1st I would say that I enjoyed the island but was really disappointed with Pondok lestari. The people that owned it where so unfriendly, the only time the old lady smiled was when you gave her money, any other time you asked her something oh I don't speak English. Most of the time it doesn't matter if the people that... More

Alright place, but kind of pricey compared to the other options on the Togeans where you get so much more for the same price (e.g. Bolilanga). As the others said, the breakfast is meager and no fruits are served. No meat is served, so you should better like fish if you go there! But the fish is amazing, always freshly... More

Cheapest option in kadidiri but perfect place to stay. The family which run the resort is friendly and funny. I stayed there with my girlfriend and we paid a price for person with all 3 meals included (not big portions to eat and fish, fish and fish). If you need relax is perfect, just ask to go with Akah when... More

Averrage accomodation on an averrage beach with not so clean shared "Mandi"... don't expect a hidden paradise here, because it shares it's small beach with two other resorts... Don't stay there for to many days - there are many places on the Togians way nicer than Kadidiri!

This place was really good, as described in the other reviews. However there is one huge downside: the long-term occupant/manager Hans the German. I stayed at Lestari about a year ago and recently learned that this guy is still there. Words cannot describe how annoying this guy is. Took somewhat of a manager-role in this (previously) family-run establishment and is... More

I stayed at Pondok Lestari for 4 nights. I quite enjoyed a spirit of the place. Chalets are basic but as a backpacker you should expected. Free coffee and tea is a nice refreshment during a hot day. Beach is right front of your accommodation. Only think which I really do not like it was a breakfast. They should have... More

Nice place if you looking for low budget accomodation. Nice traditional meals handmade by Mama (the owner). Tea and coffee everytime. Hospitality like a big family. Sitting and singing aroung the fire after dinner. Don't forge to try arak and buy the Pondok Lestari liontin necklace.

We stayed with our family (2 kids) 6 nights at Pondok Lestari and we enjoyed it very much. The facilities are very basic, that means your private bathroom consists of a squat toilet, a barrel of salt water to flush and a barrel of fresh water for showering. Electricity is on from about 6pm to midnight. The food is tasty,... More

I spent my first night on the island at Kadidiri Paradise because Lestari was full (shows it popularity). I was glad to have moved to Lestari as not only was it cheaper, but the room was cleaner and it was looked after a lot better than the room I had in Paradise. It is the cheapest option on the island... More

The cheapest most authentic place to stay in Togean. Rustic accommodation on the beach, great food and restaurant atmosphere The experience of a life time to go fishing and diving with Aka to catch the evening meal. Guitar and fire on the beach till well after lights out tops off a great day. Hans, who often stays here in Feb... More
