So we had a crazy retreat at Bintan Lagoon Resort. 3 families comprising 6 adults and 4 kids and 2 babies.
It was fun, relaxing at times, supremely tiring for the most part, but still worth it…
The villa is equipped with a kitchen too so you can bring your own ingredients to whip up a hot yummy breakfast.
The kids loved the beach, and found this little natural wade pool enclosed by large rocks. There were even little fishes swimming in there!
Big sister and baby brother taking a stroll.
We also had most of our meals by the beach, just enjoying the sea breeze in our hair, and the lovely restaurant food.
Most of our mornings consisted of jumping into the pool. This one below is child-friendly as it has a pretty large shallow wading area.
After a dip, you can try your hand at some batik painting!
Little Josh enjoyed wandering in the large space, exploring whatever he could get his hands on.
He was one contented little baby. Incidentally, this was his first trip over the seas…
It was nice, 3 whole nights without wifi and even mobile roaming. (You can of course pay for wifi if you really need to, but we didn’t feel the need to…Well okay by the last night some of us were itching to get back on the grid again…)
We didn’t even use the phone except as a torchlight when we’ve looking for something in the room after baby Josh was asleep.
I think we’re set for more crazy but memorable young-family trips like these…
More details on the trip will be shared in the coming weeks over at Petite Travellers!
