“good place for peace and quiet, but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2011

An average hotel, nicely located in the middle of the rice field.

Major selling point is the outdoors: spacieous, beautiful garden, great pool (with al lot indonesian kids hanging there however), al in a fake, but nice Torajan style. Nice views of the countryside.Sadly the main road is about 50m nearby, so now and then a horn distrubes the peace and quite.

The standard rooms are clean en spacious but basic, some stuff not working/falling apart. Deluxe rooms only slightly better. Staff is not bad, not great either. During high season, it was overpriced imho.

The resort is too far to walk to centre of Rantepoa. 5 min moped ride is neccesary. I can not reccommend the resort restaurant. Go to Rantepoa of the restaurant at the main road.

stayed here 4 nights, it's a good friendly place, with nice clean rooms and nice views over rice fields.The owner is realy friendly and will help you with anything.
The hotel is just outside town, but with cheap transport you will be in the centre in 5 minutes.

The Lodge is seemingly perched in the middle of a rice field with the only access down a narrow lane. The room was large and clean with hot water (shared with the next room) and a TV.

The bathroom was a bit hit and miss. Wobbly taps and extremely dodgy wiring! In fact the sockets in the room were pretty dodgy too, prone to hanging half out of the wall rather than being fitted in ...

The Lodge is 3 kms from Rantepao. There is a restaurant 1 km away. Breakfast was toast and panckes or fried banana depending on the day.

There was a beautiful swimming pool but it obviously hadn't been used for a long time, the whole garden area could be rather attractive with a big dose of TLC. Suitable for short stays but no longer.
