Great staff. Good service. Prime location. And an unspoiled south sea island! This is the place. Spent a week here and wished we could have stayed longer. Decent snorkeling practically on our doorstep. Really good snorkeling outside the reef for a reasonable fee. He opted for the resort scuba and raved about it. I just snorkeled some more.

We spent two weeks at the Nautilus and were once again treated with incredible hospitality by Doug and Sally, the owners of the property. This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for customer service, friendliness of the staff and cleanliness. We dove with Doug and his team as well. The visibility of the water was astounding... More

This was our second time visiting Kosrae and staying at the Nautilus. We love the Nautilus. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The pool area was a nice place to relax and cool off.

If you are looking for the place in paradise, Nautilus is it. Older structure but nice and clean with air condition. Best on Island. Good food and diving. The staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is across the street from the ocean.

Doug was a fantastic host but his restaurants lack of food let him down a bit. I understand food supply in the islands is in frequent but it was unfortunate to find a number of items on the menu un-orderable. Doug diving knowledge on the island is excellent, and his gear looks to be in pretty good shape but the... More

It's no secret that Kosrae is remote, and this requires us to order our frozen food 6 weeks before it's arrival. The month before your visit turned into our busiest since 9/11, and we had no way of planning for that. We grow some of our own vegetables and have very fresh delicious local fish 99% of the time. We... More

Doug and Sally are excellent hosts, genuinely wants to ensure you have a good time. Doug was so helpful with advice, especially regarding snorkelling around the blue hole.

My husband and I chose to visit Kosrae Nautilus Resort as part of our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our choice!

We were picked up by a van from the resort from the airport, as we were on a one-week package that included food, non-alcoholic drinks (more about this later), room, and two boat dives per day for five days. Except for arrival and departure days, just the last full day was a non-dive day. Make sure to bring your own... More

Hi Nancy, unfortunately we didn't get to meet you when you were here, as we were away on vacation too. We'd have liked to have personally thanked you for helping out with our solar panel crowdfunding project, by purchasing your room and diving package.
