“Thinking of Bintan? Try Turi Beach Resort at Batam first!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Being only 40 min ferry from Taneh Merah, this is an excellent choice for a short weekend away with the kids. Bintan takes over an hour, and by then, you're checked into your room at Turi Beach Resort. We came here with another family and we all had a fantastic weekend. The rooms are comfy, modern and spacious. Beds a bit too hard for my liking, but for two nights, it was ok. Breakfast buffet suitable, and the Saturday evening BBQ could have had a few more local choices. Watersports at your doorstep make for a fun day. Bad points - STAIRS. We were traveling with 3 children in prams, and there is only stair access to the pool area. Quite difficult when no one around to help you lift the strollers. Putting in a ramp to the pool would make any future trips better. Bottled water no easily provided. The hotel notes the room water is not potable, yet will only provide 2 bottles of water per room, per day! This is not enough for parents traveling with young children who need to sterilise water to wash and refill baby bottles. Housekeeping would not provide more than an extra 2 bottles.
Overall, a great weekend away, and will stay again.

Room Tip: 4th, 3rd and 2nd floors access via lift. 1st floor requires you to carry luggage down some stairs to...

A nice, relaxing resort for short getaway 35mins away from Sg. Its so wonderful that our room faces the sea. However, there's a slight lack of privacy as other people can walk right into your balcony & see right into the room. Hassle free travel as Transfer to & from the ferry terminal is readily available & wherever you wanna go, the concierge can arrange for a cab who can drive you around & wait for you as you eat & shop. Booking fee for 3 hours is Rp220,000 as at our travel dates.

Very glad to read your favourable feedback… thank you… Please be informed that each room in Tirta Wing has a balcony access door with a latch to ensure privacy if you are either in the balcony or in the room itself… We will inspect all units to ensure that every access door is installed and in good working order… Sorry for that… Cheers… Antonio

Went here with 5 of my friends. All of us enjoy the stay! We got connecting room (as requested by us) & two very nice view rooms! With the view of swimming pool & sea! The room is spacious and quite clean, but one of the room have sands over the floor. We didnt managed to get our room when we arrived as the room are still not ready. So we took cab to go out to Nagoya hill at RP $180,000 (Cos we have extra 1 adult & 1 children. The price is quoted by the individual driver. He quoted us RP$200,000 initially. But we bargain with him & we want a return trip. So he agree with the price that we request. For the normal price, it is standard. 4 pax for RP $110,000 one way to Nagoya Hill.) After coming back, we ordered their room service for dinner. The food wasn’t that fantastic. We went for swimming the second day morning at 7am. To our surprise, the water was not cold at all! In fact, the water temperature is so nice! The only downside is the towel counter is always closed. From we went swimming until finished swimming, we didn’t managed to get the towel. The pool is not a big one and the old one is under renovation. We love their breakfast there! The food are nice & the spread are good. Too bad the jetty is still closed. Their staff are friendly & helpful too! Overall, we enjoyed the trip & definitely will be going back there again!

This is to show my appreciation for trusting us with your next vacation in Batam… Please accept our sincere apologies for not being able to provide you with a fantastic room service dinner… Mr. De Silva – New Director of Food and Beverage – is currently reviewing the entire culinary aspects of the resort to provide each of our guests with a fresh and renewed experience. We took note of your pool comment… we will place a phone next to the pool counter to ensure that guests can avail towels when the pool counter is closed. The Aqua pool enhacement works shall be completed by the end of April or early May. May I be of any assistance to you or your network, please contact me via antonio@nongsaresrots.com Cheers… Antonio

I stayed there twice with friends and for company retreat.

It is a decent hotel. Pools nice but housekeeping in the room could have been better. There was some stains in the bathroom.

Buffet breakfast and dinner were ok.

Booked a short weekend break thru Groupon and was given the room we requested on the Tirta Premier wing which gave us splendid view of the emerald pool and the south china sea. Being on the fourth floor, the breeze was lovely.
The twin room was clean and the balcony added a lovely outdoor living space which was used to gaze into the ocean.
Breakfast was pretty extensive but by 9.30am, most food were not replenished and the clearing up was dead on time - 10am ! It would have been nice if a ten minute grace is given especially with the yogurt and fruit.

Fusion buffet spread served a good spread of local as well as international food however I find it a bit pricey after the tax. We were approached by one of the restaurant representative about the fusion dinner in the lobby and was sold by the extensive menu attached with the price excluding tax (21%). Drinks were not included apart from tea or coffee and I find them a bit pricey too.
All the price listed in the menu was without tax but when the bill is presented, we always get a slight shock on how much more we had to pay. I think it is better to have all price quoted, to include all hidden tax and charges. There was also a dinner and dance event held at the emerald pool with a stage and proper emcee. So it got very annoying when the singers from the fusion dinner buffet clashed voices with the presenters or singer from the corporate event. It was clear and very loud and most times, highly annoying especially during the time when the singer from the restaurant takes a break. We could hear all that was being announced from the corporate event stage.

