A gem of a resort is emerging in Bintan - one set amidst pristine white beaches, clear emerald waters and lush tropical forests. Aptly named Ria Bintan (Ria meaning celebration), this golf and beach resort promises to be the toast of holiday-makers.
The 447-hectare development will be developed in phases comprising hotels such as Club Med Ria Bintan, two 18-hole championship golf courses, a clubhouse with recreational facilities and 1,500 resort homes which open to magnificent sea views.
Ria Bintan Golf Club is a 36-hole championship golf course designed by Gary Player. The 18-hole Ocean Course and the first nine holes of the 18-hole Forest Course opened for play in October 1998 and December 2000 respectively. Ria Bintan Golf club has made it to the official ranking of the Top 100 golf Courses published by Golf Digest Magazine.
Ria Bintan Golf club clinched first runner-up awards in the Asian Golf Monthly Awards 2000 for Best Golf Resort in Asia, Best Course in Indonesia and Best Par 4 in Asia.
