A haven for nature lovers. Far from any crowds, this is THE place to refresh your body and mind. Amid an extraordinary tranquility, lounge on your own deck in a jungle lodge, while listening to birdsong, the croaking frogs and the endless rattle of cicadas. Sit under a waterfall as a stream of chill, crystal water cascades over you. Avoid the Puncak's annoying traffic jams.
Be a pioneer.
