I stayed here for 11 nights and it was honestly a blast. The day I arrived staff were friendly and helpful and was greeted by cheeky macaque. The area where the bungalows are situated is just absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Because you are so high up (yes the stairs are not easy) you are away from all the noise below.... More

The bungelows are very stylish, but also very basic. They have a limited amount of lamps, no storage cabinets and a cold shower. The staff is very friendly and do whatever they can to make your stay pleasent. Rebooking our jungle track and rooms was still possible a day in advance in high season. Food is good and drinks can...

We stayed here a few nights and liked the place very much. Nice views, quiet, good service. We also did our jungle trek from here. We were somewhat unpleasantly surprised by the fact that when doing the trek they store your luggage, and you'll see 100K on your bill for locker storage. Also the boys from the hotel offered to...

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Bukit Lawang. Everything ran smoothly, from booking and arranging a jungle tour, to being treated to a cool drink on arrival and then being driven back to the airport five days later. All the staff were lovely- very attentive and always smiling. We loved both the rooms we stayed... More

What an amazing place to stay. Once you climb the 259 steps up to the gateway of the jungle you are greeted by wonderful staff and an atmosphere that will take your breath away. Leni is the most beautiful hostess and Suria and Nanda were an absolute delight. Nothing is to much trouble for these people. On the Rocks was... More

This resort is different from the rest because it is not next to the river, but a steep climb up the stairs. The climb is quite a challenge every time you go up, but it's worth it. A great view, especially from the honeymoon room (not all the rooms have a direct jungle view) and the restaurant (delicious curry's and... More

I can highly recommend this place, if you don't mind climbing up about 250 steep steps up the hill. They will help you organzing the transport to and from Bukit Lawang and carry your bag. The accomodation is very good and there are only a few huts, so you best book in advance. Booking in advance is simple and they... More

On the Rock's is the type of accommodation you don't want to write a review about because it feels like a hidden gem, that should remain undknown to the masses, on the other hand our stay was so good we owe it to the team to give them a top ranking.

The walk to the top where the resort is, is quite tiring and once you're up there you're loath to come back down, but the rooms are set amongst the tree tops so you can monkey spot at your leisure. The staff are really, really easy going and friendly and the whole place is very pretty to the point of... More
