“2D1N School Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Although this was a school trip back in Oct 2007, it was a good retreat for us Tourism Students. The management gave us a tour around the premise, explaining to us what specific functions do and how the management work. It was a learning journey for us, which is not something you get everyday.

The rooms were good, no trouble at all, we were busy enjoying ourselves, and we enjoyed the hospitality by the hotel, and the locals. (There's a shuttle bus that'll bring you to town for a little shopping).

This resort is a good getaway for all types of travels, be it for family, relax & unwind, budget etc. Good job to the staffs there! =D

Room Tip: Tip of the journey: Speak their language to get great bargains in town, or you'll be hacked to d...

The Nirwana Beach Club is good for budget travellers who aimed to stay out at the beach as long as possible or read a book outside at the patio in serene surroundings. Small chalet-like rooms at SGD128 a night is bare mininum - just two beds (comfy enough), one sofa, 2 shelves for cloths and a mini bar with two bottles of water. No phone, no mirror (only in bathroom), no dryer, no hot flask or free coffee/tea. The reception is not close to the chalets as well so make sure you have everything you need - there's no shop at venue either. Opted to stay here as I was just attending a beach wedding for a night. if I were to stay longer, would have opted for the fancier Mayang Sari or the Nirwana Resort Hotel which flanked the beach club and have more and better facilities. But then again, you can easier walk to the other two properties (if there's no rain) - all are under the Nirwana Gardens umbrella - via the beach or cement walkways. There are also resort buses every half hour or you can try your luck with any of staff on their buggys. Good thing about the beach club is that it shared the nice sandy beach housed in a cosy bay inlet with the Mayang Sari and you are allowed to use the pool at Nirwana Resort as well, not to mention dining at their restaurants (which some friends claimed are better as well). So you could opt to pay less and have the best of three worlds. In a nutshell, if you like roughing it out and hang out at a nice beach a lot, this place for you, If you like luxury and comforts, then it's not. For instance, the chalets are definitely not sound-proof, the lizards chucking didn't keep us up but our neighbours who spoke up to 5am at their next door patio did...

We stayed in a cabana (44) that was further inside and was a 5 minute walk from the lobby. Initially, it might seem inconvenient, but it really isn't all bad. In fact, our cabana which was practically the last row furthest from the main road, was next to a small route that led to the resort centre with activities like bowling and table-tennis, as well as a foodcourt-style dining place called Makan-Makan. The food in Nirwana Gardens is very good. Free breakfast at the Coffee-Shop at the resort hotel was a good buffet! I would recommend the Spices Restaurant at Mayang Sari for its vegetarian Indian food. Wide selection of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, great flavours and extremely lovely service. We were just chilling out on the beach chairs at Mayang Sari, and decided to get a drink from the Spices Restaurant because the beach hut was closed. The service crew was nice enough to offer to send the drink over to the beach. Really really commendable service there!

Wherever you walk, you will meet staff who will be smiling and greeting. I admit it came as a shock for us Singaporeans who are misers with smiles. Being there made us friendlier, happier, and most importantly, more thankful for the genuine service. Thumbs up for the service crew! There was an instance when we exited our cabana and saw a cleaning staff driving his buggy past our place. We did not even dare to ask, but he offered us a ride right after seeing us. It was a great morning. He sent us right to our destination! These little acts of kindness really made our Bintan getaway a truly enjoyable one.

All charges there are in SGD, so no need to bring rupiah over. Food costs about SGD20 per meal per person. The cabana only has a small fridge, so dont bother with your cup noodles. Room amenities in the cabanas are as basic as it can get, but it is cosy and quaint. Not a single mosquito bite on me. Aircon was good, shower could be better, bed was comfy, nothing I would complain about.

Swimming pool at the resort hotel was a short walk/ a shuttle bus away. Free usage, shower facilities available there. Beach activities at the beach club include kayaking, banana boat, snorkelling, jetski, and bodyboarding. Kayaking was $14 for a double kayak for an hour. It got boring after 20 minutes so I would say, try something else. Maybe the banana boat ($10/pax for 15 minutes, I think). We did not go to Happy Valley though we passed by on a shuttle bus, and saw elephants, archery, and some other activities suited for a family with kids. There was flying fox too. A 3D2N stay there is a perfect duration.

All in all, great great getaway in Bintan. Would have been wonderful if they served Avocado Milkshake there. But oh wells, this is as close to perfect as it could get.

Room Tip: Small numbers are closer to the lobby. 50 is the furthest.

