In Preparations for Border Re-Opening
Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers
(Former PATA Micronesia Chapter Chair)
We truly believe that someone’s vacation starts the moment he/she starts inquiring about their next vacation. Our new website – stay tuned – will be more informative and give visitors a virtual experience on what to expect on Yap and at Manta Ray Bay Resort& Yap Divers. The new website will have an easy-to-use online booking module with options to pre-book tours, massages, and many more of our amenities. Needless to say, that the “old-fashioned”way of making your reservation via email, phone or chat is still possible and that Bill and his staff are readily available to answer any questions our guests might have.
Obviously, cleaning and sanitation practices will be in line with the standards required in the post COVID19-era, but those will mainly take place behind the scenes.
Our normal dive day will now include wake-up coffee/tea in your room, breakfast, 3 dives with lunch, ordered from a menu, served on the dive boat between the 2nd and 3rd dives. NITROX is also included with this package for all Enriched Air certified divers. This change is a result of the overwhelming demand and success of our SuperSize packages from the past.
As we speak, we’re working on improving the Mnuw, our floating bar/restaurant. We are extending the roof on the Crow’s Nest which, along with retractable plastic window sheets, will allow us to continue service even during rain showers. We are also replacing the current teak deck with Trex composite decking. This means we will no longer need to cut wood anymore, as this material is maintenance free. Another way for us to contribute to a more sustainable environment.
A new lunch and dinner menu will be presented once we’re open again with our own “Mnuw Hoagies” using freshly baked bread, more local ingredients with our dinner menu. Don’t worryour famous stone money pizza and award-winning stone money beer will be there as well to give our guests that unique experience they are looking for.
For our business travelers, we are introducing a package that includes transfers, room, Wi-Fi, breakfast, coffee/tea service as part of their daily wake-up service and car rentalat very affordable rates. For those who want to explore Yap’s unique and ancient culture, we have our new airconditioned tour bus waiting for you while a stop at our beach with brand new koyengs (cabana’s) is kind of a must.
In case you didn’t know it yet……….we have some great “Grand Re-opening” special promotions for you to choose from See this link for more details!
