“Awesome view and nice place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2009

I would rave over the friendliness of the hotel staffs.

There were a couple of hiccups with the aircon but the staffs were really nice and it did not dampen our spirits for a good holiday there. They were also very efficient with the services and made us felt really comfortable there.

The stay is worth it if u choose the Executive suite as the room is really spacious..and promises you a view of the sea and/or swimmming pool which is really scenic.
I tried the normal suite and it's a far cry from the executive. Normal suite has no view and relatively small. Nothing impressive so to speak. An SGD20 upgrade fee to an executive suite was worth every penny. For a 'budget' traveller, I think it was a good deal.

The place is packed with Singaporeans so if you're one, you won't feel foreign..Can be a good thing for you don't feel out of place but bad coz you'll feel like u're not out of the country. Travelling to the city can be a real drag so I would suggest to hire a taxi driver. The rate is way cheaper than calling a cab from the hotel. Take note, Nongsa area is very far from any shopping place. Takes you about 45 mins.

The breakfast buffet spread is awesome!! Hmm..Western breakfast and lots of Singaporean breakfast favourites like fried kway teow ,fish congee and even prata!

The resort is a short drive from the ferry terminal, and buses/vans going to the resort pick you up from the terminal when you arrive. Service is good - the people are friendly and helpful. The rooms are airy and spacious, with a nice little open balcony and I had no problems, except for the fact that the open village style environment invites lizards. They don't disturb you and if you don't mind seeing a vanishing tail here and there, they mostly shouldn't pose a problem.

  • Liked — spacious, lots of greenery
  • Disliked — lot of walking/climbing stairs to get around the resort

Might not return to this hotel anymore as it is far away from town,the beaches also seems like not suitable for swimming,coffee house service not attentive even it was on a quiet afternoon,beware of the taxi sevice as the staff might wrongly charge you extra hours and what i think the most pathetic of all - S$2 for some ice cube in a 4 Stars hotel !

The one thing that really stands out with this resort is the genuine friendliness of the staff. Without exception from the front desk to the maid, everybody really tried to make our stay very enjoyable. We upgraded to a beach side villa which was superb. The beach is disappointing but the pool is amazing and there is no need to go any further. Its a great place for young families & teenagers with water sports available and there is a nightclub on site. The next resort has a superb golf course which is available to residents, so there is plenty to do for everybody. Batam is quite a poor island, so they are really trying hard to attract the foreign tourist with an excellent package.

It was a great place to stay! Service is good, room is beautiful and spacious, the bed is very comfortable, excellent pool, great view from the room. Nothing more I can ask for.

The only thing is that the location is quite far (around 40mins) from the City if you want to shop. And the taxis out are quite expensive. So if you want to stay here, be prepared to pay for the taxi.

If you just want a relaxing holiday, this is a good place to stay for the weekend.

The hotel is really decent. Although unlike 5 star hotels, they make up for it with cleanliness, friendly staff & you can see they really tried hard to create other amenities inside the hotel so you won't have to go out and find other things to do. Taxi to the town is expensive (so I guess it's one reason why you'd rather stay in the hotel). I'm not crazy about the beach but their pool is in great shape!

Tips I wish we did when we were there:

-NOT convert our SG$ to RP because ALL the payments made in the hotel is in SG and if you pay by RP it's more expensive!!! (unless you want to go out of the resort)

-make sure you book 1 day in advance for special activities like Tour of the Town etc (when we inquired to do it on the same day, they said you have to book in advance)

-Find out the time for the FREE shuttle service to the town because the free shuttle only operates once a day at a certain time

-asked if they accept reservations for their seafood resto (Kelong Seafood) because we didn't get a chance to eat there due to the overly busy staff.

  • Liked — cleanliness
  • Disliked — not much food choices within the area
