First time to batam

Hey all,

This is gonna be my first time travelling to batam. I was thinking of staying at turi beach resort, is that a good place?

And i would like to know the best places to shop, for some designer stuff and all.

and im also very interested in the outdoor activities.

i would like to know the best places to go kart, paintball, and etc.

And i am a major foodie, i wanna try the best local cuisine and seafood.

Oh, i also want to go for a full body massage and spa. Any reccomandations?

Im also looking for a personal driver, one that speaks english.

Will be going with the girlfriend too, anything romantic in mind? ;)

Thank you in advance for your help :)

Ravinder $165 for a night including ferry tix is a good deal for tourists. But just to be safe, e-mail or go to Turi's website and check for some offers.

If you are staying in Turi then don't go to either go-cart. The distance is far and when you are done you will be like "bah... its not worth my 1 hour drive".

Thank you so much mate!

I've been doing my research on this site , still abit unsure on this though, since turi beach resort is so far from everything, can you please recommend a hotel, which is near the malls and spas?
