About Me

I am Bawah Reserve. I am a tropical luxury retreat located in the remote Anambas Archipelago in Indonesia and thanks to my existence I am now a designated marine conservation area. On my 6 islands, 13 beaches and 5 lagoons you will experience barefoot luxury first hand; arrive by private seaplane, settle in and become one with your surreal surroundings. Listen to the waves as you fall asleep, feel the sand grain by grain under your feet and follow the rhythm of nature as you go to bed with the stars and awake with a sunrise as colorful as the parrot fish in my sapphire blue waters. I boast a total of 35 bungalows from luxurious overwater villas to bamboo tented beach and garden suites only steps from the pristine sandy beach. Enjoy a lush green jungle view on one side and sapphire blue colored lagoons on the other.

What to do at Bawah Reserve

You will be surprised by the variety of activities that can be done on such a small island. From a romantic island escape to days filled with adventure and activities. You pick. With 5 lagoons and 13 beaches, you can choose to explore these either by paddleboard, kayak or even take one of the sailboats out. Or just call it a day and sit back on one of the comfy beanbags at Grouper Bar and order a delicious mocktail.

The sunsets here on Bawah are so magical and can be experienced differently every day. View it from the comfort of your own bungalow or villas or while enjoying a refreshing drink at The Boat House. Enjoy the pink and purple hues high amongst the tree canopy at The Jules Verne Bar — the highest platform on the island — with a glass of wine and good company. Take a sea kayak out onto the calm waters

Snorkel amongst a school of parrotfish, swim with turtles and clownfish or spot the elusive red lobster. Once you are back, treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa date at the Aura Spa: facials, foot massages and full body massages await.

Have you ever dreamed of having your own private beach for yourselves with a romantic picnic set up, snorkeling gear and a cooler full of ice cold drinks? The staff at Bawah Reserve can make this happen.

There might not be a gym facility on the island, but Bawah Reserve offers daily yoga and pilates. Make sure to check in with the activities desk to confirm the times.
