Summer in Bintan Indonesia - Singapore getaways

I've been dying to dip myself into the waters of a 'real beach', so 3 weeks ago was a dream come true after so many years. I am was a beach bum. I was browsing my Multiply page the other day and was surprise about the fact that almost every 2 months we were on the beach - when I was still single. Deym. I want that again.

We had an overnight summer excursion last  Apr 30-May 1 2012. Thank God some of our beach buddies are already working here in Singapore, so friends Rocky and Karlo went with us to Nirwana Gardens Resort in Bintan Indonesia. It was our first time to visit the place.

Bintan is a 55 minute ferry ride from Singapore. Its quiet near so Bintan has been a common beach destination for residents of Singapore. When taking the Public Transport: Take the MRT to Tanah Merah MRT (for our case we took the cab going to TM as we are meeting our friends there), board bus 35 and take it to the last stop at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (12 mins).  Although it was raining when we left Singapore but Mr Sun met us as soon as we arrived Bintan. Thank you.

That's my daughter and I, lower left is a welcome signage upon arriving to Bintan, lower right is a photo of our ferry

The Gang! Manang Jiji took the photo

   We were actually welcomed by local dancers. I luv it. :D Our rooms were not yet ready when we arrived so we decided to use our freebies while waiting.

Archery

 The boys, Marv and Karl went for an air dive. :D neah, flying fox.



Daddy! Weeeee!
We didnt know what to do and where to go after these activities. It was very hot as well so we thought of going back to the hotel to take a rest. There was only one room available at the moment so we invited the couple to join us for a while. We had a nap.

Too bad I wasn't able to get photos of our room. We were all tired and wanted to just doze off.



And then of course, when we woke up, we had our chance to enjoy the beach.

and spend overtime in the pool.


It was fun! See you again beaches friends. :D


Blessings ♥
