The rooms were beautiful and the beds were extra comfy. Despite the humidity outside, the temperatures inside were perfect. The included breakfast was fantastic and as the only foreigners staying there, we were waited on throughout breakfast, being offered foods not available to the other guests. The whole hotel was a treat and the staff were very eager to please.
Only drawback was the staff's lack of English.
Grand Padma is a good place to stay in Tarakan. Good facilities and great personal in the hotel. It was a nice stay because they help us to much. All info that we asked them about Derawan and other places (how to get it and other infos).
