“Superbly nice and caring staff with good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The hotel is located near the ferry (5 min) drive and we had a smooth check in to the hotel. Mr Antono, one of the staff was very kind to help us to prepare the band to sing a birthday song for us. It was very nice of them. They were attentive and provide fast room service.

Room Tip: Room facing the ocea and pool

It's my first time staying this hotel. Just learned this hotel is only 20 Km away from Singapore when planing my business trip to SIG, but in different country, Indonesia! Fair price with warm hotel stuff and room with excellent sea view! You may even see Singapore from room. Nice room, good stuff with beautiful swinging pool, but a bit far away from the city! It'd cost you about 45 mins to 1 hour to get back to city.

Room Tip: A good getaway resort hotel!

Very convenient as the resort is very close to the golf. Rooms are pleasant, huge, well maintained and cleaned. The only inconvenient is that the walls are very thin so it can be noisy. Swimming pool is nice and welcome after golf. Spa also is nice even if a little expensive. Service is friendly and helpful. Overall, for a short golf gateway I will recommend this hotel.

Dear Valued Guest,

We thank you for your valuable compliments!

Batam View is located near to two golf courses which are about 5 minutes away. So for golfing, it is very convenient to play.

Our Nongsa Golf tournament is coming up on 27 Oct, 2013, please do remember to sign up with us to enjoy your early bird discount! It will be lots of fun to mingle with lots of golfers!

Do contact our reservation @ reservation@batamview.com to obtain more information for our Nongsa Golf tournament!

We look forward to serving you again.

Unfortunately, all my annual leave days are now reserved for anticipated exam days since I returned to school, so I have only time to do weekend getaways these days. Therefore Joo and I decided to give Batam a shot since we'd never been there, no thanks to the many bad reviews we'd read.

We're lazy so bought their " Lifestyle spa package", which included 3 meals, 1 night's accommodation, 2-way ferry plus hotel shuttle, and spa massage (we don't care about sea sports and shopping). Though the ferry was a bit of a shock, I'm not here to review the ferry, so let's focus on the resort…

The room wasn't ready when we arrived at 10-ish AM, so we left our bags at the concierge and wandered around the resort. We were strolling towards the beach when a nice smell wafted into my nose just as we went by the cafe. It was coriander! They have pots of it planted outside the cafe's kitchen. I'm a fan of potted herbs and grow some myself. The resort also grows organic vegetables and use them in their own kitchen. We walked through a garden of fruit trees, herbs and spices before heading off to lunch at Wangi Melati Cafe. The food here is frankly quite up to standard. We had yummy Tumpeng Nasi Kuning served with local fried chicken and an assortment of local side dishes and crackers.

After lunch, it was time to check in. We had requested for a high floor room with view but they gave us a pool-facing room! The resort building is sort of a crescent-shape so the noisy pool is INSIDE the crescent. We demanded for a room-change and got into Room 449 - which was actually a smoking room, but was mercifully odourless. Ah… it was a sea-view and noise-free at last.

After showering, we headed to 5th Dimension Spa on level 5. While we like the sea-facing massage rooms and ginger tea, we reckoned we've had better massages. It was a bit painful (yelped a bit) and I felt more "busy" than relax. The head massage was good though.

The sun was almost setting by the time we're done with the massage. We were glad to get a west-facing sea-view room. Although we didn't get a proper sunset due to cloudy sky, the view was still romantically gorgeous.

At dinner, a mix of local and western dishes were served. The Chili Con Carne was outstanding. We also helped ourselves to Mediterranean fish, assorted antipasti and bruschetta, mutton stew, local vegetables, Fish Wellington, pasta, chilli chicken, local kueh, fruits and Pulut Hitam. We really rather like the food here. A humble suggestion would be to include some vegetarian dishes into the buffet. I witnessed an Indian gentleman walking into the cafe only to find nothing suitable for him to eat.

A live band performed at Islander Lounge. While the band members were very engaging, the music was too loud for my liking. However, I should mention that this lounge served the best Pussy Foot mocktail I've ever tasted. We ended the evening with a stroll out to somewhere around the Kelong seafood restaurant to catch some sea breeze.

Overall, despite some minor communication breakdown, we had a pleasant stay. Service was good. Thank you.

We booked a deluxe room. The room was huge with more space. But the look of the room was only ok. Not upto the standard. There was no lcd tv only a normal tv which was disappointing as nowadays many resorts have rooms with lcd tv. The floors are not clean. The bathtub is not good. The room service is good. The room had balcony which is good.
The swimming pool is small and water is average. There are only 2 restaurants available. So there is no more choice for variety. The breakfast is good. For dinner, kelong seafood restaurant is good. But many items are not available which left us disappointing. There was games room with xbox which was good.
Overall experience is not satisfactory. If you want a nice experience, go for a more pricey resort and this is not an ideal choice.

Dear Valued Guest Harini,


Thank you for your valuable feedback and staying in our Deluxe Sea View Room.

Your comments have been passed on to our various Head of Departments and I am sure that they will look into it and make the necessary improvements. Feedbacks like this are important to us, for without it we cannot strive to serve you better and I would like to thank you for it.

Currently we are in the midst of upgrading our TVs and by year end; all our rooms will have LED TVs. Similar work is also being done on all our bath tubs and by year end; they should be in a much better condition.

Your comments on the variety of food at our Kelong are also noted and the chefs have been tasked to look into it.

You will also be pleased to know that we are adding a ‘Bakar (Grilled)’ section at the restaurant soon.

Thank you also for your positive comments on our breakfast, Kelong Seafood Restaurant, Room Service and X Box activities at the Play Room.

We will be further enhancing our activities and food to make your next visit a more memorable one.

See you soon.

Our warmest regards,
Amanda Shirley Tan
