Hotels in Makassar
Hotels in Makassar
are growing in number, size and diversity although when you compare Makassar to other more frequently visited areas the amount and selection is not as large as places like Bali
. This is to be expected and is really for many people on the main attractions of Makassar. Makassar is located on the southwest coast of Sulawesi and is the location of the airport for the southern region of the island. With tourism improving across the island on a low key level there are now more people who find themselves staying in Makassar before or after visiting other area or visiting Makassar's wonderful sights and beaches. Many of the hotels are modern although there are also many traditional style hotels but most hotels in Makassar retain the traditional heritage in some form whether it is the theme of the resort or just subtle color schemes, furniture or inspired styles. There are many different price ranges out there to find from the international level top end resorts and hotels through to absolute budget and everything in between. You will find that the prices tend to be of medium level in comparison to somewhere like Bali or Sumbawa; you can however expect your hotel to have a swimming pool and a traditional garden area with some good services and facilities.

are usually suitable for anybody and ideal for families and there is actually a lot to do and see with Makassar as you base where you will find all the services and conveniences you desire.
