Whether you fancy a private island getaway or a fuss-free family vacation, an unforgettable experience awaits you at this island resort.
The best (and some say the worst) part about planning your next holiday? Knowing you’ll be spoilt for choice by the sheer variety of options out there.
At Telunas Resorts, they’ve whittled it down to two distinctive experiences that are bound to delight well-heeled and savvy travelers, no matter their budget.
Considered one of the grand dames when it comes to island resorts in Indonesia, Telunas has been around for 13 years and counting, setting itself apart as one of the region’s finest escapes.
For top-notch luxury: Telunas Private Island
When it comes to surprising a loved one—say, a proposal, or an unforgettable getaway just because you deserve it, only the very best will suffice.
Here’s where Telunas Private Island fits right in. The latest addition to the Telunas Resorts properties debuted in 2014 with 15 overwater sea villas built using ethically sourced materials, including roofing from sagu leaves that were picked only once they had naturally fallen to the ground.
Guests enter their own sea villa from the wooden jetty to a sitting room, where tall glass windows allow natural sunlight and island breezes to filter inside. Upstairs, a children’s loft sleeps two or three, and downstairs a king-size bed offers views of the broad blue ocean and only a distant tropical island.
While the 90-square-meter private sea villa makes a cozy abode to luxuriate in all day, there’s plenty to do outside. There’s an open-air two-story Grand Lodge, where Western, Asian, and local Indonesian meals are made-to-order by Chef Surya. If a tipple is in order, make a beeline for the new outdoor Sand Bar, where guests can enjoy anything from martinis, to a glass of long island iced tea.
If you’re in the mood for some pampering, massages can be arranged on the deck of one’s own private sea villa or at the newly built Telunas Spa. Other complimentary activities include exploring the ocean on a sea kayak, standup paddling, hiking in the jungle, kayaking through the mangrove, and more.
Those traveling without kids can also enjoy each month’s “Only Adults” days (when only adults are allowed to stay on the island). On the other hand, parents with little ones can enjoy the services of a child care area staffed by trained college graduates who lead kids’ activities during certain prearranged hours of each day .
For fuss-free relaxation: Telunas Beach Resort
For an unforgettable holiday that won’t break the bank, book a stay at Telunas Beach Resort, the brand’s original and flagship property. Open since 2004, the resort refreshes its offerings yearly, ensuring that guests enjoy a quality experience each time.
Here, three types of rooms are available, with the difference between the beach chalets and deluxe rooms being that each beach chalet is its own stand-alone building and has its own outdoor patio/sitting area, while each deluxe is built next to another deluxe and does not have its own private outdoor patio/sitting area.
Each of the eight beach chalets with balconies, two chalets without balconies and four deluxe rooms at Telunas Beach Resort are fitted with a queen-sized bed, an additional bunk bed, a desk, a dresser, as well as a private bathroom.
That said, all rooms are built on stilts over water for an authentic “kampung” experience. In line with the laid back and communal vibes of the location, all meals are served buffet style—with a rotating 10-day menu to boot. While it’s less upscale compared to its sister property Telunas Private Island, the beach resort is a stone’s throw away from white sand beaches and fun activities including beach volleyball, sand badminton, a soccer field, low ropes course, tetherball, and ping pong.
Guests can also rent equipment such as sea kayaks and enjoy activities like local pottery making to enliven their stay. Those game enough can also head to the 10-meter-high deck jump for a splash into the cooling waters.
Located just 50 kilometers south of Singapore, Telunas Resorts let one experience nature at its best, while spending quality time with the people who matter the most.
