The local hospitality group's beachfront resort, Angsana Bintan, has debuted the Rangers' Club, a new programme centred on outdoor exploration and adventure for children aged four to 11 years old.

Replacing the existing Kids' Club, it aims to immerse kids in an educational adventure which will enhance their overall development and communication skills, and encourages them to develop an appreciation of nature by involving them in a multi-sensory tour of Angsana Bintan's organic farm, observing animal habitats on a forest trail and creating handiwork from scavenged natural materials.

Angsana Bintan's current Live For Family package (from $300++), available until March 31, allows kids to stay, eat and play for free.
