Bawah Reserve
1 Desa Kiabu, Anambas Islands 21971 Indonesia

General Manager: Raymond Saja


Bawah Reserve is a sustainable resort offering a spectacular private island experience in Indonesia’s remote Anambas archipelago.
Our earth-first philosophy guides everything we do; it’s why we established a come-as-you- are, relaxed environment built upon the tenets of authenticity, excellent service and respect for our islands’ natural wonders.

Daily rates include spa treatments, island activities (both on land and sea) and the exquisite cuisine made from ingredients grown in Bawah’s own gardens. With six islands, three lagoons, 13 beaches and 100 hectares

of untouched forest, guests have their own natural playground to explore.

The journey to the resort can start either in Singapore or Batam, Indonesia.


Guests are picked up from the airport, a hotel or a private residence – by Bawah’s preferred, outsourced car service and driven to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. From there, Bawah’s travel host escorts guests on a 30-minute ferry ride to the Indonesian island of Batam. On arrival, guests are driven to Batam airport where they board Bawah’s amphibious seaplane for an 80-minute flight, landing on the water in the resort’s main lagoon.


Guests are picked up via private car service from their hotel or residence in Batam. Guests may opt to fly directly into the Hang Nadim Airport (BTH) where they will be met upon arrival for direct transfer to Bawah’s amphibious seaplane.


Guests wishing to travel to Bawah Reserve via private jet should plan to fly directly into the Hang Nadim Airport (BTH) for direct transfer to Bawah’s amphibious seaplane.


We welcome guests to Bawah Reserve who are travelling via private yacht. Reservations are required for mooring and there are size limitations within our lagoons.
