“Surprising Indonesia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great stay at Telunas Beach, participating at the workshop on social entrepreneurship. Telunas Beach is a great example of such approach. For someone from Central Europe, Telunas Beach offers unique combination of exotic destination, exposure to great beach and wild rain forests, adventurous lodging and mainly, superb service from local staff. Keep up the good work, friends!

Room Tip: Take a chalet on the west side!

As a solo-traveling woman from the U.S., I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Telunas Beach last August. Very comfortable rustic is the style, quiet, clean, peaceful, and with great staff who made me feel very welcome and introduced me to the local lifestyle. I highly recommend this place for anyone who would like to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of city life or large resorts.

We have been to Telunas Beach twice and absolutely love it. After all the hustle and bustle of work, life and school in Singapore, Telunas Beach offers the opportunity to unplug, unwind and reconnect. We left all the electronics at home. Our children had to think of things to do - they played cards, games, went shrimping and played with new friends on the beach. As a family we went on a waterfall hike and celebrated New Years Eve together. I love having only one meal option to choose from, it eliminates the debate with the kids over what they have to order from the menu. Despite 5 days of no tv, no internet and no ipods, our kids are always crushed to leave! They are already asking to return. This is a place we will continue to return to with our family and friends.

with no Internet connection, Telunas is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. The chalets are very comfortable, the staff very hospitable, and Elsa was a superb host! Relaxing with nature all around was very rejuvenating, plus the kids could safely run around, fish, and play.

The view from the 4 outer chalets is awesome! We spend our day lazing in the hammocks at our private balconies, fishing and playing beach volley and frisbees! Food served was quite nice but at times not enough to feed everyone.. Other than that, perfect getaway from the buzz of the city!

Thanks for your positive review and helpful notes. I've followed up with your comments about the food to ensure that this situation should not happen again. It seems there was an underestimate of food prepared for the children during your stay. (They seemed to enjoy the food immensely.) In the future, should the food not measure up to your standard or quantity, please express your concern to your host and they should address your concerns. Our aim is to prepare great food in reasonable quantities that provides brainless delights for our guests.

Thanks again for your constructive comments.

We all have very pleasant memories of our stay at telunas. Thank you all of you :) thanks Citra for being so personable and hospitable. Thanks Lilis for being so sensitive and prompt in helping with our enquiries. Thanks to all the staff who worked tirelessly behind the scenes while we enjoyed ourselves, whether they be the room service staff or those who went prawning/fishing at night, to the kitchen staff who whipped up such delicious food. I never saw a grouchy service personnel at all during my stay.

You know you're far away from it all when you take an hour-long ferry ride from Singapore, then an hour-long longboat ride (where we did not see a soul) before arriving to cheers and cool fruit drinks. It really was Fantasy Island-esque, right down to being greeted warmly by one of the owners (who was vacationing with his family for the holidays). We really could not have asked for a better location or better people. It really had all the qualities of a great family camp - all open-air rooms, great activities (the ropes course was a hoot), shady beach, high dive and nighttime bonfire - all orchestrated by fun, smiling staff. The food was very good and the fresh-caught fried squid was a real treat. Guests come from around the world - my kids played cards with teens from Sweden, Hong Kong, France and Canada. It was an invaluable experience.
Tip: Feel free to bring your own wine and liquor - there's only beer for sale in the canteen. The resort graciously kept our wine in the fridge for us.
