Be welcomed by a cascading waterfall feature enhancing the entrance of the beachfront restaurant as you arrive. Your appetite inkling begins with the welcoming long bar fronting the restaurant, suggesting the perfect gambit for a glass of icy cold beer, or perhaps their mocktails and house pours.

Bintan Lagoon Resort’s Activities and Haskell's Cafe Review

indonesia bintan lagoon resort all terrain vehicle review
When my kid was younger, it was always Bintan equals to Club Med or Golf; it is just another boring place without these. Boy, how wrong was I! I have to admit the last time we visited Bintan was probably more than a decade ago, and thanks to the good people of Bintan Lagoon Resort, my family and I had the chance to rekindle the lost memories we left behind in the sunny tropical island.

Our recent Bintan Lagoon Resort Staycation is not as boring as you think. Our Day 1 kicked off with a exhilarating Land Activity, trying out their ATV ( All Terrain Vehicle ) operated by Action Challenge. We opted for a Single Seat Quad Bike (Rp 665,000 for 30 minutes) and a Double Seat Quad Bike (Rp 910,000 for 30 minutes), with a guide taking us into the forested area after our safety briefing. *100,000 Indonesian Rupiah is approx USD 7.65 or SGD 10.60.

Our 4-wheeled quad bikes took us travelling on an adrenaline-pumping ride through dirt tracks and jungle trail. Although the sweltering heat was unbearable, the ride was surprisingly cooling. The heat only kicked in when we stopped for our photo shots.

bintan lagoon resort atv single quad bike review
The ATV activity was kinda interesting for me since I have never been on a motorbike. The two guys were also having a ball of a time especially Jonathan who has the quad bike all to himself. This is definitely a must-do when you are in Bintan. Don’t worry if it is your first, it was ours too! There will be a clear safety briefing and basic instructions on how to handle the four-wheelers. There will also be an ATV Staff accompanying you for the adventure.
