Lagoi Bay Bintan Update January 2014
There’s a great sense of achievement seeing the 1,500 hectare resort town master plan that I was responsible for conceptualizing close to two decades ago become reality. The details are a little different from when we first started but the planning principals remaining the same – that is, to create a modern and contemporary beach resort town in Southeast Asia.
All large beach front resort parcels, commercial shops lots along the main pedestrian mall and beach front have been sold to investors and resort developers – off the plan! Resort hotel construction is well underway on the recent visit with another 5 properties expected to begin construction in 2014.
That’s testimony enough for the foresight of having a beach town at Lagoi Bay Bintan initiated by a pioneering resort development team.
The MOU between Garuda and Gallant Venture will contribute further to Bintan’s as well as Lagoi Bay’s future success.
