Aroma River Spa, a world-class spa with local prices, is located at Mutiara Beach Resort, on Bintan's east coast. It can be visited either as a day trip out of Singapore, or as a half-day trip from any of the Bintan hotels. The spa setting is rather unique, on stilts in a mangrove river, with direct access to a private white sandy beach. After the treatment, spa guests have the possibility of enjoying a tasty local meal at the spa restaurant and some bargain shopping at the spa boutique. The spa uses exclusively Taman Sari natural products. Two-way land transfers can be arranged. Open every day, 10am till 6pm.

Don't expect luxury, but back to the basis in life... no air-conditioning, no fan, take a very short sampan ride, walk thru wooden planks, go into a hut looking into the woods, changing behind curtain, being massaged while insects buzzed around your ears, showering behind curtain and the water draining into the river below you...... This is Aroma River Spa.... More

Very rustic, laidback and charming environment for a massage on the mangroves. Love the private massage huts. Place is well kept and clean. The massage process is of quality. Tried the package with lunch, had woodfired pizza and nasi padang, both very fresh and delicious. Only setbacks are the mosquitoes buzzing at your ear, occassional waft of stagnant water and...

We stayed at Aroma Day Spa many years ago and always returned due to annual business travels in Singapore. The place is now called „Aroma River Spa“ which is – in my opinion - a better name because it sums it up pretty much perfectly. The romantic private overwater bungalows for treatments are located on a river right next to... More

Mutiara beach guesthouse is the only place where you can experience kampong life with some confort (wifi, electricity) near Singapore. Aroma River Spa, in Mutiara, is a hidden pearl, a complete sensual experience : the lazy flow of the river below, the breeze in the trees, a friendly and experienced staff, everything is an invitation to relax and let worries...

Welcoming staff. A very colourful, visual treat amidst tall green trees, movement of the flowing river below you, dancing of white clouds. orange flags, cinnabar woody rooms.You hear bird songs and the sound of the breeze gently floating around you as the spa therapists attend to you softly kneading a tired body. Scents of sandalwood, Indonesian rose, pandanus fill you,... More

A very friendly massage parlour just a few miles away from our hotel, it's in a small town with friendly staff and it's by far much cheaper than the spa 's in the hotel. The staff were very friendly. Highly recommended

The staff had offered excellent hospitality with perfect arrangement for the trip. The aroma massage & body scrub (120 min) are perfect and are greatly value for money with free round trip transfer & delicious lunch. My friend & I will definitely return upon next trip to Bintan

An always returning guest - speaks for it! Have been here probably nearly 10 times! Usually Im a guest of the nearby Guesthouse, but also worth a trip from one of the resorts on the island. They collaborate with Taxi companies who drop- and pick you up/off. I like the atmosphere in the little overwater treatment bungalows. You actually have... More

The service provided could not be any better. Pick up and drop off from and to hotel. Amazing two hour treatment (massage and body scrub) in a small hut over the mangrove. Relaxing mangrove boat ride followed by a tasty local lunch. Finally, a relaxing lay down by the beach to summon the three plus hours of amazing experience. Well... More
