10 Gorgeous Bintan Resorts That’ll Take You To Paradise Starting From SGD $70 A Night
Bintan Resorts You Probably Didn’t Even Know About
Think of getting away from Singapore for the weekend, and most Singaporeans think of going on a road trip to Malaysia or flying to Bangkok, discounting the perfectly good – and affordable – alternative that is Bintan Island.
Cast away all prior assumptions of the Bintan you think you know. This underrated Indonesian island will impress even the most skeptical of us.
To prove the point, we even went to Bintan and found 25 things to do there that warrant a trip there pronto. The cherry on top? Being able to stay in one of Bintan’s stunning properties that start from as low as S$70 per night!
1. The Canopi – The total glamping package
I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only kid who set up a pillow fort in the living room at night, attempting to live out my forest adventure dreams of camping in the outdoors. Canopi was like a dream come true; only now, it gets better with every step.
The Canopi could very well have been the set of Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams music video. Under your tent lies all the modern amenities you could ever want, from a four poster bed to a colonial workstation complete with a hanging glass chandelier.
This outdoor private shower perfectly complements the feel of the resort.
Step outside though and the outdoor shower brings you right back into nature (though not completely, don’t worry). The lush green walls form the perfect backdrop for your glamping adventure.
Feel free to take your pick from the Safari Tent Suites or the Lagoon Tent Suites. The Lagoon Tent Suites are always booked out and for good reason. Located mere steps from the water’s edge, waking up to this crystal blue lagoon was truly my beach paradise fantasy come true. There’s even an option for a hot tub in front of your tent for that added touch of glamping luxury.
One outstanding feature of The Canopi is their personalized outdoor BBQ experience! If the walk from your tent to the beach bar is too much for you, guests have the option to have a BBQ set up right outside their tent.
Choose from a wide variety of food items including lamb, vegetable skewers, nasi goreng and even mie goreng. The lamb was chargrilled to perfection and practically melts in your mouth.
Price: From SGD $190/ night (Safari Tent Suite) All activities will be charged individually upon confirmation.

2. Unparallelled luxury at The Sanchaya
You haven’t truly had a taste of the atas life until you’ve been to The Sanchaya. Not only does this resort bring hospitality and beach vibes to a whole new level, the breathtaking sea view from the moment you step into the resort’s lobby will leave you reeling in awe.
Like most resorts in Bintan, The Sanchaya offers a private beach specially for their guests. The biggest draw for us was how uninhabited and fairytale-like The Sanchaya’s beach was, as compared to “regular” beaches.
And for days when you don’t feel like getting your feet covered with sand, the pool at the resort offers the same sea-side view. Jump in and cast all your troubles away!
The super spacious dining room.
