The boat ride from Sekupang to Telunas was indeed very long. But just need to bear with it. The villa is rustic and pretty. But maybe due to the water pressure supply, there is no water house. Can't sleep well in my first night, perhaps is due with mozzies, sea wave and insect

Hi Cherrie T, Thank you so much for visiting us at Telunas Private Island and taking the time afterwards to post a review. As you mentioned, for some, the boat ride to Telunas can seem long. 2.5 hrs total between 2 boats might seem like a long time for guests who rarely spend time on ferries/boats. What I do like is that the journey is split in 2 pieces. The first 1hr section is by a 3rd party international fast ferry and the second is 1.5 hrs (max) on our unique, open air, private wooden longboats. While I know many love the winding journey through mangroves, islands, and over-water villages (myself included!) some might just be ready to arrive. Often our guests who have tried out all the boutique private island and rustic beach resorts will tell us that the journey to Telunas is much smoother and easier than to others - e.g. getting to some private islands near Bintan, you need to take a 1hr+ ferry, immigrate, 1hr+ car ride, and then still get in to a boat for up to 45 min to arrive. Also, you mentioned that there was no water house, but I'm unsure what you mean by this. Perhaps you could drop me an email at aj@telunasresorts . com to let me know what you mean? Anyways, thanks for your visit and review...see you again soon! Cheers, AJ
