The website should have warned us. So this is my warning to new guests.
There is nowhere to get food, so if you do not have transportation - go somewhere else. We arrived in a taxi (100,000 idr from Batam Centre) and were told to go buy our own groceries and cook in the villa. The nearest supermarket is 9 km away!
You can walk over to Turi Resort for dinner, but it nearly killed my wife walking up and down 3 hills (bridge is still broken) in 32 deg. C - luckily we had a ride back by the friendly staff of Turi Beach. A simple dinner was 800,000 idr for 5 adults. (in a food court Golden Land in Batam we paid 350,000 idr for an excellent sea food meal for 5)
The surroundings are nice, villas have everything, are clean, everything works - except cleaning - and drinking water was not supplied on a daily basis (normally you get one bottle a day), so better bring a lot.
You feel like this is the end of the world - we literally did not see anyone, but a few squirrels and sparrows. Bring your children or grandchildren to give the place a bit of life.
