Bawah Reserve, Indonesia

Enveloped by lush tropical greenery and azure blue ocean, Bawah Reserve rests in sheltered carefree seclusion 160 nautical miles (300km) northeast of Singapore in Indonesia’s remote Anambas Archipelago. Surrounded by clear turquoise waters, blue lagoons and coral reefs, this pristine and previously uninhabited marine conservation area caters to outdoor adventurers with an appetite for indulgence as well as paradise seekers looking for relaxation. Bawah offers the true meaning of sustainable luxury. Set across a secluded collection of six islands, three lagoons and 13 beaches, the luxurious all-inclusive Bawah Reserve is — in the words of Condé Nast Traveller — “one of the world’s most exciting new hideaways: remote, beautiful and with bar-raising environmental policies”.
