During our stay in Bintan, Indonesia, My husband and I chose Angsana Hotel to live for one night.
After we arrived at Bintan Ferry terminal, staff from Angsana welcomed us and let us take a short rest in their lounge, which is just at the terminal hall.
Then we took the Angsana shuttle bus to hotel, and it takes about 15 mins.
The minute we got off the bus, a staff strike the gong in front of the hotel hall to welcome us.
It’s not peak season, but there are still many tourists in the hall busy with check-in or check-out procedure. A friendly staff guided us to the sofa. Then welcome drink and dessert were served to us.
Hall is connected with dinning area. That’s where guests have breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Corridor is very long, since there are many rooms in this hotel.
Finally, we reach our room.
Room is nice and cozy. And the best part is ocean view balcony.
From where, you can see the beautiful sea, beach and swimming pool.
Because when we arrived there, it’s already lunch time. And we were starving, so we had lunch there.
We ordered Mi Goreng (stir-fried noodles) and Nasi Goreng (stir-fried rice). They served us with a kind of cracker first. My husband likes it. It also contains a special bean. As you can see, the lunch is really in big portion. Both of us like the chili sauce. It is special, because it also has sour tomato flavor. Hmmm, food is good. But considering the price, it’s not that good.
After lunch, we took a walk to the beach.
Walk through the garden first, then swimming pool and got to the beach.
It suddenly became cloudy after lunch.
It was supposed to be many water activities, but got called off due to bad weather. We were so looking forward to participate in releasing the sea turtle, but we were just told that activity already finished.
walking along the beach or lying down on the beach is quite relaxing.
Then we went to the activity room to have some fun.
We almost tried every game. My husband was so surprised that I, as a Chinese, don’t know how to play table tennis. 🙂
They also have gym, but due to our schedule, we didn’t go there.
When we went back to our room in the evening, we received this letter and small gift from the hotel.
Breakfast is buffet, including eastern and western food.
They have congee,
pancake and waffle,
Soto ayam, (a kind of chicken soup, and I add in glass noodles and some vegetables)
bread and tea,
Indonesian special snack,
freshly made omelette,
and fresh fruit.
Breakfast is nice to me. But if let me rate the food, I will probably give it 3.5 out of 5. Just compared to the cozy room and warm service, food is not that great.
Before we left, my husband tried their special banana coffee.
If you are going to Bintan, you can take Angsana Hotel into consideration. We had great experience there.
And in the morning, we found some monkeys fighting/playing just in front of the hotel.
