I thought my holiday was ruined the moment I checked in for my ferry at Harbour Front. It was the Chinese New Year festive break and almost everybody were heading to Batam for the nice long break. The ferry check in took about 1.5hrs in Singapore and upon reaching Batam, there was another long snaking queue......
We were picked up right outside the terminal and sent to the resort, a short drive of about 10-15mins. Checked in and went straight to the room. I must say the room is spacious with a separate dining, living and bed area. No complaints about it as everything was neat, tidy and clean. The only exception was probably the sofa covers were a little old and dirty looking. Well, not a new property but good to have nice clean covers :) Housekeeping also needs to improve on their overall, as they seem to keep missing out on replacing tissues, towels etc and had to call for items to be replaced.
The resort had the usual swimming pool, spa, paintball, karaoke etc. I did not manage to enjoy the mentioned facilities as me and my wife spent most of our 3 days out at the shopping mall. Oh, the resort provides x3 transport runs to and pickup from Nagoya and BCS shopping mall.
I must also comment that the staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to ensure things run well. So thank you for that!
Overall, while the resort was full, it did not feel overly crowded, except for maybe during breakfast timing. Noise level also wasn't a big problem for us during the stay.
Will head back there again but maybe not during the peak timing.
