Named after the native eagles that nest within its confines, Elang is a short boat ride from Bawah’s main island and it’s just a 10-minute walk from one side of this tiny slice of paradise to the other. Bawah itself is only accessible by seaplane from Singapore and Batam, with a journey time from Singapore of 4-hours.

A marine conservation site, Bawah Reserve was developed with sustainability as its central focus.

With a focus on sustainability, the resort boasts solar panels, rainwater catchment, a water desalination system, a plastic-free policy and zero-waste program.

Elang comprises five standalone one-bedroom villas named after the island’s indigenous trees – Ficus, Lychee, Yucca, Cycad and Satigi. There is also the two-bedroom Longhouse. Built to minimize the resort’s carbon footprint, each lodge is suspended on bamboo stilts and frames, and crafted from resak and rattan, showcasing the best of Indonesian craftsmanship. Roofs are thatched in alang-alang grass, floors have been crafted from repurposed driftwood and low walls built from hand-cut stone.

Each lodge boasts a spacious balcony with glorious ocean views and private pathways leading down to the shoreline. Yucca, Cycad & Satigi Lodges also offer outdoor bathtubs. Interiors include spacious living areas with textured soft furnishings, handwoven ikat panelling and artisan carvings. While ensuite bathrooms all include rain showers. The Longhouse includes two ensuite bedrooms, large central living and dining room, along with a covered full-width balcony with lounge seating and partial ocean views.
