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

On the rocks in Bukit Lawang is something of a rainforest paradise. It has beautiful wooden cabins, great bathrooms, extremely helpful and friendly staff who served great good at budget prices. 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

We stayed here at the beginning of September for a night either side of a trek into the jungle! The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and one of the guys lugged my huge bag up all of the steps for which I was very grateful! Our bungalow was fantastic, the views are stunning and the place has a great... More

Porters carry your bags up the hill (for a small tip). The villas are lovely - but have very little storage space. Highlight is definitely the trek. We did a 2 day - which is actually a day and a half. The trek we did was very hard - with parts of scrambling up and down - although I understand... More

We came several times to “On the rocks” to get back to the roots of the Indonesia we love. Leaving in Medan, the quick trip to Wawan’s place is not only a huge change of scenery, this is also like going back at home. Just being there back in the nature, seeing flying squirrels jumping from trees to trees and... More

We stayed at On The Rocks for 7 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff is super accommodating, nice and a lot of fun. The food is fantastic and the location up on the hill absolutely superb!
