We recently have just returned from a 5 day, 4 night visit of Tanjung National Park and we stayed at the Rimba Lodge and on their Klotok's for our trip. We were absolutely blown away by the service which we received and the way everyone at the lodge made our experience so wonderful. The lodge itself has a wonderful homey...

Thank you for your comments about our Rimba Orangutan Eco Lodge which are greatly appreciated. We especially appreciate your comments about our staff and our dedication to conservation. The lodge itself was built in 1989 with a Dayak design. We have kept this design, respecting the local culture and often visitors criticise the design as old fashioned. Your comments have...

Stayed here for one night after a day visit to the Park (which was outstanding and not long enough). The lodge is in a good central location for the park and I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The lodge (particularly the rooms) are very run down but the rest of the facilities are fine. I would still...

We stayed for two nights in the Emarald room of the lodge. The lodge is pleasantly designed, well equipped and comfortable. The room was equipped with running hot water and air conditioning. The best part was the elaborate mosquito net over the bed. However the floor make cracking sound, which could be disturbing to the companion particularly in the night....

Thank you for your response and we particularly appreciate your comments on the design, which is Dayak who are the indigenous people off this area. Our staff are all local people and we are pleased they looked after your vegetarian needs. Thank you for your support as we are slowly recovering from the terrible effects of fire late last year....

If you have been thinking of seeing and learning more about the orangutans, then do yourself a favor and visit this place! I stayed for 3D/2N and found it to be the bare minimum duration if you want to visit all 3 of the feeding stations. The lodge is located within the national park with a feeding station only 10...

Thank you for this wonderful report on our Rimba Orangutan Eco Lodge. It is so good to hear as during the height of the fires last year (September - November), we thought we may loose this lodge. The Tandjung Puting national park is an ecological jewel and thank you for your support.

We are a family of four (two adults and two teenagers) who stayed at the lodge as part of a 3 night/4 day jungle tour. Days were spent upon the Rimba King klotok with guide Purwadi and the boat crew and cook and nights at the lodge. We arrived at the lodge on Christmas day. While not a "luxury hotel",...

We spent two nights on a Klotok and 1 night here. The lodge is well maintained, with hot water and air conditioning available in certain rooms. The staff and friendly. Food was simple but delicious. The bathroom could certainly use more lighting (or better placed light fixtures) Unfortunately, the plantation fires were worse this year and affected visibility and our...

Thank you for your comments on your stay at our Rimba Orangutan Eco Lodge. We greatly sympathise with your comments on the smoke from the terrible fires. The advent of the monsoon rains has cleared the air and e hope for a great 2016. Our warm wishes for the new year

Lost in a rainforest filled with magic and nature which should be protected from burning and harvesting. Visiting the orangutans is one of the top ten travel wonders. With 97% human DNA you are looking at something/one like yourself. Mothers so protective of their young.

Well this certainly is an eco lodge in the jungle, but amazingly still has power, hot water and air conditioning. If you're looking for 5star with a pool this lodge is not for you but if you're looking at getting up close with nature and all the jungle has to offer then you can't go past Rimba. The Lodge is...

This lodge is by the river and in the forest, so you really feel part of the experience. The rooms are comfortable (with AC & hot water). Staff are recruited locally and are unfailingly pleasant & enthusiastic. Food is locally produced and delicious. It is all built on boardwalks (so no mucky boots). There is even a nature walk where...

Thank you for your great support through this report. Unlike others you really understand what we are. We have just opened a solar power system now recognised internationally as a state of the art facility. This gives our guests 24/7power and thus AC and we currently estimate we are saving 75,000 litres of diesel per year. Thank you,

Rimba Lodge was just fantastic! The rooms were clean and comfortable, with air conditioning, mosquito nets and an ensuite with a flushing, western style toilet and shower. This is so much more than I expected! The dining room is a great place to catch up with friends (and make new friends!) after a long, hot day exploring the jungle. The...

Many thanks and we especially appreciated your comments that we are NOT a city hotel. All our staff are local, many from the local village and the rest from Kumai town.
