    We travelled in a group of 4 adults.Rooms are nice and clean.Staff are very friendly. The downfall was anything you wanted to do cost money ,nothing was free for example the pool swim rings were hire only , the back gammon board cost, the golf cart to drive around the resort cost, to play billards it cost.When it first opened 25yrs ago these were included in your stay for free. You can't hire a car and drive around Bintan Island yourself , you have to hire a driver as well. Would we come here again probably not .

    Was driven here by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide-cum-driver arranged by Mayang Sari hotel. The "lakes" were a beautiful blue / torqoise colour, even more gorgeous under sunlight, and with the sand dunes, made for very pretty pictures. But we are ashamed to say this tourist spot came about due to man made excavation for huge amounts of sand, exported to Singapore (as told by our guide). A news article published coincidentally at the same time during our trip reported that the water in the "lakes" is actually toxic. :(

    We stop by one of the resort and paid IDR 10,000 at parking place and can enjoy this beach. Ordered coconut that was around IDR25,000 each. The beach was clean and not crowded.

    Interesting statues, remember to take your shoes off!
    Lots of warrior statues to the sides but building work is being carried out which spoils the ambience

    Magnificent view of 500 Lohan. Besides that there are also many other statues. I believe Buddhists will like this place and it should be a must visit for them.

    Hiked up to Mount Bintan & we were greeted with an amazing view when we reached the summit tower. However, ONE MOST IMPORTANT THING to take note, please go back down where you hike up from, never take the right side path down with ropes tying on the trees by another way, it’s misleading you to take that route but it’s not the right ones that will bring you down to the entrance of the mountain. We were stuck there for 6 hours because we took the wrong route. This is my precious piece of advice for you if you are looking to hike up this mountain.

    Didn't know about this until our guide asked us if we want to go. If we reached earlier probably more impressive but it was sunset … still good for a photo

    Stunning location away from it all. Out of season is best for peacefulness. Relaxing swim subject to weather and tide conditions.

    This place is very quiet and you would never know it's there in the woods but You Really REALLY need mosquito spray! I unfortunately wasn't told by the hotel who advertised the trip and must of taken 20+ bites in a very short time. Visit but keep covered and spray well is my advice.

    A short trip from Bintan harbor to the island. When you book a boat take 7k per passenger (one direction) about 15 person boat even if they try to sell you 200k boat. In the island other tourists would like to have photos with you, which is ok :) you can easily walk thru the island in less than two hours. Local people are very interested in you but not in a bad way. We liked most the Chinese temple and fishing villages near by.

    It was my most valuable trip. The kids were so innocent and lively, I miss them so much. Even though it was my first time meeting them, it was not awkward at all, they all made us feel so welcomed:) Although, we had a bit of a communication breakdown, they still tried their very best to include us in the activities. Would definitely go back again!!

    main street has cheap street food to buy while roaming around or you can just sit and eat in a resto or have a cup of coffee, This is a place where you cannot find some souveniers that says tanjung pinang or bintan island. I found one in an ode place

    The lantern park is situated near the beach and it looks new.

    Lights will be up and windy at night and good to take pic in the day.

    In our, somewhat last minute plan, we headed out to a coastal business city of Tanjung Pinang. Our guide suggested there is a heritage 'Water Village Walk". Similar to the ones you find near Sarawalk. But this one turned out to be a bit special since the small island, off Tanjung Pinang, called Pulau Peyengat houses a royal cemetery and grand mosque built by Sultan Riuau. The place gives a glimpse of how ancient Malacca Sultanate spread in the Indo-Javanese region before the fell to Portuguese invasion in c. 1511
