First of all - the hotel is amazing. We hadn't such a nice sleep on our trip anywhere else. Very comfy. The jungle trek is exhausting but worth it. We saw 10 orang utans, far away and up close. So great! Our guide Anton was very entertaining. There's plenty of other groups but others left behind trash, our group didn't.... More

My boyfriend and I booked the "Jungle meets beach" package with EcoTravel Bukit Lawang. The best part was the 2-day jungle trekk - we saw orangutans, Thomas leaf monkeys, white and black gibbons, macaques (long tailed and pig tailed), water lizards and many other animals. Our guide was Anton - he is a really good guide who knows to answer... More

The first thing to say is that maintaining 5 stars on TripAdvisor is no easy task. What this should tell you is that of course the accommodation is lovely, as is the breakfast, but to maintain a 5 star rating the service and staff are crucial. Apologies here as I have no idea how to spell the names I will... More

We chose the day tour and was not disappointed. We saw plenty of orangutans and other wildlife including a toucan. The walk through the jungle is not for the faint hearted and a certain degree of fitness is needed. I don't think we missed out on anything by doing the one day in fact it poured down rain the night... More

Excellent experience with guide Antonio, Eno and Indira. I could see lot of wildlives including Orangutans, Thomas's leaf langur, Long tail and pig tail macaque, Rhinoceros hornbill, venomous moon snake etc. The hospitality of eco travel and food in Bukit Lawang village was just awesome.

We visited the EcoTravel Resort for 5 days and we were more than surprised that a jungle resort can deliver such a high quality of rooms, food and location altogether. The rooms have excellent hotel standard and are lovely and modern. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect because it is close to the National Park... More
