From the veggie garden to the restaurant

Regular guests will know we used to have a little veggie garden at our resort in Manado next to the lounge area. Unfortunately, the stuff just refused to grow, but now we have a new garden and it's doing great.
Our garden near the Hilltop rooms

Our new veggie garden supplies the restaurant with fresh goods for our guests.

After doing some renovation work on our Hilltop rooms, the surrounding gardens offered the perfect chance for our resort manager Arnol to revisit his earlier attempt at a vegetable garden.

The much more fertile ground near the Hilltop rooms was exactly what we needed, so Arnol and his team set to work on planning, measuring, digging, and planting.

Fast-forward a few weeks, and the fertile ground already proved its worth. The following delicious food ended up on our guests’ plates:

  • Cucumber
  • String Bean
  • Eggplant
  • Pumpkin
  • Lettuce
  • Carrot
  • Potato
  • Watermelon

And here’s the fun thing: guests who like to do our cooking class will be able to pick their own veggies, as well as learn a thing or two about the local strains of edible plant life. Having a veggie garden like this makes our Manado resort just that extra bit more special.

By growing our own ingredients we are cutting out polluting supply runs from the city, with the added benefit of cost-effectiveness of course. But the primary reason is that there’s simply nothing better than home-grown and freshly cooked food, straight from the garden onto your plate!
