This is an amazing and relaxing place to stay! It's a cozy place, with nature around you and a natural pool. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The food we had for dinner was very good as well. We got treated to some local dishes.
If you are still not sure what kind of tour you would like to do in Kalimantan (orangutang, deep jungle, towns etc.) you can arrange this with Thomas as well. If we would have known this before we would have arranged our week in Kalimantan directly with him and then we would have seen very different things we think because they know the area and know a lot of people. So we would definitely recommend this place!
It was absolutely fantastic, especially after a trip of 32 hrs. Thomas picked us up from the AirPort of Palangkaraya and was very friendly. When we arrived at Bukit Raya we felt right at home and we could completely recover from our journey. The staff were also very friendly and helpfull. And a special thanks to you all for helping us for our further journey to Tanjung Putin National Park. The guide you arranged was very nice and we had a amazing trip.
Rietje and Hans are very helpful, very friendly, and incredibly kind.
We had a wonderful stay at home.
We felt like family.
We continue to think much of them as well as Ibu Titin, Robert mama and little Jo.
You are all ingrained in our hearts and we thank you again for everything you have done for us.
We were in heaven and in Rietje Hans!
Recommend this absolutely paradise!

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!
