“Relaxing, peaceful and a very unique experience in Indonesia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We enjoyed a beautiful 1 1/2 hour boat ride to Telunas; passing by many islands, villages and wooden fishing boats. Upon our arrival we were greeted with delicious icy orange drinks followed by a wonderful lunch. Ian was our guide and she did a great job! Our first day was spent just swimming and enjoying the beach. The following day we went to the island of Jang and visited a school and ate lunch with a local family. The visit to the island continues to make one appreciative of all we have been blessed with in the U.S. The poverty is just unimaginable. When we returned we did the jungle trek to the waterfall. It was around 10.2 kilometers (roundtrip) and hot but still an experience you don't want to miss. We actually saw monkeys swinging from the trees! The food was excellent and plenty of it! The banana crepes are the best I have ever had. Sleeping over the water, windows open, balcony door open and listening to the geekos was totally awesome. The staff was the best....very friendly and welcoming. As an American traveling in this part of the world, it was an adventure like no other and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I'd love to return and being my grandchildren!

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!

Telunas Beach S, Guest Relations Manager at Telunas Resorts - Telunas Beach Resort, responded to this review, April 21, 2013
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.
