Manta Ray Bay Resort – free holidays for frontline healthcare workers


Manta Ray Bay Resort

Diving into the warm waters of a tropical island surrounded by gentle manta rays and colourful reef fish may sound like the makings of a sleep-inducing dream machine for frontline healthcare workers right now. But thanks to Manta Ray Bay Resort, that dream will become reality for 20 deserving individuals when they head to the remote island of Yap for a weeklong, stress-free journey of a lifetime.

Manta Ray Bay Resort and Yap Divers is inviting its past and current guests, and Facebook followers, to submit the names of people they know who have been working hard in the fight against COVID-19 for the chance to relax and refresh during seven nights and five days of diving at this award-winning hotel.

Submerging into the lush flora and fauna of the island’s protected reef, lounging by the infinity pool, experiencing the unique culture of this tropical paradise, enjoying a pint of the resort’s award-winning, brewed-on-the-premises Stone Money Beer, and more will be in store for these special guests during their stay.

“We’re looking forward to pampering a few of the many thousands of people around the world who have worked so hard for so long caring for patients during this pandemic,” said the resort’s owner, Bill Acker. “It’s a small but heartfelt gesture on our part in comparison to the sacrifices they have been making.”

Go to for the nomination form and rules. The deadline for entries is 31 December 2020 and winners will be notified on or around 1 January 2021.
