I've stayed in Banyan Tree in Bangkok and was amazed so this probably increased my disappointment about this place.
I took my wife here for a long weekend treat expecting luxury, plenty of pampering and wonderful food - we ended up with a lovely room with plastic hotub outside (tacky but fun), no real papering (staff friendly and courteous but not brilliantly trained) and average food that doesn't work out at less than $100 for 2 WITHOUT wine. In fact the poolside food was dreadful - my chicken club sandwich was inedible (dried out chicken and soggy chips) and a pricey US$15 to boot!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Close to Singapore lies a sweep of brilliant Indonesian islands, the most spectacular of which are found in the Riau Archipelago. Bintan Island has long been one of the region's most popular destinations. Banyan Tree Bintan occupies 240 hectares on the sea front and is comprised of 72 villas modeled on traditional Balinese architecture, all beautifully located in virgin forest. The resort's Jacuzzi villas have jacuzzis built into their sun decks whilst the two-bedroom pool villas have their own plunge or swimming pools and are particularly suitable for families. Culinary variety is the name of the game with "Crossroads" offering Western cuisine in an air-conditioned or al fresco setting while the Saffron Restaurant serves Thai and South East Asian specialties. You can also dine in your own villa - simply order from the a la carte menu or make a selection from the BBQ dinners cooked in front of your eyes. The new food and beverage outlet, "The Cove," is modern and up-tempo; Mediterranean cuisine is prepared here to perfection. ... more less
