We only had one night and two days at Banyan Tree, a short weekend getaway from Singapore. I had heard good things about the hotel and we wanted something quiet and relaxing so spent the extra making sure that we got the best Bintan had to offer. Unfortunately I am not sure that this hotel fully lived up to my... More

Do you want to spend all your money on a marvelous earth treasure? You can spend a big chunk of money here but you will not find the reason why? Food is average, beverage is well overpriced. How about a plain veuve Clicquot for 280 USD or a 10$ wine sold for over 80$. And what about the kitchen? A... More

I will come back to Bintan (might try the Banyan Tree's sister property, Angsana, next time though). I had no idea such a beautiful, calm beach was this close to Singapore.

We stayed for 3 nights last week and enjoyed our stay immensely. It was the staff's passion for service that made this stay so enjoyable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Close to Singapore lies a sweep of brilliant Indonesian islands, the most spectacular of which are found in the Riau Archipelago. Bintan Island has long been one of the region's most popular destinations. Banyan Tree Bintan occupies 240 hectares on the sea front and is comprised of 72 villas modeled on traditional Balinese architecture, all beautifully located in virgin forest. The resort's Jacuzzi villas have jacuzzis built into their sun decks whilst the two-bedroom pool villas have their own plunge or swimming pools and are particularly suitable for families. Culinary variety is the name of the game with "Crossroads" offering Western cuisine in an air-conditioned or al fresco setting while the Saffron Restaurant serves Thai and South East Asian specialties. You can also dine in your own villa - simply order from the a la carte menu or make a selection from the BBQ dinners cooked in front of your eyes. The new food and beverage outlet, "The Cove," is modern and up-tempo; Mediterranean cuisine is prepared here to perfection. ... more   less
