Bali 3 Days Itinerary Blog

Bali has a magical charm that draws us to the vibrant island again and again – be it the surf-friendly, clear blue beaches, the exotic temples, the (thankfully!) sleeping volcanoes, the soothing green of the paddy fields, the buzzing nightlife, the exciting street shopping and basically the chill island vibe, and to top it off, affordable.

When I first moved to Singapore, Bali topped my rather long list of travel destinations. It became so reachable and at a good price too. The ticket fares from Singapore to Bali are somewhere between $80-$100 roundtrips.

We planned a quick extended 3 days weekend holiday in Bali and were keen to do the ‘touristy’ things on this trip. It was our first Indonesian holiday and we relied completely on Internet reviews for accommodation and what to do in Bali.

Day 1 – Airport to city and exploring Kuta

Even though we knew that transport to and from hotels will be more expensive, we took the chance and sign up with a random transportation company directly at the airport, and luckily they turned out to be extremely courteous, helpful and did not charge an extra rupiah. What surprised us instead was the traffic on our way to the hotel, a supposedly 15 minutes ride away end up taking 1 hour 30 minutes, though thankfully that was our first and last encounter with such madness. The rest of the trip was relatively smooth and traffic-free.

Our hotel – The Stones * – was everything that we had imagined. An offshoot of the Marriott chain, it upheld all the standards with aplomb. Generally, we are budget travellers but an irresistible deal through Booking.com * – for around SGD 90 per night – had us booking at The Stones Hotel. And boy, are we glad we did! The hotel was beautiful and the Kuta beach was right across the street. And the pool was to die for!

We spent the first day of our trip exploring Kuta. After watching a glorious sunset on the beach, we headed towards the more happening part of the street for some shopping and beer. Bali has extensive nightlife, with loud sports bars, quaint beer pubs, romantic candle-lit pubs and a wide range of eating joints. We were spoilt for choice and finally settled for the Bubba Gump Shrimp joint, mainly because we love the movie. The last thing we did before we hit the sack was to get into a random roadside pub for a beer because the local band was so good.

Day 2 – Temple run – Tanah Lot and Uluwatu plus Kecak Dance

The second day on our itinerary was for ‘temple run’. Tanah Lot and Uluwatu were the two temples we had set our eye on. Our driver advised us to head for Tanah Lot first, have lunch there and then return towards Uluwatu in time for the spectacular sunset and the famous Balinese play performed by the locals. The only problem with covering these two temples in one day was the time-consuming distance – they were at opposite ends on the island. However, since we did not have many days in Bali, we went for this mad, hectic route.

Driving through Bali were super smooth and we enjoyed the quintessential Balinese landscape of green paddy fields and pagoda-like local houses and temples as we snacked on chips and sodas. It was over an hour when we reached Tanah Lot. Since we managed to reach before the high tide, we could cross over the rocks that otherwise remain submerged, and to reach the temple. Although tourists are not allowed inside the main temple, we were quite happy to explore the surroundings with a stunning view and sounds of splashing waves against the rocks.

After a local lunch and 200 pictures taken, we headed for Uluwatu Temple. The temple is a breathtaking sight itself, sitting majestically on a cliff top amidst the crashing waves. The colors of the ocean from high up on the cliff were mesmerising.

Well before sundown, the crowd had begun to crowd the amphitheatre for the traditional Balinese dance-play called Kecak Dance. It was set against the backdrop of blazing skies of a glorious sunset. Though we enjoyed the famous scenes from the Hindu tale of Ramayana, we stepped out just before the act ended, as wisely advised by our driver. Those crucial 5 minutes saved us from an hour’s worth of traffic.

We ended the day with a dinner in the room as we are tired to do anything else.

Day 3 – Parasailing, deep sea diving and sunbathing

The final day on our itinerary was set aside exclusively for some beach time and water sports. Tanjung Benoa Beach is the place for water sports. As a non-swimmer who wants to experience the thrill of these adventure sports, I settled for parasailing and deep-sea walking. The package cost somewhere around Rp700,000 per person after much haggling. The aerial view from parasailing was as spectacular as I had thought it would be. Though the landing can be pretty tricky, overall, it’s a safe affair.

As for the deep-sea diving, after the first few daunting seconds, it turned out to be pretty amazing – to be transported amid beautiful corals and schools of colourful fish. The guides are wonderful who sense your discomfort at the slightest change in body language.

