We stayed at Carolines about a week ago for 10 days. I must say that the view outside our balcony was absolutely stunning. The kind of place where you can hideaway and reconnect back with nature. Really cozy with breathtaking jungle and ocean views. When I say "jungle" I mean jungle I woke up every morning not to my buzzing iphone but to the sounds of the roosters and birds as the sunrises. Sitting outside the patio in itself was a treat for me, fresh air while watching the sunrise/sunset and the exotic birds fly by (photographer's treat) -when it gets dark you'll see a billion stars...
The bungalows itself is basic with a rustic island feel which was a nice change for us (something different from the usual commercialized hotels). The bungalows a well maintained and is kept very clean. Maid service was available daily (fresh towels, coffee, fresh sheets etc.) Breakfast was delivered to our cottage every morning and
served with seasonal fruit. My favourite was the french toast ( I had it I think 4 days in a row =o)! The older lady who prepared the breakfast was a good cook / yummy home cooking ).
As guests at the Carolines we also had access to Palau Pacific Resort's facilities (pool, tennis courts etc.) which was a nice option on days we didn't dive and just wanted to relax. The only
thing that Caroline Resort can improve on is the road up to the bungalows it needed work but it didn't affect the overall experience of our stay.
Above all, we were very impressed with the service that was provided to us. It was definitely one of best we have ever had. All the hotel staff greeted us every morning as we walk on by and was very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Carolines to all my family and friends. We can't wait till we get back - absolutely loved it!

... Wednesday and hit the Jellyfish Lake first. This is a small lake where jellyfish were trapped a bizzillion years ago and have evolved...sorry Christians. They survive from the sun via photosynthesis and do not sting...they were everywhere and it was really cool to see. Next we hit three dives which to say the least were exhausting but nice stuff to see all in all. The seas were still pretty stirred up so conditions were not the best but we did get ...
... foundations and the really beautiful thing is, they don't just write checks and call themselves philanthropists. They take the money and they go themselves and are very hands on and take action with their money. For example, Vicki Sant, the one who helped fund the Renew Organization in Bhutan with the Queen. There's this Japanese woman, Atsuko Tako Fish (I struggle so hard not to call her Fish Taco) - but she created a foundation that educates and ...
... from diving down and swimming among them. It was a little like swimming with pulsating aliens.
After about 40 minutes in the middle of the lake we headed back to shore and trekked back to the boat.
Today we were diving around Ulong Island. Our first dive was at Sears Tunnel. As the name suggests its tunnel with a large cavern. This was one of the darker tunnels/caves we’ve been in on this trip so we all pretty much ended up using ...
... I learned from my trips to Hawaii that the sun block, though fluid, rinses off your body in the ocean and its properties sink to the bottom of the ocean, covering the corals and live organisms, blocking their ability to absorb sunlight, and then die off. Therefore, I made it a point not to put on sunblock unless necessary and instead wear a long sleeve SPF shirt. I put a little on my face and neck, then off I went. The abundance of ...
