Hotels in Manado

Olivia Cottage, Manado

Location : Kayuroya Village in the sub-district of East Lembean (or Lembean Timur)
Telephone : +62 813 5652 0022
Nearby facilities : a small kiosk located at the front of the resort, selling beers (Rp.17,500), mineral water (Rp. 3,000), cigarettes (Rp.11,000) and some snacks
How to get there : from Tondano Terminal take a mikrolet that goes in the "Kayuroya" or "Kapataran" direction (fare about Rp. 6,250). It's about 1.5 hours worth-it-drive (or even more due to the road condition) to get to this place. Just tell the driver that you want to get off at "Olivia Resort", which belongs to the family Runtu-Hermanus. This mikrolet may wait until it gets a full load and it may take up to about 1 hour. Own or car rental is highly recommended
Remarks : only has 3 rooms, rates from Rp. 350,000 and early reservation is needed. Half way to this place, the road is not in a good condition and could become dangerous in the wet season (landslide problem in some spots of the road). Need to be extra-patient to wait for the public transportation to Tondano terminal when you check-out from this resort. Good coverage of mobile phone signals.
