    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.

    I like how this place is so in tuned with nature. Staff were so polite and everything seems perfect. Tree planting shows how this place respect nature so much. Would be good if they have a butteefly garden to complete the feeling of the place

    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.
