Ahh, familiar faces.
Siblings Clarence and I with Buayasg aka Jonathan.
Long lost sistahood, Silver Ang! We had reunited!
Nah, for the green-eyed monster. Give you another Clarence-chan photo.
Ever been to Bintan Lagoon Resorts? For those who said no, neither have I and truthfully we have been missing out on a slice of sweet beach paradise. I feel very privileged to be given the opportunity to travel alongside the Nuffies and special thanks to Mozaic Hotels for their warm, generous hospitality.
We departed from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal at 1.45pm. Because of Bintan Lagoon Resort's exclusive direct ferry service, it only took us 75 minutes to reach Bintan Lagoon Resort without any need to transfer or go on any land transport to get to the resort. Upon arrival we are welcomed with song and dance. Special appearance of cartoon characters was quite delightful
We were allowed to bring a plus one so needless to say, Koh is my other, better half.
Siblings, Clarence and I.
I was quite intimidated by the rows of smiling faces, which I must add that you dont see this anywhere in Singapore.
Instant access to clear immigration
We checked in to our rooms at the lovely resort and even though I wanted to just simply lie on my bed and admire my lovely room, I needed to get ready to attend the press conference held at Rice, a beautiful beachfront bar facing the beach. Bintan Lagoon Resorts is accredited with an LEED Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, which basically means for all you nature-lovers and tree-huggers that the resort uses energy-saving strategies, pollution reduction plans and efficient resource utilization whilst functioning as a world-class beach resort.
Captain planet he's our hero~!
RICE, a beachfront bar and restaurant
The press conference was at the 2nd level of RICE featuring the integration of Journeyful and Moziac hotels showcasing the use of social media and travel agency booking platforms for easy booking of your next holiday. There was also a scrumptious spread of appetizers specially prepared for the guests.
Fastest fingers first!
I have to inject about their service at Bintan Lagoon Resort. It is beyond expectation. Everywhere you go, they give you cold towel to like cool yourself down. How thoughtful especially for people like Koh who, really can perspire everywhere.
And they will never say 'No' to any of your request. Please dont think dirty at this point of time. What I really meant was their customer service.

The press conference was unlike any other ! It was short and sweet probably my favourite kind of conference. We were given a tour around the resort, visiting the beautiful villas, golf courses and various recreational activities that were available to the guests of Bintan Lagoon Resort. The highlight of the leisure centre in my opinion was the laser tag arena, that's right you heard me LASER TAG !
Your own private villa with private pool and furnishing for the price of 800k SGD where as in Singapore you might be able to afford a 5-room flat at Tampines.
It is dark and full of surprises inside ! find out more when you visit Bintan Lagoon Resort !
Me and Mr.Robert , he loves golf !

Once we were done with the tour, we headed for dinner at the open space near the beach where a grand and splendid banquet is held for the guests. The dinner was held in front of the beach with a breath-taking view of the sunset and open skies nothing like that can compare to the urban lifestyles I am so familiar with. At night, I even had a chance to light up a sky lantern ! Definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
Me and the gorgeous Miss Silver Ang we met before on previous events and it is always a pleasure to have her at any social gatherings. My Sistahood.
Sincerely friendly and helpful staff of Bintan Lagoon Resorts.
Meet Noel's Leg, Noel is a friend and tattoo enthusiast. He has an Angry Bird tattooed on his knee !
Now he has 2 Angry birds. *ba dum tss*
Koh wrote 'Ah mah take care of me and family up there, I love you'
I wrote more stuff ! find out if you happen to see my lantern in the skies. Basically, I scribbled alot of "I want Koh to marry me."
After the dinner we were escorted back to the main resort and into Silk, the resort's nightclub and popular watering-hole. Inside, It was almost as if we stepped into a posh club with modern decor and heart-pounding music. There was also live entertainment such as live bands and belly dancers. We had so many colorful cocktails and shots, everyone was having a good time !
Opp Opp Oppa Gungn... Okay you know the rest right?
I don't think i have ever seen a bottle of Bombay that big before have you?
Clarence with his "date rape" drink.It was so strong !
Me and Randy, He has huge eyes
Me with Yu Hao, he looks rosy probably because of B-52 shots we had.
Me and Wilsurn, I know, strange spelling but very much fun and spontaneous
Yu Hao:"1,2,3 look at the camera !"
Me:"Is that a bottle of champagne? I WANT !"
We went back at 2am in the morning feeling very much satisfied with drinks courtesy of Bintan Lagoon resort. The next morning, me and Koh woke up at around 9 for a fun-filled day ahead. We kicked off the day by going for breakfast buffet at the hotel followed by renting of electronic bikes to get around the island easily which was actually a good call as it began to rain in the afternoon.
The weather was lovely in the morning, not blazing hot but just slightly cloudy to make it a fine day. We walked to the leisure centre and rented our bikes and off we go !
It felt almost like this...
I tried the water activities such as the Banana Boat and Flying Fish. It was thrilling !
Suitable for almost anyone as the staff there is very attentive and when it comes to guests safety,
it is top-priority.
That is the Flying Fish. I won't spoil it for you on how to ride it so go to Bintan Lagoon Resort to know how!

At about 130pm it started to drizzle so Me, Koh and Clarence headed back to return our bikes and proceeded to have lunch. We went to RICE again as It appealed most to me and also because it has a beachfront bar so you can dine in your swimwear.
Calamari taste fresh !
Popular Lagoon Burger with emmental cheese. Koh's favourite kind of food
Highly recommended ! Scallop Tapas !
And now, for the desserts.
It was a exhilarating weekend indeed! If you love to escape from the hustling and bustling of urban city-life and arrive in a beach paradise surrounding serenity,
Head on down to Bintan Lagoon Resort !
Shiok faces !
