New ‘naturally-lux’ retreat is now inviting explorers onto the island
Bawah Island, one of the most anticipated openings of 2017, is now calling for guests to be the first to step onto the untouched archipelago.
Bawah is now inviting its first explorers to discover the rare ecosystem at this ‘naturally lux’ retreat in the heart of the Indonesian Anambas. The ultimate hideaway, Bawah Island is just three hours from Singapore and accessible only via a short ferry ride from Batam and a 75-minute private seaplane.
Previously uninhabited, Bawah is a marine conservation area where ‘nature provides its true luxury’ across 5 pristine islands, 3 crystal clear lagoons and 13 beaches. Bawah allows a maximum of 70 guests at any one time, with 35 eco-designed suites and overwater bungalows providing guests with a private oasis amongst spectacular scenery – enriched with Bawah’s holistic and personalised approach to service.
Bawah Island has been developed to inspire guests to get reacquainted with their ‘true nature’ by inviting them to explore the islands and leave with a renewed sense of purpose. Immersing in experiences harmonious with nature, explorers can encounter flourishing species of corals, turtles and iridescent schools of fish, or step foot in Bawah’s primary forest that has never been cut or burnt.
Bawah’s 35 eco-designed suites are enveloped in lush scenery, with 21 Beach Suites offering breathtaking sea views, 11 Over Water Bungalows giving stunning dawn to dusk vistas and 3 Garden Suites shrouded by idyllic, natural scenes. Each accommodation features a beautifully appointed bedroom, spacious bathroom and a relaxing outdoor living area with incredible views across the lagoon.
Within Bawah’s crystal clear waters, all are welcome to experience a variety of water activities or for those wanting to slow down their time, Bawah’s beach-fronted infinity pool invites a cool, gentle dip. Bawah’s holistic wellness centre, Aura, houses a spa and a yoga pavilion, providing complete mind and body programmes designed to enlighten the senses so one can explore, or relax, with a rejuvenated state of mind. Aura will also offer personalised yoga, pilates, meditation, and reiki sessions from sunrise to sunset.
The Tree Top restaurant at Bawah will serve bespoke Asian-fusion cuisine with locally-grown ingredients alongside a curated drinks menu to showcase authentic flavours. The lower deck of the restaurant offers an alternative relaxation spot for diners to relax as they take in spectacular views of the ocean.
The Bawah Island experience, which can be booked now from USD1,960 for two people per night, includes an Eco-designed accommodation for two to share, round trip transfers from Singapore via Batam (car, ferry and 75-minute private seaplane) and daily meals (breakfast, lunch and ala carte dinner) and non-alcoholic beverages.
