We stayed in a Orang Utan room towards the end of ramadan. Those rooms are quite old and I wonder how you can build bungalown in the middle of tropical jungle without the possibility of opening the window ? With no air whatsoever coming across it ? The result was logically a heat in our room and the fans would... More

We loved our stay at Ecolodge, so serene and relaxing from the minute we arrived. The lodge backs onto the jungle, and still has everything you'll need for your stay. We stayed in the Orangutan rooms, they were large and had a fantastic outdoor bathroom that made the experience even more enjoyable. The food at the resteraunt is delicious and... More

The hotel lies across the river, so use a backpack in stead of a suitcase. The houses are very nice with a big terrace and a nice view at the well kept garden. The bed has a klamboe and there is a fan (no airco). The shower is partly outside with cold water, but that is nicely refreshing in the... More

I really liked the bamboo deco and the furniture was beautiful. It all looked great lit up at night and there's also a book exchange there. Prices re very slightly more expensive but, that's because it's clearly for tourists. Nice view across the river to the village too

I have been to this place many times since the last 15 years. It's rooms are simple, but clean and good. They are situated in the middle of a nice tropical garden, just on the border of the rainforest. This means jungle sounds during the night and early morning. They have a new restaurant, which is wonderful, completely made out... More

It is supposed to be an ideal location for one to immerse into nature. Unfortunately, the locals have a different understanding of having their fiesta by the river banks (opposite the lodge) with blaring loud speakers. While one can understand that the Ecolodge cannot control these crowds but I'm sure one can engage in dialogues and education at schools/villages to... More

We were with a group for a two night stay to see the Orangutan. The Eco Lodge is reached by crossing a rope bridge over the river. Your luggage is taken to your room. The rooms are basic but have all the facilities you need. There is a new restaurant which serves good food although a little pricey. You can... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bukit Lawang is a peaceful village in the province of North Sumatra. The location is a main access point into the green heart of Sumatra: the Leuser Ecosystem. You will have the unique chance to view rehabilitated and wild orangutans in a guided tour through the lush forests of the region. Staying in the Ecolodge Bukit Lawang is not only a unique ex­perience but also a personal statement in support of sustainable tourism. The facility provides an unprecedented opportunity to be immersed in North Sumatra’s unique rainforest environment while directly contributing to the conservation of the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan – with proceeds donated to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme. The Ecolodge Bukit Lawang was established to complement and serve as an outlet for the activities of the Bohorok Envi­ronmental Education Centre. Herein we aim to increase awareness towards biodiversity conservation and the implementation and management of proper ecotourism. ... more   less
