Location is not bad if you arrive at Nongsa ferry terminal. Just a 5 min drive to the resort.
Got a deal off Groupon so I got a saving off the room rates.
Place is quite nice.. Very well maintained. Reception desk was very chaotic and they like to hold on to the passports for some reason or other. Made me and spouse wonder if the Indonesians were trying to be funny with our passports.
Room is clean and quite modern. Most rooms have sea views no matter which direction you face due to the location of the place.
We took a masssage package (the prince and princess one). I have been to better spa places with better ambiences. We were quite peaved while footing the bill that there was an additional 21% for GST and related taxes. Well we were partyly to blame for not knowing that everything you buy will come with the mandatory 21% tax.
We also tried the Kelong restaurant which was excellent although there was a substantial wait due to an increase in customer volume.
Overall staff are very friendly though it can be quite hard to communicate with most of them. However this is a general trend among the resorts in Bintan and Batam.
I would definitely come back for a quick weekend getaway if I get a good deal again..
