Splendid Taman Simalem Resort
A very relaxing stay in Taman Simalem Resort. The staff were all so friendly, lead by their capable GM Benard. Special thanks to Kaban, Citra and Jessica for their exceptional services, as well as the restaurant staff at Tongqing and Waterfall venues. The resort has nice rooms overseeing the Lake Toba.

Great escapade and affordable
the scenery is jaw dropping. The estate is big covering 1 hill i guess. But the drawback is you need car to travel from one end to another. Amenities are plenty to choose and keep you busy for few days stay.

An unassuming experience
We wanted to visit Lake Toba and decided to Taman Simalem Resort (TSR) after reading much about the activities catered by the Resort. Was impressed with the homely service provided by the staff in TSR, it feels like another trip to Club Med. We decided to stay at Tongging Point Lodge as they have room for 4 twins which is convenient for me to gather my 2 teens to get moving for activities. We have great experience with the lady (forgot her name) who brought us through the coffee processing and roasting process. Definitely very enriching for city dwellers like us. The jungle treking was absolute a good workout and a refreshing one at the Twins waterfalls. We were highly encouraged those who visits TSR to go One Tree Hill for the breathtaking view though Tongging Point does have great view as well. The key highlight is the foods served in TSR, they were mainly organic vegetables and fruits. Last but least, we sincerely wanted to say a great thank you to all the staff in TSR despite there is imperfection.
