The Welcome Gift of the American Express Platinum Card comes with a 3D/2N stay at selected Banyan Tree resorts. It also comes with a 1 night at the St Regis/W Sentosa Singapore (which I covered in a separate blog post)
I made use of the voucher with a 3D/2N stay at Banyan Tree Bintan. We upgraded to a Oceanview Infinity Pool Villa Two Bedroom.
Checking in was pretty fast and simple. We did arrived a little early but they were quite accommodating and gave us the room earlier than expected. A nice hot towel and some finger food and drinks were served.
A map of the Banyan Tree Bintan. We got the villa 217, which I think is simply the best in terms of privacy.
A photo of the new Kelong Villa.
A buggy brings us to the villa soon after (and the buggy are necessary to travel around the resort and to the sister resorts such as Angsana and Cassia. These resorts provided cheaper food and cheaper massages 🙂
Arriving at our villa.. the magnificent Banyan Tree Bintan Infinity Pool Villa with 2 Bedrooms.
Looking backwards toward the door..
And now… looking inwards once you entered….
What a view… what a view !!
Honestly it was simply breathtaking to enter into the villa, be greeted by the very comfortable relaxing area and then the amazing infinity pool. In the hot afternoon sun, it simply looked so inviting and so pretty. So so beautiful.
Of course, the ever need for Instagram photos…
We made a video of the villa and the rooms. This is a two bedroom villa. So there are two bedrooms. One on each side of the pool. A mirror image of each other…..
The ceiling of the room is very high
And the very comfortable bed….
The amazingly big washroom area.
I am taking these back home 🙂
At the back of the washroom, is a jacuzzi. Both bedrooms have one each. So there are TWO for you to enjoy.
And there is a kitchen in the common area that comes with drinks and coffee and an area to wash up your dishes..
When night falls, it is even more beautiful..
Villa 217 is the best as it offers the best privacy in the sense that there are NO other villa above you to look into your pool area.
From these two photos you noticed I can see the pool area of the two infinity pool villas below me. Not good if you are those who need total privacy with your loved ones..
But seriously who has the time to do that.. ha ha.. so much to do in this Banyan Tree Bintan…. with its own infinity pool and relaxing areas… And yes, in case you are wondering, Banyan Tree Bintan comes with two common pools too.. they are pretty underutilized and you have no problems getting chairs etc. One is very near the beach too.
And don’t forget to try the floating breakfast or lunch or dinner.
The Banyan Tree Bintan Oceanview Infinity Pool Villa Two Bedroom is a very good stay and you can get that by upgrading from the 3D/2N voucher that comes with the American Express Platinum Card.
