This is definitely a recommended guesthouse for solotravelers like me. The guesthouse is mainly visited by scientic research teams and biologists doing their work in the rainforests so you get very interesting talks here in a whole different ambience than the average guesthouse. The owners treat you as their own family so you will feel home quickly. I specially value... More

If you are staying in Palankaraya, you should definitely stay here, even if it's only for one night. Thomas and Beatrice are very nice, and they can help you out with anything. They build this whole place themselves. The cabins are made of wood, and there is a nice garden and also a small natural pool. Breakfast, lunches and dinners... More

Why stay in a bland, faceless hotel when you could enjoy the unique experience of Bukit Raya guesthouse, at a fraction of the price? Thomas and Beatrice are Swiss, but have lived in Indonesia for many years and and their love of the place ispalpable. They speak Indonesian, German and English.

I have stayed at Bukit Raya twice - and both were a very nice stay indeed. I experienced that it is quite hard to find Bukit Raya on my first visit since it is located a bit remote from the main street. The place is really nice and natural, and the dogs are really cute. They also have a traditional... More

Thomas, Rietje and Hans are just soooo helpful. I've never experienced anything like it. Whether it was organising a guide for a number of fully customised trips to record bird and nature sounds, arranging meetings with musicians, help with transport or tips for food, these guys were always eager to share their passion for Kalimantan and help wherever they can....
