Air Adventures Flying Club Bintan
It could be said that the best way to see Bintan is from a deckchair on the beach or beside the pool, with a cocktail in hand. Those looking for an extra holiday thrill, however, will love the experience of a flight with Air Adventures Flying Club Bintan, which is fully certified and approved by the Indonesian Aerosports Association (FASI). Whether you’re new to this kind of flying, or you’ve done it plenty of times before, it’s sure to make your time on Bintan even more memorable. Highlights include the following:
20-minute introductory flights in an ultra-light amphibious open-cockpit seaplane
You take off from and land on Lake Lagoi
During the flight, passengers can enjoy unparalleled views of Bintan, including aerial views of the many resorts, golf courses and beaches
Bintan Resorts is a tropical island paradise that offers the best of the sun, sand and sea for virtually the whole year, so it’s little wonder that all its hotels front the South China Sea, boasting pristine beaches with extensive water-sports facilities. Here’s a checklist of some of the activities available at the resorts, for those guests who are looking to mix a bit of fun and fitness with their relaxation.
In addition to the aforementioned water activities in Bintan, from November to March, the increased winds present ideal conditions for lovers of wind-surfing, boogie-boarding and long-boarding. From April to October, though, the calmer seas are ideal for exploring the underwater world, and for seeing the marine life at its most colourful and abundant. You’ll find facilities to satisfy every kind of deep-blue enthusiast, from the first-time snorkeller to the experienced scuba-diver – participating in your preferred water activity is as easy as a walk to the beach.
A secret waiting to be unveiled
Just 50 minutes by modern catamaran service from Singapore, Bintan Resorts now boasts a master-planned, world-class development called Lagoi Bay, which has officially opened since May 2015. Nestled on the beautiful northern coastline, Lagoi Bay is the new “Heart of Bintan”, encompassing luxury holiday resorts, beautifully designed residential villas, myriad outdoor activities, and Lagoi Beach Village, with its very own beachside shopping mall, Plaza Lagoi.
Taking centre stage as they welcome their first guests are The Sanchaya, which opened its doors in January 2015, and the Swiss-Belhotel Lagoi Bay. These two new hotels complement the already wide array of beach resorts on this Indonesian island, including well-known brand names like Banyan Tree Bintan and Club Med Bintan Island.