I stayed on 21.11.12 and really was quite amazed at how terrible the service is. It was raining heavily and we had no umbrella, we wanted to go for breakfast at nirwana gardens. We screamed and shout out to buggies who passed by our chalet but they just completely ignored us. Finally my husband had to walk in the heavy rain to the reception and begged for a buggy!! Last i recalled i paid for the accomodation but the staff has a way of making it like it was given free.
The rooms came with no phone, no kettle and there is no safe either.
The rooms are like a 2 star hotel standard.
The only good part is the beach is not crowded but be prepared to pay alot for the watersports.
One advise is to bring your own food as the food here are CRAZYYY expensive.
Never returning.

We payed 98 SGD for a night at the nirwana beach resort. For those 98 SGD we got:
- welcome servise right at the ferry who helped us with the customs and the luggage
- shuttle bus directly to the hotel
- a welcome drink (rather simple refreshment)
- nice breakfast for 2 persons
- a very basic room
- pool & restaurants within a few min walking distance
- free internet
- outstanding helpful and friendly service

For this price we got more than expected. Obviously this hotel doesnt compete in the 5 star league. I hope nobody paying that little money expects that. So be prepared that there's no champaign in the minibar, but just two bottles of water :)
The service was absolutely outstanding. Really nice and helpful staff.

The only thing I was not so happy with, was the fact that they could keep the rooms in better shape. The cupboard was almost falling apart and there was mold on the bathroom curtain. If they did occasional rennovation, this could be an even better place.

NirwanaGardens, The Management at Nirwana Gardens - Nirwana Beach Club, responded to this review, November 26, 2012
Hi Daniel B,

Warm Greetings from Nirwana Gardens and thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review. We were pleased to read on the positive experiences you had enjoyed during your stay at Nirwana Beach Club and hope that you had enjoyed your stay with us.

Nirwana Beach Club is one of our 5 resort properties within Nirwana Gardens, which we target largely to sea sports' lovers (as it is located directly opposite the Sea Sports Centre) as well as to travelers who may be budget conscious. Despite that, we continuously strive to provide our guests with the best service and experience possible during their vacation with us, to ensure that they have an enjoyable and worthwhile stay.

We have taken note of your comments on the conditions of the Cabanas, and rest assured that these will be brought directly to our Housekeeping & Engineering Departments and Department Heads to review and to improve on. It is comments like yours that we very much appreciate, as they bring to our attention the details which matter most to our guests and which we should work to rectify, to better serve our guests in the future.

We are glad to read that you enjoyed outstanding service, and will convey the commendations to our staff. Indeed, our service motto at Nirwana Gardens is to "Serve with extra (S)miles" ! :)

It's a pity we're unable to provide champagne in the mini fridge - we're sure most of our guests would love that! However we do have some great drink promotions at our dining / bar outlets, especially during our weekly beach party on Saturday nights at La Luna. Again, that is also just opposite the Nirwana Beach Club cabanas, so if you are coming back anytime soon, do drop by on a weekend for a party!

Once again, thank you very much for your valuable comments. We do hope to welcome you back to Nirwana Gardens and the beautiful island of Bintan very soon.


Warm Regards,
Management Team
Nirwana Gardens

it's located in the middle of a shuttle service route. v near to all locations.. e kelong restaurant tat serves fresh seafood.. e sports activities area called happy valley where u can do flying fox, pony riding.. bowling.. massage.. etc.. sea sports such as banana boat.. kayaking etc.. btw everyting is in sgd..

lodging wise.. very simple. initially there were 3 of us.. 1 of mi friend cldnt make it.. but nevertheless.. e cabin-like lodging is very spacious.. we're situated at e top of the hill so it really feels very exclusive.. of cuz since it's a resort n rooms r made of wood.. u can't really expect soundproofing.. its near the beach.. short walk.. so u're away frm e bar at nite.. wich opens till 2am.. still we can hear e singing.. imagine e cabins just beside the beach -_-" towels r provided.. basic amenities nt included.. so bring ya toothbrushes n shower foam/shampoo.

beach scenery wise.. avg. there r much betta beaches but definitely a place i recommend if u wan a short moment away frm the city n juz relax on an almost empty beach. feels like a pte beach when i woke up earlier to catch the sunrise... not a single soul in sight.. at least on e sat i went. sun was kinda crowded.

uber frendly n helpful staff. i didn't gt his name but tis chap is very cheerful.. always eager to serve u..
