Family of 5 with 2 kids and 1 toddler. A well appointed and very well run resort. The staff were the best we have ever come across and the food over the Christmas period was way above our expectations with excellent quality produce and a large choice. We have eaten in 3 star restaurants around the world and we are generally picky eaters so this is a real testament to the cooks focusing on both quantity and quality every day. The rooms are a good size although needing a lick of paint here and there to earn that full five stars, but still comfortable and clean. The kids clubs are great too and again the staff very friendly and always helpful. We hired a nanny through the club, Yeni, and she was so good we would have liked to have taken her back home with us.
Overall we loved it here and will be coming back, we cannot recommend this place any higher for the beauty of the beach and hotel architecture, quality and naturalness of the staff both the GOs and the GEs, the activities for the whole family. Feeling quite guilty about the 4 and a half stars but just a lick of paint and your good.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Island of Bintan to the south of Singapore is full of history, marked by fallen empires. Its tranquil bays were long used by the Orang Laut pirates as a refuge. This is where Club Med Bintan Island, a haven of tranquility and refinement combining modernity with Asian tradition, now nestles. From the terrace of the Bar, feast your eyes on the mass of lapis-lazuli blue, mother of pearl and emerald, from the pool to the lush gardens. Nearby, Ria Bintan Golf Course is also a golfer's heaven. ... more less
