Attractions near the Banyan Tree
Golfing at Laguna Bintan
Located next to the Banyan Tree resort, the 18-hole championship Laguna Bintan Golf Course welcomes golfers of all experience levels. The course was designed by Greg Norman to provide a challenge to seasoned golfers and a memorable introduction to the sport for first-time players. It is set on 60 hectares of landscaped grounds, where coconut groves meet wetland and a former quarry.
This expansive course features putting greens and driving ranges, where you can practice your swing before taking on the actual course. You may want to unwind after your round in the Laguna Cafe, which serves Asian and Western snacks and refreshments.
Floating down the Mangrove River
Take a trip down the Sebung River, led by an experienced guide while you watch the mangrove scenery drift by and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife. These river cruises have received eco-tourism awards for offering an authentic experience of the wilderness without having a harmful impact.
You can watch the sun set behind the trees and enjoy a buffet meal, before heading out in the boat again to watch the fireflies twinkling along the river banks. Your guide should also be able to point out the equatorial constellations that can be viewed with remarkable clarity away from the light pollution of urban areas.
