Java Turtle Lodge is fantastic! This is the place to stay in Meru Betiri to explore pristine nature!”

Java Turtle Lodge is fantastic! This is the place to stay in Meru Betiri. Pak Poer and his wife are incredibly friendly and helpful. They care deeply for nature and the community. This made me feel right at home. Pak Poer knows the whole area and can help with everything — from boat trips to private beaches, excursions to Sukamade beach to spot turtles, but also a 2-day trek through the heart of the park (recommended for the fanatics). I even saw a turtle on the beach at night, which was an unforgettable experience. Last-minute requests are no problem at all. The nearby beaches and national park are extraordinary beautiful. The accommodation is super neat and within walking distance of several beaches. The meals are delicious and healthy. Hope I can go here again soon! Matur suwun Java Turtle Lodge!
Honestly, I can't think of anything that wasn't good. Everything was great!

Wonderful”

Excellent location for viewing Meru Betiri, turtle watching overnight, keep ride, River crossing and beach nearby all a great family experience. Think about staying 3+ days to make the commute worth your while. Hiking, beach, visit the fishermen village, etc all good fun!
Transport back and forth from Surabaya is quiet long. Think about using combination train/car visiting Bromo.

Felt like a home away from home :)”

Hadi and his wife are very welcoming and friendly. They want you to be as happy as possible on your stay. Home cooked Indonesian meals every day, with fresh fish from the fishermen nearby. Absolutely delicious. Such a great location, peace and quiet, nearby the beach. Far away from mass tourism. We loved it.
Nothing much. Unfortunately we experienced some heavy rain fall, but Hadi came up with good alternatives like sightseeing in the area with a scooter.

Perfect place to relax”

We didn't have to take care of anything. Hadi and his wife were exceptionel hosts. They served us delicious breakfast, lunch and diner and it was a lot of food (not like the small meals you get in a warung). We spent our 4 days with hanging out in the beautiful garden, walking along the endless beach or doing yoga on the terrace. Hadi also took us to the jungle and the turtle beach, which was a unique experience. We learned so much about the wild animals, the life in the villages and of course about the turtle saving project. On top of that, he took us to Green Beach, which was amazing and we were the only people there.

Hadi (the owner) and his team arranged us unforgetable Java experience. Me and my girlfriend were for 24 hours in the hands of energetic female indonesian guide who showed us the beauty of green bay and mainly the Sukamade beach where green turtles bring to life new baby turtles whom we had a chance to see as they were heading towards their own life journey. We were also provided with food and drink whenever needed and to Sukamade beach you are taken by Jeep from the roof of which you can watch the monkeys jumping above your heads in the trees.

Unforgettable experience in Java's most beautiful area”

We came to Java Turtle Lodge with our 2 teenage kids to enjoy one of the last nature refuges in bustling Java. What we found was not only jungle, dream beaches and interesting flora and fauna, but most of all we found the kindest people on our entire trip. Hadi the owner and his wife built this lodge with love and passion, and they run it with such empathy one can only admire. We really felt like being welcomed as part of their family. Hadi helped in organizing anything we needed - of course the must-see activities like boat trip to Green Bay, Sukamade Beach tour to watch and release turtles (one of the best experiences I ever had, also thanks to our Guide Oni she really made our day:) ), but also he took us to the dragonfruit plantation which were in blossom during that night (this is only once a year we were lucky :) ), and he took us to the fisherman village to a volleyball match of the locals where our kids could join in. Hadi also organized our transport from Mt. Bromo and to Mt. Ijen with very reliable drivers and cars. We loved the place so much and regretted we could only stay 3 nights. I recommend to stay at least 3 nights (more is better if you have enough time) - there is so much to do there. The Green Bay beach is one of the best beaches in Indonesia, better than any beach we have seen on Bali later on our trip. And you are almost alone there, unbelievably being in Java. Also the Rajegwesi beach which is just behind the lodge is beautiful and wild, you can walk there for 2 km, and most of the time you will be the only traveller, watching the fisherman. The Java Turtle lodge is lovely, peaceful, calm and clean, it is almost like in paradise. And the food... wow... we really enjoyed it. Writing this I recall every moment we spent there, thank you Hadi for everything, and good luck to you and your family. I really hope one day we will return and meet again... big hug from me and the family, Lutz

Heartwarming hosts and great for beach lovers”

Our stay there was amazing. We were welcomed well, Hadi and his family really took such good care of us, even though they had a family emergency. The place is so close to the beach, and even though it's not easy to get to the village from Banyuwangi, it's worth the travel. Also great homecooked food and super cute cats and chicken in the gardens. Everything was clean and orderly, there was even hot water for the shower.
Nothing .. it was our best stay in Indonesia, we only regret not being able to go on the jungle tour due to time constraints. If you come here, book a day extra for some nice activities, this will be worth it

A little paradise, with wonderful people.”

