Doug and his staff are wonderful. I hope it continues with the new owners. The staff is kind and accommodating. The restaurant offers excellent fresh fish. The rooms are clean. And the pool is a nice bonus for non-saltwater swimming.

Myself, my wife and 6 year old son recently visited Kosrae from July 29 to August 2. The resort and Island was fantastic, great hospitality and service. It exceeded our expectations for an Island so far away from anything else. The food was fresh, local and tasty. The diving was amazing and the staff went above and beyond the typical... More

The Nautilus was a hidden gem in this tropical paradise. The rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. The restaurant served the best fish and the wait staff was great - thank you Julie, Amanda, Wallace. Mary at the front desk was very helpful as well. Everyone was very accomodating when we had a rather large party with islanders... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations for a relatively remote island. The rooms were quiet and clean. The restaurant was consistently good, and the staff very attentive if a bit slow (island time!). The location right in front of the Blue Hole was a pleasant surprise for a quick snorkel - gear can be borrowed from the front desk - in... More

A group of us went to dive and everything was wonderful at this dive resort! The rooms were comfortable, well decorated and very clean! Hot water pot and coffee, tea and condiments provided.

The Nautilus is a great place to stay on Koshrae, especially if you are travelling with children. Of the three resorts on the island, the Nautilus is the only one with a pool. All the staff are friendly and highly responsive. The rooms are simple but modern, and very clean. The pool is situated in the center of the resort,... More

Glad you and your family had a great time. We are working at the moment to send the free wifi signal to the rooms also, but things are never as simple as the instructions make out when it comes to computers etc. Anyway, it sounds like you enjoyed what Kosrae is really all about. More

This is a wonderful resort roughly in the center of activities in Kosrae. Doug--the owner--was an outstanding host. He replied to our emails and requests on the same day. We requested rooms 1 & 2 for their proximity to the lobby and restaurant as well as the free wifi that intermittently extended that far. We would notice that our iPads... More

Nautilus Resort is a relaxing, no-nonsense place to stay on the remote island of Kosrae. Staff is welcoming, friendly and helpful. Don't expect five star hotel luxury, this is a laid back place with very basic facilities and amenities. It is a perfect homebase for dives, snorkels and visits of the island. Some tips: - bring mosquito repellent, especially outside... More
