Our third trip to Telunas in 11 months was once again a fabulous experience. We stayed three nights back in Deluxe Family Rooms this time and it felt like coming home. We know most of the guides by now and the service is excellent yet discreet. Nothing is ever too much trouble and our requests are met with smiles all...

We stayed at Telunas with friends to celebrate the New Year. Between us we were 4 adults and 4 children (ages 9, 7, 7 and 2). We've travelled extensively in Asia over the past 10 years staying at the moderate to high-end of the hotel market spectrum. Telunas has been a game changer for us and it will be part...

We visited Telunas as a group of 10 and we stayed in one of the dorm rooms. We knew that we'd be visiting an offshore island without aircon or hot water, so we lowered our expectations as to the facilities that we would be using for three days. However, none of the facilities were disappointing! Although there was no airconditioning,...

We spent our first week at Telunas over Christmas 2013. I had originally read a magazine article about Telunas, and then we discovered several friends had visited the place, and loved it!

We booked on a hunch and was initially filled with doubt if our 12 year old would enjoy the experience, given that she was to be torn away from the internet for FIVE days!

Best months? Hmm...Nov-April is when the water is clearest (with Dec-Jan being the clearest I've seen - I've stood on the jetty and have seen straight to the bottom of the ocean)

Humidity? I don't know that it changes that much as it is pretty close to the equator and only 50km south of Singapore. The difference in the feel (vs SG) is that both Telunas Private Island and Telunas Beach Resort are out on the ocean without any other structures around -- i.e., there are usually ocean breezes that make it feel cooler than Singapore.

Also, if you are wondering about a monsoon season, Telunas don't really have a regular "rainy season" but I've personally noticed more rainy days in April/May. The good news is that even then the rains are usually at most a few hours long as the sea winds bring the rains in and out fairly quickly.

Yes, both Telunas Resort properties have mobile network coverage -- with Telkomsel SimPATI providing the strongest available cellular service in the area.

Telunas does not offer wifi as helping busy people unplug (so they can reconnect with each other, nature, themselves, etc.) is one of the ways we serve our guests. Most who need to stay connected simply purchase Telkom SimPATI SIM cards (usually available at Sekupang International Ferry Terminal where Telunas hosts meet most of our guests).

Thanks for your inquiry, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions. Cheers.

Hi Paul B,

Great question! It is unsafe to jump from the Villa's (and Chalet's) and is not allowed. We do however have a very fun 10 meter high jump that is totally safe at Telunas Beach Resort that can be enjoyed by guests of both properties. At the Private Island, the end of our jetty is safe for jumping, too! :)

Fishing is permitted from the Sea Villa balcony and we are happy to provide guests with simple fishing gear. It is quite convenient to participate in water sports such as kayaking and stand up paddle boarding as this can be enjoyed right from our beach. Regarding cleanliness, I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but the water is safe to swim in. Depending on the time of year the water is less clear than others.

Hi Helen. All of the accommodations on both of Telunas Resorts' two properties are over the water. As both Telunas Beach Resort and Telunas Private Island are a great fit for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, you might consider reviewing the two properties on the Telunas Resorts website to see which would be best for you. Cheers!
