A resort in "true" Bintan

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 21, 2009

This is the first non-Bintan Resort Group resort that I ventured to. Having seen the success of the conglomerate's resorts on the northern shores, local businesses had butted in on the scene offering more down to earth alternatives to their packaged sheen-glossed competitors.

Trikora Beach is a famous local beach on the eastern shores of the island. Be warned: It's an hour journey between Tanjung Pinang Ferry Terminal and the beach with only local villages littering your path so don't expect malls and shopping opportunities. I must confess I was quite disappointed with the beach - it resembled a mud flat at low tide more than a beach; fit for a nice walk but not much for swimming in.

The resort is more rustic and took on a more local flavour that the more upmarket approach adopted by the resorts of the Bintan Resort Group. Lacking is the glitz and smooth commercial gloss. I find the locals refreshing friendly. Friendly smiles and warm greetings were never absent.

The Jacuzzi Suite I had commanded a good view from the roof top but the room, while spacious, can best be described as comfortable. Certainly a rung down from opulent though I wasn't complaining. The open-air Jacuzzi is a welcome respite from the oppressive afternoon heat.

There are 2 restaurants - a cafe (opened till 11pm) serving light meals overlooking the beach and a Kelong style restaurant on the waters for something more heavy on the wallet. The meals at the cafe were alright - the staff were busy preparing food for a seminar when we arrived for lunch but they managed to squeeze 2 plates of food out for me and my mate. The Breakfast spread (included in my S$160+ package) was very local - none of the American-Continental spread - serving up local dishes such as fried rice, fried noodles and local pastries. We never did try the food at the Kelong.

There was an in-house spa but we never did check that out. There were 2 swimming pools too - one shallower for kids but I find it very strange that the 2 pools were located far from each other. We did find a "mini-zoo" on the grounds with rabbits, parrots and roosters. The water activity centre was busy with plenty of takers for banana boats and para-sailing. There was also a shuttle bus bringing guests to-&-fro Tanjung Pinang for S$10 per head though I must warn folks that aren't really many things in Tanjung Pinang to amuse you with.

Unique Quality: Comfortably rustic and service with a smile is what I would succintly summarise the place as. For folks itching to go down a few more notches and claim rustic miles, the resort also operates huts (Yasim Bungalow Huts - you can find them on Hostelbookers) about 2km from the resort, built right on top of shallow waters (ala Bora Bora) but offering much less of the earthly pleasures of Bora Bora. Backpackers may appreciate the allure of this much more.

Directions: The resort is on the eastern shore of Pulau Bintan on Trikora Beach. It is an hour journey from Tanjung Pinang Ferry Terminal. There are no surrounding villages.
