Rosa’s Ecolodge is located next to
the Baluran National Park in the traditional Madura
village of Sumberwaru (often called Karangtekok) in
the Situbondo Regency, East Java (see under
TRANSPORTATION). The area, with the Baluran mountain
as a back-drop, has a nice and romantic atmosphere
with rice paddies, clusters of waving bamboo,
coconut trees, cows and goats. Traditional cow carts
move slowly through the landscape.
was built in 2001. It has a main building with
reception and restaurant, and several comfortable
and very clean bungalows built in Madura style,
complete with air conditioning, spring beds, western
style toilets, and hot water. Between 2010 And 2013
the owner Rosa Tambayong had to focus her attention
to the deteriorating health condition of her husband
Rene Tambayong. During these years she could not be
available at the Ecolodge. Since the beginning of
2014 Mrs. Rosa Tambayong is back and has begun to
revitalize and improve the Ecolodge.
At the moment there are six bungalows / rooms
available, all newly renovated. They all have a
private veranda facing a colorful garden. The style
and atmosphere of Rosa’s Ecolodge is traditional and
reminds of past times. This style is in Indonesia
called “Tempo Doeloe”.
The restaurant has been improved with a more
eco-friendly menu. We try to avoid factory produced
food stuff and try to use as much locally produced
raw materials as we can, and as far as possible
organically farmed. We serve both local and
international cuisine and have made a special effort
on the breakfast. We consider all our guests
Rosa's Ecolodge also has a small hideaway in the
rice fields. Here we often spend lazy afternoons
drinking tea and rest tired legs after excursions in
the national park.
As the most important activities of Rosa’s Ecolodge
are tours and safaris, and the numbers of rooms
still are limited, we have to give priority to
guests joining any of our tours.
Breakfast is included in room price. Set lunch
and dinner buffet are always available for our
guests. Internet access, bicycles, and snorkeling
equipment are available.