After the high-adrenaline water sports, we went in search of a beach to chill. Padang Padang beach turned out to just perfect for what we are looking for, being one of the best beaches in Bali. Clear blue turquoise water, unlike the murky blues of Kuta, greeted us, after a long, good climb down the rugged stairway, narrowing to the extent that no other person could walk alongside you. A tip is also to carry your own food because the choice is rather limited in the shacks down there. We spent the rest of the day lying under the sun and dipping in the sea. We watched the brilliant hues of the sky as the sun sank over the horizon. Sunsets in Bali are simply beautiful.

We spent the morning before our flight buying local souvenirs and an early lunch at a local Indonesian warung. We set off for the airport well before time, fearing traffic, but the roads were pretty clear early in the evening.

These three days in Bali left us yearning for more, and like all travellers, we vowed to be back. This time we actually did, within six months. And that is another tale altogether! Indonesia is truly a beautiful holiday destination, with amazing island vibes, beautiful landscapes and pocket-friendly adventures, and Bali epitomises all of these. Be careful, though, because once is never enough for Bali!

Bintan Lagoon Resort Review

I would like to share my personal review of Bintan Lagoon Resort, as I have stayed there on my trip to Bintan Island. An easy ferry ride from the Tanah Merah port in Singapore will bring you to this plush resort that stands its ground on the shores of the Pasir Panjang Beach. It is one of the most popular weekend trips for Singaporeans and also other tourists from neigboring countries who are looking for some sun and sea, relaxation, family time, good food and some fun. Bintan Island is also known for its top-class golfing courses, making it one of the most sought-after golfers’ paradise.

Bintan Lagoon Resort * boasts of 300 hectares (740 acres) of lush green grounds and, more importantly, a private beach.

Getting to Bintan Lagoon Resort

There’s only one way to get there i.e. by ferry from Tanah Merah. But in that, you have two options:

One, hop into the direct high-speed ferry ride operated by the Mozaic Ferry Lines that’ll take you straight to Bintan Lagoon Resort ferry terminal in all of 75 minutes. This way you can avoid the long immigration queues and hassles of a public ferry terminal, and enjoy a beautiful ride directly to your resort.

Two, opt for the public ferry services plying to Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal in Bintan. The ferry rides are pretty comfortable and, upon landing, you can either avail the public shuttle transfers or arrange for an exclusive ride to the resort.

The ferry ride fares differ depending on season and day of the week. So it’s best to look up the current fares before booking. I went in the month of November and paid close to S$70 for a roundtrip.

Note: The Bintan Lagoon Resort suspends its personal ferry service from December-February due to monsoons, and provides resort shuttles for guests landing at the public ferry terminal. Direct services resume from March.

We ended up experiencing both the options mainly because we booked too late and did not get tickets directly to the resort while going, but managed our return tickets via the direct Mozaic Ferry Lines. It turned out to be great! We took the public ferry on a beautiful, sunny morning in Singapore and reached Bandar Bentan Telani, and arranged for a car to take us to Bintan Lagoon Resort. It would take over an hour, we were told. Just as we were cursing ourselves for procrastinating over tickets, the busy town gave way to beautiful winding roads and red earthy scenes. The clouds had gathered in the sky, and it was one of the best car rides of my life.

Bintan Lagoon Resort Location

This modern resort is strategically located on the Pasir Panjang beach, which is approximately two hours away from both Bintan’s capital, Tanjung Pinang (73 km) and the Chinese fishing village of Senggarang (76 km), which are both major tourist destinations.

Getting around the island is easy enough, with most resorts offering to book taxis or help you rent a car for the day. You can look up Indorent Car Rent for rented vehicles, or Adventure Scooter if you want to go zipping past the countryside in a two-wheeler.

Bintan Lagoon Resort Review

The first thought that crossed my mind on reaching the resort was how big and green it was. All of 740 hectares and cradling one of Indonesia’s best golf courses, I could see why people throng to this place for short weekend getaways.

Entering Bintan Lagoon Resort, Indonesia

Boasting around 470 Indonesian-style rooms, the resort features two outdoor swimming pools, a state-of-the-art indoor gym, an indoor gym for kids, a tennis court, and two world-class golf courses – the Jack Nicklaus Seaview Golf Course and the Ian Baker-Finch Woodlands Golf Course. The fine-dining restaurants and cafes serve some delicious Asian, Japanese, Indian, and Western cuisine along with the local Indonesian dishes. The pool-side bar called the Verandah looked quite tempting as did the Terrace Sports Bar which was quite packed with many guests chilling with drinks and watching live games on the big-screen TVs, although we did not get the chance to visit them.

My friends and I headed for our lunch at Haskell’s, a charming 12-hour cafe offering food and light snacks anytime between 10:00AM to 10:00PM. Our eyes feasted on the spectacular view of the golf course, while we finally sat with some food and beer after the long journey. I settled for burger and fries, and my friend went for their buffet that was a mix of Indonesian and Western cuisine and was pretty decent too.

