Well than if the weather is nice and calm, than I most certainly wouldn't mind living there. And since they are surrounded by water they probably have some pretty pleasant winds and temperatures.

.......the fact that the water is so clear and beautiful makes me wonder what type of power generation and waste disposal system is in play.....................good opportunity to go above the call of duty......but nice though

i think its awesome that bintan is now acquiring a "luxury enclave" status after years of being known as the factory backyard of Singapore. But i think there are a lot of social issues to be cleared up in Bintan before it can sustain an industry of hospitality. There's the problem of racial unease with the natives resenting the presence of the migrated Javanese; as recent as a year ago there were rumours of riot over labour exploitation and employment displacement in bintan. and of course the problem of comfort kampungs that Singaporean men frequent for cheap sex.

i think a really luxurious getaway island concept will require the temperament of bucolic settings like the Canary Islands / Capri / Bali that are sufficiently socially sophisticated to handle the issues of tourism: it being a "service" industry, its disney-fication of culture... As far as i know there's still too much social tension in Bintan to handle the spectacle of rich Caucasian / Chinese men living off the menial labours of native Bintan-ers.

There's a major problem with pirates in the Riau Islands (Bintan, Batam Singapore...) and that's probably a sign that luxury is a concept to be resented in the social vernacular of the Riau Islands.
