Kosrae Village Ecolodge & Dive Resort

Kosrae is the second largest island amongst the island nations that belong to the Federated States of Micronesia, situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Kosrae islands are untouched and not as popular as having adventures in Palau, Yap and Chuk; this itself is an adventure for the traveller especially if he/she is in need of a fun filled private getaway.

The ocean in Kosrae, is crystal clear and the beaches are soft as velvet, the people are very hospitable and friendly and speak Kosraean, English and some even Japanese. There are miles and miles of rich and diverse coral reefs and this island is filled with greenery; you would literally smell the wet and mossy forests surrounding this resort.

Kosraeans observe Sunday as a day of rest, most visitors are welcomed in to their churches as they are well known for their choral singing. This island is very conservative and dressing modestly to church is compulsory; men in long pants and shirt, women with shoulders covered and relatively long skirts, this will show your respect for their beliefs. There will be no fishing or harvesting of marine life on Sundays, and there will not be any alcohol served as well.

The Kosrae Village Ecolodge & Dive Resort is simply a place to breathe in life! It is secluded, romantic, and absolutely peaceful. Your room will be surrounded by large trees, and the ocean is just at your front door. The architecture is somewhat rustic and really gives the traveller the village feeling, the inside of each room or suite is equipped with modern amenities. The meals are believed to be “comfort food” as one might like to call it; they have a variety of international dishes, vegetarian dishes and vegan. This resort is also the only tec diving resort in Kosrae with an excellent PADI 5 star diving center.

The room categories are;

Regular Cottages – On the beach and shaded by large trees
Large Cottages – perfect for a small family as it is very large and very private and closer to the ocean. The management would provide an extra bed if requested.
Suite – situated at the end of the property, right next to the water and secluded. The suite has a large air conditioned bedroom.

The Kosrae village has its own restaurant named Inum, it has a regional reputation of being one of the best in Micronesia. They specialize in local and international dishes and the dinner menu changes as and when the fresh locally produced chicken and fish are available. The food here is very fresh and there aren’t any added preservatives and the cooks are supposed to be great!
