Samsosir is een prachtig schiereiland voor de kust van Sumatra. De landtong ligt in het grootste meer van Zuidoost-Azië: het Toba-meer. In deze omgeving wonen de Bataks, met hun traditionele huizen in typische stijl. Hoe de Bataks écht leven ziet u op één van de lokale markten, die verscholen liggen in de dorpen in het Bukit Barisan-gebergte. In deze dorpen kunt u ook verschillende dansuitvoeringen bijwonen. Verder ziet u hier de overblijfselen van de oude Batak-beschaving, zoals de tombes van de koningen in Tomok en de typische stenen stoelen in Ambarita. Er is van alles te zien, dus bezoek Samosir zeker tijdens uw rondreis Indonesië.
"My 1st holiday in 2018 and it was Samosir"
This cottage really offer you real Batakness on long time ago, no telephone, no ac. The architecture of batak villa was amazed, originally that type of room is for 4 pax however we are asking to get extra bed for 2 more persons and they fulfill it. This Tabo cottage quite popular, therefore you should book the villa or room in advance to ensure you not missed it. They have life music every Saturday and they also provide private package tours. Easy access, wonderful service and great atmosphere. I thinking to have one more trip to Samosir and wish to stay in Tabo Cottage again. Mauliate
"Great location. Some disappointments, dealt with well"
Upon arrival from Bukit Lawang, after recommendation by On The Rocks, we were greeted by the manager (I think his name was Alfonso, but apologies if this is wrong), who was very helpful. After being showed to our standard room, I instantly got bitten by mosquitoes and realised this was because the window was broken and could not be closed. Whilst waiting for someone to fix this, we noticed a stain on the blanket, so also asked for a new one. The manager came to the room and instead of fixing the problems, offered for us to stay in a deluxe room free of charge. This free upgrade was unexpected, but most welcome considering our initial disappointment. The breakfast was fantastic, although busy at the weekend! Coffee was delicious, we did not sample any cakes. The food in the restaurant was reasonable, but slightly more expensive than similar and equally nice dishes in the town (though you pay that bit extra for the location at Tabo). The pool area was sublime, as was the cute 'treehouse' over looking the lake, which was great when it was raining. We introduced ourselves to Annette, the owner, and told her that Wawan and Corinna said hello etc (as they had asked us to). Annette didn't seem too interested, but was polite and made a short conversation back to us about how On The rocks is lovely. After that we noticed Annette talking to other guests and moving around the breakfast hall engaging with guests and ensuring people were aware of the Saturday evening buffet and music. We did not get an invite, and when we came down for dinner the buffet was in full swing and very busy, so we went elsewhere in town that night for dinner, feeling a bit left out! Maybe the hotel was busy and we were overlooked. In conclusion, a beautiful location, lovely food and coffee, attentive restaurant and reception staff, well maintained gardens and a relaxed atmosphere. Issues were dealt with professionally and we had a very relaxing stay, which is all we desired. We would probably not recommend the standard room - it is basically at the back of the hotel in the parking lot and looks pretty shabby (and clearly based on our experience some rooms are in need of a little TLC). The deluxe room was very nice. Many thanks!
"A Wonderful Visit"
We really enjoyed our visit to this pretty hotel with wonderful lake views. The staff are extremely nice and friendly and the rooms are furnished to a good standard. We had a junior suite and we would have enjoyed staying longer than our 2 nights. Only thing that let it down a little...they were out of some of the vegan offerings on the menu (we came during low season) and breakfast had little to offer. However, once the staff knew I was vegan they were happy to prepare rice for me without egg for breakfast and they even went out and got soy milk for our coffee. We would definitely stay here again; the hotel is good value for money.
After spending a few days in their partner hotel EcoTravel Cottages in Bukit Lawang (fanstastic!), Tabo Cottages doesnâ€™t quite match the high expectations based on former reviews. + Rooms are spacious and clean, the location by the lakeside offers nice views and is easily reached from Parapat. Reception staff is very friendly. - Unfortunately, the whole place lacks a personal note and nice atmosphere with regard to both design and staff. Staff (except for reception!) is rather distant and not well trained, the breakfast buffet comes along with many insects on fruit plates, and German owner Annette doesnâ€™t put too much effort in making you feel welcome, but rather spends her time attending to seemingly frequent guests without taking notice of other guests. With regard to rooms: Our Batak Villa (second-highest room category with â€˜panoramic viewâ€™) overlooked the parking lot and main building - a no go! What former reviews praise as â€˜great managementâ€™, we would unfortunately call the opposite - this place might have had its good times, but those times are definitely over.
"Beautiful setting, OK room"
Although our first "standard" room was OK (great shower), it was right on the driveway and parking lot--noisy with fumes until 10 and then car alarms going off from 6 am on. We switched rooms, for an $20 extra per night. This "deluxe" room was OK. The bathroom had a huge build out for a shower, but it wasn't installed there. Instead there was a shower hose hanging a few feet up in the open tub, which had to be hand held to avoid getting a flood on the floor. Disappointing. The food was great but service very slow at times. Laundry service was good, a hair dryer available on request, credit cards accepted.
