“5 Star Stay”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

If you find yourself in Makassar, be sure and stay at the Arya Duta Hotel. This is a place filled with royal treatment and conditions. The staff is heloful and accomadating, the rooms are luxurious, and the food was outstanding. This hotel is right across the street from the beach. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby as well. However, the hotel offers great choices for dining.

Room Tip: Great views from an upper floor.

Dear head2hawaii,

Thank you very much for your kind review on Tripadvisor! It gives me great pleasure to read about the positive comments from you regarding the hotel. We at the hotel take pride in going the extra step and thereby creating an unforgettable experience.

As you mention as well as a room tip, an upper floor means you can enjoy the great views of either the sea or the city. If you stay in the Club rooms, you can even enjoy the daily complementary cocktail hours, and many other benefits!

We look forward to welcoming you at the Hotel Aryaduta Makassar for your next visit to Makassar!

Best regards,

Jerome van Helden

We spend two nights there with our two kids..
We booked online, and surprise, there was only smoking room left, anyway it wasnt smell that strong..
The room was comfortable even the furniture are old, they might think to upgrade to more modern..
But overall the room was fine..
The breakfast... We stayed there for 3 different years... And this year, we found the breakfast was OK, wasnt as good as before, the choice of food were plenty but just the quality seem descending a little bit..
The pool was fine..
And the diinner buffet by the pool was soo good, the bbq was good, choice of beef,chicken and fish, freshly grilled in front of you, and the traditional makassar dessert freshly also made in place.. There was some choices of western food and desserts as well.. And the price was very reasonable..it was great nice evening dinner with our family..

For a good price (one third of a similar hotel in Germany) we enjoy the best breakfast-buffet of all our trips, including cheese (which seems to be uncommon in Indonesia), yoghurt, brown bread, porridge, simply all you can imagine plus omelette and the usual indonesian food. For dinner Pizza in an wood-oven, and Saturday a great barbecue-buffet to refill the Papua-empty protein-storage plus Sushi!
Internet is free and o.k., rooms and swimming-pool good sized, staff extremely friendly, location nice. That's all.

The hotel is nice but it has 2 major problems: 1) it is near Makassar sea side so it is incredibly noisy, if you want to enjoy a relaxing day near the pool, forget it. 2) rooms are really old, old forniture, old carpets. They really need to be updated also because they are completly different from the lobby that looks a bit more modern. Restaurant is ok, nothing exceptional but ok.

Located right at the sea side. So, it has nice sea view. I think it is the only hotel with nice sea view.

Restaurant is rather mediocre. Same goes for their breakfast.

Room is big with ample space.

Though they have spa service, it is only just 1 small room, sharing with the hotel's so called gym.

Friendly staff. A quiet lobby and at times there is a duo to play classic Indonesian tunes with traditional musical instruments

And I was back there, for the several times. It's not because I really like the hotel, just 'cause I got a very good deal from my regular travel agent. Nothing really change since last year (or for the last 6 or 7 years to be more precise). The lobby, room, restaurant are exactly the same, along with the attentiveness and swiftness of the front table and concierge . It took me less than 5 minutes to check in, went straight to my room and the luggage came a very short after; excellent as usual.
Nothing change in the room; same old furniture, rug, bed and bathroom. They really strive to keep them good and clean, but you can't cheat time. They are tired and in desperate need of refurbishment.
The next morning breakfast surprised me and my wife, since it's probably the same menu we had last year without any significant change. In my last review, I complained about the lack of variety of breakfast menu during our 3 night stay. It seems (hopefully I was wrong) that not only they didn't change the menu during that 3 nights, but for the following year! Incredible. I cannot help but compliment the chef for the "consistency".
Overall, sadly I have to downgrade my rating from 4 to 3 points now. Probably I won't go back to the hotel unless I get a very appealing offer.

Room Tip: For a first timer: try to get room face the beach. The sunset view is breathtaking
