I am much impressed from the time I got in touch with Marc and Toby to the time we left. The staff have successfully managed to build a heaven in the remote extremities of Bintan, in spite of all the challenges of nature and external events that are out of their control. We particularly liked the quaint privacy we got... More

Pros - friendly manager Marc who will guide and help you with your questions and stay reservations - very nice beach - shallow, clean and clear - nice layout giving you a feel of peace and serenity away from local crowds also -...

I've been here twice in 2 years and would go again if/when I visit Bintan! The first time I went we came across this by accident - We were looking for another resort which happened to be abandoned and we agreed to check out Mutiara on recommendation from the cab driver! The second time, I knew there's only one place... More

I was in Singapore for a week when I was overcome by the desire to escape the concrete jungle and the citylights to spend a weekend in the peace and calm of reclusive beach side guesthouse. Luckily I found Mutiara beach guesthouse - it not only fulfilled all my criteria: 1/ Reachable within 2 hours by ferry + taxi, 2/... More

We went to Mutiara during monsson season and was disappointed the first time I went to the beach (I wandered off a bit away from the resort's beach club). Lots of trash and sand flies literally eating you alive, and there goes the nasty tar too (they provide baby oil which is very effective in tar removal). I understand the... More

If you are looking for a close-to-nature, traditional kampung style experience, this is it. All you need is a good book, sun block, insect repellent and a bikini. Marc was quick to provide the reservation confirmation despite the fact that I only booked a day or two in advance. I had an amazing time doing next to nothing. The food... More

We stayed at Mutiara Guesthouse, in the "Pondok Plus" Pavilion for 5D/4N, over the 2015 New Year. The resort is rustic, very clean, charming, and very chill. The staffs are wonderful. We felt very well taken care of. Explore the grounds and indulge in an amazing massage at the river spa. Eco-friendly and sustainable living. Will be back!

Very nice peaceful oasis in the midst of nature.. Don't expect 5-star-hotel services because this place is built ecologically with respect to natural conditions.. instead of 5 stars it has billions of stars more - the stars you see when you lie on hammock and look at the night sky in complete harmony with nature! The service is excellent, everyone... More
