Welcome to the Highland Resort Tomohon in North Sulawesi!
Many people think of North Sulawesi as mainly being a place for diving and snorkeling. There is a lot more though! Visiting Manado and not spending some time exploring the beautiful Minahasa Highlands means that you miss a good part of this area's wonderful attractions.
The Highland Resort and Spa is the ideal place to base yourself, whether it might be just for several days or for several weeks. Our unique resort offers a cool respite from the tropical heat of the town, and a quiet venue to relax and enjoy the lush vegetation and birdlife found in the Highlands.
Located in Kinilow, a small village situated between Manado and Tomohon, the resort itself is set 300 metres away from the main road and the bustle of the traffic. The cottages face the hills and down a ravine. However, it is only 20 kms to Manado and 5 kms to Tomohon.
At an altitude of 650 metres above sea level, The Highland Resort's cooling mountain climate will suit those still aclimatising to the tropical heat of Indonesia. Tomohon is the nearest town with small local shops and an interesting traditional market which is well worth a visit early in the morning. All manner of fruit, vegetables, spices and household items are on sale. Keep an eye out for the skinned bats or rats, a local delicacy.
A dramatic feature of the Resort's location is the towering volcanoes of Lokon and Mahawu. The volcanic soil of the area provides the lush vegetation surrounding the resort and the region produces most of the vegetables and flowers supplied to Manado.
