Cempedak Private Island Is Just A Ferry Away

While kids are usually a joy to be around, everyone needs a little “grown-up” time once in awhile, to get a break from incessant crying, seat-kicking on planes or messing up of important interviews.

Well, frazzled parents and kid-phobic singles can now escape to a private island with a wide array of activities to ensure that they get the vacation they deserve. Not only is it an only 2.5-hour ferry ride from Singapore, it is also KID FREE.


Yes, we know. It looks like the epitome of #vacationgoals.

Cempedak Island

The 17-hectare private island just off the coast of Bintan is only a ferry ride away from Tanah Merah.

The resort is home to a diverse population of wildlife, which includes the endangered Pangolin.


The resort opened in March this year, and has already been a seeing a flock of adults on holiday.


The visual aesthetics of the rooms are astounding as well — nobody would think of complaining that these rooms aren’t Instagram-worthy.



The island has 20 bamboo villas made from scratch, specially crafted to immerse guests in a tropical experience.

The hand-crafted structures are sure to leave you in awe.



The resort is also not lacking in terms of food too — in fact, it’s a gastronomic paradise.


The resort boasts a restaurant with a plethora of options for a scenic dining experience, so guest can enjoy both the food and the view.

The menu also changes everyday, according to the freshest ingredients available at the local market.

Take a look at some of the dishes on offer:




When you’re not eating, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to do. From throwing a volleyball around at the beach, to snorkeling among the fishes, you can do it all.


Alternatively, you can choose to just read a book and bask under the sun.


Or cool off in the pool, entirely free from the splashing and shrieks of children:



Prices start at $450 a night for their one-bedroom seaview villas, and meals cost almost $100 per person per meal.

With prices like that, the food better be good.

Fortunately, the luxury resort has received stellar reviews, with a 4.9/5 rating on Facebook.
