This was an excellent place to stay, very quiet and a lovely view across to Mahawu volcano. The shared balcony 2 room cabins make a great option for a family. The cabins are traditional wooden style Indonesian houses which could be improved with a fan but are otherwise excellent. This is not a 5 star resort but it's got everything... More

We spent nights at this great little hotel and thought it was great,Modi and his staff do everything possible to make sure you feel like a valued guest. We originally booked a standard room but had concerns when we arrived about it being so close to the road so we were immediately upgraded to another more expensive room at no... More

Very nice and clean bungalows, very helpful staff. You can rent a bike to look for the attractions around. Good fun for a day or two. Arrange a pick up or a taxi because on foot from the main road is rather far. The food came from a restaurant nearby (green garden) because their own restaurant was being renovated. The... More

We stayed at the Highland Resort for 3 nights and were extremely happy with everything. The staff was extremely helpful with all concerns. We especially enjoyed the organised trip to the Tangkoko National Park where we saw Tarsiers and Black macaques, the stop at the extremely delicious Danau Tonado Restaurant and we enjoyed exploring the area by ourselves with mikrolets...

Had the most wonderful time at Highland Resort! To us western travelers, it felt like a nice luxury resort at cheap price -- I couldn't recommend it more highly Very centrally located in the Tomohon area and easy to get around from, but while I was there I felt like I was in my own secluded paradise with views overlooking...

My visit to the place was just amazing. I spent four nights in here and it was raining almost every day the whole day. Yet I really enjoyed my stay. I stayed in a deluxe bungalow which was huge. There is plenty of space and also the bathroom is big. Bungalows also has own terrace. In room you have a... More

I was not impressed by this hotel. The service was pretty bad, and the staff not very helpful, except for 1. The dishes after breakfast was left a long time, we usually had to ask the staff to take it away. This even though there was staff nearby just hanging around. We had one of the newly renovated rooms, a... More

Dear Livia, thanks a lot for taking the time to write a feedback, even if it's not a nice one for us. However, negative reviews often help more than positive ones. You can see here on TripAdvisor that the vast majority of our guests are enjoying their stay with us, therefore I'm very sorry that yours was less than optimal.... More

The resort is perfect to start tours of the Minahasa region. We booked the "Trekking" and the "Minahasa" tours via the hotel and they were a bit pricy but worth it (Advice: Ask for Elvis as your guide)! When we arrived, we were upgraded to a suite due to low season, which was fantastic! Dinner can be ordered from restaurants... More

We didn't organize anything in advance, even though we arrived the day just after Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised about the beautiful cottages, each with its own veranda overlooking the spectacular green scenery. Even though we only booked a standard room, we were upgraded because it was low season. And we were even more surprised when we got invited by... More
