We had a perfect and relaxed stay at Malenge Indah. It is a small and familiar cottage, with few bungalows and a nice beach in front. Good and quiet vibes. Nice food and with plenty options of excursions (walking/by boat) and snorkellings. Perfect is you wanna feel as Tom Hanks in ‘Cast Away’. It is a local place, skip it if you are looking for western beach parties. Just make sure about the prizes before you go there, we had a misunderstanding with this guy at the harbour and when we arrived the manager told us different prizes.
This place was just amazing. The best fish I have ever eaten. (Thank you Gun) I spent 4 nights here and two of them were all alone. In the evening I played chess with the cook. It's a challenge ;-) it was just great !! The cottages are clean and the bed is comfortable. You can go snorkeling right outside the front door and Pulau Papan is within walking distance. Thank you for the great stay.
I went to a couple places in the togians and this one was like a family (but less annoying and more coconuts). I swore I would go back one day, and I firmly plan to ! I enjoyed : the staff, the food, the location, the authenticity, the reasonnable prices, the beer !
What a nice place to spend some relaxing days! We enjoyed the hospitality, our clean, comfy bungalow, excellent meals and great snorkelling. After reading the comments about the staff not speaking English, we were told that the owner was exceptionally on the mainland for a few days. The owner speaks good English and is a very friendly and helpful guy. We can really recommend the place!!
Our stay at Malenge Indah was good but could have been better. The location is very beautiful. Cottage was simple but fine. When we arrived we were not welcomed at all. The room was not ready yet (no problem) but when it was ready our bags were just dropped at one of the cottages without saying any word. We did not get any explanation about breakfast/lunch/dinner, excursions, anything. So it was not a very “personal” experience. Also, they were out of Bintang 2 of the 4 days and even out of toilet paper one day.... again, no communication or solution about this, just “toilet paper finish” 😅 and good luck! As I said before, the location is very beautiful and we did some nice snorkelling trips. The food was good. So all in all, we had a pleasant stay but there is room for improvement.…
We stayed 4 nights. The communication about the booking was very difficult, and not because of the bad connection on the Togians. When we arrived, nobody spoke a welcome word to us or explained anything. The staff is friendly but hardly speaks any english. The bungalows are very nice, especially with the hammocks. The food is very good as well, fresh fish every day. The snorkeling trips and the house reef are really amazing. We liked the place, but they can improve their contact with the guests.
This is a resort managed by local people in a very efficient way. The beach is swept every morning, the excursions trips works flawlessly and the food is tasty and everybody get his fair share. The bungalows are basic but clean and comfy. Every bungalow has the toilet attached and a small veranda looking at the sea. The electricity is only available after sunset. Also no wifi and no phone signal. The beach is gorgeous with trees and slender palm trees, the snorkel near the beach is just fine nothing to scream and shout about. I spent 3 days here but I could easily stay a week because there is walkable options in the island: I specially enjoyed the visit to the Bajau village in pulau Papan. Coming here it is not easy I recommend to read my tips in the Kepulauan Togean Nasional Park section. I recommend this place to nature and beach lovers and travellers who do not mind a little bit of discomfort to get a taste of a paradise. Local people is friendly and helpful whenever you need assistance; so do not be afraid of asking for directions or tasting local food.…
We where alone for 3 days & they made us feel like 👑 kings. Really good food & awesome beach. We went 3 days snorkeling & discover lot‘s of species. In the night there is plancton & lots of fish around.
This is definately our favourite accomodation in the Togians. The staff is so welcoming and friendly, the beach is secluded and beautiful woth some decent coral in front. Good value bungalows, and real laudback atmosfere
We stayed at Malenge Indah for three nights and really enjoyed our time there. The beach is beautiful and the cottages are surrounded by jungle. The cottages are basic (Indonesian style) but comfortable and roomy. The staff was very friendly and the food excellent. You can actually walk to the Bajo village on Pulau Papan from there, accompanied by the friendly dog from Malenge Indah. It's a great place to relax for a few nights and it was our favourite on the Togians.
