“like in paradise....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

we stayed there for 8 days and we could enjoyed every minute. the bungalows are clean, the food is excellent and various and the staff friendly and honest. You really feel like a part of a big family! We did some diving and snorkling and could do a lot of excursions to other island. It was a really relaxing time and we are glad that we made this long trip to the togians. thanks to the staff for making the stay unforgettable for us! Keep that spirit.

stayed at this cottage for 2 days, spending new year's eve here with lots good friend, music, and food.
I like lunch and dinner when we had fresh fish, mixing traditional and a bit international food.
My room is the cheapest among all rooms in this cottage. Only consist of a bed (enough for 2 persons), mosquito net, small cupboard, and two pillows. For me the price is still worth it.
No private bathroom for my room and only 1 public bathroom available outside.
Had a great boat trip to Hotel California (the best hotel I have ever visited), Mariona Lake, and Karina beach.
This cottage surrounded by stunning coral reef, I saw clown fishes here
The owner is very nice and friendly. We played cinq-mille in the evening
I think I'll be back to this place for my next visit to Togean.
Amazing place in Indonesia. This is heaven!

Room Tip: prepare more cash to get better room with private bathroom and better view

Lovely place to stay. The beach, the cottages & the food are very good. we extend our stay from one night to one week just after arrived to the cottage. The owner & staff are very friendly. Clean water available all day and electricity during the night.

We stayed in one of the new cottages, which was nice and clean. The bathroom also looks really nice! You have a nice porch with a hammock and chairs and on the beach in front of the cottage are beach chairs. Like on most places at the Togeans the food was included. Our first evening meal was spagetti with a bit of ketchup and a minimal amount of cheese. Some "kroepoek" was also available. Since we were used to some choice for the evening meal on the Togean islands and we had heard the food at Fadhila was really good we were quite suprised with this.. We did complain about the spagetti meal to the manager who didnt seem too happy about us complaining and didnt seem to understand our problem, but the lunch and the evening meal the day after were good! Choice on veggies, fish and rice and it was really tasty.
For me the service wasnt great overall.. When we arrived they had ran out of -dry- towels and for other things like an extra blanket you had to ask serveral times. Also our bill at the end of the stay wasnt calculated correctly.
Overall, i think the resort is quite okay, but it didnt have the nice charm and athmosphere like some of the other resorts on the islands..

very good atmosphere in this resort. Food is very good, you have nice breakfast and a lot of fresh fish. We would have hopped for a better dive center (no O2 on the boat!), they took unexperienced divers down, we though it was dangerous.
Lovely people too, we extended our stay instead of going somewhere else !

Room Tip: pay a little more to get a nicer bungalow with your own bathroom instead of the basic one.

After staying in Black Marlin (which I didn't like that much), I toke a chance and moved to this place. It was a very good decision!

1) great cottages.

2) great beach. You can lay in the sun, or in the shade of the lovely palm trees that also just look great. The resort is also on a corner, so you can basically choose from two small beachstrips

3) swimming. You can easily enter the water (sandy, not dead coral that you can cut your feet on). Once you start swimming / snorkeling, there is an area with great coral and fish!

4) friendly staff. they will climb in the palm trees for you and get you (for free of charge) a coconut to sip on and watch the sunset!

5) the food is ample and is served at your table (not a buffet that runs out like Black Marlin)

After staying at Kadidiri Paradires resort for a couple of days which wasnt a pleasent experience at all, we went to Fadilah.

Pro:
- some new bungalows (hightly recommended, not moldy yet, new moskitonets)
- extremely friendly staff
- excellent vibes; this place just feels wonderful

con:
- unfortunaly there is a swamp on this island, which means: loads of mosquitoes at night. You can escape them by sitting on the yetty in the evening with the wind blowing around you, but getting back to the bungalow is hard.

We therefore left after a few very nice days cause we couldnt stand the mosquitos any more.

Room Tip: get one of the new bungalows
