Bintan (Banyan Tree)
Perched on a hillside in Bintan in Indonesia, Banyan Tree Bintan is built in traditional Balinese style. It houses 64 luxury villas as well as three restaurants, an award-winning spa, a Greg Norman designed-golf course and a gallery.
Soak in the sun on Banyan Tree Bintan's secluded bay or take a dip in your private relaxation pool. For something different, explore the resort's Conservation Lab and participate in coral planting. Aimed at protecting threatened species and delicate ecosystems, the lab works with local communities and authorities to develop and promote alternative livelihood programmes that encourage the conservation of precious natural resources.
During your stay at Banyan Tree Bintan, you'll be able to undulge in an afternoon on the fairways, too. Tee off at the 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman. Carefully laid across 60 hectares of lush landscaping and moving through a terrain of forest, wetland, beachfront coconut groves and an abandoned quarry, this is an eclectic golfing experience.
For water-based activities, head to the Marine Centre for a spot of canoeing, windsurfing, rock-edge pool swimming, snorkelling or fishing. Or go on board an authentic fishing boat for romantic onboard dining.
Explore the island by bike or venture out into the mangrove forests, home to mangrove snakes, crabs and other creatures. End the day at the resort's spa for a relaxing herbal pouch massage. Whatever your tastes and interests, a stay in this luxury property in Bintan could be the perfect option.
