Your next getaway to Bintan could be your grandest one yet
Who knew paradise was only 55 minutes away? Next month, doors will officially open at The Residence Bintan, which looks to be yet another masterpiece from the prestigious Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts group.
If you're seeking a relaxing respite (sans the city chaos), this is the place to be. The Residence Bintan isn't just nestled on the largest island of the Riau Archipelago, but also features sweeping views of the South China Sea, thanks to the strategic positioning of the property.
Designed in harmony with its natural surroundings, every part of the residence showcases spacious areas with gorgeous natural light. Think oversized doors that open up to sandy beaches, as well as tropical gardens. Choose from their Beachfront Villas and Garden Terraces — both of which grants you a stunning ocean or garden vista as well as decent privacy with each room positioned along the coastline. Want to really live it up? Check in to any of their opulent two-bedroom villas held in a spot called The Estate, where you and your mates can enjoy a dip in the private infinity pool and direct access to the beach.
Don't worry about having to travel out for food. Head down to the resort's signature restaurant, Rica Rica, to enjoy a medley of traditional Indonesian and Pan-Asian grub. To loosen up those knots, pop into their award-winning British spa, Ila, touted for using organic ingredients in their local Ayurvedic rituals fused with modern techniques. Lastly, there are also yoga sessions for anyone looking to round up their entire wellness journey — the airy open views during the session is one you'll be coming back for.
The Residence Bintan will officially open on 8 February. To book a stay, click here.
