Travelled to Bintan (Nirwana Resort) for a September honeymoon and had an awesome time. It is only a 45 minute ferry trip from singapore (take medication if you suffer motion sickness). If you haven't been before make sure you also take some time to check out Singapore.
We were enchanted from the moment we reached the main entry of the resort. There was so much to do from the activities program to bike hire/sea activities, an elephant ride to visiting nearby markets. The horizon pool at the resort is truly stunning, and the beach is lovely, raked every morning. The staff all around are great, and the restaurant/other dining options serve delicious food. We had some fantastic spa treatments as well at nearby Angsana.
We hired a guide and drove around the island for a day, this you must do at least for one day - there are so many stunning spots you just cant reach by foot, stunning beaches around the island as well. I would have done at least 2/3 days as we just had so much fun (again take medication if you suffer motion sickness!) We had a great guide and experienced so much including culturally and a ride in a tiny boat in some pretty rough ocean!!
Note that Bintan is busier on weekends due to Singapore day-trippers/visitors.
No hesitations in recommending Nirwana/Bintan for a fantastic holiday!
