Details

Enveloped by lush tropical greenery and azure blue ocean, Bawah Reserve rests in sheltered carefree seclusion 160 nautical miles (300km) northeast of Singapore in Indonesia’s remote Anambas Archipelago.

Surrounded by clear turquoise waters, blue lagoons and coral reefs, this pristine and previously uninhabited marine conservation reserve caters to outdoor adventurers with an appetite for indulgence as well as paradise seekers looking for relaxation.

Bawah offers the true meaning of sustainable luxury.

Your journey begins in Singapore by limousine pick up from your hotel, residence or airport. A travel coordinator will then escort you by ferry and car to Batam Airport, where you board a private Sea Plane (an amphibious, twin engine aircraft that can land and take-off both on land and on water). After an 80-minute flight you will land in the beautiful lagoon at the jetty of Bawah Reserve.

Feel your worries float away, as you step off the plane and breathe in the fresh salty sea air. It is all about you now. Resort personnel will take care of you every step of the way.
