Woke up bright and early for breakfast at Fiesta!
We planned to go for a swim after that but it was raining unfortunately So I went back to the room to rest while Mel went to hit the gym.
In the afternoon, the sun was bright and sunny already so we went to the beach for a stroll before going for our swim.
Had some light bites by the pool. It was soo relaxing to just lie there and think of nothing.
Love the chicken and fries!
Coconut juice to cool ourselves down
Bought this bag during my BKK trip which is so roomy and nice to bring around!
Went for a quick swim before heading back to our room and wash up.
It was Sunday so the beach was relatively empty. Spent some quality time together just sitting on the sand and looking at the waves crashing.
Our first time having such a relaxing trip.. Our previous trips were just jam packed with places to go but this time we decided to just take it slow and just enjoy the serenity of the place, and Bintan is a really good place to do that.
Travels are always fun with you <3
Caught the sunset as well
For dinner, we went to a Japanese restaurant in Bintan Lagoon Resort.
We ordered the Teppanyaki set + Sukiyaki set to share. The waiter warned us that the portion is really big and double checked that we could finish it haha.

Desserts to end the day, and we managed to finish everything! Haha.
The next day, we decided to explore the resort abit more. There was this part of the resort which we didn’t explore the past 2 days and it’s really a hidden gem.
There was these steps to take which according to the BLR staff, couples do come here to take wedding shots because the view up there is really nice.
And it really is!!
Could just sit here and stare at the scene the whole day.
Mel prefers to meditate there.
Top of the world
Went for some last minute shopping before our ferry! We managed to buy 2 Polo tees each!
Had a quick snack as well!
Since BLR has a private ferry service, it was such a smooth and quick journey back home. Our ferry was at about 5pm, and we took the shuttle service from the lobby to the ferry terminal at 4.25pm (and reached in less than 3mins). No need to squeeze with the crowd and queue for so long to board the ferry! Haven’t had such a relaxing holiday in a really long time, and it was really fun at the same time with my favourite travel partner!
