Hamoni One Hotel & Deals ...

And also what are the places that must go?

ahqian,

I doubt you will have fun with the tour. That's the kind of tour that brings you to shop around their overpriced prices to cover for their cheap deal =) There isnt any must go places. But I suppose the big temple you are going to in the day tour is quite okay. Other than that, meh.... So don't expect much from the tour.

After 5pm you can go to Megamal, which is about 10-15 mins walking distance down one straight line. Just ask for direction. You can makan and watch movie there. If you want massage and stuffs, then better go to Nagoya Hill mall. More choices and options.

So really depends on what you want. You can go massage, spas, grocery, shopping, billiard, bowling, night life, etc etc.

Please visit our other threads for more info. Someone actually detailed the 1-day tour that most people take. It's more than enough for you to stay a whole week here =) hahahaa

Hi,

Thanks for the reply ...

I have a massage together with the deal bought ... So I guess that should be ok?

Hmmm ... But I can choose nt to buy at those over priced shops that they bring us to right ?

So there isn't really any place that is a must go?

Which is a better shopping mall with more things to shop?

But how's the hotel like ?

Ok ?

Yeah.. that is okay... just a reminder, usually we tip the masseuse about Rp 10,000-20,000 unless they did a horrible job. And if you don't like anything in the process or want harder or lesser strength, you can talk to them, request them, or even complaint.

you don't have to buy anything. They will just bring you there anyway.

Nagoya Hill mall would have more things to see, but Megamal is much closer to you.

Hotel is okay... go to the pool, my most favorite pool area in all batam hotels =) Room is more like a 3-star standard. And if you see anything floating in the middle of the night, just go back to sleep. hahahahahahaa.... j/k =)

All Batam malls closed at 10pm. But most of the shops start packing at 9.

Both Mega Mall and Nagoya Hill Mall has A&W resto. It might be too rush for u if u want to visit both malls since you might have your dinner there. Well, Nagoya Hill has many choices on everything, many messages, many shops, many ktv, many restaurants. While Megamall may give more relaxed atmosphere with its cafe selections. Well, starbucks and black canyon open in Mega Mall only. And the largest cinema complex in batam is also there.

Its your choice. Hope u enjoy your stay
