Expect perks like complimentary activities for all ages and discounts on golfing and spa treatments.
Now that a Vaccinated Travel Lane has opened up for those traveling by sea between Batam, Bintan, and Singapore, the Banyan Tree Group is welcoming holidaymakers from the Lion City back to its Laguna Bintan integrated resort with new promotions at Banyan Tree Bintan and Cassia Bintan. As part of a global campaign encouraging travelers to take “The First Trip” out of their home countries since the pandemic hit, the two properties are now offering special two-night packages for stays until May 27, 2022.
At Banyan Tree Bintan, the benefits of booking a pool villa through the deal include welcome drinks, daily breakfast, and set lunches for two, on top of return transfers by car from the Bandar Bentan Telani ferry terminal. Additional perks comprise a complimentary bicycle tour, a guided walk along a nature trail led by a local ranger, and an Indonesian cooking class, as well as 15 percent savings at Banyan Tree Spa and a 25 percent discount on visitor rates at the fairways of Laguna Golf Bintan. Prices start from S$990 nett per night on weekdays and S$1,090 nett per night on weekends for the resort’s Rainforest Seaview villas.
Aimed at the young and young-of-heart, nearby sister property Cassia Bintan offers contemporary apartments with living and dining areas plus a compact kitchen, providing more flexibility for families and groups of friends. Cassia guests who opt for The First Trip package will enjoy many of the same privileges as their counterparts at the Banyan Tree (except for set lunches, welcome drinks, and the spa discount), while receiving daily breakfast and return coach transfers from the ferry terminal. Rates begin from S$290 nett per night on weekdays and S$390 nett per night on weekends for the resort’s one-bedroom apartments.
Pre-departure and on-arrival tests will be a must for quarantine-free entry into Bintan. To ensure the safety of guests, hotel staff, and local residents, Bintan’s resorts have been segregated into international and domestic vaccination zones, with travelers from Singapore free to move around within designated areas.
