Bintan Lagoon Resort – an ideal getaway

Travelling is a personal favourite, and having been with Anergy Fun Engineers for almost 6 years has seen me travelling to all sorts of places both near and far. One of the popular destinations would be to neighbouring islands, as Singapore is connected very easily to countries such as Indonesia and their outlying islands such as Bintan by just a 75 mins direct ferry ride. And that is about the time we take to travel from one end of the island to another.

Bintan Lagoon Resorts is one of the most popular resorts to go to. As their website mentions, it is “a tropical paradise, home to sun, sea, and two spectacular golf courses. This Indonesian-style 473-room resort is sprawled over 310 hectares of manicured gardens, with a private, golden sand beach that stretches nearly 1.5km.” But what is unique about this resort, is its own private ferry, sending you direct to the doorstep of the resort! No need for an additional transfer between the ferry terminal and resort.

If you’re planning an overseas team building activities retreat, whether for outdoor or indoor activities for your  company team ,Bintan Lagoon Resort would be an ideal location, as it’s not just a tranquil location, but coupled with a range of venues that caters to 10 to 1000 delegates, this a venue that is out to meet your utmost meeting needs.

As a team building activities provider, we like this place due to it’s vastness and it’s own private beach. Perfect for indoor teambuilding programs within their function rooms, and outdoor teambuilding programs within the resort or on the beach, Bintan Lagoon Resort gives us a lot of reign on how we can design our teambuilding programs around the resort. We have done beach games, Synergy Races, indoor activities and even a video production activity at this Resort.

Paramount Conquest – indoor team building activity

Right here in sunny Singapore, oh wait, make that rainy, oh wait, well.. you get what I mean. As the weather fluctuates between hot & wet and pretty much it in our tropical island, we have had many requests for team building activities that can be held indoors, and yet active enough to get participants on their feet. We at änergy understand this need and we’d like to cater to that need and meet your objectives of a fruitful team building activities session with learning values to take away.

Let me introduce Paramount Conquest, which is our best-selling indoor team building program. Our senior trainer developed this game to involve everyone with a few objectives in mind. This game may be done indoors, but it is a fast-paced decision making game that has roles for everyone to fill, and participate. In a nutshell, this game simulates a mountaineering expedition to the top of the mountain, which we call Mount Olympus, and to get back to the base within the stipulate time frame (survival time frame we call it), with as much money collected at the top of the mountain.

Within the game, there are various obstacles that the mountaineers have to brave, such as different daily weather, bandits and managing their own resources that will sustain them through the expedition. Elements of chance, prudent planning and team dynamics come into play on this exhilarating journey. the winning team is determined by the amount of resources harvested at the end of the journey – that is, if they manage to make it back in time! As part of the game, there will be surprises thrown in to thwart the team’s initial planning, but we have facilitators on hand to keep the team on the move and to assist any doubts the team might have.

After conducting this activity over the past 10 years, our facilitators and trainer have anticipated all kind of responses and team dynamics, and we’re pleased to say that this is one activity that is suitable for all genre of people and age groups and I personally would recommend this game if you have not tried it yourself. We have customised this activity for a certain cosmetic company, and instead of “cash”, the objective was to collect pearls. Do let us know if you have specific objectives, and we can help to tweak the game to fit you perfectly.

At the end of the activity, a debrief will be conducted for all the teams to expound on the learning points behind the game

A sports car?  A go-kart? A swanky sedan? It’s all up to your imagination when it comes to our Ultimate Roadster teambuilding activity. Employing the use of ordinary materials such as carton boxes, teams are given the task to construct from scratch a really mobile kart!

Recently, this team building activity was conducted in Xiamen, China for a group of 300+ pax. The event was held indoors, and a large ballroom was cleared of furniture to accommodate the activity. It was a blast as the event kicked off with mass games, and the whole group of 300+ were divided up into 3 smaller groups and the atmosphere was electric as competition abounded with cheers and applause and some playful jeering at each other filled the air.

When the Ultimate Roadster activity was introduced, everyone was listening intently to the instructions, and once the materials were given out, the task was underway! Over a course of 2 hrs, the task was further challenged when surprise tasks were introduced to up the excitement and to bring the teams beyond what they thought they could achieve initially.

When all was taped down and secured, the karts were ready to go and a mini race-track was created in the middle of the ballroom for the Ultimate Roadster race! Teams revved up their engines with their legs, and once the horn was sounded, the karts ploughed through the room and the fastest kart emerged victorious!