I stayed 2 nights at the Java Turtle Lodge, and I wish I had stayed longer. The place is amazing, the national park is beautiful and full of beautiful places. The fauna to discover is also very good. The hotel rooms were perfect, comfortable, quiet, with a very nice outdoor bathroom. Everything was available on site, and the restaurant was excellent. Due to a serious family problem, Hadi could not be present during my entire stay, but he still wanted to come and spend some time with me and the other guests, from our arrival to our departure. Thank you for that and for keeping a smile despite the circumstances, I am delighted to have been able to meet you and spend some time with you. In his absence, Oni took over and took wonderful care of us. Thanks to Oni for her smile, her permanent good mood, and her sharing of the love she has for this region and her country. Certainly one of the most beautiful human encounters of my trip to Indonesia. I therefore recommend 1000% to come and spend a few days at the Java Turtle Lodge, magnificent landscapes and a superb human experience guaranteed. 😊 I will be back with great pleasure. See you soon, and thank you again for everything. Guillaume, the guy who was traveling with the big motorcycle. 😜
Nothing, everything was great.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the wildlife !”

We spent 3 nights at Java Turtle Lodge with our two boys and very much enjoyed our stay. We chose this accomodation because of its excellent rating and its very close proximity to beaches and Meru Betiri National Park. Hadi and his wife Nouroul, the homestay owners are genuine and very kind people. They did everything and beyond to meet all our expectations. Hadi arranged a taxi to collect us from Ketapang harbour, took us to the local fishermen village and beach Rajegwesi (5 min walk - stunning !) when we arrived, Green Bay Beach the next day and Sukamade village to release the baby turtles to the sea early in the morning the following day. An amazing experience ! The boys loved the breakfast by the river and crossing the river onto the roof of the Jeep. The accomodation is very functionnal (very comfy beds, lovely bathroom and nice terrace) and peaceful (next to plantations in the middle of the jungle). Nouroul's cooking was delicious and freshly made with local products (fish, fried bananas, papaya, dragonfruits, pineapple, coconuts...). We highly recommend Java Turtle Lodge for 2-3 nights minimum to make the most of your time in this beautiful part of Java and enjoy a unique experience. Thanks again to Hadi and Nouroul for having us ! Will be back sometimes :)

A fabulous location with welcoming hosts!”

If you are traveling in East Java, do not miss the opportunity to go to Sukamade Beach to see turtles! Java Turtle Lodge is the only place to stay near the entrance to Meru Betiri National Park - and it is an excellent option. Hadi and Nuru, the owners and managers of Java Turtle Lodge, are lovely people who want their guests to have the best experience possible. The four rooms currently available are in one large building, some with their own (gorgeous) bathroom. Rooms have air conditioning and comfy beds. Two very nice bungalows are currently under construction. Nuru serves delicious Indonesia food that is varied and well-prepared. Breakfast is a choice of nasi goreng or mie goreng, tea/coffee/juice, and fruit upon request, though a highlight of any stay is the chance to try the dishes she prepares for dinner. Be sure to try the locally grown dragon fruit if it is in season - delicious! A highlight of a stay here is the very close proximity to Rajegwesi Beach. The beach is absolutely stunning and because of its remote location, there are very few people around. At night, you can hear the waves crashing in the distance as you drift off to sleep.
Bicycles are currently not available, but this would be a lovely place to explore on a bike. Hopefully this will be an option for guests in the future.

The Java turtle is a beautiful and comfortable accommodation, the place is quiet and nice the room is quite big and it has the best shower we have had at the moment in our trip. The food is delicious and the coffee that is made for the owners is very good but without any doubt the best thing in this accommodation is the family who own and run it, they are very nice and gentle and they helped us with everything we needed, they make you feel at home but respecting your privacy at the same time. Thank you Hadi and family for such a wonderful time. We really recommend the Java turtle to everybody.
