A playground of over 300 hectares, 3 crystal blue lagoons, 13 powder white beaches, lush jungle canopy for trekking and more importantly a philosophy of environmental and conservation policies, Bawah Island is a project of love to integrate people with nature and will set the benchmark for future destinations around the region.
Bawah is a group of 6 islands located at the southern end of the Anambas Islands (which is made up of 295 islands of which only 19 are occupied) approximately 150 nautical miles north-east from Singapore.
Bawah was uninhabited with the nearest population 30 nautical miles away.
There are coral reefs surrounding the islands that provide excellent opportunities to snorkel & dive and there is a unique variety of marine life.
The islands surround three lagoons the largest of which is over 900m long.
A shallow channel through the outer reef into the second largest of the lagoons offers protected deep water anchorage.
The third lagoon runs North South with a large Mangrove on both sides giving home to extensive wildlife of mudskippers, numerous fish, crabs & birdlife.
There are 35 stand-alone suites and bungalows in this pristine destination.
Life on Bawah is simple – live with the natural surroundings – go with the flow – dress simple.
There’s no end of adventures to be had; hike through the rainforest past monitor lizards and a 2,000 year-old palm to the entirely empty Coconut Beach; windsurf, kayak or paddle-board between five islands, stopping at a cave to see hundreds of bats swirl into flight; snorkel among parrotfish, clownfish and turtles.
Or just loll on the sand with a book from the library.
Most activities are included in the rate, as are daily treatments at the Aura spa, such as yoga, pilates, meditation, facials and massages.
