A beautiful little spot in Batam, with absolutely gorgeous rooms. My family I stayed in Borneo and Madura rooms, and both rooms totally rocked our worlds. Each room had its own distinct personality and just blew our minds. Kudos to the owner, Jasmine Borschberg, for such awesome room designs. Kudos also to Martha and Bustami and the rest of the staff at Tempat Senang, who made our stay at a beautiful place, just even more wonderful! I would definitely recommend all my friends to give this place a try. Especially thankful to Martha for her patience and amazingly prompt responses in replying to my countless emails asking all sorts of questions about Tempat Senang. Also thankful to Bustami, as his hospitable nature really showed through during our stay.
However regarding the massage, generally all four of us felt it was just "so-so", not sure if we were just unlucky in this department, as we came during a somewhat busy period. My parents even said they could do without the massage and body scrubs, and would love to just be able to have a few nights stay in this beautiful and peaceful place.
- Wifi access from Borneo and Madura was still quite strong and reasonably fast.
- They have a rather big collection of DVDs, but don't be expecting HD quality stuff.
- Didn't really like the Sprite chicken, it sure was tender and juicy but flavor wise lacked a bit of "oomph", as I prefer my chicken marinated with a little bit more spice and some heat(they should let us opt for a "spicy" chicken perhaps?)
