review 29 Oct 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The 2 most exciting parts of my trip were the river boat trip where I got to see monkeys and birds close up and riding an elephant.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Enjoy the rhythym and pace of life in Sumatra. Make the most of the hot middle of the day by resting up for your afternoon/ evening activities.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

This lodge is a beautiful, accomodating place to stay. The food is excellent and plentiful-- I even got to try durian fruit. The host and guides were knowledgable and helpful. I went to Satwa to ride an elephant, see monkeys, and see the rhino sanctuary. I also saw a wild elephant, was invited for tea and a video at the rhino sanctuary, saw monkeys, deer, and wild pigs from elephant-back, and saw monkeys up close on the river ride!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. A clean, simple, yet comfortable lodge, great food, friendly people, lots of things to do. Even wifi!
