My family had a great time, but we find the place expensive. The ferry ride, the food, the sports activities cost quite a bit of money.
The ferry ride took about 1hr 45 mins from Singapore; not 75 mins as advertised on the ferry service website. Maybe 75 mins is possible with the bigger catamaran, but the website should be more upfront with this information.
We had such a fantastic time at Banyan Tree, Bintan. Our villa was beautiful and service by housekeeping was exceptional. Staff all throughout resort were very attentive (as in couldn't do enough for you) and facilities were lovely. A high recommended place for a very relaxing break conveniently located near Singapore.
I came to this resort for 2 nights as part of a holiday in Singapore. I booked via the internet and rang to confirm I would be picked up at the ferry terminal. I suggest pay the extra to travel Emerald class on the ferry as it makes things so easy. Everything went smoothly with my booking. The hotel staff were all helpful. In some cases the english language was difficult for them to understand and repeats were necessary. We really enjoyed the breakfast venue and the beach shed for drinks in the afternoon. In the villa some things were slightly damaged such as the arm on a chair or a tap fitting, but this did not detract from the beautiful surroundings. The villa is spacious and it was fun to travel the resort via our own golf cart. The beach is divine in the late afternoon, and having a private pool suited us as well. Overall a very relaxing place and I recommend it if looking for a get away from Singapore.

Paradise!! We had an amazing time and our gorggeous chalet was right on the beach - Starfish 4 at the end. Lovely and chilled. Choice of restaurants to walk to or quick shuttle ride to.
Highly recommended, didn't want to leave!
