After a 12-month soft opening period, Bawah Reserve, a luxury private island eco-retreat in the heart of the Indonesian Anambas Archipelago, has officially opened. Situated 258 kilometres northeast of Singapore, Barwah Reserve transcends a traditional holiday experience, where barefoot luxury meets environmental conservation.
With an unrivalled dedication to marine conservation, Bawah Reserve is a haven for the endlessly passionate and curious adventurer and discerning eco-traveller, allowing guests to foster their creativity and unplug from their hyper-connected lives.
Founded in 2017 by Tim Hartnoll and designed by esteemed Sim Boon Yang, Bawah Reserve is an ecologically sound destination with the preservation of the island’s natural beauty of paramount importance. An untouched paradise comprising six islands, three azure-blue lagoons and encased by 13 pristine beaches, Bawah is a project of love designed to integrate guests with nature.
Retaining Bawah’s mission of providing a luxurious, authentic travel experience in a sustainable and community-enriching manner, all 35 eco-designed tented suites boast either crystal lagoon or romantic sunset views or gardens cocooned in natural foliage and flora, each of which are handmade with materials such as bamboo and recycled teak.
There are four suites from which to choose, the 70-square-metre Garden Suite and Beach Suite, the 105-square-metre Overwater Bungalow and the 150-square-metre Deluxe Beach Suite.
Immersing in experiences harmonious with nature, guests are offered a plethora of dream land- and water-based itinerary activities including hiking through untouched rainforests; swimming at secluded Coconut Beach; windsurfing, kayaking or paddle boarding between the five islands; or snorkelling among parrotfish, clownfish and turtles. The resort also offers inclusive treatments from Bawah’s holistic wellness centre Aura Spa including yoga, Pilates, meditation, facials and massage.
