Kosrae Nautilus Resort

Let Kosrae Nautilus Resort make your stay an exceptional one during your time in Kosrae.

With a private beach for your frontyard, comfortable accommodation and modern facilities, Kosrae Nautilus Resort is staffed by friendly faces ready to attend to your every comfort. The 18 air-conditioned rooms offer two double beds, 22-channel cable TV, a minibar, and tea and coffee making facilities with daily room service. Kosrae Nautilus Resort emphasises comfort, convenience and consideration. Striking tropical gardens surround the restaurant and bar, with an inviting swimming pool nearby for leisurely dipping.

The restaurant is open all day with a good selection of beer and wines from around the world. Dine in the island’s only air-conditioned restaurant, or enjoy the comfort of outside dining by the swimming pool with a selection of Western and local foods – think breadfruit chips and incredibly fresh fish. Wherever possible, the restaurant uses locally grown organic fruit and vegetables from its own garden and local farmers. For those who want to dine in the comfort of their own room, daily room service is available.

Whether you want to be adventurous, or just relax by the pool or on the beach, the choice is yours. Kosrae is an unspoiled paradise waiting to be discovered. Explore on foot or by car, follow a guide up Mt. Oma to visit multiple cascading waterfalls, or explore WWII Japanese caves hidden in the lush jungles of this island paradise. The nearby visitors centre can advise you on many historical island aspects. You can explore the 14th-century Lelu ruins, just a five-minute drive away or the resort can arrange scuba diving, surfing, guided hikes through the rainforest to the Menke ruins, or paddle through the winding mangrove channels in a kayak, where broad channels lead to lush inlets, and you can see all manner of fish, crabs, and perhaps even spot a large monitor lizard sunning in a tree.

One of Kosrae’s greatest attractions is the clear, clean ocean and its extraordinary living coral reefs that completely surround it. Offshore, the coral reefs slope steeply into the clear blue depths. Both vertical drop-offs and undulating profiles of cascading corals appear before you, as underwater visibility averages 100 to 200 feet. The reefs comprise hundreds of densely packed coral species, both hard and soft, attracting an abundance of marine life. A diver can easily observe 50 species of fish in a single dive. Turtles and rays inhabit the waters of this island paradise, and if you enjoy finding Nudibranchs and other macro subjects, you’ll be delighted.

Across the road from the resort is a large blue hole in the reef flat, halfway between the surf line and shore. Its calm waters provide an ideal place to snorkel and watch the tropical fish. In 2016, the resort was won in a raffle by Australian, Joshua Ptasznyk who now calls this tropical paradise home.
