Value
Long isolated from the rest of Sulawesi, the remote but charming town of Luwuk is now an up-and-coming tourist destination, thanks to improved air links. Set around a beautiful natural harbour, Luwuk is the biggest town on Sulawesi’s remote central peninsula, and the best jumping-off point for the fascinating Banggai islands, home to the descendants of ancient seafarers whose ties to the ocean are still very much in evidence today. As an important regional business and trading centre, Luwuk is set to gain new impetus with the opening of the country’s second largest fertilizer complex by the end of 2017. Further afield, the forest-draped golden beaches of the Togean Islands beckon, with their rich diversity of marine life and astonishing coral formations. For truly spectacular diving and jungle trekking, the volcanic island of Una-Una fits the bill perfectly.

Nice room with a view of pool, city and sea. Room is of good size. Cleanliness needs to be improved, the sheet somewhat smell musty (apek). Bathroom rain shower needs to be cleaned regularly, we could not use it when we were there as the water did not come out evenly (some are clogged). Also water always flood the bathroom floor after shower, make it very slippery.

We stayed in Santika Hotel, Luwuk one night while waiting for a flight to Manado. This hotel turned out, a little unexpectedly, to be great in almost every respect. The staff were both courteous and extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean, up to date, and properly equipped. WiFi is free and worked well for us on a number of devices. The bed was comfy with high quality linen. The shower produced ample hot water. One small criticism is that the shower head is positioned a bit too high (around 7') and my wife wasn't able to reach it. The infinity pool is very pleasant and the surrounding area includes lots of loungers. I'm a bit sun-shy so I would have preferred a few more parasols. There were works going on next door but they didn't bother us. We mistakenly left some clothing there but the staff managed to send it on to us so that we picked it up in Manado airport. We want to say a big thank you to them. Santika was definitely a highlight of our holiday.

The first impression is very good as I was pick up at the airport, free of charge and it's surprisingly close from the airport. They have snorkeling gear available at the hotel so I spent my afternoon in the beach right in front of the hotel. The breakfast is good, I gave it a try to many kind of local foods. And the waiters are very friendly. Next time I visit Luwuk, I'll stay there again.

Santika is one of my choice when I'm travelling in the past. That's why I choose this hotel when I'm at Luwuk. First of all, as far as I know, Santika didn't build this hotel from the beginning. They took over and renovated the hotel. The results, can be seen that this hotel is not like usual Santika. The hotel is clean and nice. While the style is outdated, it is the lack of facilities that will make you think again before you choose this hotel, compared to the competitors nearby as the price they offered is not that far different. The swimming pool is nice, but they gym is too small and the restaurant is limited (no bar or such as far as I can see). Oh, and no spa and whatever kind of it. The room itself is nice. You can choose sea view for maximum experience. But be warned, it could get hot in morning as it's directly face to the sun rise. In my experience, I continuously heard banging noise all the time. Don't what it is, though it could get annoying, I can still get good sleep. The breakfast is quite delicious, though the menu is limited, including the quantity. Maybe that's because not many visitors there. They put plate on the serving, that resulted the food is not heated properly. Overall, the location is good (not as remote as competitors), the view is stunning, the staffs is nice. This hotel could be your choice, if you're not expecting more. I'm not sure the management will improve the lack of facilities, but if they do, I'll highly recommend this hotel.

it has good location, on top of a hill facing the ocean, but the hotel itself is plain and without character. Santika has adequate amenities amd facilities. but there are much better options in Luwuk.

made the stay from sept 30 to oct 2 2017. the hotel is quiet new with 77 rooms. building is quiet narrow. but the room are clean and comfort (but the twin bed is little bit small). Make sure to ask for room facing the city and the sea. Enjoy the spectacular sunrise every morning. ps : the gym only provide 1 treadmill and 1 stationary bike. swimming pool is small but you can enjoy the view while swimming.
