I stayed in their bungalow while doing my diving licence at Steffen's. The bungalow was one of the cleanest I saw in Pulau Weh. It's simple, with outdoor bathroom but what you expect for the price. :) And I actually liked the outdoor style shower, much better than the dark creepy showers in Iboih... The place is run by very... More

If you are a diver looking to save money so you can spend it all on diving, this is a GREAT place to stay. But frankly if you are NOT a diver, there is NO reason to visit Pulau Weh verses alot of other islands in SE Asia where there is actually something to see and do for non-divers and... More

My husband and I stayed here during a backpacking trip along the northern part of Sumatra. This was our starting point. The place is simple but clean and cheap. We slept in one of the bungalows for 5 nights and in the big house for 2 nights. The big house was also okay but I would recommend to book a... More

We had originally planned on staying at Seulako for 4 nights but after arriving we decided to shorten that to 2 nights. When we arrived no one working was around so we had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to come and help us. The room was your average bungalow, bed and toilet. When we tried to order some... More

So I was initially staying in Gapang Beach next to Lumba Lumba. But by chance I met a Belgian guy while diving and I was told that since it was low season the rooms are being rented out at half price: 25,000 IDR (normally 50,000 IDR) and the bungalows were being rented out at 50,000 IDR (normally 100,000 IDR). Sold!... More

We stayed 3 nights at Seulako, which is a very good price value option. We had a bungalow with a outdoor mandi. The bungalow was ok, but don’t expect a castle. It is simple and when it was windy outside it was also windy inside. The food was cheap and ok, but not diverse and also a bit dry. The... More

We stayed at this place for about 1 week. I must admit that this was the perfect place for what we were looking for when choosing to go to a remote island like Pulau Weh. It was not overcrowded with tourists. It was just the perfect amount of people to get a familiar atmosphere when coming home in the evening... More

I've been travelling now for five months in south east asia and seulako view is my favourit place. It's beautyful, quiet and very peaceful. There are a few animals around, hammocks to relax, a nice beach and a dive center just next door. But the best about all are the owner and the stuff. Lesely and Arun (owners) help in... More
