Get off-grid at Anambas ArchipelagoAnambas islands, Indonesia

This is for those who want to be completely off-grid, without forgoing any luxuries.

Elang Private Residence is an eco-resort that will open later this year on a remote private island in Indonesia. Off-grid means the journey is all part of the experience, and getting here requires a ferry from Singapore to the island of Batam then an 80-minute flight on a seaplane.

Once there, relax in one of six cliffside lodges made of bamboo, driftwood and hand-cut stone, each with living areas, balconies and personalised butler service.

The nearby 'village' has a clubhouse with a two-storey open-air dining room, bar and saltwater infinity pool that was formed from a natural hollow. The Kayu Spa is in a restored joglo, a traditional Javanese house, that was gifted to the owner.
You can book just one lodge, or the entire island, but regardless which you choose, if you're after complete privacy, this is your place.
