Resort Description

Cove Resort Palau is located on Malakal Island, a great location for divers and snorkelers alike. 

This waterfront oasis is perfect for those seeking adventure. Visit the nearby Rock Islands - over 400 uninhabited limestone islands of volcanic origin. Here you can discover WWII sites, hidden lagoons, white sand beaches, marine caves and a huge diversity of bird and plant life. Below the waves, you'll find over 385 species of coral and up to 12 species of shark! Palau is a destination for advanced divers as there can be strong currents - great for drift diving.

The resort is made up of 77 modern, fresh and recently refurbished rooms. All come with air conditioning, large comfortable beds, an en suite bathroom and a 48 inch flat screen TV. Outside your room, you'll find an open air restaurant with views of the marina, plus the largest lagoon-style pool on the island. The restaurant - The Hungry Marlin - serves seafood in a relaxed, sociable setting. Japanese, Italian and Indian restaurants are within walking distance, plus a speciality coffee stand and sandwich deli.
