I have stayed at Bukit Raya twice - and both were a very nice stay indeed. I experienced that it is quite hard to find Bukit Raya on my first visit since it is located a bit remote from the main street. The place is really nice and natural, and the dogs are really cute. They also have a traditional... More

The fan runs with a timer,... More

Thomas, Rietje and Hans are just soooo helpful. I've never experienced anything like it. Whether it was organising a guide for a number of fully customised trips to record bird and nature sounds, arranging meetings with musicians, help with transport or tips for food, these guys were always eager to share their passion for Kalimantan and help wherever they can....

Was in town for a conference and stayed at the SwissbelHotel the first two nights and then switched to Bukit Raya Guesthouse. I would definitely stay at the Guesthouse if I find myself in Palangka Raya again. Thomas is a wonderful host and I am very tempted to join one of his great motorcycle expeditions! He also arranged, on short... More

Yes, we're very thankful that our guests like it here! The nature around us is lovely. We are glad that also the hammock, which is in the tree hut, is so appreciated. If you, reader, want to come to Palangka Raya, the capital of one of Indonesian Borneo's provinces, you ar more than welcome to come and take a look! More

Our main goal is that our guests really feel like entering an oasis while entering our complex. Like what is often said: Mr. feels at home and Mrs. feels being away. These feelings are important to us. Guests need the feeling of oasis and we are glad to be able to help them with this. Moreover, if something is different... More
