Why We Love Bawah Reserve

There are many reasons to fall in love with the stunning Bawah Reserve including their eco-friendly values. The resort was hand-built from sustainable bamboo and other recycled materials. Water is sourced on the island, recycled as drinking water and heated using solar energy. Bawah is the first island in Indonesia to be powered by a renewable microgrid. The resort supports Bawah Anambas Foundation - an Indonesian Foundation focused on addressing Marine Conservation, Forest Conservation, and Community Development in Anambas. Plus our OrcaNation Dive Centre offers a choice of conservation dives.
