The exclusive Bintan resorts
The northern coast of Bintan Island draws holiday makers in droves that want nothing more than to bask in the sun's rays while soaking up the tranquillity of this exotic location. It's a considerable departure from the rest of the island with a slew of premium resort getaways, relaxing spas and water-based fun.
With a reputation for quality and comfort, Club Med provides travellers of all ages with a plush, all-inclusive experience with everything from children's activities to the manicured greens of the Ria Bintan Golf Club. Nirwana and Angsana also offer star-rated quality with luxury rooms on the northern coast.
Trikora beaches in north eastern Bintan
If you'd like to escape the primped and preened resorts of the northern coast, head east to Trikora. Along with a selection of less travelled beaches, Trikora offers jungle tours, fishing trips and island hopping to discover some of the surrounding traditional villages.
Hotels in the Trikora area vary from modestly priced hostels to the more extravagant resorts, making this a great destination for all types of traveller. If you're hoping to save a few bucks, the Mutiara Beach Guesthouse offers a traditional village-style set-up with a private beach. Bintan Cabana Beach Resort and Bintan SpaVilla Beach Resort provide comfortable, clean rooms with mid-range prices.
Experience the buzz of Tanjung Pinang
Tanjung Pinang is the largest town on Bintan Island and a buzzing hive of local culture. It is well worth checking out for an authentic look at everyday living in Bintan. It also offers the chance to explore local shops and try your hand at traditional Kelong fishing.
If you're interested in more than a day trip, Tanjung Pinang lodging won't set you back too much. Prices are pretty reasonable across the board with a range of mid-range hotels to choose from. This includes the Pelangi Hotel & Resort – a 3-star stay that offers simple but comfortable rooms within 15 minutes of the Sri Bintan Pura Ferry Terminal and airport.
