. The resort concierge and our South Pacific Specialists can arrange island excursions to showcase the gems on the island. Highlights include half-day and full-day tours to villages, see the country’s ‘stone money’ and its ‘banks’; the thatched men’s houses and WWII relics and highlights.
But the real deal is underwater exploration, as Micronesia and Yap have some of the greatest diving spots and unexplored reefs and caves. The resort and its allied Yap Divers have charted and named scores of dive sites, such as the Millenium Gardens, Pelaek Corner, Rainbow Reef, Samakai Wall, Stonehenge, Sunrise Reef and so many more.
The warm, clear waters also make for hours and hours of fun snorkelling, night or day. Check with us about availability for night snorkelling safaris, too. In addition, sport fishing is another leisure opportunity to add to the list of things to do in Manta Ray Bay Resort. Game fish are plentiful in this area – the resort’s in-house Yap Anglers provide half-day and full-day tours on demand.
When it comes to dining, take in one of Micronesia’s most unique restaurant and bar attractions – the Mnuw! Originally a 55-metre Phinisi schooner from Indonesia, the docked beauty now holds three dining decks and two bars. Travellers can choose from Asian, local and European cuisines, along with home-made burgers, pizzas, pastas, burritos and light meals. The resort’s lobby also offers a fully-fledged microbrewery with their unique island-themed light and dark beers.
