What do you think about Bintan Lagoon Resort Launches Breezy Saturday Jazz Brunch @ Nelayan?

The cool contemporary and smooth jazz sounds of Spyro Gyra, George Benson, Lee Ritenour, Incognito and top jazz artistes are now reverberating at Bintan Lagoon Resort.

Sprawled over 300 hectares of beachfront gardens in the tropical paradise of Bintan, Bintan Lagoon Resort is the premier lifestyle destination for leisure, golf and corporate meetings & incentives with its own ferry terminal.

Expat Choice headed over to Bintan to check out the property, and we loved the experience from the Jazzy brunch to the restful lazy Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning poolside experience before returning to Singapore on the 1pm Sunday ferry - which arrives and departs directly from the resort.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

A 75-minute direct ferry ride from Singapore, Bintan Lagoon Resort boasts 450 contemporary rooms, suites and villas complemented by an impressive range of 14 wining & dining options, nine function rooms and a dedicated MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions) Centre. For leisure, there are two world-renowned 18-hole golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Ian Baker-Finch comprising the Bintan Lagoon Golf Club and a slew of over 50 sea sports and land activities including a day spa.

Staged at Nelayan Beachfront Restaurant, the Resort’s signature dining outlet, the Saturday Jazz Brunch features a sumptuous range of dishes orchestrated by Nelayan Chef M Rafi, Senior Executive Sous Chef Adli Nizam and Resort Manager Suhairi Idris. Boasting stunning views of the South China Sea and a relaxing island ambience, the Jazzy Saturday Brunch promises chilled out vibes for an idyllic Saturday away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The musicians are world class at Nelayan, but the musical hit of the day was the saxophone player who, we are told was discovered on the streets of Batam, busking for his keep. This performer is totally entertaining and had the guests humming tunes well after the jazz sessions had finished.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

“The amalgamation of a spectacular display of food and smooth jazz music with a backdrop of the cool colours and breeze from our beach is an absolute refreshing indulgence – there is no better way to start the weekend off in just an hour away from Singapore on our very own direct ferry. Guests can come in for the day or stay the night,” remarks Mr Gerald A. Hendrick, Senior Vice President of Resort Venture and General Manager of Bintan Lagoon Resort.

Gerald is a hands-on sort of guy making sure the Resort is running at its best from morning to night. There's a lot going on here from dining, to accommodation, activities and of course golf to the max, although on this trip we didn't opt to play the course but instead to visit the driving range and work up a sweat over 50 or so practice balls.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

The brunch features gourmet dishes such as Steak Tartare, Butter Shoyu Grilled Scallop with Salsa Verde, chilled fresh seafood and sushi, seasonal cheese, Lobster Bisque, an Egg Station, artisanal breads, Slow Roasted Prime Beef Rossini & Seared Foie Gras, Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb, Hyderabadi Briyani of Duck, local Bintan delights such as Laksa Lemak Ikan Tengiri, Beef Rendang, Prawns & Quail Egg Sambal, a Waffle Station and more.

Bintan Lagoon Resort

Each course/dish will be delicately matched with champagne and wines from well-known wine regions such as France, Australia and Italy. The resident Orlin Band got toes tapping and bodies swinging to its lively repertoire of well-known jazz hits. Plans are in the pipeline to showcase guest jazz talents as well.

This is a highly recommended short weekend away and the all0inclusive price of just $200 per person is a steal

This sounds too good to be true and it also sounds like a good Deal. Is it available for one person to go over for the weekend?

I had an enthusiastic stay in Bintan last week end. I was lucky enough to be invited to experience Bintan Lagoon resort in all its glory, not only the Jazzy Brunch - which is fabulous, but also to stay the night, enjoy an evening meal with a group of holiday makers by the beach over looking the water, then we hit the nightclub ( live music here and excellent performers all around ). Then to top it off, we enjoyed a leisurely buffet breakfast on Sunday morning and also managed to get a tan while lazing pool the huge pool which is the jewel in the crown here. The resort is calm and friendly, very easy to meet people and enjoy new conversations. I especially enjoyed my relaxation time by he pool and my in room massage - I fell asleep and that goes to show how relaxed I had become - All this is just 70 minutes away from Singapore. The highlight was the food though. The kitchen is turning out international world class fare and its not only good - it is sumptuous. Everything from local dishes to European taste, something for everyone. The lamb cutlet was amazing - some of the best cooked lamb I have had to remember. The free-flow wine was OK, nothing to write home about - but hey.... it was free flow and I was a guest of the hotel so I couldn't complain - although if I was paying for the free flow selection I would have preferred a better drop. The transfer from ship to shore is literally a few minutes..... the ferry terminal is right there at the resort's edge. All in all Bintan Lagoon resort comes with a high recommendation. I would hope to get back again one day soon for a few more days in the sun..... BTW the weather on this occasion was PERFECT - blue skies, a breeze in the air - being by the seaside - and not as humid as Singapore can get.