The buffet was close to Rp700,000 per person, while the a-la-carte menu offered various items starting from Rp150,000.

The resort rooms were quite nice; we had taken sea-view deluxe rooms and it was very refreshing to sit on the balcony and take in the view. The rooms had all the standard amenities like a flat-screen TV, four-poster bed, Wi-Fi facilities, tea and coffee makers, hair dryer, minibar, but what caught our attention was the private massage space. It was a big Indonesian-style space with pillows and formed a part of each room.

Of course, you could always get your senses soothed at one of the resort’s luxurious spas that include the Javanese and South China Seas special body treatments, along with the more common foot reflexology and neck and back rubs. They even have a massage area by the sea for guests preferring an on-the-beach experience. The prices of the treatments start from S$60 and go on up to S$350.

Tip: Should you look for cheaper spa treatments, go exploring the neighboring parts of Pasar Oleh and indulge in a full 90-minute body massage for as much as Rp500,000, although you may have to compromise on the ambience.

Though we didn’t have any time to order any room service in our one-night visit, we were comforted by the fact that it’s a 24-hour thing and kept that as the fall-back option. Some suites and private villas also have whirlpool tubs: something we read about while looking for budget rooms in the resort. Maybe, next time!

We spent a part of the evening in the entertainment zone which wasn’t the best we’ve seen. For starters, it was empty and didn’t exactly leave us spoilt for choices. You can give this a miss. Since we had a kid with us, we spent some time playing pool and air hockey. It also had a foosball table and a bunch of bikes for rent.

However, the lobby seemed to be quite the chill-out zone and was buzzing with guests simply lounging in the chairs or snacking on something from Mojo Café that serves light nibbles and fresh coffee. The reason might also be that the Wi-Fi connection is strongest in this area! You can also while away your time at the quaint shops selling souvenirs and swimming gears, though we suspect they are at a much higher price than that available outside the resort.

Tip: If you’re a golfer, carry your own equipment as the resort charges an excruciating price for both rent and sale.

Review of the Resort’s Private Beach

Stretching over 1.7 km, the private beach is absolutely beautiful. This is definitely a plus point in my review of Bintan Lagoon Resort. The white sandy beach complements the clear blue sea which is ideal for both a leisurely swim and some water sports. The resort offers packages for everything from banana boat rides, jet skiing, kayaking, snorkelling, surfing, boarding, and canoeing.

We spent a great evening picking shells, getting our feet wet, and watching a glorious sunset, after which we headed towards the beautiful Nelayan café for some great seafood. Formerly known as Rice, this dining space is right on the beach and offers a cosy ambience amid the sound of crashing waves and soothing sea wind. We enjoyed their pork ribs but the Wasabi prawns sent us to food coma, and I wouldn’t mind going back again just for those jumbo prawns.

The next morning, right before we returned home, we revisited the beach – this time to try our hands at some of the exciting land activities the resort offers, like ATV tours, beach volleyball, electric car/bike rides, and Segway among other things. Given limited time in hand, we decided on a 15-minute ATV ride through the jungles lining the beach. The guide took us on the ATV trail, which was both scary (for first-timers) and exhilarating, and left me with a very satisfying sense of accomplishment on completing it.

We took single-seater rides, which cost us around S$40 for 15 minutes, while a 30-minute ride and a 60-minute ride would cost S$66 and S$110 respectively. The costs will jump another S$20, approximately, if you go for the double seaters.

And then, just like that, it was time to go back home. As we dragged our feet back to the Bintan Lagoon Resort ferry terminal, we longed for one more night – usually the sign of the end of a wonderful holiday. There was so much more to explore within the resort itself that I’m definitely going back for more.

To sum my review up, I would recommend staying at the Bintan Lagoon Resort * as it’s a one-stop shop for all holiday activities. Irrespective of whether you are going there with your friends or family, there’s something for everyone. Although the room rates are higher than other resorts, watch out for their super deals online. It was how we managed to get great rooms at a very reasonable price – around S$88 per night per room.

There are negatives and positives for every holiday resort. My recommendation is based on direct ferry access from Singapore, nice rooms, great private beach, water sports and land activities, kids’ play area, and delicious seafood at the beachfront restaurant. So, next time you’re planning a short trip, give this destination a thought.

Top 10 Things to Do in Bintan Island

Bintan Island that forms a part of the Riau Archipelago in the South China Sea is a perfect getaway for friends and families in Singapore with its wide array of things to do. A 45-minute ferry ride will transport you to a world of white sandy beaches, clear blue sea, great Indonesian cuisine, and a bevy of outdoor activities.

