“Secrets of Serenity”
Reviewed December 17, 2009

A great place and location to get away from the hussle bussle of a city life. To top it off, it's also a perfect place to meditate, yoga, contemplate and sorts. I truly enjoy the view of Tanjung Tinggi Beach, especially the one at Bilik Beach. Magnificent!

This hotel is in the same village of Tanjung Tinggi about 1 hour from the capital of the Island of Belitung.

The hotel is situated on a pretty much deserted beach which has crystal clear waters and white sand. There are interesting stone formations in the water that you can swim out to.

The rooms at the hotel are bungalow style and very stylish with polished wood floors and attractive furnishings. The bathrooms are particularly good as they are open to natural light and have stone floors. The rooms are air-conditioned and have a mini-bar in which you can store your own drinks.

The hotel's restaurant is pretty good and reasonably priced when you consider how isolated the hotel is.

There is also a small local restaurant that is cheaper about 500 meters away. You could also stock up on drinks here.

When we checked out we paid 100,000 rp for a transfer back to Tanjung Pandan and they very kindly took us on a mini tour of the island for no extra charge.

Staying at the Lor Inn was a great experience and I hope I can go back someday.

We were recomended the Lor In as the best hotel in Belitung (http://www.lor-in.com/) however be warned this place is a real dive! To start with its expensive, around 800Rp for a beack front suite, well thats what they call it, more like living in a road side service station on a motorway of mopeds. The hotel is already in bad repair despite looking not finished, dont be fooled by the website the Lor In is basically a mish mash of badly positioned concrete bunkers which are cracked and leaking. The building quality is disgusting as is the food at the hotel. The rooms are dirty and the facilities all broken, the pool was out of action, the restaurant looked closed and the AC was leaking in our room. The location of the hotel also sucks, when in belitung you want to hit up the islands, the beach near the hotel is not iimpressive and the water a bit murky, the hotel is about a 50 minute drive from town and very remote so you would better off staying in a resort in kota or near the fishing port where you can get boats to the island. The Lor In is also built next to a main road so all day and night you will hear traffic and motor bikes. My advice is to stay out of this hotel it is *** and too far away from anything, the one reedeming feature is the staff are nice, but most people in belitung are when you come from jakarta!

As for the island itself, it is amazing, just get stait out to the island and font bother with the mainland, that said their is some excellent Mie Babi and Ayam Goreng to be had in Kota and brilliant seefood, there is also a good Koppi Susu place in the centre of town down a back street, thats to die for! Hope this helps someone planning to go to Banka Belitung, or Tanjung Pandan.
