Palau Pacific Resort

Top 10 Diving Hotels Worldwide

Palau Pacific Resort offers excellent diving and a laidback island atmosphere


Koror, Palau
Palau Pacific Resort

This charming resort doesn't force its tropical atmosphere with a sleek interpretation of island living. Instead, it has an appealing old school vibe. Think mid-century Tiki without the kitsch. On-site Splash Dive Center (with a 5-star PADI rating) offers underwater adventures for all levels: Discover Diving courses, open water certifications and advanced training. The waters off Palau boast visibility up to 150 feet, more than 1,300 types of fish and more than 700 coral species. Divers can brush up on their WWII history by exploring the easily reached wrecks of downed warships and airplanes. For an adrenaline rush, head for the Blue Corner, a shark-filled underwater ridge that plunges thousands of feet into the open ocean.
