Consisting of 5 virgin islands, 3 pristine lagoons and 13 sandy beaches, Bawah Island promises to immerse guests in an intimate and eco-friendly encounter with nature.
One of the most anticipated luxury resort openings of this year, Bawah Island is finally welcoming guests to discover the untouched archipelago.
Located three hours away from Singapore and accessible only via a short ferry ride from Batam and a 75-minute private seaplane, the new hideaway is the ultimate travel destination for genuine nature lovers.
Consisting of 5 virgin islands, 3 pristine lagoons and 13 sandy beaches spanning 300 hectares, Bawah Island promises to immerse guests in an intimate and eco-friendly encounter with nature.
To ensure the sustainability of the natural ecosystem, all 35 tented-safari suites and overwater villas in Bawah are made from natural materials like bamboo and recycled teak, while bath and shower areas are built with recycled copper. A maximum of 70 guests are allowed on the island at any instance to maintain privacy and provide undivided service.
As heavy machinery is not allowed on the island, everything is handcrafted using indigenous materials like driftwood. Both fishing and anchoring are banned in Bawah’s waters; and pesticides are prohibited to preserve the abundance of flora and fauna.
The staunch commitment to nature’s conservation is what puts Bawah Island high up on our travel bucket list – who can deny the lure of luxe natural splendour above, below, and all around you?
