Amazing location in the heart of the jungle on the river. The hosts treat you like family and go out of their way to help you. All meals were delicious. The walk from town to Back to Nature is stunning. Hosts were also more than happy to sort out any jungle treks to spot orangutans.
Beautiful ecolodge in a breathtakingly beautiful environment, very nice manager and staff, absolutely worth the walk from the village of Bukit Lawang. It was an amazing first 1 week of our stay in Sumatra. The place really merits the name "ecolodge", very sustainable. Thank you!
Back to Nature is a real blessing! Totally disconnect from society and immerse yourself in a simple, humble yet relaxed environment! From the day we arrived we were welcomed by the wonderful staff and the big boss Aca, and although we only intended to stay for 3 nights we extended our stay for an extra few nights! Good food, good people, good energies. What more do you want ?
I truly loved this place. It is away from the village in pristine jungel. We were lucky and saw both orangutang, white-handed gibbon, thomas leaf-monkey and both makak species (crab and pig-tailed) from the lodge. Fantastic! Our room, on the hill, had amazing view and was over-all very nice. Good food, we are vegetarians and thats no problem. I can really recomend to stay here but off course it is in the jungel so no 24 hour electricity, no toilet paper (since the paper is maid of jungel trees) but 5 stars in my opinion!
This hotel is more than worth the 40 minute hike if you are looking for a place with no distractions. The food and service were fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed every dinner, breakfast, and drink we had there. Fresh water is available to fill up water bottles before heading out into the jungle or the village. Sitting on the upstairs shared terrace or downstairs in the open restaurant you look across the river onto a wall of lush green jungle, spanning up and downstream as far as you can see. Monkeys and monitor lizards often frequent the far banks for drinking and washing, so sitting and dreaming your day away is always potentially eventful. The rooms are spacious and clean, though a bit dark during the day when there is no electricity. The beds are comfortable and clean, the mosquito net provided is free of holes and made-up with the bed on arrival and every morning. The bathroom has the necessary toilet and shower, and a coconut-rainshower. Or if you want just go wash yourself in the river. The staff were great, always willing to help or answer questions. We had a good chat with the owner on the last evening of our stay, he had some very interesting stories to tell about his lifeb and of his future plabs withthe hotel. If you're not planning on going immediately, keep this place on you watch-list for the next couple of years!…
