About Bawah Reserve
When you land at Bawah Reserve, breathe in and relax. The seaplane journey over to the Anambas Archipelago may have been exhilarating but this resort is all about calm and tranquillity. Settle in for one of the most relaxing holidays in a unique resort centred around conservation and an off-grid existence.
Bawah Reserve incorporates six islands, three lagoons and 13 beaches. With only 35 luxury suites, and rainforest or ocean in every direction, you are sure to find peace and quiet in your day. These sparkling blue waters are home to coral reefs and extraordinary marine life. Kayak, snorkel, scuba, dive, stand-up paddleboard or sail through the breathtaking waters. Back on dry land, hike the rainforest, swim in the infinity pool or try your hand at a cooking class. Spend some time in the Aura Spa to complete your relaxation. In the evening, star gaze either at the crystal-clear sky from your terrace or at Hollywood stars in the open-air cinema.
Luxurious accommodation is de rigueur, and nothing is too much for the excellent and attentive staff. Choose to stay in an overwater bungalow; a beach suite or its deluxe equivalent; a jungle lodge or garden suite.
There’s relaxed dining in the terrace among the rainforest canopy at Treetops and intimate meal experiences in The Lookout. For chilled out coffee and cocktails, head to Grouper Bar, and for sundowners high in the trees, Jules Verne Bar is ideal. For complete barefoot luxury living, head to The Boat House, a beach bar par excellence that sums up the relaxed vibe at Bawah Reserve.
