Beach getaway near Singapore you didn’t know about

Beach holidays are absolutely the best! Would you agree?20180506_075831-01[1]For someone who’s been living their life at the busy metro, it’s always a welcome relief to spend a day out in the sun and let the sea wash your worries. Feel the sand squish slowly through your toes as you gaily walk down the shoreline, hear the waves, and feel the breeze. What an ultimate relaxation!20180506_074114-01-01[1]20180506_073837-01-01[1]Often a hectic week, we would always want to have that breather. Yasss?
And so for a short-getaway, let’s not head too far away. My colleagues and I decided for a stay-cay in Bintan Lagoon Resort. Below is a short clip of our BLR stay-cation:

Here’s a quick intro, BLR remains the biggest integrated resort on the whole of Bintan Island, even after 20 years. Offering private golden sand beach that stretches nearly 1.5 km and 470 Indonesian style resort rooms that sprawled over 310 hectares of manicured gardens (really!) and only 75 minutes away by ferry served by the Mozaic Ferry (click link to book ferry ticket online) The service departs from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal twice daily.20180505_172414-01[1]Stepping onto the island after the ferry ride, the first thing you’ll notice is the wide expanse of beach. (If I could just drop my stuff and run to the beach, I would!) lol
But I needed to pass through Immigration before anything else. haha! :p20180505_172429-01[1]The best part of it though was their own personal ferry terminal and Immigration. Say goodbye to long queues. Hurray! Walk pass the bridge and it’s already the arrival area and your passport will be stamped in no time. 
Such a hassle-free getaway from Sg! And then one can either take a coach to the resort lobby or take a short trek (not really that far) and you’ll be welcomed with a local dance. Don’t forget to take your welcome drink at the bar after check in. Yuhooo! The check-in process is incredibly easy, you can count on the BLR staff to take care of you every step of the way.

Start your day with a breakfast buffet:20180506_065422-01-01[1]20180506_072950-01-01[1]And then off to explore the resort.
Without much words, let my photos do the talking:20180506_075659-01-01[1]
