Kosrae Village

Kosrae is a stunningly beautiful island in Micronesia, with a high mountainous interior covered in lush rainforest jungle, surrounded by a pristine hard coral reef. The reef is extremely healthy and rich in invertebrate and fish life. The diving is suitable for both beginning and advanced divers, as it is both physically easy and fascinating because of the diversity.

Award winning Kosrae Village is tiny (10 individual cottages) and very private. The cottages are built of local materials in the local style - thatch, mangrove timbers and reed siding. All cottages are surrounded by tropical foliage and nestled under large trees within 50 feet of the ocean.

Explore the many sides of amazing Kosrae. Cultural tours, excursions to the Lelu and Menka ruins, outrigger canoe or kayak trips through the largest and oldest mangroves in the Pacific, rainforest hiking and climbing as well as snorkeling and Scuba diving with experienced, highly trained local guides.

Sleeping Lady Divers is their PADI 5 Star Dive Center, a full service dive and repair center, it offers a complete range of Scuba classes, from experiential to instructor.

The onsite restaurant is one of the best in the region, featuring local, and Pacific Rim cuisine as well as vegetarian and international dishes.
