Paradise found in Bintan
Taking full advantage of a white sand bay and tropical rainforest setting, Banyan Tree Bintan’s luxury private villas hug the coastline of this northern Indonesian island in the South China Sea. Staying here can be a relaxing escape from everyday life with spa treatments, signature dining experiences and plenty of beach or pool time.
In the lap of luxury
Swimming is a choice between the resort’s rock-edged infinity pool, which hovers over the coastline and matches the deep blue of the sea; the beachside pool with enviable views from the sun lounges; or a dip in the ocean at the secluded beach. Your stay could also be filled with water sports, golf on the 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course, snorkelling, biking, walking tours around the grounds and conservation activities that help save endangered turtle colonies.
Switch off from reality
Decorated in traditional Balinese style, the oversized villas include a private balcony with outdoor relaxation Jacuzzi and a king-sized teak four-poster canopied bed. The rooms contain a wish list of extras – from well-stocked amenity kits and bathrobes to beach towels and bags. High-speed Internet and a TV makes keeping up with the outside world easy if you must.
Stay glued to the sunlounger for lunch
The resort offers a variety of dining options from relaxed Indonesian-style eating among the trees at Treetops, modern Mediterranean at The Cove or Thai fusion at Saffron. Guests also can choose to eat in their villas with delivered dishes or a do-it-yourself barbecue.
Diverse dining options
There are also signature dining options that are perfect for a holiday highlight or to mark a special event. Banyan Tree is well known for its spa excellence and Bintan offers all this plus amazing views, which enhance the experience. Travellers find a few days spent relaxing on tropical Bintan Island the perfect match to exploring Singapore, which is just a 45-minute ferry trip away.
