FROM 25 February 2022, Singaporeans and Singapore residents can now look forward to revisiting Bintan as Singapore announces its first, and much-anticipated, Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) via sea between Bintan, Batam and the Lion City.
In anticipation of the border re-opening, Banyan Tree Group is set to welcome guests back to its Safe Sanctuaries in Laguna Bintan integrated resort with “The First Trip” exclusive offerings at Banyan Tree Bintan and Cassia Bintan.
With the new Vaccinated Travel Lane, travellers from Singapore will be able to visit Bintan quarantine-free. Pre-departure and on-arrival tests will however be mandatory for entry to Bintan and Singapore.
To ensure the safety of guests, associates and local residents, the island of Bintan and its collection of resorts will be segregated into international and domestic vaccination zones. While no inter-zone travel is permitted, international travellers are free to travel as they wish within the specified zone.
As travel gradually resumes, Banyan Tree Group invites travellers to take “The First Trip” out of their homes and rediscover the excitement of overseas travel.
The campaign has been launched in other countries across the Group as destinations reopen, namely in Thailand, Mexico and the Maldives.
From now until 27 May 2022, Banyan Tree Bintan and Cassia Bintan will be offering experiential 2-night stay packages, which are open for bookings and stays.
As an industry leader in sustainability stewardship and wellbeing, Banyan Tree Group pivots to purposeful travel post-Covid. Nestled amidst lush rainforests and a private beach by the South China Sea, Laguna Bintan will offer guests a selection of curated experiences, connecting them with nature and local culture.
Travellers can enjoy scenic sights of Laguna Bintan on a bicycle tour, discover biodiversity on a guided nature trail led by the resort’s Sustainability team, and immerse in an interactive cooking class with resident Chefs.
It also features experiential offerings, including destination dining, spa, golf, beach activities and sea sports.
