Mixed Feelings... May 20, 2011
Tana Toraja is a remote part of South Sulawesi that is on the intrepid traveller’s map because of its trademark vernacular houses, like thatched boats on stilts, and its bizarre, not to say creepy funerary caves and monuments. It’s definitely National Geographic territory.

Anyway, back to the hotel. We had standard room 416 in the large concrete block reserved for groups like ours. The room was spacious, dark and decrepit. Even so, the beds were comfy, the temperature pleasantly cool, it was quiet and bug-free. There are pricier rooms, designed more in the traditional Toraja style, and these are more expensive and possibly better, though we never inspected one.

There is a pretty heated swimming pool, nice grounds, an attractive bar area and a big restaurant to feed the tour groups, though I don’t think they have many groups these days. I can’t judge the hotel’s regular food, or the a la carte menu, but our buffet was beyond awful, a spread of ‘local’ dishes that were overcooked hours before and kept steaming in warmers. I found some fresh, crispy spring rolls and confined myself to those. Breakfast was principally an Indonesian buffet of ricey/noodley things, though there were also some surprisingly good croissants.

To summarise then: an atmospheric hotel, attuned to the local cultural attractions, with friendly staff, awful food and poorly maintained rooms.

Toraja Heritage Hotel Overview

This resort property follows the architectural style of traditional Torajan clan houses with a massive roof shaped like a ship's prow. Inside, however, the resort has been furnished to the highest standards to provide the perfect blend of tradition and comfort. Comprising a total of 160 guest rooms, the family-friendly establishment welcomes its guests into a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out service, a hotel safe and currency exchange facilities. On-site facilities include a cafe, bar and restaurant, as well as Internet access and room and laundry services (the latter incurs an additional fee). Guests arriving by car can leave their vehicles in the nearby car park, whilst those wishing to explore the local surroundings can hire bikes from reception for a fee.
