The 1OO year old historic ship Doulos Phos (Greek for Servant-Light) built in America in 1914,- only two years after the Titanic,- will now be permanently berthed at the reclaimed land off Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal at Bintan Resorts, Bintan Island, in the Riau Archipelago Province. Not only will the ship find a permanent port of call here, she will also be converted into a land-berthed Heritage Hotel equipped with resort-style facilities and an on-board maritime museum, come 3rd Quarter of 2015.
“We are very excited about the ship’s new home in Bintan. We are certain that with this unique concept of a ship-hotel, the Doulos Phos will add a new dimension to holidaying at the beautiful island of Bintan. Being so close to Singapore, and amongst world class resorts, she will greatly enhance Bintan Resorts' appeal to the international traveler”, stated Eric Saw, CEO of BizNaz Resources International , the ship’s owner and leader of the project, as quoted from its Press Release.
