This is a fabulous place for a short break away from the hussling and bustling of Singapore. A place to disconnect from the world (no TV, no phone) in an ultra connected world....No, you are not going there to do some work in such a beautiful resort. And honestly you shouldn't. The food is stunning. The creativity of the chef... More

We stayed at this resort for five nights. We had a lovely holiday, but there are pros and cons of this resort. Before I list them, I would go back again. Pros: The food was fabulous. I had no complaints about any meal and thought the chef did an amazing job. The island is beautiful. The beaches are beautiful, the... More

As soon as you step off the boat and on to the jetty at Batu Batu you know that you're in for something special. The white sandy beaches, crystal blue ocean and beautiful green palms feels like you have arrived in paradise. The accommodation was basic but clean and suited us perfectly. Our group opted for beach villas S3, S4... More

This could be an amazing romantic retreat for couples, but the place caters to families. The rooms (which are individual bungalows) include nice amenities and are clean and quite large. The beds are comfortable. The rates seem so reasonable, but they don't include meals and no prices are posted. Don't be surprised to pay more than double your room rate... More

Breathtaking. First day in the island and it already felt like home. Everything was perfect, from the clear water & white sand, to loads of water activities (snorkeling, kayaking, diving - missed out on that one), jungle trekking, beautiful villa, swimming pool, and fantastic food & great service. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Visiting Batu Batu is... More

Batu Batu is easily accessible from Singapore which makes this resort very appealing. Despite a full car of ‘how much longer’ we arrived at the ferry terminal in a little more than 3 hours after leaving home. Timing is something you want to be mindful of as the ferry to Batu Batu doesn’t operate throughout the day – I believe... More

Batu Batu - a stunning private island resort off the coast of Mersing on the East Coast of Peninsula. We loved the serenity of the deserted beaches, the rustic but clean and spacious villas, and the staff who were superb and attentive. We celebrated our son's third birthday there and felt really looked after by the whole team, but especially... More

This was our first time staying in this resort.It is great for couples, and families. I recommend booking the beach villas S1 - S8 , which are located south of the main restaurant. The long bar offers great views and the beach is absolutely amazing. Clear water & white sand (just like a postcard) . The dive center offers various... More

Batu Batu is a very nice place with decent & spacious villa's, where the ones with CHildren's annex actually allow kids to have their own space away from the parents... great is that :) We spent most time on long beach - nice beach, crystal water and a bar ;-) Quite relaxing and always a good atmosphere.
