Bintan, Nirwana Gardens

We went to Bintan recently for a short chill out break with the girls with
Holiday Bagus.

Nirwana Resort Hotel was having this Kids Wanna Have Fun Promotion,
when we went where the girls were entitled to have a free lunch buffet
during our stay there. Currently this promotion has been swapped to
Amazing Fun @ Nirwana Gardens.

Our Superior Room >Clean spacious, nice cool aircon, garden view.


This spread greeted us during the free buffet breakfast..





That's fragrant coconut rice with chicken rendang, and all the other
condiments for the nasi lemak. It was gooood! :drool:




The kids club has a daily female staff attending to the guest's children.
For the days we were there, the staff followed the timetable very closely
which i like. Cause in some resorts, they change programmes at their
whim and the children who have been looking forward to specific
programmes featured, get disappointed. The crafts done here are
also carried out at no extra charge! Only the T-shirt printing is offered
at a cost with the help of a very cheerful young chap, who was a hit with
all the kiddies who visited. After the kids club closes for the day at 5pm,
the children can resume play at the nice playground or make sandcastles
at the relatively clean beach.... followed by a nice cool swim, a sumptuous
dinner and head back to the room.

We had kelong seafood dinner on one of the nights and boy was it
delicious! The surroundings were calm, breezy with the sound of
waves and the afternoon sky slowly setting... the view is breath-taking...
If we were without the kids, it would've been a tad more romantic tho. :P

Meals can be in a set meal or order from ala carte depending on your
tummy capacity for the day. But do be warned that you shouldn't order
too much even with an empty tummy. We tend to get greedy when we're
hungry... The food's really filling and the servings are rather generous.

Below are shots of the kelong bar in the afternoon, the sweet and sour
black garoupa (deep fried) and the chicken tofu veggie dish.


Uhh... actually there were chilli crabs and tom yum soup but i guess
me and hubs could've lapped it all up before the chance to take nice
snapshots of them. :wink:

This is how it looked like at sunset. Dun go too late. Later too dark to
enjoy any sights... :roll::wink:
