Meal Upon Arrival

Lunch will be served upon your arrival at the resort.

 

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 a local SIM card (Telkomsel) at the Ferry Terminal or use a personal internet plan with data. Please note that due to the remote location of Telunas Resorts, the signal strength may be intermittent and unreliable.

 

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. 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

IDR 10,000 tip for (checked-in) luggage porters when entering Indonesia. If you check-in luggage with BatamFast, please be prepared to pay this tip to the Indonesian terminal staff.

Alternatively, you could carry-on your own luggage if it is size appropriate (i.e., slightly looser than airplane carry-on standards).
