The resort is really nice and we have just been laying by the pool and trying desperatley to get a tan - although I don't fancy my chances!
It is a really quiet resort as it is out of season and sometimes it feels like we are the only people here!
We are off to Telunas beach tomorrow which is a remote island off Batam and I am looking forward to doing more laying by a pool/beach and eating and drinking!
We got a private boat to Telunas which was a very small long tail boat and it took us around an hour and a half to get there
We spend the next few days on the beach and in hammocks! We did ventrure intothe jungle to get to the rope walks but it was so hot, after 15 minutes of walking I was dead! I really am so unfit and should never do any type of exercise in that heat!
We did some night fishing of the jetty but that was unsuccessful and I got myself into a real mess with the line etc. etc. so I gave that up! But was just amazing sitting there - everything was so black! There are also hardly any stars which really surprised me.
On our last night there they did us a bonfire on the beach and we roasted marshmellows. It was so lovely and they lit up the whole beach. I really enjoyed Telunas, although 3 days was definitely enough as there wasn't a great deal to do there, but the place itself was just amazing!
