Selayar Island Resort
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is pretty much the only decent resort to stay on Selayar Island. There is another one on the East coast but it was closed for the season when we visited. I believe one or two more properties are being built at the moment. This property is quite nice with a zen japanese garden throughout. It was built by a Japanese businessman over 10 years ago and has since been in the hands of Indonesians. We stayed at the deluxe suite for over a week and it's spacious and also basic. If the room and property are better maintained, it would be a very nice place. A nice, quiet retreat. I regret to say the bed sheets were slightly stained and roof had a plank missing. It rains quite often there and again maintenance is an issue. The room rate was on the high side - 90 euros a night as this is really the only decent resort there. The rate includes breakfast and dinner. Food was great - congee or rice or noodles for breakfast and seafood feast at night. Seafood was very fresh. But certain parts of the resort are just falling apart and rusting. We met a local who has now become our friend. Eka is Balinese and arranged activities for us and made us feel at home. Without him, our stay would not have been as nice. Overall, place is average. It's slightly difficult to get to - you either take a bus from Makassar which takes 8 hours or a 1 hour flight. Our flight got canceled due to weather even though it was simply drizzling so I would say bus is far more reliable. Staff were friendly and as helpful as can be given the language barrier. Overall average stay. Please maintain as this property has so much potential.
