When you get off the Bintan ferry go straight up the hill and veer right after passing the tennis courts. The busy little town of Tanjung Pinang is off to the left so a walk in the opposite direction will get you a good night's sleep at a hillside hotel overlooking the Dampak Strait.
Unique Quality: The staff and management are very friendly. They accomodated my request for a nice view and to pay in Singapore dollars. They offered me free samples of desserts from the restaurant kitchen immediately after check-in. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and include private bath/shower. I usually do not include hotels in my travel tips but this one deserves special mention.
