The Banyan Tree, Bintan

The beauty of South-East Asia in all its glory: the pristine beaches, the blue water, the warm sun, the green valleys; we saw it all in our weekend stay at the Banyan Tree in Bintan, Indonesia. The beauty of the place was beyond words & the luxury of Banyan Tree left us mesmerised. I'll let these pictures tell the rest of the story:
PS: Staying in a villa in the middle of a valley did get a bit spooky at night. Especially when I heard bats outside. I was glad Kabeer made the night really short by waking us up at 6 am :)

That looks awesome..I have quite a bit of SE Asia sojourns lined up this year as well..lets see if they all are just as the photos promise.

BTW, can you go into your blog settings and enable full post previews or something like that. I read your blog via Google reader and I just get first 4 lines of your blog (which is gen. the case when you have just preview enabled)

Kanishka,
Really? What parts of SE Asia? Singapore? HK? Bali?
Will change the settings...let me check it out.

Jas,
It was breathtakingly beautiful. Our villa was on a cliff overlooking a valley & then the ocean. :)
