Telunas Private Island

Guest Review: Rustic Luxury at Telunas Resorts Private Island

This eco-friendly resort offers rest and relaxation to single, couple, or family travellers alike. The resort is nestled on the edge of its very own island a short hour and a half longboat ride from Batam, Indonesia. The pristine beaches and infinity pool are perfect to catch up on reading, sunbathing, or chatting with family or friends.

Each over the water villa is truly a delight. They’re spacious and comfortable and decorated beautifully. Since they are over the water there is no need for air-conditioning. There is a strong, cool, continuous cross breeze and in the evening the need for a duvet.

Each villa has a large sitting area, loft that sleeps additional people, a large master bedroom with a balcony, and a modern bathroom with a rainwater showerhead. A water cooler with hot/cold water is provided in each room along with beach towels and daily cleaning and turndown service.

Falling asleep to the lull of the ocean and waking up to views of tropical sunrises 10 feet from your bed is glorious on this one of a kind resort.

The single restaurant is an open aired, large area just off reception and has a very tropical island feel. It’s not uncommon for guests to join each other for meals as the atmosphere begs friendliness. Executive Chef Surya Kusuma, who happily strolls from table to table during each meal making sure each guest is satisfied with his or her food, lovingly prepares the daily menus.

The concept for meals on the island is unique. A chalkboard is set up providing a wide range of choices for breakfast and dinner. For lunch a local dish is the only choice but never disappointing. If guests have special culinary requirements, the chef will happily prepare their food accordingly with proper notice.

To break up a day of relaxation (if you can imagine wanting to do that) the resort offers activities like jungle hikes or tours of nearby islands and fishing villages. Each morning a list of daily activities can be found near the reception desk and the staff happily makes all arrangements. The beauty of these activities is that they are all free of charge so there is no excuse not to take advantage of the opportunity to explore.

Other activities include a cooking class in which the chef demonstrates how to cook traditional Indonesian dishes. At the end of the class each participant gets to eat the fruit of their labors.

The resort also offers in room spa services. There are several traditional massages to choose from but it is highly recommended to try the Telunas Signature Spa. It’s a unique treatment given by expert, local masseurs and with the lapping water and cool breezes off the ocean just outside your room it’s that much more relaxing.
