The Carolines Resort is the most unique resort in Palau. All of our "rooms" are actually private hand crafted bungalows. Our bungalows are modeled after traditional Palauan architecture using local materials such as bamboo, mahogany and mangrove. The structures are made almost entirely from wood. These bungalows may sound rustic but they are equipped with the amenities that you would expect from most hotels; like: air conditioning, TV and VCR, refrigerator, mini bar and private bath. Each bungalow has a private balcony so you can enjoy our spectacular view or enjoy the sunset from your bungalow.
Our staff strives to make your stay in Palau as memorable as possible. We are happy to go the extra mile to your trip more enjoyable. If you are looking for something to do while you’re visiting us just ask us about things to do while you’re visiting us. We can make any adventure happen for you, just tell us what you’d like to do and we’ll do our very best to make it all a reality.
The Carolines Resort is often referred to as "the small resort on top of the hill." This refers to our size and location. We currently boast a modest, 7 private bungalows situated on a secluded hilltop over looking the beautiful Philippine Sea. If you are looking for a place to get away from all the traffic, all the bustle of the city and all the people; then we are the place that you are looking for. A pleasant ocean breeze greets you as you return from the day’s activities just in time to watch the sunset from you bungalow. We are one of the only resorts that can say you can sit on your own private balcony and watch the sunset every evening of the year, as long as Mother Nature permits, of course.
Our beautiful bungalows are modeled after traditional Palauan architecture. We have handcrafted these wonderful structures using local materials such as bamboo, mahogany, and mangrove. Each bungalow has its own private balcony that’s perfect for enjoying our spectacular view, reading a good book, having a good chat or sipping a glass of wine while enjoying a fabulous sunset from your bungalow.
Our bungalows may seem rustic from the outside, but each bungalow is equipped with air conditioning, TV and VCR, refrigerator, minibar and private bathroom; all the conveniences you’ve come to expect from a resort.
One of the comments that we hear the most from our visitors and locals alike is that we have the best view on the island. Be our guest and come check it out for yourself. We hope you’ll agree!
