Impromptu Weekend Getaway in Bintan

Routine can be attractive and certainly has its uses, but life is no fun without a little spontaneity. So, pack and go!

Itching for a getaway and not worrying about your budget?

Living in a fast-paced environment such as Singapore would mean that many of us crave a getaway for a good rest.

Even so, not many of us have the luxury of taking time off for travel as and when we desire due to different commitments.

If you are looking for a fuss-free and fast day trip without the hassle of having to change your currency — you may consider Bintan Island. It has always been a hot favourite for a quick weekend getaway if you are living in Singapore.

Nirwana Gardens is one of the resorts in Bintan which is 55 minutes away via ferry from (Tanah Merah Terminal) Singapore. It’s my third time here though. Still, I find it great as you do not need to go out of the resort as you would have everything you need for a relaxing weekend.

That includes riding around the resort on a Ninebot, shuttle bus or a golf cart and indulging in all your favourite adventure with extensive variety of both land and sea recreational activities available. You can simply enjoy a sunny day out in the ocean with your loved one or have a relaxing massage at Anandya Spa. If you love nature you can enjoy the walk or run in the jungle. There’s even a mini zoo on the premises where you can feed elephants!

Dining is available at every corner of the resort. You can choose from the 5 restaurants or  grab a coffee at the coffee shop. You can unwind or party at one of the hotel bars and  a nightclub.  The resort has a souvenir shop too. A complimentary buffet breakfast is offered and a bowling ticket good for two. Wireless Internet access is available everywhere you go.
