    Pro: Went to Nirwana Gardens Beach Club (Huts, 2 rooms to 1 hut) for my first trip to Bintan. Rooms are clean and big enough for 2 or 3 pax to stay comfortably in. Toilet and floor are clean. Towels provided are clean. The air con is working very well and seems to be new too. Staff relatively friendly, can speak and understand English. The best thing about this place is, there's a beach attached to it and it's almost deserted most of the 2 days we were there. I believe this is because most of the guests went to the beach at the Nirwana Garden Hotel. The sports centre is very nearby so accessible if you want to play Banana Boat, Ski Jets but you'll need to go to the Hotel area for ATV. The Club is also very accomodating and allowed us to extend our stay by 1.5 hours with no extra charges.

    Con: Don't buy anything from the cafe at the beach club. It's about 10 times more expensive than the prices in Singapore. A bottle of 1.5litres mineral water costs $10 and fruit platter at $8. Don't go for the packaged massage sessions offered by the beach club. We went for 1 at SGD 75 each that includes massage, choice between sampan or private beach, ride to shopping area and lunch. In the end, we travelled an hr plus of dizzy and nausating dangerous ride to some other resort. Massage was ok but we weren't given a choice of beach or Sampan, we were directly taken to the Sampan, no notifications at all! Lunch consisted of measly nasi lemak at 4pm! We were also told that the package doesn't include shopping when it actually does. If you want massage, just go to the nearby shopping area where they offer $50 for 2 hours massage.

      My first advice on going bintan, is to ask if you can pay them in SGD and if allowed, bring SGD with you to pay for the room, meal, massage etc. They quoted me SGD amounts for whatever items, but when they bill me in INR, they used a pretty bad rate and thus my bank converted to a higher SGD.

      This resort in Bintan is nice. The bus ride only some 10mins. And you can take their resort bus just 1 hour before ur ferry departure time, if you change for the boarding pass on the day before, at the hotel counter.

      We book their Resort Hotel rooms which is just next to the swimming pool and reception. If you book their other chalets or villas or the beach chalets, you can still use their facilities here. Some of them are linked by the beach and the furthest (and most expensive) can be linked by their golf buggy or fetched by bus/car on request. [I have already decided that if I am going back again, I will go for their beach chalets which is much cheaper, and then use the same facilities.]

      Their pool is so nice, with the view being perfect. From a distance, the pool looks like it stretches out to the sea. From within the pool, I could stay at the side and face the nice sea.

      The massage is standard, at a slight premium, but their packages are just right for a destress holiday. The body massage is located at another location and they will send you by car. The shoulder massage and hair spa and mani/pedi, is located near the reception.

      Their 2 restaurants near the reception serves buffet for dinner and around $38 effective. So for our 2nd night dinner, we went for Korean promo set dinner and its only around $15 per person.
