Went for a 4D3N stay at Turi Resort at the Tirta Wing.
Took a 30 min ferry ride from Singapore Tanah Merah Ferry terminal to Nongsapura ferry terminal at Batam. Was happy to find complimentary shuttle service at the terminal to the resort.
Checking in was a breeze, staff was friendly and the view at the reception is just stunning. We were given a room on the 2nd floor. We upgrading to 1 x king size bed, and the room was clean and simple - with high ceiling and full length window overlooking the resort swimming pool and the sea - really great.
Am a sucker for bathroom cleanliness - have to say the bathroom is spacious and clean, no bath tubs though.
Food wise, you can choose to stay in the resort to dine in - they have different restaurants offering different cuisine types. Read reviews that the food is pricey, but in all honesty, the service and food quality is good given the price. If you wish to get cheaper food, just reach out to the friendly frontdesk staff for a taxi to Batam Centre or Nagoya Hill.
I have to mention that the breakfast buffet lineup is impressive, every day's menu gets better. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming, makes the start of your day real great :)
In terms of activities, the resort offers water sports (didn't try any though) and spa treatment. Tried a 60min massage - it was alright. Good thing is they cater to couples with couple massage rooms. You can also check out the pool area, which overlooks the sea - great place to chill and relax.
With all the good reviews given, I have only one qualm about my stay - once night falls, walking within the resort can be quite a scary experience. It is fine at the heart of the resort where the restaurants are and the area is brightly lit. But walking around the rooms area, poolside or beachfront can be tough with lowly lit lights. Hope that the hotel management can do something about that.
All in all, it was a good trip. Will definitely visit again for a quick and relaxing getaway.
Would like to give special thanks to Mr. Adhitya who served us at the frontdesk - very friendly and attentive staff :)
