Kosrae, called “The Sleeping Lady” because of the shape of one of its picturesque mountains is covered with dense tropical jungles and high volcanic peaks, with lush river valleys and spectacular views.
From $155 USD for a double room per night.
The island is surrounded by extremely healthy fringing reefs teeming with splendidly colorful tropical fish feeding off the spectacular corals.
Average visibility well exceeds 30 metres—perfect for spotting paddling sea turtles and large rays winging their way through the blue waters. The coral reefs, which slope steeply into the clear blue depths, are one of the great attractions of Kosrae.
Equally attractive are its warm-hearted people. Visitors leave here with vivid memories and a yearning to return. Its out of the way location has protected it from mass tourism & almost guarantees visitors a crowd free experience. Travelers seeking pristine oceans & reefs, lush jungle hikes, or an amazingly peaceful place to relax are those who will enjoy Kosrae most!
The 18-room complex oozes comfort, convenience and consideration. Lush tropical gardens surround the restaurant and bar, with an inviting swimming pool nearby for leisurely dipping. At Kosrae Nautilus Resort you will find friendly, comfortable surroundings just a stone’s throw from your own private beach.
Each room is air-conditioned with two double beds, a fridge, minibar, tea/coffee making facilities, 26-channel cable TV, direct-dial telephones, wireless internet access, solar water heaters, and daily room service. There are also 2 and 3 bedroom self contained apartments for guests looking to stay long term anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months.
Looking for a surf destination with a difference, where if there’s three other surfers in the water, it’s considered a busy day? Look no further.
The surf at Kosrae can range from long walls to stand-up barrels. Kosrae’s swell, tide, and winds make local knowledge a necessity. The best time of year to visit Kosrae is October through to March. During these months, consistent medium to large swells arrive from the north, north-east, and north-west, which make the waves appropriate for intermediate and advanced surfers.
Most of this surf happens on the western side of the island, which is only accessed by boat. Surfing on this section of the island also requires a permit, which we can arrange for you, along with a boat and a very experienced guide with lots of local knowledge.
