I stayed for 3 nights before end of Nov 2013. The resort is located about an hour's drive from airport. The compound of the resort is very big! Situated right at the beach, with 4 villas, it is a perfect setting for a quiet getaway. The villa is big and clean. Food is very delicious and serving is generous! So... More

I stayed at the resort 3 nights over the weekend. Browsing TA I had found the reviews very interesting due to the fact that the resort appeared not to be spoilt by hordes of tourists, this being driven by the size of the place (4 bungalows) and the slightly inconvenient location (3.5 hours flight from Jakarta then 1.5 hour drive)....

We spent there with my family of three small kids for five nights. The resort is just at the beach, so we don't have take a car. Also, the waves are so gentle and the water depth is very shallow, 50 cm, so we don't have to watch kids so carefully. Kalinaun is the only villa at this beach. So... More

We spent 6 days at Kalinaun Resort last week. From the start at the booking process, which was handled by Roberto, I got the impression that everything was efficient but done in a relaxed manner. I was not wrong. Allesandro met us at the airport and was not at all stressed even though our flight had arrived late. The one... More

Let's start by saying that we probably aren't the typical visitors to the Kalinaun. I have never dived let alone taken photos underwater and I think this is the intended visitor to the Kalinaun. We were there for the beach, to unwind and we had a two year old in tow. My wife speaks fluent Indonesian and we have traveled... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Kalinaun Resort which has only 4 bungalows. We were the only guests and will remember this for ever. Located one hour from the airport, the resort is planted on a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunrise and sunset. The two italian brothers (Roberto and Alessandro) and Olivia welcome you literally to their home... More
