Live, work and play at Banyan Tree BintanBintan Island, Indonesia
Picture this: you’re on an extended getaway – somewhere warm and tropical, perhaps – where you can spend both quality time relaxing with your loved ones AND fulfilling work requirements remotely.
Well, thanks to the launch of Banyan Tree Group’s new initiative, Habitat, that dream could become a reality. Habitat aims to redefine travel and offer a new way of living, working and holidaying by allowing guests to enjoy long-term stays at more than 30 Banyan Tree, Angsana and Cassia properties around the globe.
Purchase a Habitat Pass and you’ll be able to book stays in units of seven nights (with the option to move between properties), save up to 60 per cent on normal prices, and benefit from special Habitat-only inclusions like airport transfers, complimentary breakfast, wellness activities and free, unlimited wi-fi.
One of the properties available is Banyan Tree Bintan, which is perched atop a secluded bay on the northwestern tip of Indonesia’s Bintan Island. Boasting a range of spectacular Balinese-style villas (all with plunge pools), it’s hard to imagine a more gorgeous location to whip out the laptop and do a bit of work.
Once it’s time to clock off though, you can laze upon the resort’s private beach, tee off on the championship golf course or indulge in a pamper sesh at the acclaimed day spa. Because life’s all about balance, right? And that’s exactly what the Banyan Tree Group's Habitat project is hoping to inspire.
