Located at the end of the village near the boat crossing to the Orangutan feeding platform, and several other shops, places to stay and cafes nearby, but all the amenities you need are at Garden Inn. Food, beer and company! Frans and all the... More

I can only highly recommend Garden Inn for your stay in Bukit Lawang. I have been taken care of by the staff from the minute I landed and guided perfectly through the bus maze to Bukit Lawang. The accommodation is great, when you’re lucky, you even have a few frogs, geckos, and monkeys around you while you are relaxing in... More
