A nice weekend getaway from populated Singapore. Putri Pandan is charming, peaceful and a great change to the other big resorts in Bintan.
You get your own spacious beach hut, located right smack on a white soft sandy beach facing the open sea. Avoid the sandflies season....they're nasty buggers!
Room and bathroom are comfy and clean. Just don't expect much. But watch out for leaky roof, bed got wet during a heavy downpour. The staffs were nice to mop and dry the room for us.
For meals, better to pay by Indo Rupiahs. Yummy grilled fish!
Let's just hope that someday this place won't be filled with weekend family holidaymakers. But for now, it's a hidden gem.
