In just a 45 minutes ferry ride away, we are whisked off to Cassia Bintan for a much needed couple getaway! Upon stepping into Cassia Bintan, we are greeted with the lively, vibrant and colourful setting!
1. Catch up on your beauty sleep in your own comfy apartment
Top on everyone’s holiday checklist would be to catch up on our beauty sleep and recharge!
Here’s the ocean view one bedroom apartment which we stayed in! It was awesome!! The pillows and mattress were so soft and fluffy, I can just stay in bed the whole day!
Cassia Bintan’s apartments comes complete with cooking facilities so you can even whip up a meal in the comfort of your own space! There’s even a living room area with a couch where you can just binge watch movies and chill.
PS: They even have one loft style units featuring a mezzanine area perfect for a slumber party! For the ground floor units, you even have a private garden where you can have a private BBQ party and dance your way straight to the beach~
2. Enjoy a mookata party in the comfort of your room!
If you are feeling lazy and just want to chill out watching the TV, simply order a mookata set into the room! That’s exactly what we did! Watching blockbuster movies and enjoying the mookata!
Life’s good!!! HEHEHE!!! CHEERS!
3. Foam Party by the pool!
And this was one of the highlights of our trip!!! THE FOAM PARTY!!
It was our very first Foam Party experience and we had so much fun! It’s literally a mega bubble bath brought outdoors complete with music and all woohoo!
Cassia Bintan’s signature foam party starts every Saturday at 3pm till about 6pm in the evening! So grab your swim gear, loved ones and party at the foam pool! Don’t miss out on all the fun!
4.Take a stroll by the private beach and catch the sunset
Another must do in Cassia Bintan would be to catch the sunset by the beach!
This time round, we just wanted to chill on this trip so we decided sunset will be easier to catch than to wake up for sunrise haha!
Quality couple time spent by the beach! The beach always brings out the goofier side of B and me! I love how the rhythmic crashing of the waves by the shore seems to bring all the stress away.
There’s this photogenic Instagram worthy spot by the beach that you should not miss too!
5.Indulge in a BBQ feast at Xana Beach Club
Dining by the beach alfresco style! With an array of grilled seafood, meat and sides, we stuffed ourselves silly while enjoying the sea breeze by the beach.
For me, I was a big fan of their satay skewers and I had tons of it! B spammed their steak and seafood too! This hearty meal is definitely worth our holiday calories!
6. Speed through the waters on a jet ski
I heard from my friends Cindy and Audrey that they really enjoyed this jet ski experience during their stay there! Go try it out too!
Although we didn’t get to try this as it was fully booked when we were there, we will definitely be back for more hehe! This looks really fun!!
Remember to book early at the activities centre to avoid any disappointment!
7. Embark on a fun and exhilarating ATV adventure
Another activity that we would love to try the next round has got to be the ATV adventure! We saw lots of people zooming around in their ATVs and it looks so fun!!
8. Enjoy a tea break at Market 23
After a whole morning of fun under the sun, take a moment to enjoy a relaxing tea break at Market 23 too! I ordered the apple pie with a scoop of ice cream at the side. Can’t do without sweet treats! There’s even foosball available to play at the lobby area at Market 23!
There’s also a mini mart at Market 23 where you can get some snacks to chill out by the beach!
9. Release turtles into the sea
If you are lucky during your stay, when it’s the turtle release period, you get to release the newly hatched turtles into the sea! 😀 They look so adorable! And best part of all, we all get to help play a part in saving the lives of sea turtles and wildlife conservation.
We were not as lucky this trip so we did not get to do so. But it’s alright! It’s the perfect reason why we should go back again haha!
Psst!! The peak hatching and release periods are from mid-May to end-June, and from early August to end-September each year. So, turtle lovers might want to plan your trip during these periods.
10. Enjoy a romantic lunch with a view at The Cove
Did you know that Cassia Bintan’s guests can also dine at Banyan Tree and Angsana’s restaurants? It’s so convenient as they are all linked via the private beach 😀
We were whisked away via the buggy to The Cove, located in Banyan Trees Bintan. This white and blue nautical theme restaurant has the best view overlooking the sea! Don’t miss out on this restaurant for a romantic lunch with your loved one.
Savour the delectable Mediterranean cuisine with a glass of mocktail in hand. All the dishes were nicely plated, thoughtfully planned out and the taste was right on point! Service was also very prompt and thoughtful, which added extra brownie points to the unforgettable dining experience!
I love satisfying meals like these! The food was yummy, the view was awesome and ambience was right on point!
11. Book a day tour to explore Bintan
We also highly recommend checking out Gurun Pasir Busung when you are in Bintan! Simply book a day tour to explore Bintan island. We booked ours via Klook! You can use my referral code [6UY54] for $5 off your first booking 🙂
Gurun Pasir Busung is definitely the place to go for awesome photos by the sand dunes. Although it was drizzling during our trip there, we still took tons of photos with our self timer hehe!
Brides to be, this is also an awesome affordable venue to consider for your pre wedding couple photoshoot!
