Very nice ambience. Nice host mama Thyesza with nice food. Juz like the front pool. A bit far away from town so if u can get transport then it will be perfect.

We moved to Thyesza after staying in Tuk Tuk to find a perfectly quiet place here. At the time of arrival we were the only guests. We enjoyed the peaceful and quiet ambience very much. It is owned by a very friendly and hospitable family, we immediately felt at home. The rooms are immaculate and have good beds! We had...

Stayed at Thyesza's for about five days and has mixed review. First thing first - location. It's in a very tranquil part of toba called Ambarita (not Tuk Tuk as google earth shows). Good thing is the guest house has a very nice water front where you can sit and just watch time pass, the bad thing is it's absolutely...

We had fantastic time at Thyesza. Mama Thyesza is a wonderful woman. She was so caring & warm when we got to her hotel at night (after long tiring day). She cooked WONDERFUL dinner. We decided to have dinner every night at the hotel, we had great meal everytime we were there. She is really taking care of her visitors....

We spent 3 Nights at Thyesza Guesthouse and really enjoyed it! The Toba lake is already a quite place, but if you want to be for yourself you don't go to the backpacker busy palce Tuk-tuk but to the Guesthouse Thyesza! You can swim alone on the large lake or have a delicious dinner, cooked by Ibu Thyesza. The Guesthouse...

My hubby and I visited Samosir (may 2010) and had a awesome holiday staying at Thyesza Guesthouse. Thyesza is located next to the lake. You can practically just jump in for a swim. The water is clear and cool - wonderful to cool down on a hot day. In front of us is this massive volume of clear cool water...

The great thing about Theysza Guesthouse are actually two things: the owner and the location. The owner, who calls herself Mama Theysza, is the type of manager that wants to make sure you're fine. If it rains she'll run out wiht an umbrella to guide you from the lakeside tables to the homey inside of the guesthouse. The location is...

I went to Thyesza Guesthouse last month. It is located on Ambarita, a village around the Toba Lake. It is quite calm and peaceful there, out of crowd, though some tourist did a party on the night I stayed, but it didn't quite disturbed me though. What I like the most is the view offered by the guesthouse, an incredible...
