So, you just need a breather from life and want to have a relaxing getaway to Bintan. No stressing, not too much moving, and just reconnect with yourself. Luckily for you, there’s plenty of ways you can ensure that your Bintan getaway is as rejuvenating and as leisurely as possible. Here are 5 ideas of things you can add to your plans to have a truly relaxing vacation on this beautiful island.

Idea 1: Book the Perfect Bintan Beach Resort

The beach resort you book in Bintan is not just for sleeping; if you truly want to enjoy your vacation, the resort itself should be ideal for beyond just bedtime. Book a beach resort such as Club Med Bintan Island so that you can not only sleep well but lounge around in the resort area with all your meals and vacation drinks taken care of. That way, you only need to leave the resort if you want to see other tourist attractions, and not to get your basic needs met. Doesn’t get more leisurely than that, does it? Our resort also offers all the said meals and drinks in the price, so you don’t even have to worry about your budget when you stay with us. Not only that, we also have options to keep your kids busy if you bring them along, so you have more ‘me time’ for yourself.

Idea 2: Pamper Yourself with a Massage in a Good Bintan Spa

No getaway is complete without a good spa experience, and Bintan is no different. Get a heavenly massage at any of Bintan’s spas to experience not just your muscles unwinding, but a new style of massage that is unique to this region. Indonesian massage is different from Thai massage in that there is a lot of body contact and deep pushing and kneading, which can be a tad uncomfortable but leave you feeling absolutely refreshed after. If you stay with us at Club Med Bintan, book your massage at our onsite Asmara Spa for a great ambience you’d be happy to post on Instagram plus quality massages done hygienically.

Idea 3: Gear Up for a Game of Golf/Round of Yoga to Destress

While there are a variety of water sports you can engage in while at Bintan, for a relaxing and classy option, why not go for a game of golf instead? Bintan is a very popular destination for golfers due to the presence of various golf courses that are internationally-acclaimed and designed by pro golfers. These golf courses include the Ria Bintan Golf Club and Bintan Lagoon Golf Club, which are a very short distance away from our Club Med Bintan beach resort. If you’re not much of a golfer yet, you can enrol in our group golf lessons to learn the basics.

Prefer to move your body a little more? Then an alternative would be to take up some yoga classes in Bintan. Flex away all the stress cooped up in your body, and be one with your body and mind. Guests at Club Med Bintan have access to both regular yoga and aerial yoga sessions as part of their all-inclusive package, respectively at sunrise and sunset. Don’t miss out on this if you’re staying with us!

Idea 4: Fill Up Your Instagram with Pictures of Local Attractions

If you do decide that leisure also means seeing what’s beyond your Bintan beach resort, then you simply must head to some of Bintan’s picturesque local attractions to show off your fabulous vacation to your followers. Some of these key attractions include Penyengat Island, Senggarang Village, Tanjung Pinang and the nearby mangrove rivers. If you stay at our resort, we can arrange excursions to some of these locations at a small additional fee.

Idea 5: Dine with Breathtaking Views All-Around

It’s not just your Bintan massages that need to have the right ambience; no luxury vacation is complete without an excellent dining experience where you are surrounded with gorgeous views that instil a sense of peace within. One good option to visit for such views is the Kelong Seafood Restaurant, which offers an amazing view of the ocean all-around. Alternatively, Club Med Bintan guests can also head to The Terrasse onsite, which is our restaurant with a comfortably breezy outdoor dining area where you can view the amazing South China Sea from a great vantage point.

Just an hour’s ferry ride from Singapore, Bintan offers you a wonderful getaway that is convenient but hits the spot for de-stressing. By remembering the above options, you will find that Bintan certainly has a lot to offer those who are looking for a comfortable, leisurely, and overall relaxing vacation!
