" Temperature is cooling at night (about 20 deg Celsius) and air is really fresh. Good view of the lake. Conditions of room is generally good.

Quite a few cafe around although not every cafe is open daily.

If you are not with tour group, it would be good to engage a driver to be with you before going to the resort.

Excellent hospitality. "

" We spent two nights in the hotel in this place. The room was good, the kids loved the jacuzi. The view was excellent and the air was fresh. Kids can feed rabbits, ride horse and plant some flowers here.
The staff was kind and helpful, giving the guests many smiles was needed.
Most of them have plain face without bright smiles. "

" Intent to just swing by to see the scenery of lake toba. We have to fork out 400000 Rp for entrance, wonder if we are overcharged for this by our driver. Do not trust your driver and make sure ask the price before you go in. Facilities is bit run down and lack of maintenance.

2 star is given for the scenery there but as for the facilities and activities shall only deserve 1 star only. "

" Guide was great. But you should get your own car as the area is quite huge and hard to get around without your own vehicle. "

" Spectacular point of place to view the Magnificent Lake Toba. Although, for staying overnight the room rates are expensive, you may be able to visit the resort for a day pass. There is also a stand-alone tree on top of the hill. Be sure you have a good car to reach this resort. Overall, nice place for a day trip with family. "

" The close to three-hour winding drive to Taman Simalem Resort was made worthwhile by the great view of Lake Toba and the surrounding mountains. Rooms are spacious and functional, WiFi is free (though spotty), staff are friendly and helpful, and there are organized outdoor activities to keep occupied. Construction is going on now, so expect some disturbance. "

" Nice view outside the room. However, hotel building is partially completed. A bit poor service during peak season such in Eid Fitr holiday. Many of the hotel staffs are "intern" during this holiday season. "

" It was one of the most memorable stays, I was well greeted by Inselson when I checked in to a waterfall villa.
While waiting, Inselson introduced me to all the activities available at Taman Simalem Resort and most activities were included as part of my package.
I stayed at Taxus Villa 1, and all my windows were facing the greens - completely private. My villa was very spacious, and the sound of waterfall was soothing.
Trekking with Kaban was a great way to spend my morning, he's was insightful and the forest was like his second home. Remember to bring along a water bottle, refreshing spring water awaits you at the twin waterfalls...
The staff were friendly and I had an enjoyable stay at Taman Simalem Resort, thank you for the truly wonderful experience.
I bought only a packet of the organic coffee beans, I wished I could grab a few more kgs if I had enough baggage allowance. The coffee beans were handpicked and roasted in-house.
Dinner was like the equivalence of fine-dining, I had table service for both BBQ and Steamboat (the following day). What a great way to end the evening :) "

" Views towards Lake Toba is amazing. The location is very windy. The hotel rooms are quite comfortable. But the dinner and breakfast menu were very disappointing. "
