We were taken around and shown the villa facilities. Various small rooms. The private pools were cool but I wasn’t very impressed by the dark bathrooms. Seems more like a rustic chalet than a hotel, and yes I am super finicky and always check out the bathrooms first. It’s the deciding factor for me when it comes to accommodation. To me the appeal of Batam is that I don’t need to stay over and can return to my comfy bed in Singapore.
Each room had a different theme and this was the India theme.
After the spa we were brought to a dining area for dinner which came with our special spa package. It was a simple but tasty Indonesian meal. We ordered a cake as we were celebrating my cousin’s birthday but we found the cake rather dry. The hospitality here is excellent though – so warm unlike back home in Singapore. Really worlds apart.
