Certificate of Excellence
Tabo Cottages is a natural hotel with focus on space, green lawns and the ethnic style of the area. In our spacious garden pavilions you will always find a quiet corner to relax and enjoy the terrific views over the lake and mountains. Our Restaurant and German Bakery is well known for local as well as western favorites and our buffets are always a wild mixture of different tastes. Since we roast our own coffee beans we are very proud of the freshness of our brewed coffee, another specialty of Tabo. We are focusing on sustainability and we are educating village people to work with us and learn to take care of natural resources and be environmentally aware. We are also working in environment and ecotourism development and once in a while do volunteer actions like clean ups or hiking trail maintenance.

The resort is nice and clean and it is operated very Western, so you do not really get a feeling like staying in Sumatra. You are kind of isolated. Friendly staff and they also offer many extra services.More
