I arrived here after three months in Borneo and it was just like coming home. From the moment I arrived I just relaxed, no more worrying about the next meal or even the next beer! Everything was just easy and effort free. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were spectacular, with so many different choices both vegetarian and not. So many discreet... More

love this place! Fantastic staff and owners, some of the best food I have had in Indonesia and close to both a great dive center (they drive you there for free, it takes 5 min-perfect!) and lots of land adventures. Came as a couple, but looking back I realize it would also be great with kids - not least the... More

A perfect place to spend your holidays if you want to relax, have incredible meals, dive at Bunaken and meet nice people. The British owners are really kind and they can offer you many tours around the place. Enjoy Bahowo!

This is a great place to see Sulawesi in a traditional village, from the free range pigs to the friendliest people in Indonesia. The owners Phil and Paula are good hosts, the breakfast is great and the bread is to die for, they also do a good spread in the evening, even if we did have to suffer the regular... More

We spent 4 nights at Bahowo Lodge, and wished we had twice as many! Phil and Paula are lovely hosts and spent lots of time with us. The staff .... lovely, no complaints. The Lodge itself is lovely, we used the family suite..which slept 4 of us very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and air-conditioned. The balcony is lovely and... More

I have just returned from my sixth stay at Bahowo Lodge. Over the last three years I have been a regular visitor both alone and with groups of up to 6 friends. In all aspects, this is one of Asia's many well kept secrets. From airport pickup, accommodation, service, catering and friendly laid back atmosphere, Bahowo Lodge is fantastic. This... More

We spent 3 nights at Bahowo lodge in the two bedroom suite, which was very spacious indeed. we very much enjoyed the company of lovely Phil and Paula who run the lodge and are very much involved in the village life. The food was abundant and delicious, and very much a high point. Phil and Paula were incredibly helpful in... More

I have stayed at Bahowo Lodge several times both with my husband and after he died. I have always been made extremely welcome by Phil and Paula. It is an ideal place for someone on their own, no eating in isolation in the evening, so much better than a lonely table on your own! The scuba diving in Bunaken National... More

We travelled to North Sulawesi on our Medical Elective and enlisted the help of the lovely Phil & Paula from Bahowo Lodge in planning our experience whilst there, following a recommendation from a friend. Their warm welcome and generosity made us feel immediately welcome and relaxed. During our time there, we got to know them and their staff very well... More

We booked at Bahowo Lodge because of the good ratings here, but we did not like the place at all. The hotel is not well maintained and dirty. But the worst thing is probably that you have to pay a high price for it. They charge 4 times the price a taxi would cost for the airport shuttle and after... More

Bahowo, Owner at Bahowo Lodge, responded to this review

We are sorry that this guest did not enjoy their one - night stay at Bahowo Lodge. Clearly there was on this occasion a mis - match between the Lodge and the type of accomodation that the guest was seeking. We are not a back - packers lodge and our rates are clearly advertised. Our airport transfers are comparable to... More
