“Best place in Tana Toraja”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Located a bit on the hills, the hotel has an incredible view and it´s completely surrounded by nature and, with the accommodations which reproduce the traditional Toraja houses, there´s a really particular atmosphere.
Spaces are huge, the hall, the restaurant and the pool.
The rooms are nice, fresh at anytime of the day and night,(there´s no need of ac),
bigger the standards then the superior, fantastic the deluxe, that´s more a villa then just a room and all of them surprisingly clean ( to be in Indonesia..)
The food is wonderful. Always fresh and tasty.
The breakfast with buffet offers a wide choise of food, both indonesian, continental and european. Homemade yogurt, jam, croissant, danish, bread and fruit juices.
We asked room service at midnight and in half an hour they came with the best pizza we have eaten out of italy. Compliments to the chef!
The staff is nice and friendly, available 24 hours and really helpful.
Sport facilities need definitely to be renewed, but all the rest is absolutely well maintained, nice and clean.
Best place in Rantepao if you are looking for cleaning and relax.

This hotel by the way the best in Toraja, used to be a very good hotel, but is a bit rundown.

The room is reasonable, as long as you are in the big building and not in the rooms of the Toraja houses.

The rooms are clean and quite good, old but everything worked.
By the way there is no air conditioning, but the hotel is rather hight situated, so at night it was ok, by opening the door to the balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for the room in the big building numbers 500 etc and 600 etc

The hotel looks very nice but when you look a little bit closer, maintenance was done last time in the passed century. Gekkos in the room are part of the scenery. Food at the hotel restaurant is plainly bad. Very bad! At breakfast the cook dropped a fork and happily picked it up and stirred the eggs again with the same fork.... There is nothing better so if you go there, that's what you get!

Located a bit outside the centre of Rantepao (you can walk to the centre in half an hour), with a view over some rice fields. Nice pool (beware of very slippery tiles around the pool). We got a large room. Bathroom with a bath.
Everything is a bit worn and outdated.
We arrived very early in the morning after a long busride from Tentena, but we didn't have to pay extra, which was a friendly gesture.
Breakfast was good and varied.

Oke, several things (like the fitness, oh is this also called a fitness...;-)in the Toraja Heritage were outdated, oldfashioned of out of order. But look at the nice atmosphere thanks to the Toraja houses. Look at the nice parc and view. And most of all: look (and eat) the really excellent food at the buffet (change every day). Next to this: Toraja land has a very special mix of authentic, traditional and modern life. Really worth to visit!

Room Tip: When you want something special and you're willing to pay for it: spend your nights in the Toraj...

Just stayed 3 nights at the hotel. As a first impression is a nice hotel quite and relaxing, but as you get closer, you can see many details. It is a bit old, needs some repairs, food is pretty weak, tennis court is completely destroyed, etc... Nice and gentle workers, and reasonable pool, however.
