Published on Feb 18, 2019

A breezy catamaran ride from the Lion City lies the incredible integrated tropical beach escape known as Bintan Resorts. With world-class entertainment options, luxury accommodations, and stunning scenery, there’s something for everyone here. Whether you’re visiting with the whole family or just one special someone, here are a few things not to be missed.

Splash Around

With its pristine white sands and clear waters, the 3.5-kilometer Lagoi Beach at Bintan Resorts is understandably popular. Guests can relax and soak in the sunshine and panoramic views of the South China Sea, or engage in water sports such as kayaking, jet-skiing and snorkeling. For even more aquatic activities, visit the sprawling Chill Cove @ Treasure Bay Bintan, a 90-hectare recreational hub with plenty of fun for the whole family. From a 7.5-meter Slip & Slide to a cable ski, all sorts of thrills await here.

Become One with Nature

Embark on an epic Mangrove Discover Tour along the Sebung River and discover all sorts of aquatic fauna and flora that inhabit this complex, fragile ecosystem. For even more of an adventure, try the nighttime option to spy on fireflies and nocturnal critters. Meanwhile, the athletically inclined should summit the majestic Gunung Bintan. Standing 340 meters tall, the mighty rainforest-draped peak makes for an invigorating two to four hour trek.

Take in the Local Culture

Learn about the Malay Kingdom’s illustrious past when you take the 10-minute journey to Pulau Penyengat. This 2 kilometer-long island contains distinctive yellow and green ruins of a mosque from the 1800s, as well as the crumbling remnants of a historic palace. Next, follow the trail of the sea gypsies, or Orang Laut, the local nomadic fishermen and women, and watch traditional crafts and fish crackers being made. At the Grotto Santa Maria, follow a trail that recreates the Stations of the Cross to an idyllic Christian chapel. Finally, explore some of the oldest pilgrimage sites on Bintan Island at Senggarang Village, the first settlement for Chinese immigrants centuries ago.
