We stayed in the same resort about 10 years ago. It was such a memorable trip as the resort was better than expected at that time. Even after 10 years, everything is upgraded. The pool is big enough. The friendliness of staff is better. The only thing that does not meet my expectation is food quality. The breakfast menu should be upgraded. The juice bar is good. My suggestion is to add a healthy section or a salad bar with only 1 a la carte menu. The variety is not that important from my perspective. I am personally tired of the same buffet every day. Lastly, I appreciate a staff member whose name is Sofyan. He's proactive and adept in providing information at the right time. I recommend banyan tree bintan for a family with children with age difference - 11 years apart. I love a resort which is quiet and separated from the public. I've had such a great time with my family during the stay in BT. Hope to be back soon.

Lovely hotel in the middle of nature”
PRO: friendly and professional staff. Great nature atmosphere, feels like in a real forest. Room is well maintained, great views of the beach. Love the spa! CON: prepared for bugs, insects and ants. All restaurants are really overpriced, even charged $$$ bfast for 3rd & 4th kids 4-11yrs stay in the same room that has bfast package. No kids activities for 4-7yrs except swimming pool. Options are kids club in neighbour hotel Angsana catered for under 4yrs, or chargeable water activities for above 7yrs.
Dear Jennie, Thank you for taking the time and posting your experience with us. I am delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and that we were able to exceed your expectations. We are most concerned to read your disappointment on food and beverage price. Please allow me to share with you that we have made some adjustment recently. It is something that we constantly are monitoring and I can assure you that we remain in line with the other hotels in the area. It is unfortunate that the information of our 101 Things To Do was not properly conveyed to you during your stay with us to give you almost endless options of activities to enjoy in our resort. I am looking forward welcoming you back here in Bintan and hope that we will have addressed some of the issues by then. With Best Wishes, Alpha Eldiansyah General Manager

We went to celebrate an anniversary, and Banyan Tree was the perfect choice for that event. We booked in villa BBq dinner which allowed us our own time and space for celebration. Staff is little unfocused and dispread for tue purpose, and the baggy service shall be faster Otherwise, stay in this place is impeccable.
Dear Eva, Despite the buggy service, which I have briefed with respective HOD. Happy anniversary to you and your husband!! I am so delighted that you chose to celebrate such a special occasion with us. We hope to have you back in the near future and take part in more of your life's celebrations and milestones.

Heaven on earth!”
I have visited many 5 star hotel around the world and I have to exclaim without a shadow of a doubt Banyan Tree takes the cup!! From the polite and courteous staff to the spacious and luxurious rooms with spectacular views of the rainforest and ocean. It honestly felt like we were in paradise. If an amazing breakfast is a must for you, then I would highly recommend their breakfast spread which has something for everyone!! I will definitely be coming back to Banyan Tree Bintan!

Stunning location and amazing service”
Our one night at Banyan Tree on bintan was expensive but we felt that overall it was worth the cost. Beautiful views, amazing food and the service was excellent in every interaction we had with the hotel. Definitely recommend for a special occasion weekend escape!

