Bawah Reserve

Bawah island, Indonesia

Surrounded by clear turquoise waters, blue lagoons and coral reefs, this pristine and previously uninhabited marine conservation area caters to outdoor adventurers with an appetite for indulgence as well as paradise seekers looking for relaxation. Bawah offers the true meaning of sustainable luxury.

The Bawah narrative is nothing short of a love story: an island paradise, at risk of destruction by illegal dynamite fishing, rescued with a desire to protect it and see it to flourish. The owners have created Bawah with a passionate commitment to preserve it as an ecological utopia. The 6 islands are now a designated marine conservation area, making it illegal to fish in its waters. The design and build of the resort was planned to avoid damage and erosion, and prevent the destruction of the mature island flora.


Enveloped by lush tropical greenery and azure blue ocean, Bawah Reserve rests in sheltered carefree seclusion 160 nautical miles ( 300km ) northeast of Singapore in Indonesia’s remote Anambas Archipelago. Please note — Round trip transport package from Singapore is $700 USD per person. Your journey begins at with a luxury car from your home, hotel or airport in Singapore, to Tanah Merah Ferry terminal. Here you will be met by a member of the Bawah team and escorted on a short ferry ride to Batam, Indonesia.

Fast-tracked through immigration you will be introduced then to the travel coordinator, who will guide you through the rest of your journey. Starting at the private lounge in Batam airport, where you will then take a 80-minute flight aboard the private plane, an amphibious plane, with 2 pilots, that takes off on land and then arrives on water, in the beautiful lagoon right in front of your suite. Your exciting journey will take around 4 1/2 hours. On return you will leave Bawah at 13:30 ( Bawah Time ) then back to Batam for the ferry which arrives in Singapore at 16:45pm ( Singapore Time ).


Bawah Reserve offers 6 islands, 3 lagoons, 13 beaches, on which 35 comfortable and spacious villas are located, of which 21 are located on the beach, 11 on the water and 3 in the garden. All buildings are built from natural materials, including bamboo.

Overwater Bungalow

For a romantic getaway or dream honeymoon, upgrade to a beautiful Overwater Bungalow. Exclusively accessed by ironwood walkways, 11 Overwater Bungalows ( 105 sqm ) are blessed with splendid vistas over the lagoon and outer islands, with six suites catching the sunrise in the east, and five perfect for a sunset in the west.

Sliding doors open into an air-conditioned interior adorned with aqua-hued seascapes and jungle murals. Steps lead from a private verandah and open-air sundeck straight into the tropical waters below. Perfect for enjoying your very own spectacular sunset with a cocktail from your own bar or a personalised gourmet dining experience.

Garden suite

Get slightly back from the beach amidst sun-dappled jungle terrain, enjoy a luxury safari-style tented Garden suite ( 70 sq m ). Wake up to the dawn chorus and the cheeky whistles and hoots of the black minah birds as they cavort in the Indian almond trees around you. Step out of your verandah onto the sandy forest floor and you’ll find that you’re only footsteps away from the beach. The suite’s tented ceiling canopy stretches across the veranda for a shaded daytime reading spot on the five-metre daybed. Open the canopy to the elements or close the sides as you prefer.

Singapore architect, Sim Boon Yang, was tasked with creating a holistic design, using sustainable sources of bamboo, found and recycled woods, and “A design ethos of optimum comfort while also minimising energy requirements and having a light impact on the environment.” Melding contemporary taste with indigenous craftsmanship, he has delivered exquisite, exotic structures built on footings that require minimal interference with the natural terrain. His inspiration for the soaring, organic curves of the roofs of the public pavilions, which cascade down the hill, was the shape and silhouette of the islands themselves, presenting a refreshing alternative in architectural style and five-star flair.
