We lodged in Luta Toraja last September 2012 for 3 nights in a Deluxe room and we were really pleased to stay there. Our room was very nice, clean, well decorated and spacious, with nice views over the river. The reception staff is really polite, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is an small buffet with a good choice of Indonesian food and continental breakfast. They have a nice swimming pool facing the river where you can watch the sunset with the river running below you. You have 2 hours of free wifi everyday that works well near the reception or the bar lounge, not in the rooms far from the reception. The have life music everyday in the bar until 9.00pm, and in spite of it could be a little bit loud, it finishes not too late. The hotel is located 5 min by foot from the center in a quite location in front of the Catholic chuch and with many shops around.The staff in the reception can help you to find a guide for Toraja, they work with a guide called Astro who was our guide during our 3 days there. He is the perfect guide for Toraja, extremely polite, good English, all the time attending your needs, giving you space and making you feel relaxed, giving you very good explanations about Toraja with very good knowledge of his land. He made us enjoy Toraja very much. About the restaurant in Toraja, we went to Rimiko restaurant the first night followiing the lonelyplanet recommendations but we did not like this place at all, the owner of this place was an unpolite man trying to be our guide and made us feel very unconfortable there. After that, we went everynight to "Cafe Aras" which is in the main street of Rantepao, a little bit more expensive than Rimiko (just a little) but very quiet, clean and nice place with delicious food.
