“Yap is incredibly small and it's easy to walk around Colonia. While there isn't much infrastructure for tourism, the places that do exist are fantastic. The Oceania is a gem among them. Set back into the hills and barely visible from the surrounding areas, your personal bungalow is cozy and private. These delightful bungalows are rustic Yapese construction, but with all of the modern conveniences. The Oceania's reputation for amazing food is well deserved. JR knows his way around an ingredient or two, and we were never disappointed with our meals. Jenn and Mark, the proprietors, are full of local intel and freely share suggestions, ideas, or even just helpful hints on the local culture. Everyone on staff at the Oceania was really wonderful (special thanks to Cecilia and her brilliant hospitality!). We couldn't have asked for a better place to rest our heads or just laze about on the porch, or hang out in the open restaurant area, or... you get the point. The Oceania is a fabulous choice, and if you're going to Yap, it would be hard to pass up on such a unique opportunity. One thing to note; all jungles are trying to reclaim back their territory and erase all traces of human civilization. As such, don't expect an immaculate, Disneyland-esque aesthetic. A few rough edges are to be expected of this kind of climate and if that's not your style, then you may reconsider tropical islands as a vacation destination. In spite of the jungle's attempts, Yap has been our favorite vacation in the last 7 years, and the Oceania, Jenn, Mark, and everyone else played a large part in that. There is no question that we will be back in the coming years.”
