It is very easy to reach Rosa's Ecolodge. We are located
a few hundred meters off the main road between Bali,
Yogyakarta, and Surabaya.
By own vehicle: When coming from
Yogyakarta, Surabaya or Bromo, pass through the town
of Situbondo and look out for the village
Sumberwaru. It is the last village before Baluran
National Park. Here the road makes a sharp turn to
the right and enters a teakwood forest. In this bend
is a village road to the left (north). Follow this
road a couple of hundred meters and you have
When coming from the Ferry from Bali or from
Banyuwangi the road follows the coast, passes
outside the main gates to Baluran National Park and
continues through a teakwood forest. When you come
out of the forest the road turns sharply to the
left. After this bend make a U-turn and take the
village road to the north and the coast.
By public bus: When coming from any place
in Java, for example Surabaya, Yogyakarta, and Bali,
get off the bus in Sumberwaru. Tell the bus driver
to let you off at the Marine Training Centre
(Puslatpur Marinir). It is easy to recognize the
place, as it has two cannons in front. About 400 m
east the road makes a sharp bend to the right and
enters a teak forest. Coming from the west, the
small town Asembagus is 12 km before Sumberwaru.
Coming from the south, Sumberwaro is the first
village after the teak forest.
From the main road to Rosa’s Ecolodge it is 400m.
Either walk, take a becak (pedicab), a horse cart,
or a motorcycle taxi. Maybe even a cow cart! You
will for sure not get lost. Rosa's Ecolodge has a
small sign board at the main road.
