According to many online reviews, the service, cleanliness and facilities far exceed what was expected of a cheap, 3-star resort. In addition to the 2 outdoor jacuzzis, there is a swimming pool, seaside spa and beachfront restaurant. For those with kids, there are also nightly movie screenings.

Bintan Agro Beach Resort is located on the East coast of Bintan, so the journey there is slightly longer (1h 45m by ferry). They’ve got all the usual beach resort frills like hammocks, seaside rooms, spas and more.

Do note, however, that there is only one restaurant (Sun Moon seafood restaurant, Chinese cuisine) — although reviews on the food are decent, the price-wise they seem expensive. Also, I read quite a few reviews complaining about the resort being crowded with tourists groups, so if you want a quiet getaway, this may not be it.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $104 via Agoda

Most notably, Bintan Lagoon Resort has 2 championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicholas and Ian Baker Finch, making it a must-visit for golf enthusiasts. From reviews, the rooms are quite “meh”, but the communal facilities are great.

Since it’s part of the Nirwana group of vacation villas, all guests are entitled access to the various facilities in Nirwana Gardens, including the popular infinity pool. If you’re not content lounging around on hammocks, you can pay for land and/or sea tours and dive trips (extra charges applicable).

Cassia Bintan

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $116 via Agoda
  • TripAdvisor rating: 4/5 from 538 reviews
  • Part of the Laguna Bintan Integrated Resort
  • Features an 18-hole golf course

Cassia Bintan describes its resort as “part hotel, part service apartment”, so expect more of an AirBNB instead of villa vibes. It’s like a beachfront condo home, with even a full kitchen so you can cook if you want.

There are 6 restaurants to choose from, but of course, you dine on your own dime. But like most resorts, there are a bunch of free daily activities for guests. At Cassia, you can play soccer and volleyball, go jet skiing and for yoga.

There are chargeable activities like snorkelling and ATV safari rides too.

Mayang Sari Beach resort

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $157 via Agoda
  • TripAdvisor rating: 4/5 from 705 reviews
  • Access to all Nirwana Gardens facilities (part of Nirwana group)

As with their beach club, Nirwana group describes their other resort property, the Mayang Sari Beach Resort, as rustic as well. The difference is that this one is slightly fancier, featuring cottage-style chalets, each with a private garden- or sea-view veranda.

All Nirwana group resorts come with access to their many facilities and amenities, so if that’s what you’re after, you can go for the cheaper, above-mentioned ones. If you want a more comfortable room, you can try Mayang Sari Beach resort — many reviewers agree that the rooms are generally nicer and cleaner.

The Residence Bintan

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $158 via Agoda
  • TripAdvisor rating: 4.5/5 from 327 reviews
  • Infinity pool, guided nature tours, and more facilities

The Residence Bintan has a 4.5-star TripAdvisor rating with many raving reviews of how clean and fabulous this resort is — perhaps this justifies its relatively expensive price tag?

Although considered more expensive on this list, the Tanjung Pinang resort is still quite affordable and you can get a night’s stay for under $200.

There’s an infinity pool for the ‘gram, and compared to the other more well known resorts, there are much fewer tourists. Sounds perfect for some quiet time.

Angsana Bintan

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $162 via Trip.com
  • TripAdvisor rating: 4/5 from 2,241 reviews
  • Part of the Laguna Bintan Integrated Resort
  • Features an 18-hole golf course

I’ve personally never been there, but from the photos, everything does look pretty upmarket. It’s not as “atas” as the Banyan Tree (which is also in the same group), but it looks better than Cassia.

So like all the resorts in the Laguna Bintan Integrated Resort, you can participate in free activities like sports, trekking and yoga, or top up for water sports like snorkelling and jet skiing.

ANMON Resort Bintan (glamping)

  • Cheapest price (at time of writing): $177 via Agoda
  • TripAdvisor rating: 4.5/5 from 73 reviews
  • Glamping concept, rooms look like teepee tents

Anmon Resort Bintan is an up-and-coming concept resort. Several of my friends have been and all recommend it. Google it and you’ll see images of large, white tents, but don’t worry — it’s not really camping.

Instead, it’s “glamping”, whereby it’s just a tent-inspired facade. The interior is like any other hotel or villa. It’s fully air-conditioned and has proper bedrooms and bathrooms. That’s why “glam camping” mah — it’s all the camping photos, but without the sweltering heat and creepy crawlies.

One thing to note: many reviewers say the resort restaurant is expensive. For cheaper meals, head to the nearby Marine Park cafe.
