Please boycott Bintan Lagoon.
Was there also earlier this year. Prices are relatively almost the same as Spore mid tier.
Not worth to go. With the same amount, better fly to Bali or Bangkok. More sin to indulge & more options for your same dollar.

Stay at tanjung pinang.
Rent car one day sgd30.
Drive around the island to see beaches, temples, kelong for seafood, play seasports, climb mount bintan, visit penyenget island.
At night go to pek sua bu(something like newton) for hawker food. If still hungry go to near beaches for their grilled seafood(something like east coast lagoon).
Morning stroll the coffeeshops for typical hainanese/teochew breakfast.
If have more time take a ferry trip down to lingga islands.

That then is called travelling. You want to stay in resort 24/7 go Ubin will do.

Bro, you been to Lingga islands? Can share how to get there? Is the boat dangerous?

Maybe go Batam instead? At least in places like Harris Resort, they have feeder bus to go town. I have been to Bintan Lagoon about 10 to 15 years ago and things obviously have not changed much

Only went Bintan Lagoon Resort as a company trip(All expenses covered by coy) or with my family(As BIL's sister has a villa there so stay is covered)

Practically rot at the place..

Order from BBQ wholesale, have them deliver to ferry terminal then check in..Bring hotdogs, luncheon meat, instant noodles, bread..Stock up some drinks from SG, alcohol and cigarettes from DFS...

Only had one meal in the restaurant..

That was in 2013, the last time i've been there..Nowadays not that keen to go riao..

Just came back from the most carrot-chopping place ever!

Here's how they carrot chop tourists:

1) Their minimart sell items without price tag and got tricked into buying one 1.5 litre mineral water at S$4.30

2) One chocolate milk shake costs S$8

3) One magnum ice cream costs S$4

4) One hour massage costs S$100 (SG only costs half of that!)

5) One hour ride on an all-terrain vehicle costs S$132 for 2 pax

6) One buffet with most expensive items being stew beef and flower crab costs S$45 per pax.

7) One nasi goreng costs $18, haven't include 10% tax and 10% service charge. Everything u eat there will incur 10% tax and 10% service charge, that's why one magnum can originally cost $3.3 and after tax become S$4!

Things are so expensive that I wanna go out and explore, so I ask the staff how to travel out, he told me he cannot share... as they want to keep us within the resort!

Come on, even Bangkok is cheaper and their economy is better than Indon. What warrants such sky-high pricing?

So if you don't want to be carrot head, u literally have nothing to do the whole time in their expensive resort!

Only redeeming factors are clean beach and good service. Every of them smiling so happily at you as they prepare their carrot chopping board!


in b4 no money don't go tour
this is why people say Sinkies are the worst tourists...

spend abit of money also kpkb....

Far cheaper than flying to another country and none of the white trash like Phuket and Bali.

What's the problem?

Went there with moi extended family a few times. Stayed at company villa. Got buggy de.

My aunts brought food like you wouldn't believe. We brought enough food for 5 days x 3 meals for 10 pax with some left over. Moi was chef the last time round. Mostly spent my awake hrs prepping and cooking.

Nothing to do there one. Just explore the resort and beach area with the buggy. Race the buggy around the place. If no buggy ish cannot go. Boring like fug.
