THIS ALL-INCLUSIVE FAMILY RESORT sits beachfront on Indonesia’s Bintan Island, just an hour from Singapore. White sands, long sweeping shores and an endless array of fitness activities make for a rejuvenating vacation the whole clan will fondly remember. Master your skills in everything from archery, flying trapeze and golf, to sailing, snorkeling and paddleboarding. As well as a family-friendly buffet and a la carte options spanning the gamut of international eats, there are a handful of poolside terraces at which to unwind. While you sip mojitos, the little ones can keep entertained with cooking classes and crafts at the complimentary kids’ club (for four- to 10-year-olds).
