Resort Description

Palau Royal Resort is one of only two resorts in Koror offering a private beach and shallow lagoon. 

The hotel is located just outside Koror, offering a tranquil oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. The resort is tucked within well-kept tropical gardens and boasts two large swimming pools surrounded by padded sun loungers and palm trees. Each room is freshly decorated and offers a balcony with island or ocean views. 

The hotel offers a restaurant and two bars which serve noodles, croissants, steak, seafood an more. Waves Restaurant is open daily from 6:30 am till 10 pm, serving a la carte and buffet treats for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Come evening, make sure you stop by Breeze Bar - an open air bar located on a waterfront deck. Its no-doubt on of the best places to watch the sunset around Koror. 

Palau offers a world of exploration for divers. Due to its often stronger currents, it is a fab destination for drift diving. During your stay, its likely you'll see blacktip reef sharks, hammerheads, mantas, dolphins and turtles. For something unique, dont miss the jellyfish lake - swim or snorkel with hundreds of no-sting jellies!
