|Luxurious Relaxation in Manado
Comfortable Lodging, Fine Dining, the Ultimate in Relaxation
Gardenia Country Inn -- Located in the small village of Tomohon, called the City of Flowers, the 45-minute drive from Manado to the Gardenia Inn takes you from the heat and humidity of sea level to an altitude of 900 meters (2950 feet), and a completely different environment. The air is pleasantly cooler and drier in the highlands, and a different set of flora and fauna become evident.
Lush Gardens beside a Buddhist Temple -- Set well back from the road beside an intriguing multi-tiered Buddhist temple, Gardenia Country Inn is artfully sited amidst manicured gardens, a rushing mountain stream and lively koi ponds. There are multiple dining areas, each with its own unique charm. A selection of outdoor and semi-open nooks, platforms and small grottos are perfect for serious relaxing, reading, walking, bird and butterfly watching, and private meditation.
Services Offered -- Available services include massage, day tours, and an excellent restaurant that specializes in a remarkable BBQ dinner that one cooks to taste on a gas burner built into your table. Breakfasts are served from a beautiful open air dining room surrounded by fish ponds and flowering plants, and overlooking a majestic volcano. If all the natural beauty and contemplation is too much for you, the bungalow rooms also include a TV set, VCR, and a selection of contemporary movies are available. Complimentary Wi-Fi connection to the Internet is also available.
A Romantic and Relaxing Getaway -- Gardenia Country Inn is a perfect spot for a romantic get away, a place to banish the symptoms of jetlag after the long international flights, or better yet both at once. It can be combined with any visit to Manado, including Kungkungan Bay Resort, Lembeh Resort, Gangga Island Resort & Spa, and/or Siladen Resort & Spa. We recommend it highly to anyone with a taste for massage, meditation, or just in need of a rejuvenating respite from the "real world."
