Wisma Perkebunan and Wisma Pantai: Sukamade, staying there

There are only two places to stay in Sukamade. The most popular is Wisma Perkebunan Sukamade, run by the plantation. This lies at 5 km from the beach, so if you do not come with a tour or your own transport, you might prefer Wisma Pantai at only 700 m from the beach. The latter is managed by rangers of the PHKA (Directorate General of Forest Protection and Nature Conservation). For seeing the turtles you have to deal with the rangers anyhow.

When we stayed in February 2014 the Wisma Perkebunan charged Rp 115,000 per person in rooms that can accommodate three with own “bak mandi”. There is electricity from a generator only from sundown to 10pm. The lady in charge, mrs Asmawati, served surprisingly good meals for Rp 30,000 (dinner) or Rp 25,000 (breakfast) and undertakes to provide lunch boxes. So forget about info that says to bring your own food. But you may regret not having brought mosquito repellent, and if you plan to hike around the park, a good supply of drinking water is advisable too.

The Wisma Pantai has dirty rooms for Rp 100,000 (twin beds) and somewhat better ones for Rp 200,000 (one double and one single bed). The rangers said they also provide meals, cheaper than at the Wisma Perkebunen, you probably share their cooking for themselves.

Reservation: You can't phone either guesthouse, no telephone line and no mobile coverage. Out of season we did not make a reservation, and there were only a handful of guests. In peak season (July-August) it may be wise to make a reservation through the offices in Jember.
For the Plantation Guesthouse: Jalan Gajah Mada 178, Jember 68133, phone 0331.484711.
For the Rangers' Guesthouse: Jalan Sriwjaya 53, Jember 68121, phone 0331.321530.

Ijen Resto & Guest House: A little beautiful guest house near Ijen Crater

When we travelled to Ijen crater in Banyuwangi, we stayed in Ijen Resto & Guest House as recommended by friends.
The place is located just by side the main road to Ijen mountain, it's very new and not really many people staying there. They have 5 nice and clean bedroom/bungalows, beautiful garden also running hot water which is nice in cool weather! The staff are friendly and helpful.
Very reasonable room rate and breakfast is included.
Highly recommended to you who wants to travel to Ijen Crater to stay in Ijen Resto & Guest House.

Ijen Resto & Guest House is surrounded by coffee and clove plantation and have a beautiful scenery of mountains and rain forest with giant fern leafs nearby. The 5 room bungalows was build with bamboo and coconut wood.

Pinangsari

We only stayed for a night because we were too tired to find another hotel at that time. Not a good motel actually because the rooms aren't in good condition. But I'm glad that the air conditioning ran well and we had fried rice and soup for breakfast.
