Kids More-Than Welcome

Telunas Resorts loves kids and you will feel it from the moment you arrive. After disembarking from the resort’s private boat and receiving a friendly welcome at the jetty, you will be escorted to the restaurant for a leisurely lunch. There’s deliberately no formal check-in, in keeping with the laid-back vibe of the resort. And with up to 40 guests on the Private Island at one time, it’s never, ever crowded.

Yummy Eats

Meals are served in the enormous open-air restaurant at Telunas Private Island and the daily menu is written on simple blackboards.

Kids Menu.The kids’ menu is packed with healthy choices like pasta, and grilled chicken with coleslaw. A selection of fruit and snacks is available between meals.

Enjoy the honesty bar, where guests can purchase sodas for the kids or a beer for mom and dad – or bring your own alcohol (there’s no corkage fee). The Sand Bar serves drinks and snacks; where adults can savor a couple of well-earned margaritas by the pool while the kids enjoy hermit crab races on the beach at sunset.

Kids Club

Hours of Fun. The resort’s complimentary Kampung Kids Club at Telunas Private Island offers younger children enough distractions to keep them having a blast for several hours every day: fishing, local crafts such as weaving, and evening movies are offered under the watchful gaze of the friendly staff. Older kids and adults can enjoy other complimentary activities: a low ropes course at the neighboring resort, river kayaking through the mangroves, a village tour, a cooking demonstration, standup paddle boarding, windsurfing and kayaking. If that all sounds too energetic, just curl up with a book.

While your children are at the Kids Club.  Book a massage (around $50 for one hour) in the over-water spa. It’s a heavenly spot to settle for an afternoon, especially when you know the children are taken care of.

Ages: 5 and12 years old*

Hours: Kids Club is offered daily from 9am to 11:30am and 2:30pm until 5pm.

*If kids are under 5 years old, acceptance depends on the number of children in the Kids Club that day and the number of staff on duty.

The Perfect Getaway for the Entire Family

Telunas is the perfect escape from the day-to-day city grind. Families benefit from their stay in different ways. The simple experience of fishing with a hand-line or jumping countless times off the jetty creates memories that will last a lifetime. And without Wi-Fi, you’ll relax and have lots more conversation and connection – things that are often impossible in the busy lives we lead.
