Great Restos! Mar 16, 2014
My friend revealed to us that her last beach encounter was three years ago, that long! We definitely have to fix my friend’s thirst for saltwater and binge in to a short getaway before we lose our minds as were all stressed out from work and we desperately need a break.After 2 weeks, three of us were off to one of the closest beaches in Singapore - Bintan, Indonesia.
We stayed at Bintan Agro Beach Resort, 45minutes away from the town proper. The hotel accommodation with dinner and breakfast was included in the tour package we availed in Singapore on March 2014 for 2D/1N. This was promo package from LokoPoko Pte Ltd which include the two-way ferry transport service Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal Singapore, land transfers, half day city tour including lunch and relaxing one-hour full body massage. Tour package cost was SG$159 each for triple sharing.
We arrived in the hotel with the receptionists greeting us with big smiles and warm welcome as they attend to the influx of guests. The lobby was open air and has several lounges and decorated with several art pieces and also some vintage cars around. The surroundings were clean and well-maintained. The downside was the toilets which only can serve two at a time for the ladies, inconvenient during peak season, as those checking in and out were already piling.
We stayed in a standard double bedroom. Except for the receptionists at the lobby, the other staffs do not speak English well so we have to improvise sign language to communicate. We included in our reservation to provide extra bed but was not prepared yet when we arrived. They immediately arrange for the extra foams when we check in. The room was spacious even with the addition of the extra bed and has full height windows. Our view was the kids’ pool though, not the beach front unlike the other cabanas.
There was some kite surfing event on that weekend. We were in awe when we saw so many of them. Later we realized however that there was no safe space left in the beach front for ordinary tourists like us to swim because the surfers had already flocked it. We won’t risk being hit by their kites so we satisfied ourselves watching them having a great time and scheduled for a swimming on the pool the next morning. We got our chance of the seawater when we signed in for snorkeling activity. Aside from snorkeling, they have rentals for kayaking, flying fish, banana boat, bicycle and some island hopping tours and spa packages.
They have two restaurants, the Asiana Cafeteria where we had buffet breakfast and complimentary drinks and the Sun Moon Kelong Restaurant and Bar for the lovely dinner under the moonlight with soft music and gentle ocean breeze. After we checked out, we had lunch at Sun Moon and plunged to our seafood cravings. The price was twice cheaper if we had the same in Singapore, it was such a great treat.
We had a wonderful weekend staying in this hotel. I wouldn’t mind coming back and maybe try kite surfing next time.
