TRUK BLUE LAGOON RESORT & BLUE LAGOON DIVE SHOP
Located in a lush tropical setting among tall coconut palms, the Truk Blue Lagoon Resort (the only resort hotel on Moen Island) offers a breathtaking view of the famous Truk Lagoon. This middle-sized hotel offers a reasonable standard of accommodation, but is not luxurious. The hotel’s low two storey design, with 56 spacious rooms, blends with the island’s tropical atmosphere. Superior rooms (which are marginally nicer) are on the first floor, Standard Rooms are on the ground floor. The restaurant offers local seafood dishes as well as International and Asian cuisine. A beach bar and cocktail lounge provide the perfect setting for a relaxing drink after diving. Wander through the palm-shaded gardens or take a refreshing swim in the lagoon.
The famous Blue Lagoon Dive Shop, Truk’s premier dive centre, is our choice for the finest shore-based diving. Blue Lagoon Dive Shop was owned by the late Kimiuo Aisek, who witnessed the battles as a youth and subsequently charted many of the ‘lost’ wrecks, and is now run by his son Gradvin. Divers are collected from the dock outside the Truk Blue Lagoon Resort each day by the fast wooden dive boat from Blue Lagoon Dive Shop. Night dives can be arranged locally. Nitrox is available.
Price from $1178 for 7 nights. Includes: 7 nights room-only accommodation on a twin/share basis in a Standard Room at the Truk Blue Lagoon Resort; 5 days of diving (2 boat dives per day, dive guide). Supplement for a third boat dive each diving day: $33. A Chuuk State Dive Permit fee of $30 (subject to change) is payable locally. Airport transfers: $13 return. Reduction for non-divers. Single Occupancy Supplement: $455 for 7 nights.
