The Truk Stop Hotel offers a full line of amenities including a restaurant where guests can choose to dine inside in air-conditioned comfort or take their meals outside on the patio next to the world famous Truk Lagoon. The Mangroove Bar is open every afternoon and evening for cocktails and drinks under the stars! Built over the lagoon adjacent to the dive shop and restaurant patios, this wooden decked bar is the perfect place to rest and relax in the afternoon, watch the sunset and have pre dinner drinks.
The hotel also features the Hard Wreck Café & Bar, which is often frequented by plenty of colourful characters and considered by virtually anyone who's been to Chuuk to be the island's premier "watering hole". An onsite bakery will satisfy even the sweetest tooth. The Body Shop offers rejuvenating therapeutic massages after a long day of diving. Late-model car rentals & local tour activities can be arranged through reception.
Chuuk has a living culture plus a rich World War II history that is very visible today and well worth seeing. The Truk Stop Hotel offers a land tour of Weno Island that lasts about 4 hours and winds its way slowly through the past, the present, and gives just the slightest glimpse of the future. The tour gives the visitor an excellent view of the town, stores and businesses, land, housing and structures, agriculture, its people, and the influence of past influences that impacted their lives.
Places of interest on the island include the Chuuk Ethnographic Exhibition Centre, Nefo Cave, Mt Tonachou, Xavier High School & the Japanese Lighthouse.
Chuuk also has much to offer through its own cultural history and visitors can view Mortlockese tapuanu masks, fenai love sticks, war clubs, natural fiber lava lavas, and other culturally significant items.
Truk Stop Hotel has stable mobile phone reception. Prepaid local SIM cards are available. Guests can enjoy wireless broadband internet connection in the restaurant or on the patio for free.
