Bintan Island

Hi there

Can anyone recommend a Hotel / Resort on Bintan Island for 2 adults and 2 kids. We are looking for a nice clean Hotel with pool and beach and a full buffet breakfast. Everyone is recommending Club Med but the cost is criminal....

Thanks Kel

Hi there,

I intend to travel from Singapore to Bintan at end of December. Does anyone know if that time is safe to travel by ferry, i.e. will the travel route be affected by the monsoon? Would we be able to have some sea sport activities during that time? Thanks

I used this site when making my decisions years ago


to see what resorts and activities there were there. we stayed at Nirvana Gardens and there were another three resorts very close. there was a complex of villas (still part of Nirvana i think) behind NG and we used to take the kids there for the pool. had a slippery dip and was quieter than the main pool.

Hi, I am going to Bintan next Feb.

Not sure if this is off topic,

I found an earlier discussion in TA which mentioned that there is no Duty Free in Bintan Ferry Terminal. If I would like to bring my own wine to Hotel (which many has reccomended as it is cheaper), I would have to buy from Tanah Merah Duty Free. May I know if this is still the case?

Stayed at Banyu Biru Villas in Nirwana Gardens last week for 4 nights. Yes there is still a pool there with a slippery dip that very few people use and was heaps quieter than the main pool.

Take your own wine, it will be cheaper. Can buy beer at Tanah Merah (about $7 for 3 cans or $55 a slab) but the cheapest place is Paser Oleh Oleh where it is about $35 a slab. $7++ if buying in NG.
