We assume that you'll be careful with the wooden environment, so that you won't smoke in your room and that you accept that we would like everyone to have a good night rest.
Thomas' place was great. The entire place is very well maintained and it was a great place to explore Palangkaraya from. It was also very nice to have a delicious dinner with everyone who stayed there at the time as us (at a very reasonable cost). Thomas set us up with a tour guide that took us to see some of the area and to see some orangutans! The property was very very nice. My only wish is that we had had more time to enjoy the place.
Rietje is an extremely generous and accommodating host. I'm anticipating a wonderful stay at her guesthouse. She has also been very thoughtful in preparing me for my trip to Kalimantan, and keeps well in touch via email.

About the Host, Thomas
Since many years we are living and working in Central Kalimantan. We would like to invite our guests to experience a little bit of Kalimantan. In our Guesthouse, you can meet traditional Dayak constructions and building materials combined with modern timber architecture with a fine taste of well-organized service. If you come to Kalimantan, you may know that this is not the most developed part of Indonesia. We try to offer you an interesting mix of living in a simple, culturally adequate environment combined with some basic luxury and feeling-good facilities. Tropical lifestyle asks you to interact with nature, local customs and habits. Yes, we try to keep bad habits and unexpected encounters with animals away from you, but yet you risk meeting things you probably wouldn’t meet in the 5-star hotel in air-conditioned rooms with marble and glass architecture… With other words: we do not try to turn Kalimantan into Europe! Are you ready for the challenge? We would love to host you in our house and make you part of the family for a certain period of time! Welcome to Kalimantan!
