BINTAN

Club Med, INDONESIA

Bintan Island is Indonesia’s best kept secret. Club Med’s all Inclusive Resort feels like a luxury retreat, while still catering for families with so may services and activities for the little ones. It’s the best of both worlds.

Booking is easy as the Club Med website allows you to book everything from your flights, transfers and accomodation in one place making the holiday seamless and it is great for budgeting. 

What’s included? Food at every restaurant, breakfast, lunch, dinner and morning and afternoon tea. Alcohol including cocktails and spirits. Endless activities, all day long for every kind of holiday maker and water sports. Kids club 4 and up is free and runs from 8:30-5pm and 6:30-8pm. And free wifi.

What’s not? Spa treatments, pics by the professional photographer, high end alcohol like Moet etc and motorised water sports. And a baby sitter/nanny costs about $6 an hour. That’s about it!

What I loved about my experience here the most was the safe and secure resort on a private beach. There is no hustle and bustle and no pollution. It felt really tranquil. But then there are endless activities for both the kids and adults, so you can choose to do as much or as little as you like and have the holiday you like. 

Actually I take that back. The food was the absolute stand out. Undoubtedly one of the best quality food and service I have ever had at a resort. I can’t rave about it enough. The way that they looked after Paul and his intolerances we don’t even get in Australia. 

Harvey and Chloe have had a brilliant time and had a couple of days here and there in kids club or with a sitter and Paul and I did activities or absolutely nothing by the pool. Club Med have made it so that it is possible to have some down time when holidaying with kids. But in all honesty we missed them after half an hour and found ourselves playing in the kids club too or taking them down to feed the fish at the beach. Making memories 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed my coverage of the resort over the last week. And as we wrap up our holiday here in Bintan, please ask any questions you like. 

We have adored our stay! Thank you for having us Club Med!
