“Do not stay. Going out of business. No swimming pool or rooms.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had reserved 2 nights and when we landed they apparently had no rooms. We had come all the way via 4 flights and landed late at night so were quite bumped at that.

First of all, the place is going out of business and is being converted to a tourism school as the someone is taking over. This place no longer has any swimming pool and only has a few rooms at the back.

The staff insisted they had no rooms and this is middle of nowhere so we persisted. When we looked around rooms were lying vacant but they just wouldn't let us stay.

The surprising thing was that when we looked for places to stay, the hotel still showed empty rooms for the night. After much persisting, we were given a room for the night on condition that we leave the next day.

Really shady the way the place is being operated. Still has the view but book elsewhere as there is nothing nearby and Tomohon is not an easy place to arrange alternate bookings or transportation.

Beautiful view from the rooms, spacious rooms however they are old. When we went, pool was being rebuilt, which was a big reason for us to book it so very disappointing. No air con or fan, but was cool enough. Not much English was spoken by staff !!!

First, i was glad that we just stayed here for 1 night and bought the voucher hotel through travel for 3 bedroom cottage ; otherwise, it was considered over priced for the cottage you paid. When we arrived, the cottage wasn't ready so we have to wait for a while. Meanwhile, I required to present the voucher upon check in and they took it. Otherwise, the receptionist can be clueless, The cottage was shabby with ants marching on 2 ceiling bedrooms plus the spider and its web on the bedroom and bathroom. Not to mention mold and mildew in the bathroom. The bed sheet was filthy, I needed to use the cotton blanket that I brought on the top of the sheet to sleep in. We ordered cakalang fired rice and fried bananas for dinner and we liked it. Nevertheless, the breakfast was pretty tastefully challenged with fried rice, egg, cakalang noodle, bread, coffee, tea, water and orange cool aid.
Overall, their service is good but not the cleanliness, and the view of Mt.Lokon was absolutely breathtaking plus the swimming pool was international lap standard with the beautiful view surrounding.

If you are looking only for the view and a place that serene with moderate price, this is the one .

We planned to stay here for 2 nights. But after find the condition of our room and smelly bathroom, we cancelled the next night. in short, the villas need a big renovation. We only ordered once from the restaurant for afternoon tea break, and then chose to have dinner in the nearest fast food we could find rather then in the restaurant.

Bu no argue with the scenery. It is soooo beautiful. I didn't mind with the taste of my tea. Just sitting in the garden facing Lokon mountain with a cup of hot tea, banana fried and fill breez of mountain wind ... it's heaven !

Need a serious investor to renovate this resort.

The Lokon resort is situated in a beautiful garden. Our room was clean and quiet. There was very little staff. There were only very few guests and in the evening we were the only two having diner. The quality was average. Breakfast is sufficient. The view from the well maintained garden is very special.

The view when you entered the resort is breathtaking, Mt. Lokon is there right before your eyes, as if you could reach and touch it... We arrived around 1pm at the resort and the check-in process was smooth. We booked the Deluxe type room and was assigned Soputan. Unfortunately, the room was not cleaned when we arrived and we have to wait for around 20 minutes while the room was cleaned. The room was basic and not air-conditioned, which should be okay given the cool climate. However, the room feels quite stuffy since air circulation is provided through a small mesh-covered ventilation above the window. Opening the window was not an option since it is not covered by insect-screen. The bed was set with clean linens although the pillowcase / pillow has a smell like it is not well-dried. Probably the pillow itself needs to be aired under the sun. The breakfast is also basic with tinutuan (local porridge with vegetables and condiments), bread with spreads, juice (concentrate), coffee and tea. Overall, a nice place to stay with beautiful scenery that needs more effort from the management to maintain and improve the staying experience.
Restaurant Tip: Ragey VonVon is just around the corner after you exit from the resort backgate and turn right towards Tomohon city. Ragey is barbecued pork belly spiced with rocksalt and lime, skewered and barbecued over coconut shell charcoal. Yummy!

Room Tip: If you are travelling in a big group, ask for a bungalow facing Mt. Lokon (forgot the name)

When we booked this resort in the highland, we expected the indonesien standard of course, so they were not high, but the rooms was quite nice and the staff was really nice. But we also expected it to peacefull og calm, so we could relax, but this place was soo noisy. People screeming and praying all night, big partys right out side our window and machines starting 5 or 6 in the morning.. So no sleeping.. The food was also really terrible, western breakfast, I dont think so.. But the staff was really sweet and help us, so we would'nt starve to dead. The dinner was cold and to be sick of, and you pay more than the food on the mainroad.

For the price and the room, its okay, but go to Gardinia resort and eat, and dont expect peace, then you will be happy.
