Chtěla jsem to ZAŽÍT 🫶 Bydlet přímo na pláži, na ostrově, který ti vezme dech. Tyrkysová voda, bílý písek, žádní lidé, prostě Ráj na zemi. Lépe to už mé představy snad ani neumí vymyslet 🏝👌. Domeček na pláži jen sama pro sebe, z toho co ostrov dal, samé přírodní materiály, dřevo, palmy, žádné stěny. Absolutně v přímem kontaktu s přírodou. Ticho které léčí. Houpací síť, ve které jsem strávila hodiny jen sama se sebou. Usínat a budit se s šuměním moře, poslouchat vlny jak přichází a odchází, burácení hromu při bouřce, vidět blesky, které rozsvítí celou oblohu. Svit měsíce v úplňku, který ti svítí přímo do postele, mraky jako živý obraz. Spát jen tak na královském loži jen s lehkým přehozem, protože teplota je i v noci příjemná a oblečení není potřeba. Lehký vánek ti profukuje domečkem, vlní ti závoji nad hlavou, které drží hmyzí kamarády od těla. Usínat a budit se když se ti chce, protože bez hodin se řídíš jen svojí přirozeností. Po probuzení vklouznout nahá do moře a udělat si peeling celého těla bílým pískem. K tomu vynikající místní jídlo, spousty zralé papáji, ananasu, melounů, dračího ovoce, ryb a perfektní péče místních. Žhavé rovníkové slunce a pestrý seberozvojový program navrch. Ideální místo na hluboký odpočinek a totální reset 👌

We were longing for an escape to a remote island somewhere in the Indian Ocean, ideally close to the equator. After zooming in on Google Maps, we stumbled upon Pinang Island. It seemed to offer a peaceful, secluded sanctuary away from the crowds, where we could recharge and escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world. But it turned out to be much more than that. We fell in love with the simplicity of the resort and accommodations, yet they boasted all the modern comforts of the 21st century. The resort was exclusive, hosting only up to 10 guests alongside locals and managers, totaling up to 30 people. I was touched by the warmth and inclusivity; as soon as we arrived by boat, both staff and fellow guests warmly welcomed us. There was never a dull moment on the island. From morning and afternoon yoga classes to lively volleyball matches and leisurely beach time, there was always something exciting to engage in. Richard, the resort's PR manager, even took us on a trek around the island, sharing its captivating history. His passion for the permaculture garden he founded left me longing for the delicious papayas he grows. And if ever we tired of our island activities, there was the option to venture to Bangkaru Island to witness the enchanting sight of turtle nesting and egg-laying. Indeed, paradise had to be earned, and the long journey to get there was just a part of the adventure. All the troubles of the journey were instantly forgotten upon landing. A heartfelt thank you to the team for their hospitality; I cherished the sense of community there, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

This place is fantastic. The owners who run the place with a bunch of talented friendly locals are awesome. The agenda is a deep commitment to conservation and species protection. As a surfer they couldn’t have done more to deliver me to the best local waves. The food was authentic Indonesian, varied, healthy and delicious. This place really is an organic eco haven. Highly recommended.

Připluli jsme s partnerem doslova do ráje🏝️😍! Od první chvíle jsme měli pocit, jako by nám někdo střelil do žil všechno, co nás vyživuje a dělá dobře. Ta energie se nedá popsat, ta se musí zažít🔥. Je to nezapomenutelný zážitek mít celý ostrov pro sebe daleko od civilizace a všedního shonu. Nadstandardně se tady o nás staral správce ostrova Richard na vlně totální empatie a také Indonéští usměvaví zaměstnanci. Dalo by se říct, že je to taková jedna rodina neskutečně pohodových a srdečných lidí různého vyznání, kteří společně žijou svůj sen a téměř soběstačnost v ráji. Bylo vidět, že jim na naši spokojenosti od srdce záleží💞. Moc se mi líbí způsob otevřeného ubytování s čerstvým vánkem moře přímo do postele. Člověk se cítí více propojený s přírodou a to je moc příjemné. Velmi jsme si užili šnorchlování. Viděli jsme želvy, nádherně barevné rybičky i různobarevné hvězdice🤿🪸🐳. Pokud si chcete dopřát něco, co vás skutečně vyživí a kde si dáte pohov od vnějšího světa, tak toto místo je naprosto ideální. Jsem z něho nadšená tak moc, že jsem se rozhodla na něm uspořádat seberozvojový pobyt pro mé klienty. A už se nemůžu dočkat jak se na ostrov opět vrátím a ukážu tento ráj dalším dobrodružným duším. Stojí to za to! Děkuji, že s láskou tvoříte takové kouzelné místo🙏🏼. A+V🐉🐉

Nádherné místo s panenskou přírodou a průzračným blankytně modrým mořem. Pod vodou jsou vidět krásné korály, ryby a i želvy. Je to dechberoucí přírodní ráj, vynikající jídlo a moc milý personál.

Ráj na zemi? Existuje! Úžasné místo s krásnou energií, kde si odpočine nejen tělo, ale i duše. Celý pobyt jsme si velice užili. Dokonalé písečné pláže s bílým pískem a azurovou vodou. Moc milí zaměstnanci a skvělé jídlo. Survování, jóga, šnorchlování - to vše jsme si vyzkoušeli. Co je víc, než mít pro sebe celý ostrov. :) Moc děkujeme a určitě se ještě vrátíme.

Absolutely fantastic place that looks like paradise. Beautiful white beaches and turquoise water. You will experience here the connection with nature, the beautiful bungalows are located right on the beach and you have a few meters to the superb beach and beautiful snorkeling. The staff was extremely nice and caring. The staff are local people with a big heart. On the island you can enjoy yoga in the new beautiful yoga shala, where you can ride also surfskate, play volleyball, walk through the jungle, snorkel, fish, surf. You can also visit the big permaculture garden, where fruits and vegetables are grown in harmony with nature. Their papaya is absolutely fantastic! I've never eaten better. Also worth mentioning is the good food that the local nice lady cooks. For breakfast there are excellent pancakes or rice porridge with coconut milk and lots of fruit. The main course is usually fish, chicken or fried rice and vegetables. This place is suitable for people who don't mind close contact with wildlife and animals.


Get lost in the Wet Lands, climb Clove Hill, meditate near Giant Bringin, or explore Bamboo Forest. Pinang boasts all these features and more.
