Telunas Private Island: Rustic Beach Resort in Indonesia Adds Luxury Expansion; Romantic Sunsets Remain. Remember Telunas?

Telunas Private Island: Rustic Beach Resort in Indonesia Adds Luxury Expansion; Romantic Sunsets Remain

Yes, the wonderfully rustic Indonesian resort on stilts over the sea, where you can escape to for total relaxation and just reconnect with nature, tranquility and bliss. I blogged about them in 2011 here: They have done well, and now there's more. They have just expanded to the island across the original resort. Telunas Private Island has 15 sea villas with touches of luxury, spa massage services and even a freshwater pool. But the best amenities here, as they aptly described on their website, are the ones they didn't create - the stunning sunsets and sunrises.

The sunsets here are so beautiful, I don't even need to edit the photos. This is what the resort looks like - a single row of sea villas on the left, the private beach, sea activities hut, pool and the Grand Lodge on the right. It is a bit of a journey from Singapore to Telunas - about three hours in total by sea. That's not all that awaits you - we love those signature welcome drinks.

There is a rainshower! A PRIVATE ISLAND YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE THAT IS JUST NEAR SINGAPORE - Daily Jambo. Exploring the Forgotten Keppel Hill Reservoir. Keppel Hill, off Telok Blangah Road, has become a new place of exploration in Singapore ever since the newspapers published the rediscovery of an abandoned reservoir by the National Heritage Board.

Exploring the Forgotten Keppel Hill Reservoir

The forgotten reservoir, reported to be dated as early as 1905, had appeared in the early maps. But by the fifties, it had vanished from the maps and its location was not officially marked for sixty years. The 2m-deep reservoir is not easily visible although it is located at a short distance away from Keppel Hill Road. Nature has reclaimed it over the decades, as the overgrown vegetation shields it from public attention.

The stagnant pool of water is also filled with dry leaves and twigs. Remnants of the reservoir still exist today, such as concrete steps, an old diving board and a bathing area. Prior to the fifties, the reservoir was marked as a private property and, later, a swimming pool. Published: 11 October 2014 Updated: 11 November 2014 Like this: Like Loading...
