A Kuala Lumpur-based company Landmarks Bhd. is starting the production of a super resort on the Bintan coast, Indonesia. The company has a large plot of land of 835 acres dedicated to building. The company plans to turn the resort named Treasure Bay into an internationally popular destination that will be able to compete with Bali.
Treasure Bay currently has one more name – Pesona Lagoi Bintan. The project will be developed in phases. The first phase will occupy around 222 acres of the area and will cost its owner around US $334 million. It is expected to be opened in 2014. This part of the resort will feature a series of luxurious villas with full service. Phase One will also include such facilities as a transportation terminal, a marina, some entertainment attractions and F&B outlets.
Landmark also hopes to engage third parties to participate in this project and release their projects on the territory of the resort.
Treasure Bay will have 149 guestrooms in total. Apart from the 30 upscale villas, mentioned above, the resort will also have a hotel for 119 guestrooms. Designed by Department of Architecture Co. Ltd. this building will consist of numerous interlocking cubes that form floating loops. The rooms in this hotel in Indonesia will have no sides and will erase boundaries between back and front. The interior design as well as all service and public places have been developed according to the concept of “Wu Xing” – the ancient Chinese study about 5 main elements. All rooms will feature magnificent views of the sea.
The second phase also includes the creation of another 160 villas with total square ranging from 200 to 1100 sq. m.
The developer hopes Bintan, which is just 45-minute away from Singapore by ferry, will become a popular destination for international tourists and will become a popular resort for weddings, celebrations and other events.
