An oasis of sheltered seclusion 160 nautical miles northeast of Singapore in Indonesia’s Anambas Archipelago, Bawah Reserve is a tropical retreat comprised of six islands, three lagoons, 13 beaches and 35 stand-alone suites.
It is the only resort in Asia to include all spa treatments, guest experiences and transport via an amphibious seaplane. Without a care in the world, Bawah guests are invited to be as active or as tranquil as they wish, paddling around the reserve to explore all the islands by kayak or stand-up paddleboarding, sinking into indulgent open-air spa treatments, dining by candlelight with toes in the sand and champagne in hand and drifting off to slumber to the peaceful sounds of the lagoon and jungle.
