The Carolines Resort is often referred to as "the small resort on top of the hill." This refers to its size and location. Only 8 private bungalows are situated on a secluded hilltop overlooking the beautiful Philippine Sea. At the end of the day a stunning sunset awaits you on your balcony, overlooking Palau's magnificent Rock Islands.
The Carolines Resort is the most unique resort in Koror. All of the rooms are actually private hand crafted bungalows. The bungalows are modelled 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: air conditioning, TV and VCR, refrigerator, mini bar and private bath. Each bungalow has a private balcony so you can enjoy a spectacular view from your bungalow.
The resort has no pool and no restaurant. However, Caroline's guests can purchase a day use pass for the nearby Palau Pacific Resort with access to its sandy beach and resort facilities. The resort provides a shuttle bus transfer to a nearby swimming pool, tennis courts and fitness centre.
The Pacific Treasures (the in-house handicrafts shop) has many beautiful clothes for men, women and children as well as many handicrafts like hand-woven baskets, hand-carved boxes, masks, stone and marble statues, original ceramic vases, gold and silver jewellery, the list goes on and on. After you've done your shopping, sit back and enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee, a glass of wine or a cold beer. No visit would be complete without a taste of the famous homemade rum cake!
There is no internet access at Carolines. Internet and email access is widely available in downtown Koror. International calling cards can be purchased. Fish'n Fins and Sam's Tours also provide WiFi hotspots.
A small family hotel with lots of charm and the views are really special. Please note that the distances of some bungalows to the reception are a bit far and the path is also steep. For almost all activities from the hotel you will usually need a taxi, this applies to everyday dinners, but also for the visit to the Palau Pacific Resort.
