Are you planning a trip to Bintan island? An Indonesian treasure, here’s all you need to know to experience the very best Bintan has to offer you!

Need Accommodation?

Why not check into a Bintan island resort? From hotels such as The Residence Bintan to plenty of hotels and hostels as well, there’s plenty of accommodation to choose from if you don’t want to splurge on a resort.

Visit the Sand Dunes

The white sandy beaches aren’t the only sand-centric attraction on the island! Amid tropical-coastal lushness, lies the most mysterious and intriguing dunes of mysterious dunes of Gurun Pasir Busung. This was originally a quarry but these dunes are a must-visit on your trip to Bintan.

While this doesn’t sound special, hopping aboard the MV Doulos Phos isn’t want you would expect. While this ship was once sea-borne it is not permanently docked in Bintan and has been transformed into a boutique hotel. Make sure you come and check out this ship – it’s docked near the Bandar Bentan Telani terminal.

Stop by the Lagoon

Danau Biru, Kawal is not your regular lagoon. It boasts of some of the prettiest blue waters, amidst a backdrop of beautiful white sand banks. As the result of mining activities, this is the prettiest mistake in all of Bintan. Make sure you visit it for a great photo op, you won’t regret it!
