I travelled to LooLa with our daughters, aged 6 and 9. This was a great visit, memorable for the friendliness of the staff, the easy pace and the range of activities. We were met at Tanjung Pinang and had a straightforward transfer across Bintan. The accommodation - we were in a hut on stilts over the water - was greeted with 'cool!' from the kids. Basic, but absolutely comfortable and plenty of privacy. The girls loved the fact that the tide comes in under the hut, and the view from the window on the seaward side was beautiful. Elsa was our guide during our stay, and se looked after us with tons of enthusiasm and lots of warmth. She encouraged the girls in the more daunting activities - such as coconut tree climbing - but also had plenty of time to talk about the community and village life. Great range of things to do - after 3 full days, we had to leave some things for next time. Absolutely at your pace, but we sailed, kayaked, swam among mangroves, collected shells, used the climbing wall and 'flying fox' (zipline), and ate a lot! Food was mostly Indonesian with occasional Western 'delights' - chicken nuggets, for instance - according to preference. Seafood, especially fresh local fish, delicious.
Highly recommended. Booking easy and helpful, great staff, tranquil but with lots to do. Thanks!
