Good food? Check. Comfy villas? Check – the driftwood palaces are all elevated from the ground to take advantage of the tropical breezes and stunning views – almost like treehouses!
Pulau Pangkil is only available for rental as an island, but it takes only 10 people (from $3,450 a night) to rent the island. This includes all meals, use of all facilities, and transport from Bintan (you’ll have to settle the return ferry tickets from Singapore to Bintan yourself, though).
The island and staff are kiddie-friendly – staff on the island are available for babysitting day and night, and they’ve got toys for some bucket and spade action by the beach too.For water activities, they have small-sized life jackets for the kiddos.
