One of Bintan’s most popular resorts has been given a facelift. The 473-room Bintan Lagoon Resort has been refurbished to the tune of nearly $16 million, and boy is it looking good. The rooms now come packed with flat-screen TVs, designer teak furniture and the bathrooms within are decked out in marble and classy fittings. What’s more, the resort’s 57 villas are ideal for getaways with friends, corporate groups and family as they come furnished with kitchenettes, barbecue areas and generous living areas; and the five-bedroom Angsoka Villas has the added indulgence of a private pool. If you book your holiday a month in advance, you’ll get 28 percent off regular rates. Log on to www.bintanlagoon.com to book.
