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

What an incredible experience.We were a party of four that stayed at Eco travel in Bukit Lawang. Two of us did the two day trek and two the one day. Both of us were incredibly impressed with the degree of care, knowledge and hospitality shown by our hosts. To say it was not tough would be a misnomer. My advice... More

However if you have the opportunity take one of their Rooms ( they have warm watet which is quite rare in Bukit) plus it is very nice located Directly at the River. When we arrived... More
