South Sulawesi Toraja Hertage Hotel Rantepao


At an altitude of 700 meters (2,300 feet) with views across to a huge mountain range, the TORAJA HERITAGE HOTEL follows the architectural style of traditional Torajan clan houses with a massive roof shaped like a ship’s prow. Inside however, the resort has been furnished to the highest standards to provide the perfect blend of tradition and comfort. The orchid-shaped island of SULAWESI has a dramatic and rugged landscape with shimmering blue mountains, limestone hills and deep blue bays. At the crossroads of several historical sea lanes, the island was formerly a strategic trading port with the seafaring Bugies dominating the southern tip and the Toraja – with a culture based on animism – guarding the mountains to the north. This ancient culture has been little affected by modern tourism and today Tana Toraja offers the visitor fascinating glimpses of a people whose unique customs and rituals have survived for centuries, and who, according to their mythology, are descendants of celestial beings from heaven. The TORAJA HERITAGE HOTEL is the first four star International hotel in Toraja. The 160 rooms and suites have marble bathrooms and balconies facing the rice fields. Toraja handicrafts have been used to great effect in all the guest rooms, and all have international standard amenities. An outdoor swimming pool overlooks the mountains. Mountain bikes are available for sightseeing, there is trekking in the surrounding hills and wild-water rafting on the nearby Sa’dan river. After a day of touring, try a massage at our Marampa’ Spa and discovering our Aromatherapy scented sauna or sit in the oversized Jacuzzi and imagine yourself soaking in a pool in a bamboo forest. Two restaurants – the Marura, by the poolside, and the Sarira – provide excellent dining. Set high in the mountains amid rice fields and rolling hills, TORAJA HERITAGE HOTEL offers a heaven of retreat from city life – a perfect blend of tradition and comfort.
