Send help now.............. Today Mr. Bostock was almost arrested. Not for a minor road traffic incident like me, oh no he went for bust. Picture this. Happy Lainey and David all packed, tranfered in posh limo to the ferry port, speed check-in, magazines bought, images of white sand, swim up bars, skimpy girls giving massages (David), lying by a …
We needed a little sun and relaxation after all that shopping (errr, I mean trekking) so we arranged a 4 night stay on a little island a hop, skip and a jump from Singapore. I spent a considerable amount of time searching the web trying to find a place that met all my criteria (not too hard to get to from Singapore, boutique size, simple but upscale, beautiful beach, warm water, no motorized water sports i.e. jet skis, great food, good service, George Clooney at my beck and ...
I was speaking to the driver on the way to the airport about how people perceive the world, fear it even. He thought it was brave for me to be a female travelling on my own. And while it is, and there are potential dangers that naturally come with it, it got me thinking about how much we fear everything. We are taught from a young age - and for good reason - to fear strangers. And with that, came the ingrained belief that when strangers show you acts of ...
... parks, zoos, etc) but the city itself has no heart. Even many of the buildings in areas like Chinatown have that fabricated Epcot feeling. Being here made me miss the grime, colour and smells of India and Sri Lanka. Now don't get me wrong, I knew what I was getting into (I say let 'em crash!) and I enjoyed myself the best way I could in a place where $15 for a beer is considered normal... However, I did enjoy being back in a big, modern, impersonal city. ...
... kiss without being dead drunk. I was such a bad kisser, and I was thick-skinned enough to sluttily ask him to teach me how to kiss properly. His hand then gradually moved into my hair, and it was like any other movie, where the 2 characters sit in the far corner of a cosy coffee shop and kiss passionately without caring about anyone else. It was the only time he really touched me, and it was because I explicitly asked for it. I am now finding myself wondering what would happen if ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Angsana Bintan
When we where out looking for a hotel to stay at on our honeymoon, we saw Angsanas High five-promotion. That made it possible for us to stay in their biggest suite (Angsana Suite) for 100US$/night, except weekends where we 'only' got 50% discount.
After spending 5 days in Singapore we wanted a place to relax and unwind Angsana Resort and spa was the perfect place. On arrival we were upgraded from a deluxe room to deluxe suite which had a double balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Every night the oil burner in our room was lit with an explanation of the different oils used.and the room was kept spotless. The staff at this resort are the most friendly and professional I have ever come accross. nothing was too much trouble( and they were not doing it in the hope of getting a tip , like so many European hotel staff) We visited the sister hotel Banyon Tree but personaly didnt feel that it was as nice as the Angsana, far too secluded and impersonal for us, in fact quite a few of the guests came to our pool during the day. The pool is lovely with two towels placed on each sun lounger, water constantly being brought round together with iced melon balls all free of charge.
I went here with my boyfriend and we loved everything about this place. We actually reached the resort at night time, and even without sunlight, we could feel the atmosphere in the air. It was a gorgeous place. The hotel is superb and that includes all aspect of it - from the room, the pool, the layout, the location, the spa and the decor. I would have to simply applaud for their customer service. The only glitch to their perfect customer service is their front desk. It took us exactly half an hour before we are able to check in, or even to make some queries, it took us about 15 minutes before we were served. In addition to this, everything is charged in U.S dollars, thus, it becomes cumbersome for those who are not familiar with this currency- we had to use a calculator to make calculations for certain things. Despite all that, everyone else were friendly and helpful. This place is really worth all the money I'd paid.
We just got back from our honeymoon on Bintan Island.
Do yourself a favour, run don't walk to the Angsana Resort and Spa Bintan...
Wonderful beach which was nice and quiet, great pool, fantastic staff, amazing food (you must have the beach BBQ) and beautiful spa treatments. Cannot fault this place and would recommend it to anyone - have never been so relaxed in my life. Oh and we got upgraded to a suite. Go!
Seriously Angsana is just perfect. My wife and I looked at all the options for travel to Bintan for a stopover and Angsana won out and thank god it did. It was relaxing, the staff are amazingly helpful and friendly, and the whole atmosphere just says "relax and chill out". The prices are a bit more than other places in bintan but still very very reasonable, minibar and things like that which are usually really expensvie were quite reasonable ($US3.50 for a beer). The bar has a happy hour every evening where you can have two cocktails (like daiquiris, bloody mary, etc) for a total of about $US9 or $US10. Really the only people I would caution are familys as it is not really geared to kids - familys should try one of the Nirwana Gardens resorts or maybe Club Med.
We stayed at a suite which was very large and commanded good views.
The pool was excellent and the spa treatment was a true enjoyment (Try the treatment for couples!).
The service was also very good and the food was nice too.
We also visited a restaurant in the Banyan Tree Resort nearby with free transport provided by the hotel.
The only problem was money as the price for accommodation, spa and food were pretty high.
