It was one thing very sad in my staying in Villa Ma' Rasai : it was the last day, the day of leaving. Definitely it is the best option to stay in Ternate Island. All future guests should remember : this is not a hotel. This is your home abroad! The staff is your family and Harsrun Rasai is your... More

During my business trip back in January, I was not happy to start with till I decided to search for more options as to places to stay in Ternate. I found this place and spoke to Hasrun. I stayed here just for an overnight stay before catching a plane back to Surabaya the next day. And, I promised myself if... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Vila Ma'Rasai in Ternate. I traveled to Ternate for the total solar eclipse in March 2016. Mr. Hasrun was our host and was wonderfully helpful and accommodating. He arranged taxis, mopeds, hikes, and other help. The rest of the staff team were all sweethearts! The lounge area was really a pleasant crossroads for other... More

Large comfortable rooms and good food in this home stay villa which makes an excellent base for seeing the small spice island of Ternate. Warm welcome from English speaking manager. Quiet location up a steep hill just beyond the University Campus.

after reading such good reviews i was really looking forward to staying at this place. Well, if you just want to relax for a while in vicinity of Ternate city, just go and enjoy. However, if you plan to do anything and don't want to waste your money, think twice. one thing is indisputable - the villa is really beautifully... More

Beautiful room, with nice balcony. The host was very helpful and friendly, without being intrusive. The ever available complementary fresh fruit juices, more than compensated for the lack of warm water in the shower. The villa is quite far from the city centre, but transport is easily arranged.

Those that have reviewed this hotel have often mentioned the owner as particularly helpful. Often I have found that such good reviews have been pushed by the owner, but in this case, we felt that he was sincerely interested and extremely helpful in a low-key way, always present and ready to help. The location away from the busy town is... More

our stay at Villa Ma'Rasai was one of our best on the whole trip we made through northern Molukku and northern Sulawesi.

When in Ternate - and the island itself is definitely worth a visit - treat yourself to some affordable luxury. It's really the one place you do not want to miss. This lovely guesthouse is set high up the slopes of Gamalama volcano - which you can climb if you must - and well away from the hustle and bustle... More

Pak Hasnan is the perfect host - helpful, charming and informative. Creating this Villa in his home province of North Maluku was his dream through many years of working and living in Yogyakarta. And it is lovely. The garden is well cared for, the internal layout is comfortable with the common areas decorated with ikats and carvings from Eastern Indonesia.... More
