An easy 3 hour ferry and long boat ride from Singapore, Telunas Resorts is a quiet, exclusive and eco friendly hidden gem. The perfect getaway to escape the hustle and bustle, their peaceful, thatched chalets are built over the sea off the Riau Islands. Natural, cooling breezes over the water will lull you to sleep as gentle waves ripple beneath your rooms.
Chalets are clean, roomy and have all the necessities including hot water and plenty of fans. Family rooms have bunks and balconies offering unspoiled views of pristine jungle, private white sandy beach and open water.
This is a resort destination flavoured by local culture and natural environment. For families, it can be an activity filled stay or for couples, a romantic and private escape. Relax in a chalet balcony hammock or beach bed, go fishing or kayaking or take an island jungle walk. Without wifi or technology, children can immerse themselves outdoors with opportunity to go crab hunting, play beach soccer and volleyball, deck jump, hike to the jungle ropes course and relax after dinner around the campfire toasting marshmallows. There are also plenty of boardgames and activities offered in the common lounge attached to the dining room which overlaps the water in an open chalet.
Telunas Resorts offers two properties literally five minutes apart with each island offering a different kind of accomodation. Telunas Private Island was created especially for couples and families. The Private Island has over water rooms with exclusivity to all amenities on the island. Have a personalised massage treatment or enjoy the infinity pool. You can also use the facilities at Telunas Beach Resort with complementary boat access twice a day to the other island.
Telunas Beach Resort is designed for families and is also enjoyed by couples and groups. It’s a simple escape which has an overwater community feel but the same high service standards that Telunas Resorts is known for. It is group optimised with meeting rooms and custom activities for larger groups. The white, sandy beach can be enjoyed by all.
Dining offers differ between the two island with buffet style available at the Beach Resort and fresh selections from their menu at the Private Island.
Visitors to Telunas say:
“Telunas Private Island is the perfect antidote to a busy life in Singapore. The staff, accommodation and food are wonderful! Whether you are looking to wonder around the island, swim, kayak or pier jump in the sea with the kids. Relax next to the beach or sip frozen margarita by the infinity pool. With just 16 chalets and no wifi, paradise is just a boat ride away!”
