10 Reasons Why You Need to Holiday at Bintan Island… Now!

bintan.jpg

With white sand beaches, rocky cliffs, crystal clear waters and dense jungles, we think Bintan Island is Asia’s best-kept secret. Whether on a family holiday or on a romantic getaway, there are countless reasons why now is the time to head to this island paradise off the coast of Singapore. Here are 10 of them.

#1: You will be visiting a Pirate's Island

With its strategic location, Bintan Island was once a central trading post between China and India, and from the 12th century onwards, the island became home to Malay smugglers and buccaneers who looted passing ships. At that time, Bintan Island was then known as Pirate's Island.

While these days, Bintan is much more peaceful, the island’s cliffs and jungles make it easy to imagine the rugged landscape that made it the perfect settlement for pirates and traders.

#2: The island is home to Asia’s best golf course

If you’ve heard of Bintan Island, it’s most likely in a sentence that mentions the Ria Bintan Golf Course*. Just 5 minutes from Club Med Bintan Island, courses in Ria Bintan make the most of the island’s beautiful native jungle and incredible coastlines. Golf enthusiasts, paradise is right there!

#3: It’s just a ferry ride away from Singapore

Although technically part of Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago, Bintan Island is most accessible from Singapore. Hop on a ferry at Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, and in less than an hour you’ll be on Bintan Island – plus, Bintan is one hour behind Singapore, so it’s like you haven’t lost any time at all on the journey!

#4: Club Med Bintan Island is being redesigned…

…and it’s well worth a visit. From the 27th of November 2016, the resort will re-open with a new design inspired by the island’s culture and nature, a bar and lounge that flows outdoors, and a newly redesigned pool.

#5: Find bliss and balance with wellness activities

Surrounded by beautiful stretches of beach and jungles, there’s no better place to relax, rejuvenate, and restore your body and mind than on a holiday to Bintan Island. Escape the daily grind with yoga by the sea, pilates, and the incredible Spa by Amsara*, perched on the clifftops.

#6: There’s no better time for a twilight catch

Bintan Island has enjoyed a relatively low profile in recent years, making it the perfect spot for an island getaway where you truly feel like the place is yours. However, now’s the best time to go – in the coming years, the Indonesian government is developing chartered.
