I always have a look at the reviews before going somewhere, even when going back, and I was skeptic about the grumpy reviews recently on Gardenia. Our bungalow was spotless, the food was excellent, the restaurant well organised. And because we were the only guest in the evening, we were offered to see the menu before. The garden is lovely,...

I've been taking friends and family to the restaurant which is open for public.The service is slow so better to order in advance, but the quality and taste of the food is amazing!

Incredible garden of 5h, a various birds and butterflies. Delicious food, great sevice. Nice view to Soputan volcanos. The facilities of the rooms must be improved, there are a bit old, very tiny bathroom, narrow beds, the sink and water tap was very smal and water faucet was old and bad quality. The price of 2.5* hotel is too high.

I have been to Gardenia several times already and always enjoyed it. I come here for the beautiful garden landscape. It is more having villas in a botanical garden than actually a resort. I love plants and gardening and the garden of this resort is just a dream. The Bungalows and rooms are spread out over a huge park like... More

Before going to Bunaken we wanted to explore the Manado/Tomohok region because it is beautiful. After a recommendation we ended up at Gardenia. The location and gardens are amazing but that is about it. I am ok with basic but the rooms are very basic and smell very humid. Bathrooms need an upgrade. Breakfast is nothing special and we opted... More

We stayed at Gardenia over the weekend. It is a rustic yet well appointed country property. Beautiful gardens, attentive staff and the owner is a great source of information of the area. Tomohon makes a great escape from the hot-lowlands. If you going all the way to Manado is worth it to make a detour here.

The bathroom of our bungalow [ we got a free upgrade from chalet to bungalow] definitely needs to be renovated: sink, bathtub/shower is really worn; water often has no/low power/pressure and the water tastes rusty so brushing one's teeth using tapwater is not a good idea.

This is one of the best country inn I went in Indonesia. Located in Tomohon, overlooking the mountain, you'll be greeted with fresh mountainous air in the morning. In the night, you can clearly see the sparkling stars in the sky. Stayed in the family bungalow in March 2015 and recently in September 2015. Not much to do, except enjoying... More

“We've stayed in Sakura, the last big en most expensive room. But it's European wise very cheap and worthwhile. It's the last room in the garden but you have a great view in the morning on the veranda seeing the Lokon wakeup. It's worthwhile to have a early wake and sit on the veranda starting in the dark.”