The ferry ride also adds to the most important part of a holiday – the journey. And all the more because it is so convenient. There are multiple rides a day from Tanah Merah, Singapore to the three ports in Bintan: Badar Bentan Terani, Tanjung Pinang – the capital, and Bintan Lagoon Resort. The last one is perfect if you are booked into this particular resort, like I was, as the ride takes you directly there. But if you want to add a road trip to the journey, get off at either of the former two ports and take a car to your resort. I’m glad I took the Bintan roads one-way as they were spectacular.

While there’s plenty to do on the island, here’s my personal top 10 things to do in Bintan Island for you to pick from:

Immerse in history and culture
 at Senggarang Village

The history of a new place has always appealed to me. It’s like hearing the story of a faraway time and then seeing the evidence for real. Bintan, though a small island, is steeped in rich historical and cultural stories, especially due to its strategic placement on the Indo-China trade route. While being pivotal to Malay support system, the island also became home to many Chinese migrants who came in large numbers and settled here. Senggarang Village is the first Chinese establishment. The quaint village is a mixture of houses of different styles and architecture, and shops in sheds. Being an open community, the doors of most houses are left ajar and you can sneak a peek into the lives of these people. One of the nice things to do here is to take a charming walk along the village, which has quite a few temples, Banyan Tree Temple being one of the most interesting ones.

Getting there:
Located just outside the capital of Bintan Island, Senggarange Village is easily accessible via small ferry rides, locally known as Pongpong, which will get you to the other side for Rp5000-10,000 for a single ride.

Get the best shopping bargain in Tanjung Pinang

I found Bintan’s capital, Tanjung Pinang – a small and friendly town – to be a great hub for trying out local food, picking up souvenirs, and learning about the island’s culture. Shopping in this town is quite affordable as the wares are mostly local and handmade. While the concrete shops offer a diverse range of electronic goods, dried food items, and antiques, the street peddlers provide the best bargains with their colorful display of Javanese batik cloths, gems, local artefacts, and handcrafted toys.

If a shopping mall is your thing, head straight to the newly constructed Plaza Lagoi mall located in Lagoi Bay. Spread over almost 1,000 sq. meters, the contemporary retail space houses over 60 shops catering to fashion, Indonesian gifts, artefacts, and convenience stores.

Play golf at resorts and clubs

Bintan is definitely a golfer’s paradise and it is one of the top activity to do here. It has four spectacular golf courses – two in Bintan Lagoon Resort *, one in Laguna Bintan Golf Club, and one in Ria Bintan Golf Club. The Bintan Lagoon Resort by far boasts the most luxurious ones: the Jack Nicklaus (Sea View) course and the Ian Baker-Finch (Woodlands) course. Since I stayed at this resort, I could indeed see the golf courses in all their glory. Ria, on the other hand, gives Bintan Lagoon stiff competition as golfers flock to this resort which boasts of having all 27 holes at its Ocean and Forest courses designed by the ace golfer, Gary Player.

Being a spectator, I would take in the sights of the rolling green courses against the blue skies while sipping on a cool cocktail. Simply looking at the soothing landscape would take away all stress and elevate my holiday mood.

Indulge in spa and massages

Speaking of de-stressing, the one and only thing that can completely relax you are a great spa treatment. If you’re from Singapore where massages and spa treatments don’t come cheap, this is the place to completely unwind and indulge in a luxurious Balinese body massage or even a Thai massage. Most resorts offer a range of treatments to soothe the body and mind, where you would be paying for the ambience as well as the service.

A little exploration in and around the island and I found that you could get cheaper massages in the local spas near Pasar Oleh for as much as Rp500,000 for a 90-minute body massage, although you may have to compromise on the ambience.

Eat fresh and highly affordable seafood/local food

Sebung Village, the sleepy little village near Sebung River, actually serves the best seafood in Bintan. I binged on everything from lobsters, prawns, mussels, freshly caught fish, crabs, and more. Fresh, delicious, and highly affordable, the seafood gets served in restaurants built on stilts that offer you a beautiful view of the mangrove river at the same time.Additionally, the capital, Tanjung Pinang, has an active night food bazaar called Akau, where you will find a wide range of delicious local snacks to satisfy the taste buds. One must-eat item on your list should be the ‘otak otak’, which is basically fish meat cooked Indonesian style and comes wrapped in coconut leaves.The resorts also lay out quite a buffet but, of course, for a higher price. If you happen to stay at the Bintan Lagoon Resort, don’t forget to try their Wasabi Prawns.

