Loola Adventure Resort, Bintan

We went with Trixie’s family to Loola Adventure Resort, Bintan in the December holiday. It wasn’t what the kids expected but we all had so much fun!

The 2 families stayed together in the Isa Villa. Pretty, but layout was a bit odd.

It was low tide when we reached the resort on the first day.

View from my room. Isa villa has individual rooms joined by corridors and steps.

We spent the whole morning of day 2 kayaking. The water there was fantastic for kayaking. We kayaked to 2 islands and into the mangroves. So much fun!

After lunch, the tide started to recede. Time for land activities.

We did the scariest activity of the lot that afternoon: Sky-walking. You climb up a long ladder to reach a horizontal plank tied to the coconut tree. Without any handrails or anything to hold on to (except the rope attached to your harness), you have to move to the middle of the plank and jump off.

That adrenaline rush! I and Barry went twice.

Then, the kids went rock-climbing. Adults sat out because we were not interested.

We requested for another round of archery before dinner. Had a belated birthday celebration for Natalie. 🙂

Sunrise on Day 3.

Fishies working hard in the morning. Can you spot a whole school jumping out of the water?

That morning, we did Boom-netting. That was the BEST! We got on a boat and jumped off its sides into a huge net. There were level 1 and 2. Level 2 was indeed challenging. Oh man, we enjoyed ourselves so much that morning!

Deadbeat from all that jumping and laughing and screaming, we had to drag ourselves to the next activity after lunch. By we, I mean the adults. The kids didn’t seem to tire at all.

On the way to the zipline, we spotted a stork-billed kingfisher.

Initially, everyone was apprehensive. Jump off the 4-storeys high platform? Into this small pool of water? Hmmm. What if we miss the water and crash into the beams?

Brave Barry and Jared were game enough to try first. I tell you, they didn’t want to stop afterwards. Our guide Conti had to limit our tries to 3 times each.  Here’s me trying to take a video going down. Haha.

2nd time.

It started raining and we had to skip our marine walk. Next activity: pizza making for the kids.

Then, we had a sumptuous dinner by the campfire.

The crab was DE-LI-CIOUS!

Pretty moon.

That was not the end of our fun though. Conti squeezed in dragon-kayaking for us the next morning, before we checked out at 11.30am.

Kids were so sad to leave the place and want to return. I am happy we all got to try so many awesome activities. I learned so much about my family and myself during this trip. Great holiday!
