Rumah Tengah Sawah

Malino | Standard

Nestled on a Sulawesi mountainside, overlooking rice terraces and enigmatic tropical forest, this exclusive little hotel started life as a holiday home, and still offers the warm welcome of a domestic setting.

Accommodation comprises just four lovely bungalows, and the big original house which has three rooms. Interiors are decorated in a cheery local style, with colourful textiles and natural materials. Bathrooms are homely rather than glamorous, but comfortable and well equipped. Apart from the two bungalows that sit next door to each other, each building is very secluded, and overall the place feels more like a private home-from-home than a hotel.

Enjoy beautiful views from the terrace, where breakfast is served, along with the occasional evening meal. For the most part, however, you’ll be popping into the nearby town for dinner, just ten minutes away through the countryside.

The swimming pool is superb — modelled after the rice terraces, its two tiers flanked by a multi-levelled sun terrace with loungers and swing chairs. The surrounding countryside is ideal for trekking and mountain-biking, and cookery classes can be arranged in a nearby village.
