Palau Pacific Resort is located on a pristine white sand private beach on the island of Koror, the Republic of Palau. It is the ultimate tropical gateway in Micronesia, nestled in 64 acres of lush tropical gardens with the Pacific Ocean caressing its pristine white sand beach. This luxury resort in Palau features 160 unique villa-style guestrooms including the amenities of a world-class resort. The resort was built respecting the surrounding natural Palau environment, building no higher than the tallest coconut tree.
The Palau Pacific Resort is one of the primary supporters of conservation to protect Palau’s biodiversity for future generations. The resort contributes annually to various organizations and continues to promote eco-tourism activities.
The resort is just a 30-minute drive from the Palau International Airport. Transportation to and from the airport may be arranged for guests by NECO Shuttle bus service ($22.00 each way), private taxi, or car rental.

MARINE LIFE RESERVE BY KOROR STATE LAW:
Palau Pacific Resort Marine Sanctuary was established on December 2, 2002. The fringing reef sanctuary has a high biodiversity with over 566 species of marine life including algae, sea grass, coral, fish, and macroinvertebrates. This sanctuary is home to several endangered species: the famous giant clam, the humphead parrotfish, the humphead wrasse, and the hawksbill turtle.
PROTECTING WATER RESOURCES:
Palau has had dry seasons leading to water shortage and conservation. To ensure an adequate and safe water supply, the resort maintains its own source of water from rainwater and a deep well.

Most living things on earth such as people, plants, and animals enjoy the benefit of the sun. A solar module panel was installed in 2011 to generate solar energy.

WASTE PLASTIC OILING SYSTEM
Palau Pacific Resort has invested in an environmentally friendly machine that converts discarded plastic back into oil which is a blend of gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and some heavy oils. The oils are being used for tiki torches and small equipment. It can be processed further and could go straight into a diesel car.
