Where to stay in Palau

Enjoying the vast majority of the country's accommodations, the town of Koror on Koror Island remains the most popular place to stay in Palau. Hotels, rental apartments, and luxury resorts are all available, many with sea views, tour-booking services, and a range of other facilities. For standard, cost-effective lodgings suitable for backpackers and those wanting to keep on the move, stay in the town center along Main St. If you're willing to pay a little extra for more seclusion and extensive facilities, consider the hotels or resorts on the islands directly linked by road to Koror, or opt for a private bungalow on one of the more northerly or southerly islands accessible by boat.
