10 Reasons Why We Love Club Med Bintan

Club Med has always been on my dream vacation list for a while. I want to experience how it’s like to be in a luxury all-inclusive resort. All meals included, free flow of drinks including wines and cocktails, a variety of fun activities, late night parties, nightly live shows and supervised kids programs, just to name a few.

So, I’m glad that we finally experienced the awesomeness of Club Med Bintan two weeks ago. It was one of the BEST resort vacations ever!

Do you know that Club Med Bintan was recently named Best Resort for Families in Asia by Trip Advisor?

Perhaps the best thing about this resort is its close vicinity to Singapore. Just an hour of ferry ride out from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, and it can be easily booked online. As a quick weekend getaway or an impromptu family trip, Club Med Bintan is a perfect choice.

Here are TEN reasons why we love Club Med Bintan.

1. The moment we arrived, we felt pampered and at ease

The moment we arrived at the resort, the Resort Manager and the GO Team were standing at the reception entrance to welcome us with warm towels and beverages.

First impressions count. The resort has given us the BEST impressions the moment we arrived – that made us felt completely pampered and at ease.

Info: At Club Med, ‘GO’ means Gentle Organizers. They’re a group of young, energetic and enthusiastic Club Med crew who run all the activities in the resort, including the kids club and sports.

2. The spacious and comfortable guestroom


The guestrooms are divided between small 3-storey buildings that are designed with exotic woods using local crafts. Between modernism and local architecture, its design is pretty unique.


Our room is a Deluxe Sea View room with a spectacular view of the China Sea. The unique part is the little window alcove specially designed as the children sleeping area. Edison was so thrilled to have his own private space.


One thing that is worth mentioning is the daily surprises from the housekeeping crew. They folded the towels into animals and decorate them with flowers. I really appreciate their attention to details.


3. The beach is exceptionally beautiful


Club Med Bintan is known to have one of the most beautiful beaches among all the other resorts in Asia. With palm trees swaying gently in the breeze and a beach that stretches for 8,500 feet of fine white sand, it is indeed an island paradise.



The water is crystal clear and the beach is exceptionally beautiful. Edison loves dancing on the beach. The sand is so soft and clean, he just couldn’t stop playing with them.

4. Enjoy a variety of sport activities 

Most of the sport activities do not require pre-booking (except mountain biking, sailing / kayak and snorkelling). So we just need to walk-in to join. It’s the perfect chance to improve our existing skills as well as discovering a whole new sport.





The GOs are qualified instructors, so guests can enjoy some personal coaching from them. Our favourite sport activities are the golf and archery. There is a driving net, putting green, chipping green and practice bunker (obstacles dug in the ground and filled with sand).

Info: Some of the sport activities have dedicated time slot for parents and kids (i.e. circus school and archery). Do check the timings on the Club Med Bintan Island Information Sheet that will be given to you on your arrival.
