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 have been so lazy today that Tony has been bored, for the very first time this whole holiday. Eating, except we did forfeit lunch, drinking, snoozing on sun beds, swimming in the sea and pool were all we could manage. Thought about more snorkelling, sailing, cycling or going on a nature walk but managed none. Helen happy today because she could rest her back, and she managed to listen to some plays on her MP3 ...
... and perched in the Mangrove trees directly above our heads! - we had to turn the boat around when a monitor lizard was spotted in the river ahead. Very exciting! Got back to the hotel in time for lunch and then more chilling by the pool and in the ...
... and back to hotel after catching very busy train. Luckily realised we were going the wrong way before we had gone too far. Taxi to airport arriving about 6.30. Freshened up in toilet (beautiful at Changi). Had a look at the shops then had a toastie and hot choc. Met a Hawks supporter who lived in Thailand and he was a total ***********. Plane leaving here at 22.55 Looking forward to seeing Julia and Leigh !!! Bye Singapore ...
... my all-important sunglasses. So, third stop at the airport (after toilet and coffee, of course), was duty free shop for some new sunnies. On the plus side, we made all flights and connections in plenty of time, so some things went right. The flight was smooth and uneventful. Both of us were planning to choose the chicken, only to be informed that they'd run out, so fish with hot sauce it was. ...

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.
