“Ahhhhh bliss...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2009

A nice weekend getaway from populated Singapore. Putri Pandan is charming, peaceful and a great change to the other big resorts in Bintan.
You get your own spacious beach hut, located right smack on a white soft sandy beach facing the open sea. Avoid the sandflies season....they're nasty buggers!
Room and bathroom are comfy and clean. Just don't expect much. But watch out for leaky roof, bed got wet during a heavy downpour. The staffs were nice to mop and dry the room for us.
For meals, better to pay by Indo Rupiahs. Yummy grilled fish!
Let's just hope that someday this place won't be filled with weekend family holidaymakers. But for now, it's a hidden gem.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2009

My friends and I decided to take a break away from the hustle & bustle of city life. From the ferry terminal in Lagoi, It took us a good 45mins drive to get to Putri Pandan Resort.

If I am not mistaken, there are only 8 bungalows on this resort. The bungalow that we stayed had two separate rooms. Each room had a fan, shower room and a bed. Yes. That was it. Nothing fancy or tacky - it was really back to basics. The view from our room was absolutely breathtaking. We had our own private beach. That was probably the highlight of this trip. Just a note, you might wanna bring some insect repellent - the sandflies can be quite irritating.

There is only one canteen-looking restaurant at Putri Pandan. The staffs there are friendly and accomodating. The food was reasonably priced and although the menu was limited, whatever selection of dishes we had tasted great. On our last night, we ordered seafood - it was cooked Indonesian style and was fresh.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place that is nothing like those typical commercialized bintan resorts - and if you are not fussy about having to sleep in a non-airconditioned room with no amenities - then this is the ideal place for a quick getaway. It is simply rejuvenating and you will indeed get to taste the lifestyle of getting back to basics.

Dear travellers,
Putri Pandan resort is a newly build-up resort, ver nice rooms, still uncommercialised, in a very natural environment and the food is highly recommendable (esp. sea-food!).
An ideal place for those seeking peace and quietness for relaxing ;-)
