The island is beautiful inside out - no night entertainment, just you and the Mother nature. With clear blue skies during the day and stars visible to naked eyes at night, the island is perfect for those who seek to find solace and tranquility. If you seek to volunteer on an island like this one, you are on the right page :]
We just opened the place on April 2018 and there's much for us to learn from our guests and volunteers who come and join us here. You can expect a more family-like environment, but of course there are rooms for improvement. Volunteers will be able to enjoy the island for free: We will provide transportation from Mersing jetty to the island, shared dorm accommodation with 3 meals a day. Wait no more, contact us now
It was a great moment being at Bayu Lestari. Ibu and other staffs were very welcoming and nice. I can say everything is good from the accommodation, food, tasks, daily activities and others. Would love to come again to Bayu Lestari in the future <3. And also, it is an island, there are no convenience store, so get ready with some food stocks like chocolates or anything. When you are done with your tasks, you can go to their jetty for fresh air. The environment was very calming and serene.

We were very well welcomed by the owner and the staff. We worked on photos and videos so our working hours were flexible due to our ideas and vision. We shared a dorm with other volunteers. Everyday meals were local cuisine so we could try original malay dishes. We had a lot of free time and we also could experience attractions like island hopping and trekking. We really enjoyed our stay and we recommend it to everyone who wants to experience island life in malay style.

Un paraíso. Cuando llegamos no nos lo podíamos creer. La gente es realmente acogedora.. Fuimos para ayudar con el marketing y acabamos cocinando y ayudando con el menú (además de hacer fotos y vídeos) porque nos trataron tan bien, nos llevaron a tantos sitios y actividades, nos dieron tan buena comida y nos dieron tanta libertad (sin contar horas de trabajo ni estresar con resultados) que queríamos hacer todo lo posible por ayudar a que siguieran avanzando en su proyecto. Nos quedamos más tiempo del planeado... no queríamos irnos! Os lo recomiendo, con todo mi corazón!!

Bayu Lestari, was a memorable experience for me. The serene atmosphere coupled with the team who treats you like your own family, has made it an eye-opening working getaway. You are allowed to work at your own pace with little discretion. Though I was appointed to refresh their website, the welcoming feeling has made me try to do anything I could to make things better for them. I recommend anyone who's coming here to bring a decent amount of choclates as there isn't a convenient store on the island. My extended gratitude to Ibu Rose and Ben for allowing me to etch this unforgettable memory.
