4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

On the rocks is a relaxed location, a little higher then the village but the view is worth the climb! The bungalows are clean and the view is magnificant! The staff is really helpfull and they have a pick-up service from Medan airport. We did a one day jungle trekking which was guided by two professional guides.

Having not made a booking, we joined up with another couple who told us about on the rocks. On arrival we were welcomed very warmly with fresh juice and help carrying our bags up the stairs. We were given all information we needed and more and decided to embark on a 2 day 1 night trek with the famous uncle... More

My husband and I stayed at On the Rocks in November 2014 and loved it! We had the bamboo room, which was simple but perfect, with a lovely view from the terrace, a comfortable bed and clean bathroom with a cold water shower and western style toilet. The guys at on the rocks were brilliant! So helpful! They sent somebody... More

It is a bit difficult to rate this place. On one hand, the location is very nice as it is just near the national park entrance. You can just walk 5 minutes and you will see some Thomas Leaf monkeys. The garden is very nice and you really feel in the nature. The stairs to get to the hotel can... More

Hello David, thank you for taking time to write a review. We already read the review of your friend "Nice location, room average". You stayed together in one of our bungalows and requested separate beds via the owner of your stay in Lake Toba. We got the booking in the same day of your arrival. We are a bit surprised... More

I stayed a couple of nights in this hotel. The stairs to reach the resort can put you off but once you reach the top the location is nice, the bungalows are surounded by nature with a peacefull atmosphere. Bungalows are very pretty with nice balconies but our room itself was very small with basic mattresses on the floor. While... More

Hello David, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. First of all we wanna clarify about our bungalow types. All our bungalows have one standard double bed. We don't offer Twin bed rooms. Your booking (via the owner of your accommodation at Lake Toba) requested two beds. That's why we placed an extra mattress on the floor.... More

We did not sleep here, but ate at the restaurant. The huts are beautiful and the food is great. The owner is German and she is incredibly friendly. Would we return to Bukit Lawang we would definitely like to stay at On the Rocks. The place is right on the border with the National Park so it’s easy to hear... More

We spent 6 days at on the rocks, inlcuding a 2-day jungle treck. As stated in all previous reviews: This is a quite place on a hill , you will barely hear the river. As soon, as you arrive we had the feeling of being in a paradise: Relaxing in the hammock at our bungalow, watching wildlife from our terrasse,... More

We booked a one night, two day trek through them and the entire thing was done brilliantly. Our guide; Harry was extremely knowledgable and all round great! And to... More

Writing this at KualaNamu airport after being dropped off by one of Wawans drivers. We stayed here for 8 nights, and in that time stayed in 4 of the bungalows (this was our choice), the first night we stayed in the Rock room, this is the most basic of rooms but has everything you'll need. Then we stayed in the... More
