Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers Wins Value For Money Award


Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers has been named as the best value for money resort in the Pacific/Indian Ocean region by Scuba Diving Magazine.

The magazine’s readers vote for the yearly poll to better reflect the views of the diving public. This year, to take the disruption caused by COVID worldwide and the various travel restrictions into account, the magazine aggregated the votes from the 2020, 2021 and 2022 surveys.

Commenting on the win, the resort’s owner Bill Acker stated:

“Throughout our 35-year history we’ve been given multiple awards, but this year’s recognition is a welcome shot in the arm. This year’s results combining three consecutive years of surveying show that, together with our staff, my family and I manage to give our guests the experience, service and value they expect and are looking for.”

While co-founder and Bill’s spouse Patricia Acker added:

“We were one of the first islands to close the borders and may be the last to reopen, but we’ll be back stronger and better than before.”
