A 70-minute flight from Singapore by private seaplane takes you to Indonesia’s latest archipelago of islands to enjoy a luxury hideaway treatment.  

At Bawah Island, just 35 suites and villas hide in a jungle canopy overlooking three stunningly clear lagoons. That means you’ll only ever have to share the six private islands with a maximum of 69 other guests, all of whom get their own, tropical-cool quarters and dine on meals plucked from the nearby environment.  

Swimming pool? Forget it. With calm, azure waters just moments from your villa, you don’t need one—plus this place is all about the environment.





Opening in Aug, the resort is right now taking email bookings through their website. How much? Now US$1,960 (about $2,670) for two people per night, including the private flights.