Not a resort but a Chalet for family with kids”
Unhelpful staff Poor service Constant black out, easily more than 10 times This place was not up to our expectation. First of all, their buggy service was only available for check in and check out. This information was not known to us until we called in to request for buggy service the next day. The room was also really basic, it was more of a Chalet than a resort. If you are expecting a resort's standard of service, you will definitely be DISAPPOINTED. We also skipped our breakfast on the 2nd day because it was raining heavily and they DID NOT DELIVER THE umbrella as requested even after 1hour?!?! When we requested for buggy to check out, they said we had to wait for 15 to 20min. The buggy failed to arrive eventually and we walked to the reception under the rain. Lastly, throughout our stay the room kept having multiple black outs within a short span of 2hours. If you are okay to shower in the dark then this resort will definitely be for you. For the price paid, I definitely will not return to this place again.
Dear Charlene, Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. All your comments are essential to educating our staff about good and bad service. We will ensure your feedback will be given to all. Furthermore, I will personally supervise that all your other complaints are addressed that everything will be in order on your next visit. We look forward to welcoming you back then. With Best Wishes Alpha Eldiansyah General Manager
Weekend getaway from Singapore”
Staff & service was fantastic. That is perhaps the most intangible factor in Banyan Tree Bintan. They made up some special decor for our wedding anniversary & service were prompt and helpful. But aside from that, I can’t really any reason to go back again. The rooms are really dated, in need of a renovation. While the bed was really comfortable, the furnitures were old and you can see stains on the granites, marble and window blinds - just a sign of aging. The in-room jucazzi looked so old that we didn’t even bother to use it. Breakfast was mediocre at best for a hotel of such standard. Very limited facilities within the hotel and food was rather overpriced for the quality. I must give a 5 star to the hotel staff for the quality of service they give but the management must truly look into giving Banyan Tree Bintan a newer look.
Excellent customer service”
To the entire Banyan Tree staff team, I am extremely impressed with my stay and the customer service you all rendered. From the excellent transfer, extremely convenient & enjoyable check-in process, complimentary birthday deco & cake, excellent call service, fast buggy service, excellent dine-in service, wonderful spa treatment and the overall courtesy of the staff to me and my partner. A huge thank you to all of you for making this trip memorable and we will definitely come back! THANK YOU! Best Regards, Ruzaini
Definitely will come back!”
- Lovely resort with lots of greenery - Spacious room with very thoughtful and beautifully packaged amenities - Very friendly, helpful and attentive staff - Delicious cuisines at the restaurants - Gorgeous view at spa villa
Kind an old place, small pool in the terrace is dirty. Both pools are not interesTing. But resto Treetop is tasty. Staff friendly but making big mistake of charging our kids each 1,7 mio. Manager and the staff are not communicating well.
Dear Andi, I am sorry to read that we have not meet your expectations. Unfortunately our villas - build in the traditional Balinese style - can feel old due to their unique design and are also very much exposed to the jungle environment. Whilst this makes us very special and unique, it certainly also creates challenges for maintenance. May I apologize for our inconsistency and at the same assure you that we do have a strict upkeep program in place, trying to avoid inconvenience to our guests. We are indeed very proud of our associates and your praise reinforces that they very professional and hospitable – the team and our unique location are indeed the key assets of Banyan Tree Bintan. I am sorry for the miscommunication issue, I have personally briefed the respective HOD for further action. It is my hope that you reconsider and will stay with us again, so we can proof that your experience is not the norm but rather and exception. Sincerely, Alpha Eldiansyah General Manager
Great service, friendly staff that remember your name and room number, great room and pool with high privacy
Dear Chun, We greatly appreciate that you took your valuable time to share your encouraging review about your excellent recent stay with us at your Sanctuary for the Senses. My team and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future in order to make your stay one more occasion to remember. Cordially, Jose Luis Barrera Hotel Manager
Excellent choice for a quick break from Singapore”
Very nice facilities and amenities. Our villas was amazing. Perfect for relaxation. Excellent service wherever you go. Breakfast selection is fantastic. Lunch and dinner also good, but a bit pricey. Will definitely choose to stay here again when I come back and stay in a two-bedroom villa.
Dear Gregory, Thanks for the kind review. There is no greater pleasure than to welcome our guests back. With Best Wishes Alpha Eldiansyah General Manager
Very good place!”
Staff are very friendly and service was top notch. Villas are situated not too near each other so there is privacy even in the outdoor balcony / jacuzzi area. Furniture / interior does look worn but is still very spacious and comfortable. Great ocean view from the room, and spa was fantastic. Pool and beach were good too and due to the smaller size of the resort, these are never too crowded and you can always find a chair to laze around on. The moment you settle down, staff will immediately bring you towels and cold bottles of water - once again, top notch service! There is buggy service to get you around anywhere in the resort too, so you need not walk to get anywhere. Food choices within the resort were limited though, same for the in-room dining menu. Overall, worth the price and makes a very good getaway!
Wonderful resort with some amazing stuff”
My stay was quite short but the staff made sure it was a memorable trip for us. The place was very clean too.
Dear Jagadeesan, I am very happy to read that you had a great stay with us and am especially delighted with your comments of our team. We are indeed very proud of our associates and your comment reinforces our belief into their professionalism and dedication. I am hope to welcome you soon back to Bintan.

Weekend couples getaway”
The wife and i were there for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. It did not disappoint. The villa we stayed in has an excellent view of the beautiful sea. The bed was very comfortable. Staff are exceptionally polite and friendly. Breakfast selection was decent and food wasn’t too bad. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. Downside? Everything here is pricier. Good for that occasional indulgence.
Pricey but enjoyable experience”
Tranquil and enjoyable experience, albeit a little pricey. It is not near to the street foods in the south, so you should expect to spend almost most of your stay in the resort compounds. But Banyan Tree Bintan is linked by the beach to the Angsana Bintan, and that provides more food/restaurant and leisure options such as jetski-ing and parasailing. All in all, an interesting option for a short retreat for travellers from Singapore, although there might be better options in Singapore if you don't mind being close to the hustle and bustle.
Great location with a real holiday feel, with great staff. But over priced- always advertised at at 60 to 70 % off? Wine is 4 times the price you would pay in Jakarta, as is the food. It's not practical to wine and dine outside the resort so you have little option where to eat We had a villa with a private pool (SPA) but it was way too cold to use (not heated). Wifi didn't work very well. The share holders must love this place.
A wonderful "second honeymoon" for my wife and I”
Even though it was low season and the rates were already discounted, a stay The Banyan Tree never comes cheap. Not only that the on-site dining options were also expensive. That said, my wife and I had wonderful "second honeymoon" in our own sea-view villa. The building is nestled in a tropical forest on a steep slope overlooking the Straits of Johor, a beautiful view to relax into. The staff were all friendly and professional at the same time, which is no mean feat. The restaurants were three, with two small pools. There was access to a small bay and a beach with soft sand, which is great for a relaxing holiday. For those who are willing to stomach the cost, I would recommend it highly.
Great service from start to end”
We stayed for one night to celebrate the wife's birthday. From the start of the stay till the end, we had excellent service from the reception to the dining to the room service. We were hoping to enjoy the destination dining at the Rock but unfortunately, it was raining and we ended up with room service instead. The food was excellent but could be pricey for others. The hotel even extended our late checkout till 4pm as an exception for us which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend a repeat stay here.