The 2 emerald pool was lovely and clean. As we arrived on a quiet weekend, there were plenty of sun lounges. The beach was only a few metres away and very clean.
I had a very relaxing time there, enjoying a tranquil moment either by the pool or on the balcony of the room.

I also went for a full Indonesian massage at the spa. It was good to start with but a little annoying towards the end, as the masseur started to fall asleep. And the massage stopped 10 minutes before time was up.

My one other suggestion would be for the management to provide free wi-fi and then it would have been almost perfect.

Pros:

1) The room was big and spacious and provided a good view of the sea
2) The swimming pool was very clean and we enjoyed our swim in it. The bar at the pool played nice music too so it's very good just to sit there, suntan and chillax
3) It's very windy throughout we stay there and it was really refreshing just to sit by the beach and let our minds relax
4) We were fully recharged after our stay in the resort over the weekend
5) Breakfast was good
4) Hotel transfer provided both ways and were timely

Cons

1) The resort is secluded and to get to the city centre you have to either take a cab or pay for the hotel's shuttle
2) There's no provision store near the resort and food and drinks at the resort are very expensive. Beer is SGD$7.5 and a typical meal around SGD$15 per pax.
3) Except for the swimming pool, you have to pay to enjoy all other activities at the resort

Room Tip: Bring your own snacks and beer from Singapore else it will be very expensive to buy at the resort. A...

Very glad to read your stay feedback analysis… thank you very much for your time and inputs… Having to import most of the items from Singapore or having to pay them in Singapore dollars prevent us from providing lower rates in certain products or services; on the other hand, you can enjoy daily happy hour from 5 pm to 7 pm. The boutique shop is currently adding new items while you will be able to find a larger minimart in Nongsa Point Marina and Resort – sister property just 5 minutes’ walk along the beach. Activity wise, we provide a daily calendar of free and paid activities organized from the Cabana Club located in the seafront. Wish we have the opportunity to welcome you back and improve your last experience in the resort. please contact me directly if I can be of any assistance. Cheers. Antonio

Was planning for a short trip on the 09-10March2013 with my partner and our colleagues recommended us this resort. Was abit reluctant and hesitate to choose this as one of our destination after we read all the reviews on this resort. However, we decided to give it a try and be adventurous. (honestly, the pictures of the resort that won our heart)

Looked through the website and saw that they have some promotions for travel agent’s staffs (I’m working under the travel industry) and that promotion/rate is quite attractive. However, didn’t get to book our accommodation under this promotion as they require us to give them our staff card (with self-photo and id number) which my company don’t have that. But this didn’t dampen our spirit. We managed to get another promo from Plus! BigDeal. Purchase the vouchers and booked for our accommodation.

The communications through email with the reservations was really fast and they do reply us within 24hrs and assist us with whatever enquiry we had. They even assist us to book the BBQ Fusion buffet dinner.

Check-in was fast and easy eventhough there were other travelers onboard the same transfer with us. We do not need to wait so long eventhough we reached the resort before the official check-in time.

First impression – WOW! The view from the hotel lobby, the structure of the resort is beyond amazing. Every rooms are with seaview and if you’re lucky, you will have room with seaview and also the Emerald pool. Just the view from the hotel lobby already made a good impression of the resort. It was breathtaking. We got room #310 which is actually abit far from the lift lobby. The room, the bathroom is spacious and we can actually run around the room (But the flooring do need a little bit of policing as they do looked abit dirty) The balcony was the nicest spot among all and we actually sat for hours just to chat while looking at the sea, the jetty and swimming pool lighted up at night and with the wind blowing on our faces. It was really amazing.

We stayed within the resort during our stay and was mostly by the swimming pool or the beach. It was really relaxing. The structure of the pool is really amazing as we got to admire the sea while dipping in the swimming pool.

Went for the BBQ Fusion buffet dinner. It was a good spread and plenty of choices. (It will be better if there are more seafood choices) and the best part was, we won 2nd prize during the lucky draw. It really made our day.

Overall, this is an amazing place to relax and stay away from our hectic days back at home. The view is so amazing and no words can describe it any further. It’s really worth the money to be here eventhough most of the things are quite expensive. The staffs are all friendly and helpful and do made us feel homely. We will definitely plan to go come again and to redeem our prize too. We seriously made the right choice to choose this resort for our trip.

We did enjoyed staying over at this resort and thanks to everyone that assist us.
Good job!
