We spent 6 nights at Traders Ridge and we really enjoyed our stay in Yap, which is a beautiful island. The hotel is a very nice wooden colonial-style building, located in the main village Colonia. We chose the Oceanview room, which had a beautiful view on the Chamorro bay. At the time we were there (Aug08) the hotel had just...

This is a wonderful place to stay. The food is done by Ryan from Texas, and he truly wants to please. He will make you something special if you don't like what is on the menu. We did an island trip to learn about the people of Yap and a snorkeling trip to see the Manta Rays, both we booked...

We stayed at one of the other hotel on Yap but by farmost this hotel is the nicest. We visit it a few times for lunch and dinner and we we're a little bit dissapointed not to stay here. The staff is so unbelievable friendly, they will make you feel like home. A negative side is the food (dinner mostly)....

For divers, the choice is between Manta Bay and Traders Ridge. For charm and class, as well as diving, Traders Ridge has Manta Bay beat, hands down. Our room was lovely, overlooking the pool and bay. The building is all new, but built to look like an old colonial mansion. There are wood floors, period funishings, and everything is very...

We stayed four nights at Traders Ridge. It's probably the best in Yap (there are only 138 rooms in the entire area) but regardless, it's a comfortable hotel. You can go their website to view photos so I won't describe the facility except to say it's clean and the staff is friendly (almost too friendly if that's possible). The rooms...

When in Yap there are really only two places to stay, either Trader's Ridge or Pathways. The advantages of Traders are many. If you are the kind of Traveler that wants the "first" class experience (or as close as you can get in Yap) then you should head directly to Trader's. There have well appointed rooms, flawless service, and a...

I think by far this is the nicest hotel on the Island. We were there for Diving and used the dive shop affiliated with the resort. The rooms were clean and large. Staff very friendly but some a little shy. Good: Rooms, layout of the resort, pick up at the airport (they own their own lounge at the airport and...

Beautifully built from native wood, and impeccably maintained, this small resort is an unknown gem. So unknown, in fact, that we were the only guests here for three days (and apparently the foreseeable future upon our departure). Yet the place is gorgeous, beautifully maintained, and friendly. Food was excellent as well. Not cheap, but wonderful atmosphere.

Traders Ridge Resort, Yap. This is the best hotel on Yap. We stay there 5 nights in March 2006 and it was better than the best hotel we had in the Pacific. The owner and the staf of this hotel are as brothers and sisters... For us no question, Traders Ridge Resort, the best there is...

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at the Trader's Ridge Resort (known locally as TR). The 22 room hotel and grounds are much more attractive than the others in town, with native art displayed everywhere to great effect. Our room was large, attractive and very functional; the bathroom was fine, but finished to a lower standard. The pleasant...