Try out some outdoor activities like ATV

Being an island destination, Bintan does not disappoint where water sports are concerned, you will find plenty of things to do. As most resorts face the beach, you can easily avail these activities in the water sports centers. November to March are ideal for boogie boarding, wind surfing, and long boarding as the north-easterly winds give the water that perfect swell that is a surfer’s delight. On the other hand, April to October sees calmer waters that make it ideal for jet skiing, water skiing, and, of course, diving and snorkelling.

On land, you can try your hands at ATV rides, mountain biking, and adventure treks. Your resort will help you with bookings and transfers. I had the best time in Bintan Lagoon Resort with ATV and Segway rides. You can also hire bikes and cycle within the huge resort, but since I didn’t have time, I’ve left that to my next visit.

Visit the Bintan Elephant Park

Eight Sumatran elephants run the show here. They are trained to perform delightful tricks like 360-degree turns on their hind legs and then jiving to some disco music. The show timings are at 10:00 hours Monday through Thursday, and at 10:00 and 15:00 hours Friday through Sunday. Tickets are priced at S$34 per adult and S$28 per child.

The park also lets you interact with the gentle giants – you can feed them and learn about their living habits, behavioural patterns, as well as dietary habits. You can ride on their backs and take a tour through the forest, which is a one-of-a-kind experience. It would be best to avail the combo packages for ride and show, which range from S$34-39 for adults and S$25-31 for children, depending on the duration of the rides. Located in Lagoi, it’s an easy ride from your hotel as the concierge will be only too happy to book the transfers.

Sunbathe and dip in clear blue sea at Trikora Beach


The local beach destination lies along the eastern shores of the island and is a perfect spot for sunbathing or dipping in the sea. I found the on-rent cabanas dot the beach a good enough way of relaxing for a mere Rp2000 (SGD 0.20) for the entire day. The sea boasts of three different hues of blue on a clear sunny day, and you get lovely local food in the beach shacks. My beach sauntering led me to a fishing village close by, marked by the fishermen’s stilt houses built to catch/breed fish, locally known as ‘kelongs’. While it’s interesting to watch the fishermen concentrate on their chores, there’s another section that’s busy making boats from the scratch. Though camera-shy, these people are quite friendly and have a ready smile for tourists wandering close to them. In addition, close to the beach lies the Santa Maria Cave, which is home to a Mother Mary statue atop a half globe. It was apparently built by a Dutch priest in the 18th century that still sees people gathering there every Sunday to pay their tribute.

Getting there:
To get to Trikora, there are two options: you can reach it from the south via Tanjung Pinang main port or approach it from the north from the Bintan resort area. The former is the preferred and, more importantly, pocket-friendly option. It’s more than an hour’s ride either way. Once you reach the capital’s ferry station, you can grab a taxi to the beach destination, or if you’re feeling adventurous, hop on behind the bikes of the ready takers outside the ferry station. You can also hire bikes from there for the day. But make sure you settle on an agreeable price first before they ‘take you for a ride’.

Solve the mystery of the Snake River Temple

This 300-year-old temple is by far one of the most interesting places in Bintan. Also known as Sungai Ular Buddhist Temple, the Snake River Temple is accessible only by boat from Tanjung Pinang and looms up suddenly at the mouth of the Sungai Ular or the Snake River. The structure has a mysterious aura surrounding it, and its walls are covered with paintings of the horrors and torture methods of Chinese hell.It is also a popular destination for Chinese pilgrimage, and the ride is made interesting by the winding river lanes through the mangroves that instil in you a sense of adventure. If paganism and traveling off-the-beaten-track are what fascinates you, this one’s worth a look.

Marvel at the Grand Mosque at Penyengat Island

A short boat ride from Tanjung Pinang, the Penyengat Island houses the then-ruler Raja Haji’s formidable stone fortress. Amid the tombs that dot the entire island, the citadel stands right in the middle and offers a spectacular panoramic view of the entire island. Take your selfies and family clicks at this viewpoint. Some of the tombs belonged to people who helped shape the history of this place e.g. the Bugis Princess who received the island as her dowry and the poet whose work somewhat forms the basis of modern Bahasa Indonesia. The highlight of the island, however, is the Sultan of Riau Grand Mosque which was built with a curious mix of egg white and lime as cement.

I found Bintan Island absolutely delightful, with its beautiful palm-fringed beaches, delicious seafood, great shopping spots, rich cultural heritage, the quaint little temples, and smiling, friendly faces. Easy accessibility is yet another advantage for this value-for-money getaway. So for the next short holiday, drop by the beautiful Bintan island. It certainly won’t disappoint and you will find yourself busy with all the activities it has to offer. I’ll definitely be going back one more time.
