Recommended Hotel in Sumatra
Looking for good hotel in Sumatra is easy if you have set your destination, because Sumatra is a complete large island. There are so many touristic spots in this island, from the north to the south. From Medan to Lampung you can enjoy tropical charms, amazing beaches, ancient jungle, forest wilderness, tame animals, orangutans, Lampung’s elephants, and many more.
Let’s say you have much time to spend in Sumatra, and it is needed to enjoy the island from the tip north of the island to the south.
Speaking of Medan it would never be separated from Lake Toba. The best way to reach the giant volcanoe lake is from Merek, Berastagi. It is three hours to four hours drive from the airport. Don’t take mainstream route to get the less crowded area of the lake. You will be mesmerised by the part of the lake as it is relatively untouched by most tourists. If you want to visit Samosir Island, you have to traverse to Prapat though. Don’t spend too much time in Medan. Just go to Lake Toba and stay there for one night or two. Book one hotel room in Anju Cottage Samosir. It has fantastic view from the window of the hotel room.
When we spot Padang, we won’t recommend hotel in Padang city, but in Mentawai Islands, because this is where most tourists would spend their days. Padang has no enough touristic spots, compared to Mentawai whose great, amazing waves on their beaches. However, we found it difficult to book Mentawai’s hotel, because the cottages there aren’t registered to the mainstream booking-engine sites. You have to visit Padang and stay there at least one night before joining Mentawai tour. Stay at Rocky Plaza Hotel Padang for the best amenities in Padang.
Palembang isn’t as popular as other parts of Sumatra, but it still has the best hotel in Sumatra. Horison Ultima Palembang is one of the best hotel in Sumatra to stay.
