Bawah Reserve is a unique resort, where sustainability has been placed first and foremost in the resort’s design, construction, and operation. The vision is to protect and enhance the environmental value of the islands and surrounding marine environment, empowering and enabling the development of local communities on neighbouring islands. The islands of Bawah are ecologically important due to the presence of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna on the islands, coral reefs that support a wide variety of marine life, and mangroves between the terrestrial and marine environments.
No arrival to an island is as thrilling as via seaplane. Your journey starts in Singapore, where you will be collected from your hotel, airport or residence by our chauffeur. Our travel coordinator will escort you by ferry and car to Batam International Airport, where you will board our private seaplane for a smooth 80-minute journey, landing on Bawah Reserve’s spectacular lagoon in front of your suite.
Enveloped by lush tropical greenery and azure blue ocean, Bawah Reserve rests in sheltered carefree seclusion 160 nautical miles (300km) northeast of Singapore in Indonesia’s remote Anambas Archipelago.
Surrounded by clear turquoise waters, blue lagoons and coral reefs, this pristine and previously uninhabited marine conservation area cater to outdoor adventurers with an appetite for indulgence as well as paradise seekers looking for relaxation. Bawah offers the true meaning of sustainable luxury.
Every detail is taken care of. From your spectacular seaplane journey to endless experiences above and below the water, the Bawah offering has been carefully curated to ensure that your stay with us is nothing but perfect. Experience kayaking, snorkelling, sailing, treks through the tropical forest, local cuisine cooking classes, picnics and dining on private beaches and open-air cinema nights to name but a few.
