Cempedak Private Island - Indonesia

Cempedak is a 17 hectare private island 9km off the east coast of Bintan, Indonesia. Located 91km from Singapore, the travel time from Tanah Merah ferry terminal is approximately two and a half hours.

Surrounded by unspoilt islands it is one of only a handful of private islands along this beautiful coast. Cempedak is ringed with white sandy beaches and studded with magnificent white granite boulders. Rising to a height of 40m, the island boasts a rain forest that provides sanctuary to a diverse population of local birds including hornbills, eagles and kingfishers. Other residents on the island include the critical endangered pangolin and a family of sea otters.

The architecture is dramatic and unique. Bamboo has been used throughout and in ways not seen before. Crescent shaped curved roofs made from a local grass provide a natural symmetry to the environment and at the same time protection from the elements. With private plunge pools in each villa, huge decks, the guest accommodation is very private and very spacious. This is “simple barefoot luxury” in a sublime natural setting.

The villas are designed to promote natural ventilation. Overhead fans and the siting of each villa to maximize the cool ocean breezes is a wonderful working example of “nature’s air-con”.

Activities available to guests includes ‘serious’ relaxation, swimming, sailing, snorkeling, diving, massage, nature discovery and island hopping, windsurfing, standup paddle boarding, kayaking, tennis, croquet, and boule.
