We recommend Indra Inn to everyone looking for company that makes you laugh and cares about you throughout your stay in they cutes jungle village of Bukit Lawang. You gave us the best experience of Indonesia altogether, really not exaggerating! Thank you John, Jacka and Obiwan. We will miss you and always when we think of you we will smile and feel happy.

Review submitted 1st September 2012 - from Kara

My husband and I stayed at Indra Inn in Bukit Lawang in early July. We would like to thank Obi-Wan and his beautiful family for a very pleasant, relaxing stay. We also wish to thank our jungle guide, Dedi, for an exciting and pleasantly strenuous jungle trek! I've attached some photos from our stay. I can't seem to find a direct email for Obi-Wan, so please pass our thanks on to him and his wife. We wish we'd had more time to stay in Bukit Lawang to enjoy the kind hospitality, beautiful setting and delicious food. Thank you!

Review submitted 27th July 2012 - David from Australia

I stayed at Indra Inn for 3 nights. I stayed in one of the new rooms located behind the kitchen which was really nice. A great balcony to sit and look out over the jungle and up the jungle path. Obiwan is a great host and looks after everyone. It's really cool sitting in the restaurant with all the local guys playing guitar and singing songs.

Review submitted 3rd August 2011 - from Heleen from the Netherlands

We stayed in Indra Inn for 4 days in june 2011. We have had a very very nice stay. The jungle with Obiwan, Jacka and another guide was fabulous. We've seen so many orang utan's, gibbons, kameleon, the great hornbill etc. Obiwan is a very nice guide, good host, he has a nice place to stay, the food is very good. We loved to be there and i hope i will come back there again. Thank you guys again for these fantastic days. We still miss you, big hug & greetings from Heleen, Yuri & Nena

We stayed in Indra Inn for a few days, and had a really pleasant stay. We also went to the jungle with Obiwan and his crew, which we loved!!! They were so nice and we had a lot of fun. We will never forget it! Waking up with all the monkeys surrounding us was amazing. And they know so much about the jungle, very interesting! We will definitely come back soon!

Wow, Iwan was such amazing host and very freindly. Iwan and Ranaldo took us into the jungle overnight and looked after us amazingly. We highly recommend eating drinking and fellowshipping at the Indra Inn. Thank you Iwan you are a a good man we had a fantastic time and will be back soon.

I've stayed at Indra Inn a few times over the last 6 years. Iwan and his crew are a good laugh and take care of everything you need. The Thomas Leaf room upstairs is awesome with the french doors that open up completely to have a great view down the Bukit Lawang path.

Have you stayed at Indra Inn?
