We had a very comfortable coach for our group of 15 and Mario, our guide, was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We managed to fit in a quick visit to Lake Linau and also a short trip to Mount Mahawu accompanied by Mario. Both places were well worth a visit. Our room was large and detached. There was no...

This hotel was simply great. It's a bit out of Tomohon city but with a short walk of 15 minutes or a ride you can reach it easily. Surrounded by mountain and jungle is a haven in the nature. At the arrival I got upgraded for free to a suite, it was perfect and stilysh. Breakfast is also extremely good... More

We stayed at highland resort for two nights after diving in bunaken and had a great time! The staff and accommodation was amazing, affordable and there were not many tourists around at all. Note there's not much around at all so we had to have most of our meals at the resort but the food was quite good. Also the... More

We stayed four nights to take advantage of a free night offer, and had a comfortable and relaxing stay. They upgraded us parents to a larger bungalow with an enormous bathroom, but all the bungalows looked good. We climbed Lokon one day, took a tour around Minahasa on another, and spent the third day relaxing and walking around town. The... More

Mody the manager, Marcel the man for everything and all the stuff are incredibly friendly, helpful and well organized. A lovely place to stay and do tours from. They made every wish possible and gave us a even better room for the same price, just because it was free. When my girlfriend was sick they helped with everything they could.... More

Quite place to stay. Rooms clean and equipped with all you need. Tomohon is a bit far away, but in just a 5 min walk you can get to minibus service. Highland staff is very helpful. It was interesting to chat with the owner. He helped to obtain cash as credit card didn't work with ATM

The resort is handy as its near the main road into Tomoho, it looks into the next valley and the village of Kinilow is worth exploring on foot. The down side is that there is a bit of traffic noise during the day and the main road is busy to walk along, actually its best to take the microlets into... More

Our unique resort offers a cool respite from the tropical heat of the city, and a quiet venue to relax and enjoy the lush vegetation and birdlife found here. ... more   less
