The Palau Siren was built in 2012 and is handcrafted from ironwood and teak. It was renovated in 2014 with modern amenities without losing that old Phinisi style that it has. Palau is a fascinating place where three of the world’s major currents meet. You will be treated to 1500 different fish species as well as fantastic corals. The lounge areas and sun deck offer the perfect relaxation options between dives. They also have massage options that are available daily.
