Meal Upon Arrival

Lunch or dinner will be served upon your arrival at the resort depending upon your arrival time.

 

No WIFI 

Telunas intentionally does not offer WIFI at either resort. There are no televisions in the rooms. One of our unique distinctives is providing our Guests with a refuge from the hectic, incessant, over-plugged-in cadence of modern life today. If Guests must be connected you can purchase  local SIM card at the Ferry Terminal or use a personal internet plan with data.

 

How to Avoid Mosquitoes and Other Pests

Because our facilities are over the water, we rarely have problems with sand flies, gnats, and mosquitos. However, we do encourage Guests to bring bug repellant. Guests use mosquito repellant, baby oil or sand fly repellent. Sand flies ( sand gnats) are nearly impossible to see and bites are not normally felt until they swell and become irritated. While not everyone reacts to these bites, they often appear overnight or after you return home and resemble bed bug bites. If you forget your repellant, ask one of our staff. We can provide this for you.

 

What to Bring

Please bring your face masks. Our team will provide one bottle of hand sanitizer  for each Guest. Feel free to bring antibacterial wipes for your travels. Sunscreen and hats are a must. We are close to the equator so the sun is strong.  Packing can be light. Dress is very casual.

 

Luggage and Porters

When you arrive at the ferry terminal in Batam the Telunas staff will be ready to help handle your luggage. Please do not hire porters.
