I also got to spend 60 minutes me-time with The Residence Bintan Yoga instructor and did some pretty good stretch. This Yoga Studio is very well set up with unslipped flooring and surrounded with full glass windows. Everything you need is set up and waiting for you.
Hop on a Bike Anywhere
We spotted pretty bicycles everywhere around The Residence Bintan! I've not rode a bike for a very long time and I didn't attempt to do it while we were there. But the father did try to ride while we hopped on the buggy back to our resort after lunch, and the imagery of him struggling to cycle upslope became THE talking point whenever we passed by that slope... and we went through MANY times over the 3 days... "Ayah Ayah, you remember you cycle up here and you look so funny?..." Even up till today, back in Singapore, the girls will remind their Ayah every day!

On our last day at The Residence Bintan, we took a 20 minutes ride out for a boat ride to check out the mangrove. It was a tiring (due to the heat) but fulfilling trip for the little ones. If you're heading for this, go prepared with mosquito repellent, sunscreen and plenty of water!
Thanks to our super guide who seems to have a super sight for spotting the many wonders of nature while we rode through the river and mangrove. "Look there's an eagle!... A black snack...
On top of all the above activities we tried during our stay, The Residence Bintan also have many water sports available for the young and adventurous ones.
People Vs Activities
No matter how many activities and fun things there are at the resort, it doesn't mean much if you don't have the right people to do things together with. I'm glad we took time out from our crazy schedule to spend these 3 days together.
Our stay at The Residence Bintan had been superb thanks to the warm hospitality, friendly service staff everywhere around the resort and for one very special person, Gita. He brought the most joy and laughter to our girls from the first step they took at the resort till the goodbye. If you do get to visit The Residence Bintan, say hi to Gita for us!
