Response from sugionodjojo, Owner at Ue Datu Cottages
Responded 3 Aug 2019
Dear Denis, I am truly sorry to hear that your stay at Ue datu did not meet your expectation. We take guests' thoughts about us seriously, and would do our best to make sure such incidents will not happen again in the future I have informed all staff not to hesitate to use back up electricity whenever needed , since electricity blackout happen often, and pressure pump and water heather need constant energy power. Please call for immediate assistant . Our manager is a local housewife name Wati, and she does not speak English. I personally like the local touch and give the guests and the staff an experience to understand each other. Thus the man said to be the manager was not what he said he was, nor working for Ue datu. Please be alert that I cannot stop local guide, whether licenced or not, not to approach our guest. We do not sell or provide any tour or transportation package in addition to that. Anything the guest need, we simply contact local operator to provide the service. So it would be best practice for guests to shop and re-assure themselves before entering a contract with anyone. I wish you a fruitful trip across Sulawesi, and enjoy the rest of the vacation to the Max. Sincerely, Sugiono Owner

We stayed there only 1 night driving from Rantepao to Ampana. Cottages are rather basic but still very nice. There is very quiet, far from city center but walking distance. Breakfast included was quite good, we enjoyed staying there. WIFI is good, parking free. It is good to make a trip for fish.

We took the bus "Rappan Marannu" from Rantepao which was a 14 hour ride. We reached Tentena at 10pm. But Ue Datu Cottages already arranged GoJek for us to be picked up from the bus station to the hotel for IDR 20,000 ($1.50) each bike (we needed two bikes). The bike riders are used to carry passenger with luggage so don't be weary. We had three backpacks and two hand luggage. We fit fine on two bikes that took us to the hotel. The hotel was nice and clean, facing the beautiful lake. The rooms were good and there was good hot water, strong Wifi. They served breakfast which was pretty good. The hotel staff arranged car to go to Ampana as well. There are a few restaurants on the other side of the lake which you can walk (taking the wooden bridge) in 15 minutes. The fish is very good and the amount of food served is fulfilling. We stayed 3 nights as we used it as a base to see Megalithes in the Bada Valley, explore Tentena and then go to Ampana for our 1pm ferry, Manakarra Express (IDR 130,000/ $9.75) to Togean islands. For Bada Valley, we had a GREAT guide named Petrus Sinawan, we can't recommend him enough. The next day after our Bada Valley trip was the Thanks Giving day in Tentena, and Petrus Sinawan was generous enough to invite us to have lunch (free) with his friends. Tip for Ampana ride: Make sure you have four travelers so that you can split the cost of the taxi to Ampana, its cheaper that way.

I arrived from Rantepao by car early in the morning. My friends drove further to Ampana. I stayed 2 nights. Mr. Nyong welcomed me friendly and offered breakfast. The room was clean with a comfortable bed (with mosquitonet) and good bathroom (hot shower). The wifi worked also very well. Mr. Nyong told me, if I need something I should just call him. He spoke good english and is working also as a trekking guide. The next day he took me with his motorbike to the waterfalls and the beautyful lake. On the way he showed and explained me all kind of plants, his knowlege is just amazing. Was a great tour. He also organized me the further transport to Ampana. If you have time, its really worth to make a stop in Tentana Ue Datu Cottages, a very nice place and a beautyful region. I can highly recomend Mr. Nyong if you need any help or like to make a tour. He's your men.

If you are looking for quiet, this is it. Expect to rise and sleep early. You may well be woken by the cockerels crowing, there are a lot of them. And 9pm feels like 2 am. Apart from the hard to avoid mould the rooms were clean, and very comfortable. Bonus for Brits and anglophiles: They provide a kettle for making your own cup of tea! In addition to being a good places to hide and relax, and take walks in the beautiful countryside, Ue Datu is a good place to organise tours, especially to the still not easy to reach by yourself Lore Lindu park and its iconic megalith. The local trekking guide, who goes by the nickname of ‘Nyong’, is a fountain of knowledge about how to arrange further travel, and one of the most helpful people I have met in my travels in Sulawesi. I regretted dearly not setting more time apart for this part of the country. Just one warning, Ue Datu provides dinner only on request. If you wish to ‘dine in’ you need to make this known in the morning. In return the food will be freshly cooked from scratch, and delicious.

The cottages are really nice. The hotel is located 5/10mn away walking distance from the center. There is someone in the hotel to help you organize your journey (renting scooter or finding a bus ticket or a shared car for your next destination). The breakfast was good

We stayed one night at Ue Dattu Cottages. What we can say about this place is : - The rooms are clean, with a fan, a mosquito net and a bathroom with warm shower. - You can order varius things for breakfast, from toasts with jam and peanut butter to eggs your style and fried noodles, with coffee or tea. The restaurant is located in a nice place with a pond - At Ue Dattu Cottages you can find Nyong. He was very nice to us, as he helped us travel further and made many arrangements that helped us greatly in our journey, this in a place where not many people would speak or understand English. Wheather you want to do some sightseeing around Tentena, travel and visit Lore Lindu National Park, or travel to the Togians, Nyong will help you. With his permission, we are mentioning his phone number (+62 853 417 699 97). If you are coming to Tentena with the bus, the bus stop is 3-4km away from town, but Nyong can arrange to pick you up. To sum it up, we do recommend Ue Dattu Cottages, both for its good rooms, and for what Nyong can do to make your travel what you want.

After a 15 hours bus ride from Rantepao my dad and I arrived in Tentena in the middle of the night. We were very happy that someone from Ue Datu was already eating for us. We were picked up and driven to the Cottages. For many tourists, Tentena is just a short break for a good nights sleep on the way from Toraja to the Togean Islands (or the other way round). Luckily we stayed more than one night because Tentena is a beautiful place with many things to see! Th cottages were basic but very clean and provided everything we needed. The breakfast is simple but good too. The reason I for a 5 star rating is the service. Nine, the guy at the reception helped us book a speedboat from ampana to wakai the next day and helped us get a driver to Ampana. More than that he did a one day tour with the car with us. It was awesome having him as a guide at the local market, the water falls and the nice beach. He is a super friendly and kind guy and explained everything to us (he can speak English well). He even spotted a well hidden Hornbill Bird in the trees :) Spending the day with him and exploring the region of Tentena was one of our Sulawesi Highlights. At the end of the day he returned with his wife to bring Durian for us which we were looking forward to try (by the way we loved it :D) I can recommend anyone to stay at Ue Datu Cottages you wants to regain some energy between the long bus or car rides and get help with booking the transportation to the Togean Islands :) But more than that, if you have some spare time, take an extra day (or two) in Tentena and explore the area with Nine :) Thanks again for the awesome day and greetings to Nine :) Best regards, Tim & Michael

Slept in the economy cottages the first night. Very tiny and a shared squat toilet with bucket shower. We arrived very late and only needed to sleep, so this was fine. Would not really recommend though. Second night we had a room at double the price, but it was much, much better. One of the staff members knew a lot about how to get to the togean islands and was very helpful with arranging our trip to ampana. We shared a car with two other people for a few euro's per person more than public transport, which meant we could get to the togean islands in one day, instead of hopping bemo's and buses for a day and having to spend the night in ampana. Overall, I think this is a good (and possibly the only) choice in tentena.
