Bintan Resorts

The first thing one would notice when stepping into the café is that Bintan Delicacies feels similar to that of a quaint tea-house, both serene and peaceful – the perfect setting to while away a lazy afternoon with a decent cup of coffee or tea and some kueh lapis. Located within Chill Cove @ Treasure Bay Bintan, Bintan Delicacies is one of the best spots to take a break from all the fun in the sun at Crystal Lagoon. Unwind after a day of activities and enjoy some light local delights before dinner and enjoy the sun set over the lagoon.

Embark on a back-to-nature adventure as you journey through the thick mangroves of Bintan along Sebung River. The dense foliage and interconnected roots of the trees naturally give rise to a thriving community of animals and plants. Witness the agile leaps of macaques and silver leaf monkeys, and colourful kingfishers as you sail across the mangrove jungle on the Mangrove Discovery Tour.

 

Sebung River is home to hundreds of wildlife and fauna species. The roots of the mangrove forest holds the soil firmly to the water bed, preventing soil erosion and safeguards the coasts of Bintan. Keep an eye out for mangrove snakes curled up on the trees that form a natural canopy above the meandering river. Monitor lizards also form part of the local community. Sebung River is also home to marine life such as fishes, mud skippers, clams and more. Spot the elusive mud lobsters that weave homes through the mounds. Learn to identify the different species of mangroves and how the river provides a livelihood for its local residents.

 

For another extraordinary experience, sign up for the night tour that departs daily at 7:30pm. Unlike in the day, the mangrove is serene and peaceful; the rippled river glistens under the pale moonlight. As your eyes adjust to the surrounding darkness, you will see the intermittent yet enchanting glow of dancing fireflies – the main highlight of the night tour. Remember to gaze up at the starry skies too, for such abundance is a spectacle you will hardly get to see in urban civilization.

 

Nestled in the Sebung River are some of the most delectable seafood options. Dine in restaurants on wooden stilts known as kelongs, and relish at freshly caught seafood of the day.

 

To experience the wonders of the Bintan Mangrove, check out Mangrove Discovery Tour (Day/Night) for more details.

One of the primary highlights of Chill Cove @ Treasure Bay Bintan would go to the first and largest recreational man-made seawater lagoon in all of Southeast Asia – the 6.3-hectare Crystal Lagoon. Visually stunning, Crystal Lagoon is a state-of-the-art recreational lagoon of pristine and filtered seawater designed to accommodate a wide myriad of activities such as kayaking, sailing, swimming and snorkeling. The lagoon is consistently turquoise, which preps perfectly as the absolute backdrop for captivating photograph moments.

 

The activity options available and possible at Crystal Lagoon are unlimited. Thrust yourself into the sky with the Jetovator, a water sports accessory that redirects water thrust to propel and elevate riders into mid-air. Feel the formidable force of the winds brushing against your cheeks as the powerful aqua jets of the Jetovator propel you above the water surface. Adrenaline junkies will love the cable ski facility, or pit against one another at the obstacles of the Water Sports Park.

 

For those who may prefer more relaxed means to explore the area, you may choose to cruise the scenic perimeter of the Crystal Lagoon with a Solar Boat Ride, or pedal around at your own pace on a Water Tricycle.

 

Unlike the open sea where there are risks of underlying currents, the Crystal Lagoon allows for families with younger kids to enjoy fun-filled activities safely. Kids could play in the shallower zones with giant unicorn floats, and build sandcastles in a separated sand pit. For maximum enjoyment, look out for exciting packages on www.treasurebaybintan.com!

Newly constructed, Gedung Gonggong serves as a Tourism Infomation Centre and is the icon of Tanjung Pinang. This unique building façade is designed to resemble the shell of the Gonggong. A sea snail found in waters surrounding Bintan, Gonggong is a popular local delicacy enjoyed with flavourful sauces after it is boiled or steamed.

 

The Gonggong building sits majestically at Laman Boenda (Mother’s Promenade), an open community space that offers beautiful sea views; watch as the sun disappears below the horizon with Pulau Penyengat in the foreground. This is a great relaxation spot with a children’s playground and manicured green spaces. Upcoming developments of the town including a floating mosque can be spotted from here.

Approximately 20 minutes away from the pearly sands of Trikora Beach, lies a serene pilgrimage spot known as the Grotto Santa Maria. From the entrance, the trail starts with the ’14 Stations of the Cross’, depicting the story of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion in limestone statues, leads up to a beautifully preserved statue of Virgin Mary in a cave, beside a quaint little chapel. The chapel comes to life on Sundays as devotees gather with song and prayer during mass sessions.

