Where to Stay with Kids at Bintan Island

Among those things we love about Bintan is its enormous range of accommodation. There is everything from rustic beach bungalows into luxe pool villas and contemporary apartments. It’s ideal for families. On average, you can anticipate paying about $100-$200 per night for most lodging. The most basic digs can cost as little as $50, while the luxury resorts may be anywhere from $350-$500 depending on this day.

Angsana Bintan

Prices from S$154 each evening; 2-Bedroom Island Family Suite in S$439 per night

Our family of four spent two nights in the Angsana Resort, which is nestled between the luxurious Banyan Tree and The Cassia covered apartments. We remained in the Island Family Suite, a huge apartment with two bedrooms, two baths, a living room (with dining table and kitchenette), and a large deck complete with jacuzzi. The kids loved that they may run in the deck around the large grassy yard and directly to the pool and beach. Favorable wildlife abounds on the hotel grounds — on our early morning, we spotted frogs, tadpoles, and fish in the pond. From the rockpools, we discovered a sea cucumber, miniature crabs, and fish. In the late afternoon heat, we found a giant monitor lizard cooling himself in the pond.

Enjoy a happy hour to the shore beanbags as the kids dig happily in the sand, then grab a pizza or fried rice for supper in XANA Beach Club. It is well worth heading next door to The Cove in Banyan Tree for some next-level viewpoints and delicious Modern European food for lunch.

Kid-friendly highlights:

The kids’ club has been somewhat regular, coloring activities and a lot of toys in just a tiny room (situated conveniently near the spa!). A couple of scheduled actions is also available for you to reserve. Word has it there is a fresh Ranger’s App, with a great deal of fun conservation and nature-themed activities. Thus we’re excited about checking out that next time.

Banyan Tree Bintan

Prices from S$384 per night; 2-Bedroom Villas from S$619 per night

My husband and I first visited with the Banyan Tree to our “babymoon” in 2014 before Maggie was born. I have since returned several times to benefit from their phenomenal spa, which has a tranquil seafront setting that is unlike anything else you’ll find in Singapore. In retrospect, the peace and silence were squandered on us childless folk!

The Banyan Tree provides luxe pool villa lodging, nearly it all with beautiful water views. Still, there are restricted two-bedroom choices (and you will pay dearly for these ). In summary, it is excellent for a weekend off as a couple or with a kid, but may not be perfect with elderly kiddos. The vibe is “rustic luxury”; children will feel more comfortable in the Ansgana next door (that the two hotels share a shore ). In reality, children staying in the Banyan Tree may wish to look at Angsana’s fab kids’ club.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

Prices from S$115 per night

Not only is Bintan Lagoon Resort great for families, but also, it is ideal for couples, toddlers pal getaways, and even relaxing enough to take the grandparents. Despite its extensive grounds and higher guest capacity, it felt entirely private (frankly, it was like we were on an exclusive island!). Highlights of the resort include the fuss-free ferry transports (the ferry travels straight there!), excellent beachside massages, several dining options, 2-story pool beds for large households (or couples looking to live large for the weekend), and also a world-class golf course.

Vacation is more than just accommodation. It’s about making long-lasting memories. Discover more adventures in Bintan Island by visiting Wonderful Indonesia.
