The 6.3-hectare crystal clear water lagoon at the Treasure Bay Bintan Resort in Indonesia has become the main attraction of this US$3 billion tourist destination that opened in 2015.
It is the largest Crystal Lagoons amenity in Southeast Asia and therefore, the renowned website Kompas highlighted it as “one of the must-visit tourist attractions” on Bintan Island.
In the immense turquoise water lagoon, you can do all kinds of water sports, swimming and recreational activities, suitable for all ages.
According to the publication, “since its opening, Treasure Bay has been a success because it has the largest man-made lagoon in Southeast Asia”.
The water amenity uses filtered seawater and the patented Crystal Lagoons® technology to create a functional body of water throughout the year.
One of the main characteristics of this innovation is that it is environmentally responsible, since it uses 100 times less chemicals compared to a traditional swimming pool, just 2% of energy than traditional filter systems, and it operates in a closed system where it is only compensated the water that evaporates.
Crystal Lagoons in Asia
This lagoon is the first amenity built by Crystal Lagoons in Southeast Asia, inaugurated in 2015. Located in the Riau Archipelago of Indonesia, it is located just 48 kilometers from Singapore and receives visitors from all over the world.
The 90-hectare resort is a place that offers all imaginable amenities for tourists and their families, centered on the turquoise lagoon. It includes 5-star hotels, restaurants, trails, and natural hills where houses with Greek-style architecture are located.
Unlike the open sea, this crystalline lagoon is especially safe for children, as it lacks currents that could cause accidents.
Treasure Bay Bintan operates under the Public Access Lagoons™ model, also known as PAL™ developments, where people can access through paid daily tickets, allowing them to enjoy the immense lagoon, inflatable water games, various water sports and the beach bar, among other attractions.
