Accommodation: Blue Lagoon Resort & Dive Shop

When I first started researching about diving in truk, the first thing I thought about was - Why not go on the liveaboard's? After all, it sounds the best way to go - right? Well, all those thoughts went straight out of the window as soon as I stayed at the Blue Lagoon Dive Resort.

We had massive amounts of space, freedom, air conditioned en-suit rooms, huge menus to choose from, and the most strategically positioned for the wrecks! Most of the liveaboard's are "floating hotels" that stay in the same areas for a period of days, then move once or twice during the trip. Some liveaboard's, move to each site. This , again at first sounds like a great idea - but when you get 12-15 people descending onto the same wreck it takes the shine off the dive very quickly. With our policy of a max of 4-6 people per boat and 1 boat per wreck ensures that everyone has the best opportunities to dive clear water wrecks not in a dust cloud!

The resort is situated at the southern end of Moen Island, Gateway to the wrecks of Truk lagoon! The resort is the closest to all the deep wrecks east of Dublon Island, making trips out to the dive sites less than 15mins.

About the Resort

These are the standard rooms, each room is twin share or a double. You can see that both beds are doubles so one person doesn't have to rough it in a single! Every room has its own ensuite bathroom and toilet, air con, mini fridge for you cold drinks or even for putting a few beers from the market shop in after a great days diving!

Each room has an en suite and toilet. Shower bath and plenty of water to go round! There is even fresh drinking water put in the rooms free of charge each day!They also have toiletries, shampoo, soap etc for your use.

This is the type of view EVERY room has. There are NO "garden view" rooms as all rooms overlook the lagoon! Each night we just sit outside (maybe a G&T in hand) and watch the sunset. Each night a different experience! We would love you to come and experience this with us!

There is FULL FREE internet wireless access. It isn't broadband speed but its faster than dial up so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world the facility is available to do so. At present this can be accessed in the foyer in reception and also in the restaurant.

One of the things most on peoples minds when they go away is getting sick from badly prepared food or the lack of options if you are there for 2 weeks. On all of our trips no one has had any major problems with being sick from the food which is unprecedented!

With over 40 main dishes to choose from, traditional Japanese dishes to western prepared a la carte options. So there are no hidden problems here with the food!

You might order the chicken and get the fish one night, but hey, its the tropics and it all gets served with a smile!

The Chuukese people are modest, proud people who always greet you with a welcoming smile, welcome you in and bend over backwards to make your stay a memorable experience.
