Nirwana Resort Hotel is one of the 5 resort hotels/villas located within the compound of the vast Nirwana Gardens in Bintan Island locally known as Pulau Bintan in Indonesia.
My first visit in the island was in 2007 where my colleagues and I stayed at the posh Angsana Bintan Resort for team-building and product training followed by a family visit at Bintan Lagoon in 2010. In summary, it was my 3rd time visiting the island, hubby and K's 2nd time and G's first time.
We are fortunate to be living quite close to Bintan Resorts, just 55-minute away via fast speed ferry to be exact from Singapoore's Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, followed by a short land transfer from Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal to the resort.
Just how I fell in love with Angsana Resort (which is located right next to Nirwana Gardens - I found out the day we exited the premises) and how my family tremendously enjoyed our stay in Bintan Lagoon, Nirwana Resort Hotel did not fall short of anything except for the outdated room we were given.
If I were to choose among the 3 Bintan Resorts I have visited, Nirwana will be my top pick.
Here are the list of things we loved about the resort:
1. The Huge Pool Area
2. The Beach Front
3. The Resort Centre and Happy Valley Club House
4. The Mini Zoo
5. The Beach Club
6. The Kelong Seafood Restaurant
The Kelong Seafood Restaurant is the only place to go in Bintan where you can tuck into the richest and freshest seafood, while enjoying the balmy sea breeze and a panoramic view of the South China Sea. Built on stilts just above the sea, dining at The Kelong will be an unforgettable experience!7. The Kids Club
