Stayed here for 2 nights. For an eco lodge it is very luxurious and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and full of jungle noises although they are only on the outskirts.The room we had in the Orang utan block was really comfortable with a mosquito net provided. The bathroom was outside with a little garden. We were told not to... More

The rooms here are basic but that's what we expected, beds come with mosquito nets which is very useful. We thought we heard thunder in the morning but ran outside to find lots of monkeys running across our roof and jumping into the trees. We were only staying two nights so we booked a 6 hour trek with a guy... More

We stayed in an Orang Utan room which was very comfortable and spacious. The separate bathroom was very large and contained an open-air garden. It concerned me that mosquitoes and monkeys could enter through the hole in the roof, but neither was of concern. In fact there was a severe lack of intruding creatures, just the geckos on the walls.... More

Firstly don't expect the Westernised Luxury and you wont be disappointed. Do expect an amazing stay in a place with monkeys at your front door and Orangutans in the forest behind you. Bukit Lawang is a wonderful quiet place outside of the weekend and we found nothing but friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are not refreshed everyday as guests in... More

We stayed at Eco Lodge with our two kids aged 3 and 6. Kids were amazed to see the monkeys just jumping from one branch to another right in front of our room. The place was great for kids. We woke up early to start our 3 hour trek and ended up seeing and feeding many orangutans. The important part... More

We stayed in the orangutan rooms which were booked through sunatra Eco travel who we booked our tour through. A lovely retreat whilst staying in the jungle. Beautiful rooms with fans and unique outside bathrooms. Very clean and good food. Lovely staff. No air con but I don't think there is anywhere in bukit lawang- it's the jungle after all.

This isn't the Ritz Carlton. There are no iPod docks, mood lighting or 1,000 thread count sheets. This is lodging on the edge of the Sumatran jungle. And reviews of this property should be based on that fact. There is no TV or Wifi, but the bed is comfortable. Our room was clean, although it got muddy after trekking. The... More

We stayed here for a few days, in the orangutan and butterfly cottages. First room had a tree in the bathroom! cold showers. We heard from another couple about a cockroachplague in their (butterfly)room but didn't see any ourselfves. Beautifull place with many (Thomas leaf?) monkeys. Just across one of the bridges. Special thanks to our guide in the jungle,... More

We stayed here for three nights on a trip booked through Eco travel. The trip was well organised with great guides and transfers, however the eco lodge was a disappointment. It has a great position and gardens but the rooms and buildings are tired and scruffy. Our room wasn't cleaned during our stay, although there seemed to lots of staff... More

We stayed with our 2 teenage daughters in the Orangutan Room. Ample room for all of us. Accommodation is basic but clean.we had our own bathroom but no hot water. We weren't able to get any laundry done - smelly jungle clothes as they wash no washing machines or dryers, but this was only minor and made me appreciate the... More
