We have an amazing time in this place, great food and helpful staff. We also book here jungle trekking over night with a great guide who told us everything he know about the surrounding area, all runs smooth and we had also chance to see wild orangutans and other wild animals ! :)
Sam‘s place is the perfect place to sleep in Bukit Lawang. Had the upper room - very simple but clean and with jungle view from the bed. Best thing was the hammock on the balcony after my jungle trek, so relaxing! Also nice restaurant with beautiful jungle and river views. Had some nice talks with one of the staff, Pepito. And they even sent something I forgot with one of the next tourist busses to my next destination were I could pick it up. Thank you for making my time in Bukit Lawang extra special, would always come back!
I stayed here for a week with my husband and kids (8 and 9). Sam and Pipito are great people: caring and genuine. One if my kids fell ill and we had to take her to the hospital and they were very helpful. The hotel is situated at the end of town, which makes it a perfect, more quiet spot. They serve the best food in town - you should try their rendang, curries and fruit salad - that last one looks like a honeymoon dish <3 We also booked our jungle trekking (2 days) here. Our guide was awesome. I would really recommend all of it.
We stayed at Sam's 2 nights prior to a jungle trek and 2 nights after. Staff were welcoming and the room as good, it was 2 storeys with large bathroom downstairs. My only complaints were the main room was quite dark at night the globe's must be low wattage plus the hot water didn't last long which was only a problem when washing my long hair. The food was great! We ate at other places but they didn't come near the standard of Sam's. So we ate most of our meals there and the staff remembered our little fussy diet choices. The most amazing thing happened while enjoying a relaxing game of scrabble (games provided by warung) the staff pointed out a mother and baby orangutans that climbed out of the jungle and walked along the bank for about 80 metres. We had seen these orangutans a few days early during our trek (confirmed by our porters)!! I have no hesitation staying again or enjoying more great food at Sam's Bungalows.…
We had a great stay in Sam’s Bungalow. The staff were so friendly and attentive, they made us feel so welcome. Our room was very comfortable with excellent WiFi. Food was delicious! We ate here both nights for dinner and enjoyed sitting beside the river. Lovely menu for breakfast, the banana porridge was so so tasty! Sam’s Bungalow organised our jungle trek for us. We had a fantastic day, our guides were excellent and made the day so much fun! Thank you for a lovely stay! 😀
