The Pathways Hotel
Lonely Planet review
The Pathways Hotel is a special little place - a warm, welcoming and beautiful eco-resort. The hotel is a collection of free-standing cottages perched up in Colonia's jungle-covered hills, balancing modern comforts with traditional Yapese aesthetics.
Each thatched cottage, built with native materials, features pleasant sitting verandas, many with a clear view of Chamorro Bay. The cottages are surrounded by lush greenery and are connected by elevated pathways that allow you to command all you survey; they also feature screened windows and have a pervading rustic appeal. The resort was knocked around by Supertyphoon Sudal in 2004 but has proved to be remarkably resilient, something for which we can all be thankful. The cottages have been restored to their former glory and only the traditional Yapese meeting house remains to be resurrected. Otherwise, all is shipshape for your travelling pleasure. There's a wonderful courtyard restaurant and bar, as atmospheric as you might expect and full of bonhomie and wellbeing.
