We booked at Bahowo Lodge because of the good ratings here, but we did not like the place at all. The hotel is not well maintained and dirty. But the worst thing is probably that you have to pay a high price for it. They charge 4 times the price a taxi would cost for the airport shuttle and after...

Bahowo, Owner at Bahowo Lodge, responded to this review

We are sorry that this guest did not enjoy their one - night stay at Bahowo Lodge. Clearly there was on this occasion a mis - match between the Lodge and the type of accomodation that the guest was seeking. We are not a back - packers lodge and our rates are clearly advertised. Our airport transfers are comparable to...

Bahowo Lodge is great! You know you're going to have a wonderful stay when you arrive at midnight from the airport and the owners offer you beer upon taking your luggage! Phil and Paula are incredible hosts. They provide culturally relevant experiences, but with western amenities and service. They organized tours for us (cheaper than the tour groups in town)...

My wife and I recently spent a week in Manado diving at the world-renowned Bunaken Marine Park. We had booked a dive package with Thalassa Dive Centre (a PADI 5* dive centre and possibly one of the best-run outfits in Asia) and we were given a choice of three different accommodations. We could either stay on-site at Hotel Santika, or...

Situated on the mainland of north Sulawesi 15 km away from the capital Manado (because of the partly narrow roads and the traffic in the city a car needs around 30-45 min. to the town center) facing the islands of the Bunaken National Park the Bahowo Lodge is located directly in the small village Bahowo. The lodge is a two...

I stayed here on my own for good on two weeks in September of 2011. I would recommend this place to any type of traveler; be it someone traveling alone, a honeymoon couple and or anyone in-between.

We spend more than 10 nights at the lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. Phil and Paula are perfect hosts to make you feel comfortable and so nice to chat with. Good spacious rooms and so much other places for the guests to sit or rest. Dinner at various places near the house or the garden. And the swimming...

My wife and I are regular visitors to Bahowo Lodge and think of it more as visiting friends rather than booking in to a hotel. With staff who know your name and the integration you experience with the local village it really is a unique experience to stay here. Throw in the two most laid back and flexible hosts you...

We stayed at Bahowo Lodge for three nights, and loved it!

Stayed at Bahowo Lodge for three nights and loved it! The food is delicious and plentiful, the a/c works great, and the village is just fantastic. I also really enjoyed spending time chatting with Phil and Paula (the fabulous owners). They will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to make your stay comfortable and fun. Nothing but great memories from this place!
