March 25, 2020 Hijab Traveller 0 Comments

The dream that pays off for me is when I can travel with my mate and a pleasant travel companion. After waiting for so long, I was finally able to do this with them, a compact and fun person. Mid-March when the weather was very good, I traveled to one of the resorts that offers a pleasant and unforgettable holiday sensation, located on Bintan Island.

Bintan Island is the largest island in the Riau Islands and has many international standard resorts located in one integrated tourist area, namely Lagoi. Almost all resorts in the Lagoi area have private white sandy beaches, blue sea with gently sloping beach contours. One of the international standard resorts that I will review this time is Nirwana Garden Resort. Located on Jalan Panglima Pantar, Lagoi, Bintan.

The land area of ​​Nirwana Resorts is 330 hectares and filled with lush tropical plants. There are five properties in one Nirwana Resort area, including Nirwana Garden Resort, Mayang Sari Beach Resort, Nirwana Beach Club, Banyu Biru Villa, and Indra Maya Villa. Each property in Nirwana Resort has its own uniqueness, but in more detail I will review Nirwana Resorts Hotel.


From Batam, we started the trip across the sea using a speed boat to the Port of Tanjung Uban, the travel time using a speed boat is about 15 minutes. The journey continues by driving about 45 minutes to the resort area. Once in a fairly large lobby area, we were required to measure body temperature, a mandatory procedure performed when the Corona Virus.

Lunch at Spice Restaurant 
After checking in, we were escorted to Mayang Sari Beach Club, precisely at the Spice Restaurant. The journey from Nirwana Gardens to Mayang Sari takes about 10 minutes using a buggy. Spice Restaurant serves Indian and Indonesian specialties. In addition to dining fun, visitors are presented with a truly eye-catching view. The wide white sandy beach, blue sky and rows of coconut trees along the beach, the waves and the gentle breeze make the appetite more enjoyable.

The food menu we ordered was beef rendang, Chicken Tandoori, chicken satay, sauteed shrimp and mutton tongseng. For drinks, we order fresh watermelon juice and orange juice to keep the body healthy and energized.

As I said earlier, there are 5 properties in this area and I have the opportunity to take a closer look at the atmosphere of various resorts and their consept. Who knows, this could be a reference to your next vacation experience.

There are four room categories in this property namely Nirwana Room, Deluxe & Premiere with an area of ​​31 sqm, and suite with an area of ​​62 sqm.

Enjoy the Sunset at Calypso Floating Bar
After completing a visit to some of these cool properties, we played for a while to Nirwana Beach Club and waited until the afternoon to see the sunset at the Calypso Floating Bar. Calypso Floating Bar is a Caribbean-style bar with a Rastafarian influence. Opening hours are open from 16.00 - 10.30 with the capacity of 38 seats outdoor. Visitors can enjoy the calm atmosphere with stunning views of the twilight sky. The Sun was gone, the star has come, so its time for Dinner. Yeaaaaay

Dinner and Breakfast at Dino Bistro
Dino Bistro provides a variety of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast with international menu with buffet all you can eat. Whereas for lunch until evening, Dino Bistro provides food with a la carte serving. Opening hours start at 10:00 - 11:00 am for beverages only, and 11:00 am to 10.30 pm for food and beverage. For breakfast available at 7:00 to 10:00 am.

For dinner, we ordered several a la carte menus that are appetizing at Dino Bistro. Among them are Meatlover, Nirvana Duck Rice, Alfredo, Aglio Olio E Peperoncino and Traditional Beef Rib Soup. The food served is really fresh, nice and recommended.

Ninebot Tours & Banana Boat Activity
After breakfast we headed to the leisure center. We tried playing ninebot on a sunny Sunday. But before trying this game, we are required to wear safety equipment and listen to the instructor's directions on ninebot operations, how to start and stop. You just have to set foot on segway. When balanced, just adjust your body weight to move. Lean forward to start, backward to reduce speed. Move the handle to the right and left sides to turn.

We take a leisurely pace while enjoying the scenic beauty of the resort. About an hour we played ninebot with the Banyu Biru Villa route, Indra Maya Villa, Nirwana Garden Pool to Mayang Sari Villa. The best thing I like is when we walked around the white sand beach with blue sea.

Satisfied playing ninebot, we continue with another adrenaline-boosting game, Banana Boat. Playing and take some picture before doing banana boat activity is one of the things we do at Nirwana Beach Club while waiting the banana boat ready.
