If you are on the hunt for a new island to escape, you can now add this new spot to your list. Indeed, there are few places on earth such as the untouched Anambas archipelago and Bawah Private Island. Lost in South Asia, this archipelago is composed of 5 pristine islands nestled among three lagoons only 2 hours away from Singapore in the heart of the South Sea between the Malaysian Peninsula and the Borneo archipelago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bawah Private Island opened in 2017 and offers a playground of over 120 hectares, three crystal blue lagoons, 13 powder-white beaches, lush jungle canopy for trekking, and more importantly a major environmental philosophy. In short, a new confidential address for a chic Robinson Crusoe experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The island proposes 35 villas, 21 on the beach, 11 water villas, and three garden villas. Each one is carefully furnished and has been entirely handmade with local materials such as floating wood, bamboo, or recycled coconut shell. Bawah only allows a maximum of 70 guests which means you won’t have to deal with rowdy crowds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The island also offers a clubhouse in the trees with stunning views of the sea, a yoga pavilion, a magnificent infinity pool by the beach, and a Spa offering treatments based on natural products. Snorkeling will be the main activity of your days, to explore the fishy waters of this small archipelago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The luxury of Bawah is also the owner’s commitment to create an establishment respecting sustainable development to preserve the environment. No machine was used to build this paradise. The project took more than five years to develop because all the construction was manual and all areas with no construction were preserved. Bawah Island is committed to protect flora and fauna of these islands by prohibiting the use of pesticides to protect butterflies and birds on the archipelago. Bawah is also a marine conservation area where fishing is forbidden and precautions have been put in place to stop any fishing boat from outside to operate inside the lagoons to supports only local fishermen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to get there?

Bawah Island is just two hours from Singapore.  You can get there via a ferry from Singapore to Batam, and by private seaplane to Bawah.
