Top instaworthy spots at Bawah Reserve

Bawah Reserve is unarguably one of the most photogenic places you’ll travel,
 with its clear turquoise waters, blue lagoons, and sandy beaches. The natural
beauty is unparalleled yet the barefoot lux décor of Bawah (canopy beds,
bamboo verandahs and copper bathtubs) screams “camera” like Gin screams
tonic. Here are five of our most Instafamous locations to take that memorable
holiday snap.


1. Jetty

Our jetty is so Instaworthy that it’s even got it’s own hashtag.  Enter the
#jettygram. The long wooden jetty juts out from the island into the sea, taking
you from the seaplane, past crystal clear waters that reveal coral formations
and on to the sandy shores of paradise.

📷Snap it like this: get your very own #jettygram: take a shot jumping up high
on the jetty, off the jetty, lying on the jetty with a big floppy hat, we have even
had someone doing a headstand on the jetty!  

 


2. Seaplane

That first glimpse of the seaplane ready to whisk you away, shouts “the
holidays have arrived!” like nothing else. Not to be outdone by our jetty, the
seaplane has its own hashtag too #seaplanestyle. The affable pilots flying our
seaplane are easy on the eye too and because this is island style, they are
almost always barefoot.

📷Snap it like this: You’ll need a selfie from inside the plane of course, and a
snap of the pilots and their barefeet. Plus a shot or two of the seaplane window
with those turquoise waters beckoning from beyond. Snap yourself on the
jetty with the seaplane in the background and that’s two down! The seaplane
only arrives once a day so if you fancy catching a video of the plane landing or
taking off, you’ll need to ask someone the time (we assume you wont be
keeping track of the clock on holiday yourself!).


3. Hike lookout

Most of the time you’ll be swimming with colourful fish, feasting on tropical
fruit and getting a massage, but for those who need to stretch the ham strings
there’s the chance to get a snap at the hike lookout point. The main hike leads
you through the jungle up to a peak that looks down on magical lagoons giving
you a birds eye view of the jetty and coral reefs.

📷Snap it like this: Mop the post-hike glow off and get a selfie with that
gorgeous view in he background. Just don’t step too far back! Tip: There is a
handy rock to sit on and take a photo without getting dangerously near the
edge.

 


4. Jellyfish lighting

One of the most impressive sights of our main dining room at Treetops is the
jellyfish lighting. These huge wicker lampshades tower above with trailing sea
shells that hang over the middle table, making an impressive photograph.

📷Snap it like this: The lighting is stunning at night as they change colours.


5. Boathouse Swings

Explore the island and once you find the boathouse swings, you’ll want to
perch here with a drink, feet dangling in the sand admiring the view. The
swings overlook the natural spit that gets created at low tide making a bridge
that connects the sandy islands (until the tide claims it later at high tide).

📷Snap it like this: Get a solo selfie, drink in hand or squeeze in with your
beau. We feel a new hashtag coming on ….

 

6. Hammock in the lagoon

 

New addition to this list in December 2019 -

The picture perfect hammock in the middle of the lagoon. Nothing is more bucket list than the iconic hammock over the ocean. Perfect for that lazy afternoon nap........
