Comprising six jungle-clad islands, three turquoise lagoons and more than a dozen white sand beaches ringed by vibrant coral reefs, Bawah Reserve is an explorer’s paradise.

Located in the far-flung Anambas archipelago, to reach this off-grid retrear you’ll take a short ferry ride from Singapore to the island of Batam, followed by an hour’s flight aboard Bawah’s private seaplane. Once arrived, your days can be filled with kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding, whilst yoga classes, rainforest hikes and an infinity pool await back on dry land.

With just 36 earth conscious villas and suites, guests reside in ultimate privacy. Each is designed in harmony with the island’s scenery, with bamboo lattice walls and teak floors. Overwater bungalows are perfect for those who want to snorkel straight from their room. Dining is always a delight, with menus heavily inspired by the natural surroundings.
