Given that most people haven't yet even heard of the Anambas islands, it stands to reason that regional and overseas travel agents have yet to market this neck of the woods. After all, most players in the travel and tourism industry understandably prefer to focus on more heavy-traffic beach holiday destinations of the world, such as Maldives, Hawaii and the Thai coast to name just a few.
This subsequently results in timelessly beautiful road untraveled territories like Anambas to remain just that: timeless and beautiful.
If you're the type of traveler that shies away from mass tourism destinations, instead seeking out the world's last few remaining paradise destination gems, like Anambas, then read on.
The Anambas archipelago comprises over 200 blissfully idyllic islands, most of which are untouched, even undiscovered and certainly still unspoilt, by tourism. In fact, Anambas is quite possible Asia's last hidden paradise.
The islands' sense of mystique, quite palpable until today, is arguably its most valuable asset, closely followed of course by their breathtaking coastlines, stunning panoramas and transporting sunsets.
It's not for nothing that CNN named Anambas amongst the most attractive island oases in the whole of Asia.

Budgets vary from simple rooms with aircon and hot water shower on the one end of the scale, to pretty up-market, including a fair number of amenities to increase the pamper level.
By the way, Anambas also offers homestay and dorms.
One item to clarify is that Internet and Wi-Fi may not always be at the quality or the speed you're used to back home. This is part of the trade-off of taking the road not yet travelled. So if you were going to reserve your hotel room by email, then do keep in mind that the reservation confirmation may take a while to get to you.
