Bintan Lagoon Resort in Indonesia

Few weeks ago, I went back to Indonesia with some friends to have a first glimpse of summer! We stayed at Bintan Lagoon Resort, the biggest and most luxurious resort in Bintan Island Indonesia. When we got there, we were fascinated with the 470 deluxe rooms, suites and villas facing the ocean. Each room offers contemporary tropical elegance enhanced by distinctive and colorful Asian decoration. The spacious room also features a furnished balcony with in-room amenities. Most of the hotel rooms have been recently renovated to rebuild its brand showcasing a more refreshing unit. Any traveler, young professionals or foreigners from all over the world will love its modern look with still a touch of Indonesian accent. Every room has a flat screen television and a wide range of upto-date Indonesian designed teak furniture. The bathrooms are in light marbled tones, displaying Bravat designed bathtubs with an impressive full-length floor-to-ceiling mirror.

Exploring Bintan Lagoon’s Pasir Panjang is a must! It is a long stretched of white beach where you can make a splash with more than 30 water sports like jet skiing, kayaking, banana boat and snorkeling.

If coming from Singapore, You should be able to breeze through the checkpoint smoothly if your International Passport has more than 6 months validity from the date of arrival and you present a return ticket to your respective country. No Visa required for Filipinos, Malaysians, Singaporeans, Thai and other Southeast Asian and South American Nationalities.

Take the Mozaic Ferry Lines from the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in Singapore. It sails the waters of the majestic South China Sea, bringing you directly to the doorstep of the exclusive, Bintan Lagoon Resort Ferry Terminal in Bintan, Indonesia. The ride takes only 75 minutes. You disembark on the pristine, golden sand beach of Pasir Panjang and cross the iconic Bintan bridge to enter to the Bintan Lagoon Resort through a modern and private international ferry terminal. Fare is around P1,200 one way or $28.

The ferry departs the earliest from Singapore at 8am with a 1 hour checking in requirement. It leaves Indonesia at 10 am the earliest. Here are some photos I got from a Google Search about Bintan Lagoon Resort Indonesia.
