Having traveled most of Indonesia's provinces I was expecting much less so I was pleasantly suprised by hotel. Clearly this hotel could be much better. It is a good design and obviously a very big investment for someone. Bed was comfortable and view from rooms fantastic. They seem to be trying to save money on electricity as most of the... More

Arriving in the late afternoon from Halmahera by ferry for our morning flight from Ternate to Jakarta we had to stay one night in this small town. The choice of hotels is very limited. We booked an executive deluxe room (balcony) with a view over town and harbour at the Amara Bela.. The room was a usual modern hotel room... More

Being the Best Hotel in Ternate does not mean this is the best hotel at all. It is a huge complex of a 4 star hotel. The room size is huge sufficient, even the deluxe room. The room is pretty clean, but the linen is tired and needed to be renewed so is the carpet. Many things were not maximised... More

As you drive up, it looks like an impressive hotel. But inside, it needs TLC. Carpets were frayed, mosquitos swarmed outside room doors, rooms were tired. It has all the elements to be good--great view, nice pool, nice staff. But it needs investment--especially before the 2016 solar eclipse comes through Ternate.

Ternate hotels are not generally up to western standards. The Bela has 195 rooms and we had room 2217 facing the sea. It had a nice balcony and good curtains to sustain privacy. The room was relatively large and the furniture in good shape. Tiled floors in the bathroom with shampoo only but the bathroom presented well. The room was... More

You may notice that the negative reviews about this place are mostly written by Indonesians whose expectations are too demanding in my view. I stayed four nights here on holiday and from a European's point of view this hotel was a wonderful surprise and has the best swimming pool I think I've ever seen: it's immensely long, about 200m I...

I booked two nights in the Amara Bela International in Ternate so that I could explore the twin clove islands of Ternate and Tidore.
