What is a Kelong?

Kelong is a Malay word to describe a form of offshore platform built predominantly with wood, and can be found in waters off Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia, while only a handful remains around Singapore due to rapid urbanisation. Kelongs are built by fishermen primarily for fishing purposes, although larger structures can also function as dwellings for them and their families.

The Kelong @ Punggur Bay is an experience like no other – located just a short ferry ride away from Singapore and a refreshing speedboat ride from Batam island, it provides the perfect balance of comfort and a one-of-a-kind Kelong living, where you get to observe our fishing nets being raised and eat the fish that we catch fresh daily, while enjoying nice beds and modern amenities. The Kelong is also not short on entertainment; we’re equipped with various games and an entertainment system, and visitors can take boat rides out into the ocean to catch the stunning sunset. We promise an authentic, yet luxurious experience that you’re sure to enjoy.
