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 stayed here for 4 Nights, including 1 overnight-trek in the jungle. The bamboo huts are so nice, with a a great jungle view and a nice interior. The personnel is awesome, everbody was so nice and friendly. The jungle trip offered by On-the-rocks was a great experience, especially the guides Baik and Nanda did a great job. We saw... 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!

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...
