For a land-based trip, the Palau Pacific Resort is most definitely the place to stay here if you want something high quality though it would be going too far to call it luxurious.

If you're looking to stay in a typical five-star hotel, then Palau probably isn't for you. But if you're in search of world-class diving, accessible from comfortable, traditionally appointed accommodation, then you may be in luck. The Palau Pacific Resort might not be the swankiest of resorts, but it is by far the best place to stay in Palau. More importantly, it has its very own dive centre on site, so diving couldn't be easier.

The Palau Pacific Resort is set in 24 acres of lush, tropical gardens, including an amazing orchid farm. With over 160 rooms it's not what could be called a boutique resort but it does have atmosphere. Make sure you request the newer wing as it makes all the difference.

Dining at the Palau Pacific Resort is done in one of two restaurants; the open-air Coconut Terrace and the slightly more formal Meduu Ribtal. Both restaurants have a distinct Japanese flavour to them with excellent sushi and sashimi.

Situated at the end of Palau Pacific Resort's private beach, Splash is a comprehensive dive centre with an excellent small shop attached. Alternatively you can dive with Neco Marine or Fish 'n' Fins, both of which have an excellent relationship with the resort.

Why we love it

The Palau Pacific Resort is certainly the best placed to stay at for a land-based diving adventure in Palau.
