The Residence Bintan Review: Unforgettable Trip to Bintan

There’s no doubt that travelling presents the best opportunity for the family to bond and make memories for life. But at the same time, we have to plan travels properly and there are many factors that we need to consider – work and school schedules, distance, duration of office leaves / school holidays and so on. During kids’ March holidays, we wanted to travel to a place which is not too far from Singapore, which offers the best for all in the family and something that will fill us with positive vibes and rejuvenate us. We chose The Residence Bintan for our short getaway and it proved to be such a wise and amazing choice!

The Residence Bintan – Luxury Resort located on the island of Bintan, Indonesia

The best advantage to be in Singapore? You can fly to anywhere in the world conveniently from here and there are many countries that are so near from it. Bintan island of Indonesia is one such choice and it’s very famous among local Singapore residents. We had been to Bintan many year ago and it was time to refresh our memory.

The Residence Bintan is a luxury beachfront resort located on Bintan island. The resort is situated on the northern coast of the island, overlooking the South China Sea and offering stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

Singapore to Bintan to the Resort

It’s straightforward and easy to reach The Residence Bintan. The resort is easily accessible from Singapore, with a short ferry ride from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to the nearby Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal. Resort’s bus will take you the resort. It’s slightly far off from the ferry terminal and that gives you a great opportunity to view Bintan town up close and personal.

The experience of super awesome service of The Residence Bintan staff starts right from the bus. Hot towel to refresh you and yummy Indonesian snack to greet you are some of the highlights. Also, you will fall in love with the resort the moment you get down. Signature drink welcomes you heartily.
