“Great destination”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

The staff at Telunas are quite simply brilliant. Their interaction with the guests and in particular the kids makes this place one you will want to come back to. A great place to just relax and unwind. The beach is clean and no sea lice. The rooms are basic but provide everything you need (byo shampoo) and the food is better than expected

Hi Roomraid,
Thanks for the positive review! We absolutely appreciate your taking the time to send in a quick review -- and hearing that you were able relax and unwind and that your kids felt cared for by our staff absolutely made my day.

Mea culpa for this late response. We at Telunas have had a busy few months preparing to celebrate Telunas' 10 year anniversary and the grand opening of our very own Private Island -- and so I'm going to try to get caught up over the next 2 weeks.

Anyways, may you have a great rest of the summer and know that while Telunas Beach will continue to be our beloved rustic bed-and-breakfast property, you now have a Private Island option available that offers a different level of simple comforts (e.g., where you definitely don't have to worry about byo shampoo!).

Cheers,
Dave

Our family had a fabulous time here. We were in Singapore for a vacation, and thought this would be a good add-on to our visit. It ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. The setting is quiet and serene, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is delicious! It is a great place to get away from it all (phones, electronics, TV), and just relax and unwind.

Hi ABCDtravelers,

Thanks for your visit and review. We're glad you found us and ventured down to Telunas during your visit to SE Asia for a more authentic island experience. We hope it inspires others to do the same as it's hard to have a Telunas type of experience within this kind of proximity to Singapore.

We'd be pleased to see you if you make another trip to the region!

Beautiful location. Everything was fabulous beginning with the boat to the island; the arrival and welcome; the rooms; the food; the beach; the activities available and jumping off the high platform into the water below. We say 'thank you' to all the courteous staff at Telunas.

I and the bunch of friends from Bandung, Indonesia recently traveled to Telunas on a school trip up to Telunas. Different from most people who comes by ferry from Singapore, we were greeted by Telunas staff at the Batam Airport. From that moment until we left Batam again couple days ago to go back to Bandung, we had the most perfect time ever.

Good thing about Telunas is that you get a chance to be disconnected from the life's businesses and just put yourself into a deep rest. Whether that rest is sitting in a hammock next to the beach, playing volleyball or bocce ball in the beach, or it is just looking out at the infinite ocean on the deck, whatever that means - suits your need for rest.

The guides here are very awesome as well - they are very courteous and friendly, and they are willing to sit down and talk about life at any time of pleasure - one thing about Telunas that I like as well. Many thanks to Elizabeth and the team of local guides who were part of our team.

Food in here is something that cannot be missed for. It is nothing else but AMAZING. Someone like me who eats rice in every meal may suffer a little bit, but the quality and the taste of food here at Telunas makes you forget about your rice-eating habit. Banana Crepes - I always wanted to try that for a second time but I was not able to. If you can, it is a must try dessert - it is just like a heaven's taste after a full meal.

Telunas Resorts that they are in plan to be operation in June is also awesome as well. I was given the opportunities to visit the Telunas Island, and I am very excited that Telunas is opening a new style of resort to serve wider variety of guests.

If you have been reading this site and was wondering if Telunas is the choice for your vacation, just make your choice. I guarantee you that you will not be dissatisfied at your visit here at Telunas.

Again, many thanks to everyone who helped our visit to Telunas be a perfect one ever!

Daniel from Bandung

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for representing the traveler within Indonesia. It fuels our service to hear stories like yours of how the environment and staff led to a restful and, at the same time, invigorating time for you.

Thanks for reminding the reader about the culinary delights at Telunas. Don't be fooled. For a simple place, you will not be disappointed with our buffet dining experience. To our Asian guests, if you ever have a craving for rice, do let our team know and we usually can take care of that longing as we completely understand the feeling of not having eaten if you haven't had rice!

It seems that discussion with our staff may have left a bit confused related to the island resort opening in June. Telunas Beach will continue to run quite like it is. Telunas Private Island will open June 6. Telunas Island will offer a bit more refinement (infinity pool, massages, additional service) with the same underlying values that our guests and friends have come to love about Telunas Beach Resort. Together we're grouping these under the label Telunas Resorts. Visit telunasresort.com for more.

Thanks again Daniel,

Brad Fleming for the Telunas team

Very quiet and lovely place. The staff was very kind, helpfull and efficient. Good organization, good food. A lot of little crabs on the sea...

No internet access : the ideal place to make a break.

Quite close from Singapore; accessible in 4-5h by successive boats.

My wife and I spent three nights at Telunas in February 2014 and it really is a lovely place. We don't normally (ever) do beach holidays and so this was a bit of a change. I was worried when I arrived that I would be bored but that didn't happen. I soon picked up a book and finished it during my stay. I also took the opportunity to take out one of the kayaks and we managed an hour without sinking. More than anything, it is the staff that make Telunas. They are friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. In fact, they were just perfect. My wife and I are vegetarians and I wondered whether this would be a struggle. I should not have been concerned and cannot fault the way in which we catered for. As a last point, our holiday was consirably cheaper than we had expected as we shared the resort boat with other guests on arrival and departure. That was an added bonus. I'm sure we will be back, perhaps to sample the new Telunas Island setting!

Hi Bryn_PInzgauer,

Thanks for venturing outside your norm and visiting us in February. Our staff enjoys meeting new folks and aiming to providing unforgettable experiences for guests. so, it's incredibly rewarding when we read reviews like this and know we've hit the mark.

As I've mentioned in a preview post, we'll be rolling out a new domestic transfer schedule for arrivals in June forward. This should make the schedule more predictable and lower the average cost to the guest.

We hope to see you again before long.

This place is so good that two separate sets of friends booked and stayed there within 10 days of our return. If you are looking for a luxury spa then this ISN'T it; but if you want to switch off, and hang in a hammock with a book or kayak around the coast or watch the fish swim by - fabulous. Just don't expect to sleep on dry land; your bedroom is on stilts over the sea. Heavenly.
Please note - I rated the "Swimming Pool" as excellent, on account of the 10m diving platform, but the "Pool" is full of fish, has two tides per day and stretches as far as the eye can see...

Hi Jonmkiwi,

Thanks for your review and immediate rave referrals.

You're right, the Telunas experience is not for everyone but there are still plenty of folks who have not had not experienced this overwater resort and beach escape just beyond Singapore.

Now for those who want an unplugged experience but a bit more refinement and pampering, I encourage you to look at our Private Island just 1 km from Telunas Beach. See: http://www.telunasresorts.com/private-island-coming-soon/

Keep telling your friends and we hope you visit again soon!
