Made up of six is­lands, three la­goons, and 13 beaches, which is just 160 nau­ti­cal miles north­east of Sin­ga­pore, you could say that Bawah is a yet-to-be-dis­cov­ered desti­na­tion that will soon be on the lips of trav­el­ers con­stantly search­ing for un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences. Stun­ning lo­ca­tion aside, Bawah boasts an all-in­clu­sive lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence for its guests. It is the only re­treat in Asia to in­clude all per­son­al­ized din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, spa treat­ments, out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, and trans­port via its new am­phibi­ous sea­plane. Even more im­pres­sive is that if you are com­ing from your ho­tel or res­i­dence in Sin­ga­pore, or even Changi Air­port, Bawah will pick you up with a chauf­feur­driven car, while a travel co­or­di­na­tor will es­cort you by ferry to Batam In­ter­na­tional Air­port. Fi­nally, guests will board the pri­vate sea­plane for an 80 minute jour­ney to the fi­nal desti­na­tion. Upon reach­ing, beau­ti­fully de­signed over­wa­ter bun­ga­lows and suites by Sin­ga­porean ar­chi­tect Mr. Sim Boon Yang will greet you, which are sur­rounded by ei­ther clear turquoise waters or lush green­ery, re­sult­ing in a fa­mil­iar­ity that calls to mind Mal­di­vian or Ba­li­nese prop­er­ties. To fully ex­pe­ri­ence Bawah’s mag­nif­i­cence, all you re­ally have to do is show up.
