You could wander around the mall this weekend, or you discover visit six islands, three turquoise lagoons and 13 golden beaches. The pristine Bawah Reserve in the Anambas Archipelago is ready for you to explore. Touch down in your seaplane and be taken to your beach, garden or overwater bungalow. Spend the day snorkelling over coral reefs or trekking through the jungle and the night dining on a private beach or watching a movie at the open-air cinema.
You don’t need to travel far to enjoy a beach holiday in Asia. Just a hop, skip and a jump across the border from Singapore, you’ll find the golden beaches of Desaru. What’s more exciting is that it is about to welcome One&Only Desaru, so pack your designer swimwear and head to the border. However, we must warn you that once you visit your rainforest or ocean suite, dine on dishes by acclaimed chef Andrew Walsh at the Ember Beach Club, or join the resident naturalist for a nature walk, you might want to stay a little longer.
