Hotel Overview


Bintan is the largest of the islands in the Riau Archipelago in Sumatra, Indonesia, a 45 minute ferry ride from Singapore.

Rooms at Banyan Tree Bintan

Enveloped in tropical vegetation, the rooms at Banyan Tree are designed to preserve Bintan’s natural beauty, and ensure you have an unforgettable stay. When staying in one of the 6 types of villas, you’ll encounter tropical birds in the trees, fruit bats softly chattering outside your window, and the occasional gecko skittering over the roof. All this contrasts beautifully with the classical simplicity of the architecture, characterised by statuesque pillars, elegant masonry and rustic thatched roofs. The interior is equally stylish, blending sultry colours and traditional Indonesian details with fresh creams and whites. For small families and couples the Bayfront Pool Villas are ideal as they have their own infinity pools and a great deal of space. For the ultimate honeymoon luxury, the Spa Pool Villas enjoy the added privacy of in-room pools, and private spa-treatment areas.

Food and Facilities

As you’d expect from a Banyan Tree resort, there’s an incredible choice of international cuisine at Bintan’s many restaurants, with French, Spanish, Japanese, and of course traditional Indonesian cuisine. But what makes this resort so special are the unique dining experiences, in this captivating tropical setting. These include a rejuvenating Yoga breakfast, a dramatic dinner on ocean-sprayed rocks, or a voile-canopied feast on the beach as an Indonesian folk-tale unfolds around you.

Activities at Banyan Tree Bintan

Banyan Tree Bintan is heaven for golf fanatics, with a mixed terrain course on site, and a 36 hole Gary Player designed course nearby. Energetic families can make a splash on banana boats, canoes, and catamaran trips, and can also get involved in the hotel’s conservation project – learning about the endangered fresh-water turtles, and going on nature walks. If this has inspired the Attenborough in you, you can head out of the resort for a jungle trek or watery mangrove tour, spotting sleeping snakes and armies of fireflies on the way. Meanwhile Bintan’s capital and shipping hub, Tanjung Pinang, is great for bargain hunting, a diverse mixture of temples, or taking the short ferry ride over to Singapore. After all this, where better to relax than at Banyan Tree Bintan's wonderfully exotic spa? Here you can indulge in their signature Tropical Rainmist therapy, or have a massage on one of the stunning pavillions, overlooking the South China sea.