 

The tranquil grounds is a reminder of Bintan’s past as a migrant settlement with the existence of a small Catholic community in Trikora dating back to the 1960’s. A steady flow of people were transiting through the area to work in the construction industry or palm oil plantations in Malaysia. They prayed for protection in a temporary chapel under a wooden shed along Trikora Beach Point 3 before embarking on the dangerous sea journey to Southern Johor.

 

The place of worship moved to its permanent home in the Telok Dalam hillside in the 1970’s. A charismatic French priest, Father Henri Jourdain, also known as Père Henri, moved to Bintan in 1977 and contributed his long term vision to the site. Known to the locals as Pastor Henri, he led the Tanjung Pinang parish which also included devotees from surrounding islands.

 

Keeping to the Indonesian tradition of seeking enlightenment in mountain caves, Père Henri found a large statue of the Virgin Mary in Java that was installed in a small pagoda-like pavilion and blessed by Bishop Hilarius. The installation of the statue fortified the Telok Dalam site as a place of pilgrimage and meditation for both, locals and tourists visiting the popular Trikora beaches.

 

The Virgin Mary statue displayed weighs around 250 kg. A larger grotto was built by Vietnamese refugees with donations from the Tanjung Pinang community and inaugurated in 2001. The construction of the elegant chapel and the 14 Stations of the Cross was sponsored by the Catholic community of Singapore and inaugurated in 2010.

 

Grotto Santa Maria is part of the Trail of Sea Gypsies Tour.

Embark on a trek up the tallest summit of Bintan, soak in the dense tropical rainforest and enjoy the magnificent 360 view of the island at the top. Standing at 340-metres, Gunung Bintan is home to ancient trees up to 40-metres tall and animals like silver leaf monkeys, sun birds, eagles and more.

 

Observe the different tree species and learn about the various flora and fauna in the area. Indulge in the sights and sounds of nature and try to spot seasonal fruits such as durian, jackfruit, mangosteen, papaya and more.

 

Not far from the top, on the way down, hikers can take a dip at a pool called “Kolam Puteri” or Princess’s Pool. According to local legend, a swim in the clear waters will bring you good luck! Step under the waterfall to receive a cool shower of blessings. Nothing beats a refreshing dip after some hiking action! The entire hike takes approximately 2 to 4 hours, depending on fitness level and the amount of time you’d like to spend enjoying the wild.

 

Entrance:

  • Waterfall: IDR 10,000

Be transported into a dreamy insta-worthy photo spot with mysterious and picturesque hilly sand dunes at Gurun Pasir Busung. Located next to the road, Jalan Raya Busung near Tanjung Uban, the western bay of Bintan Island, it is hard to imagine coming across a ‘desert’ in the middle of a tropical Indonesia island.

 

After the extraction of sand was prohibited in Bintan Island, the area was left untouched and transformed into a charming desert sandscape under the magical hands of nature.

 

Gentle slopes with varying hues of light brown and yellow accompanied by tints of red in the sand makes Gurun Pasir Busung one of the most Instagram-able spots in Bintan Island. Bring the unique experience to the next level by hopping onto one of the Sahara-inspired photo spots available and immortalise the moment with your best pose.

Located on the North-Eastern tip of Bintan Island north of Trikora Beach, Panglong Village, Berakit is home to the largest community of sea gypsies in Bintan. Also commonly referred to as Orang Laut, the sea gypsies are sea nomads who dedicate their lives at sea. At this rustic village, discover the unique way of life of the sea gypsies carried down for generations over hundreds of years. Travel back in time as the labyrinth of stilt houses throw up an interesting peek into the lifestyle of the inhabitants.

 

Situated right at the entrance of Panglong Village are a few preserved charcoal kilns. On top of being a fishing village, Panglong Village was also a producer of mangrove charcoal in the past, about 20 years ago before using mangrove trees to produce charcoal was banned. The charcoal kilns are preserved as part of the government’s initiative to conserve the village’s history and culture.

 

Currently, even though most sea gypsies have now moved to live on land, most of the them still heavily depend on the sea to make a livelihood – fishing and selling their catch of the day along with other homemade produce such as dried seafood and deep fried seafood crackers (keropok).

 

Spend an afternoon in Panglong Village and revel in the simplicity of life. Spot fishermen returning from the sea with their catch, fixing their nets in the comforts of their front yards or drying seafood in the open.

 

Panglong Village is part of the Trail of Sea Gypsies Tour.
