Weekend Getaway at Cassia Bintan
We’re always so busy nowadays that we hardly have time to take a break from our daily schedules. Just a while ago, I had the privilege to spend some quality time with my family and friends in the beautiful Cassia Bintan Resort.
Cassia Bintan, which is just a short 45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, was magnificently luxurious to say the least! Welcoming us into the resort is a bright and cheery lobby setting. Their rooms are incredibly spacious and cozy, with all of the rooms having a fully-equipped kitchen. This made it so much easier and convenient for me to whip up meals for BabyC. I prepared yummy pumpkin, carrot and potato porridge for her during this trip.
All the rooms all have WIFI internet connection, allowing me to stay easily connected.
I was so impressed with the myriad of amenities and activities they had there. I absolutely loved their exclusive private beach. The sparkling clear blue-green seawater and the clear skies were the perfect backdrop to a lovely stroll along the beach. It was BabyC’s first time on a beach and she was having so much fun stepping on the sand! It fills my heart every time she achieves tiny milestones in life.
They had jet-skiing as well. Oh, I had so much fun trying to balance and steer the jet-ski! It was really a once in a lifetime experience.
There was so much for the little ones to do as well. They have a safe baby pool that BabyC loved splashing around in.

They also have a lovely baby turtle feeding area that we spent so much time at. It was BabyC’s first time feeding the turtles. There were even a few times she wanted to be fed instead!
We’re wearing the lovely pink Leah printed hem set and the Blue & White Aubrey prints set, with both sets being nursing-friendly! These matching MotherTots chic and stylish nursing-friendly apparels are from Jumpeatcry.
What is a holiday without good food? I was pleasantly surprised that there were so many options available when it came to meal times. We decided to try dining by the beach and it was so relaxing to hear the waves hitting the sand in the background as we dug into a scrumptious lunch.
On one of the days, we hopped onto a buggy which took us to Banyan Tree, a restaurant at a neighbouring resort. We tried dining by Tree Top at Banyan Tree, and the food was exceptionally delicious. To our delight, we found out that Banyan Tree even delivers food to Cassia!
In support of an initiative started by Cassia, we had purchased padlocks for US$2.25 each, with all the proceeds going to the children from Towdah Orphanage.
All the staff in Cassia Bintan were professional and provided exceptional service. From the moment we stepped foot in Cassia Bintan, til the moment we left, the staff at Cassia Bintan had been friendly and welcoming.
The serenity and natural location of Cassia Bintan had created a lovely serene environment for the ultimate relaxation. Having the exclusive beach in a close vicinity of the resort made it much more convenient to take a stroll along the emerald waves.
Giving off a chic and modern vibe, the rooms were tastefully decorated with bright paintings and an overall unique style that extended into the large and comfy resort lobby.
The large range of food options available was definitely a plus point. The food that we tried at Banyan Tree was super delicious. Cassia Bintan also offers an impressive breakfast buffet spread that we leisurely enjoyed to kick start our day before we started on the day’s activities.
I would absolutely recommend Cassia Bintan for a fun family trip or just a weekend getaway. There were so many things to do, the many amenities and activities available at the resort really made it worth the price!
The 0.5 point deducted was only for some outdoor areas with completely no air-con which can be a lil challenging at times when I was outdoor nursing Chriselle hehhehe…
It is truly pure bliss to be in the right company, and at the right place and time with friends like family…I couldn’t have asked for a better business partner and mummy friend in Audrey.
Although my schedule is always packed, I’ll always make it a point to do the most important thing in life and spend time with my loved ones. Trips like this with family and friends like family will always hold a special place in my heart, especially since this is my first tri-girl generation trip with both Mum and BabyC! I’ve made so many fun and happy memories there.

At the end of the day, we may not remember the days…but we will remember the moments ❤️
