We departed from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (Bintan Lagoon Resort Counter) at 1.45pm (singapore time). It only took us 75 minutes ferry ride to reach Bintan Lagoon Resort.
The programme was kicked off with a press conference at 331-seater Rice, a beachfront bar and dining outfit which is situated on a sublime stretch of white sandy beach and offers a bird's eye view of the South China Sea and neighboring Riau islands.
Mr Robert Ramey, Managing Director of Mozaic Hotels & Resorts giving the opening speech!
Miss Jezreel Tan from JOURNEYFUL giving the closing speech!
The next event is a short tour of the Angsoka Villa unit #1 which is selling for SGD 800,000.
The 5-bedroom villa is equipped with a small private pool.
All the blankets on the beds are being folded up into different cute little animals. This is just one of them!
After all the sightseeing we had on the buggy tour , it was soon time for dinner as everyone were hungry. We had a beautiful seafood dinner at the Golf Course.
After our stomach are well fed, we had the opportunity to release Sky Lanterns, an emblem of blessing or hope. Releasing them is akin to bringing forth good luck and is symbolic of worries floating away. Each sky lantern costs about S$10++.
The last event for the night is a party at Silk, Bintan's clubbing hotspot which features live music from Tuesdays through Sundays.
We also managed to enjoy the performance of bartop dancing 'BINTAN STYLE'.
We try not to get ourselves drunk as we wanted to be ready for the fun activities on the next day. Our first programme for the second day is to have breakfast at Kopi-O, which serves Asian and Western fare in both a la carte or buffet style for all 3 meals.
I am glad to be the first to try out their javanese beach massage for 45 minutes which costs S$42 nett. This is my virgin massage outdoor!
Before checking out, I also tried out their All-Terrain Vehicle ride. I rode through the jungle trail and managed to get my feet muddy. Ouch!
