“Can't Wait To Go Back!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2009

If you like scuba diving, swimming, etc., and eco-friendly - this is the place
Katrina and Bruce (owners) are so warm, friendly and charming and very accommodating - the diving is terrific and at the end of the dive day, they clean and store your gear for the next day - What a gem - I look forward to going back when time permits

It ain't the Plaza, but that's the point. You're out in nature, and it's wonderful. Katrina and Bruce make you feel like you are true house guests (but there is a bill, which by my estimation was good value for the buck) and they are there to enjoy your company as much as make sure you enjoy yourself.

Yes, it's rustic. No, there's no A/C. Don't go to the restaurant if you're in a hurry (but here, they always wait for you, so who's in a hurry anyway...) But that's all the reasons we came to Kosrae!

Food was good, and we were taken care of so well, that we ate all of our meals happily there too.

Overall, it was the service level that made this place far more than was expected. Great service, slow pace, middle of the jungle: you just have to relax.

Where does one start..afraid of falling coconuts?..Kosrae Village is unforgettable..this is getting away with a twist...you are far away..and worth every minute of the effort of getting far away to do so..No shopping, no traffic, no hassle. Laid back in a beautiful surrounding. An attentive staff. Great restaurant for all meals-- but don't expect vintage wine. Don't expect manicured gardens. Everything is wild. Mosquito nets and spray are provided (a very minor inconvenience). Expert and excellent diving and snorkeling support. KVR has excellent dive masters, a dive shop and boats.The 43 mile reef surrounding the island is one big dive spot. They know all the best locations and almost know each fish by first name. BTW everyone speaks English and is well educated. The currency is the U.S. dollar. It is clean, safe and friendly. Not only KVR but the whole of Kosrae. We will be back!

I took two dives with the friendly folks at Kosrae Village Ecolodge after eating at their restaurant a day earlier. Katrina Adams and her husband Bruce are extremely nice folks who built this amazingly cool ecolodge resort with their own hands starting in 1995.

They were super helpful with the gear, packed a delicious lunch, and stuck next to me during the dives to Hiroshi Point and Boundaries, two of the island's 58 moored dive sites.

The divemaster was Ben and the boat diver was Gordon. They even motored into calmer seas during lunch so we could watch the school kids race their canoes.

The viz was amazing. The water temp was 85. And I've never seen as much sea life as I saw on the two dives with them anywhere else. We saw barracuda, turtles, and zillions of fish. If you have the opportunity to dive in Kosrae, take a boat out with Sleeping Lady Divers.

Katrina even burned a CD with hundreds of great underwater photos on it for the articles i was going to write.
Thanks,

If you are going to Kosrae and want to experience the island culture and lifestyle, you must stay at Kosrae Village. The other hotels on the island are more like spruced up American roadside motels. Instead, Kosrae Village offers a totally unique experience. Sleep listening to the crashing waves and feel the cool breeze without a need for a.c.

Island Magazine ranks the KVR Top 5 in the World and I AGREE!

I tell everyone I meet and as I have written in my emails..

Enjoy sunrise from your front porch as it lights up the ocean. Enjoy a cup of coffee as all bungalows have coffee makers with freshly ground coffee and small refrigerators. This is a special touch not offered by other eco-resorts in the region and a highly valued "extra" when a rain storm passes over and you would prefer to stay in rather having to walk to the restaurant for coffee. With the exception of this place, there are no ocean front properties in the region that allow me to drink fresh coffee on my porch in a rocking chair as I enjoy the ocean- beachfront!


See my night photo from my bungalow. The bungalows are built on the edge of the shore, under the cooling canopy of lush trees. Each bungalow has 110 electric currency, hot and cold running water, modern toilets and shower. I have stayed at neighboring eco-resorts and they do not offer a refrigerator, clean drinking water, fruit and freshly ground coffee for their guests.

For those that prefer air conditioning for whatever reason, I have stayed in one of their bungalows with air conditioning and enjoyed the stay as much as the open air bungalows.

With no dangerous animals on Kosrae, the KVR is a very safe and extremely hospitable place to stay. They have the island’s only first class 5 Star PADI dive shop too.
