Unimaginitive rooms and the staff gave bad info. However, nice family and good beach (just dont go in the sand at sundown, those sand flies will wreak havoc on your skin. The people running it failed to tell us that and just watched us. Spend the money and stay at the other end, not in the middle spot either.

We stayed in April 2014 and absolutely loved it. The accomodation was basic and we paid $5 per person per night so it was super cheap. Mama and Akah were lovely as well. Because I speak Indonesian it was easier for me to converse with them and found them to be very helpful. They even did a bonfire for us...

Pondok Lestari Kadidiri offers cheap accomodation, including 3 meals and free tea/coffee. Great choice for budget travellers. You can go snorkelling just from the beach or choose from some boat trips. The food is really tasty and the staff is very nice. Unfortunately they only have one divemaster so if he's busy you have to search in other two resorts...

1st I would say that I enjoyed the island but was really disappointed with Pondok lestari. The people that owned it where so unfriendly, the only time the old lady smiled was when you gave her money, any other time you asked her something oh I don't speak English. Most of the time it doesn't matter if the people that...

Alright place, but kind of pricey compared to the other options on the Togeans where you get so much more for the same price (e.g. Bolilanga). As the others said, the breakfast is meager and no fruits are served. No meat is served, so you should better like fish if you go there! But the fish is amazing, always freshly...

Cheapest option in kadidiri but perfect place to stay. The family which run the resort is friendly and funny. I stayed there with my girlfriend and we paid a price for person with all 3 meals included (not big portions to eat and fish, fish and fish). If you need relax is perfect, just ask to go with Akah when...

Averrage accomodation on an averrage beach with not so clean shared "Mandi"... don't expect a hidden paradise here, because it shares it's small beach with two other resorts... Don't stay there for to many days - there are many places on the Togians way nicer than Kadidiri!

This place was really good, as described in the other reviews. However there is one huge downside: the long-term occupant/manager Hans the German. I stayed at Lestari about a year ago and recently learned that this guy is still there. Words cannot describe how annoying this guy is. Took somewhat of a manager-role in this (previously) family-run establishment and is...

I stayed at Pondok Lestari for 4 nights. I quite enjoyed a spirit of the place. Chalets are basic but as a backpacker you should expected. Free coffee and tea is a nice refreshment during a hot day. Beach is right front of your accommodation. Only think which I really do not like it was a breakfast. They should have...

Nice place if you looking for low budget accomodation. Nice traditional meals handmade by Mama (the owner). Tea and coffee everytime. Hospitality like a big family. Sitting and singing aroung the fire after dinner. Don't forge to try arak and buy the Pondok Lestari liontin necklace.
