I had 3 travelling pax with me, 2 30+ year old, 1 60 year old and me - a 20++ year old. We stayed in the Harem Room and honestly, I wish nobody reads my review.
The website for Tempat Senang is really HORRIBLE. Tempang Senang, you LIED to me. That is because your website doesn't do justice to what compares in real life and I'm at a crossroad right now because a part of me says, "Please don't bother with reviews and see it to believe" and a HUGE part of me is yelling to me,"DON'T DO IT" because i really want Tempat Senang to be my own little dirty secret.
We were picked up by a Land Transport and within 10 mins, it was a magic carpet ride to a whole new world. (Pun intended to the whole "Aladdin" themed room). At the very second our land transport reaches Tempat Senang, we were greeted by their staffs and brought to the lobby. Once we stepped in, the staff explained on the spa menu and blablabla..Honestly i wasn't paying much attention as i was really captivated on how i totally feel like i was not in Batam but i really felt that i was in Bali instead. We were served a shot of Cold Lemongrass Drink and after selecting the Spa "services" that we preferred, we were served with the Nasi Campur. I really shouldn't mention about the food served because I would really not want to crave for it anytime..now.
Our room wasn't ready as we had arrived 2 hours before Check In time. When we checked into the room, we were all just speechless. Harem is highly recommended for an all girls night out, or rather night in. We even had a whole balcony and swimming pool to ourselves. Harem is a room in a villa which consists of other 4 themed rooms, China, Timor, Borneo and Madura. There's even a soundproof Cinema room. Smoking is not allowed in rooms, which I find very reasonable too. Tempat Senang was even considerate enough to provide mosquito repellent and mosquito spray for the comfort of their guests. All the tiny details are appreciated girls! Esp the bolster in the room. The whole feel made us all feel right at home and honestly we wished that we didn't have to leave the room. We had a "California King Bed" all to ourselves! No fighting on who gets more pillows for this room at all! Like i mentioned earlier, reviews and picture doesn't do justice, at all.
After dolling up in our provided Batik Kimonos,at 1pm, we were escorted to the Spa. A friend and I had the Office Massage while another friend and her mom had the Lomi Lomi Massage. So we had separate rooms. I can't speak for the rest but mine was definitely perfect! The masseuse was attentive and i really felt totally relaxed. I was quite skeptical when the Spa Menu mentioned that I will feel "energetic" and I was so proven wrong! I had mentioned that I had dislocated my shoulders and she was more gentle on that area. Do inform masseuse on your "weak spots" and I am pretty sure that you will have an experience as perfect as mine. Next was the best ear candling i had ever done! It helped my sinus and migraine i was having earlier and she even "popped" my ears for me. Lastly, I had done a Tumeric Lulur. When she 1st started massaging she had put a cold herbal eye mask and then during scrubbing she placed a warm herbal eyemask. Again this tiny detail was a huge gesture as it helped me calmed my nerves and relaxed me. I was so won over, i even got myself 5 eye mask from the Spa Shop.
After all 4 of us are done with our sessions, we were warmly greeted by all their staffs and we all felt like a million bucks (or maybe more due to the inflation)!
We then hired a taxi to take us to Wey Wey Seafood for 3hrs. Now i wished i had tried their pizzas instead :(. However we had a good breakfast for champions and i truly recommend their Nasi Goreng. Upon checkout, we went crazy at their Spa Shop. I had to force myself to stop!
The distance to Tempat Senang from Skupang is around 10 mins. From Tempat Senang to Wey Wey Seafood is around 15 - 20 mins and from Tempat Senang to Batam Megamall is around 20 - 25 mins. The distance is not as agonizingly long like i had assumed it to be. Communication is key so i recommend that you have a clear plan to the staff and i'm confident that you will be treated like royalty.
Now i would like to ask Tempat Senang to cure me. Cure my friends and I from this addiction to Tempat Senang. We would love to return soon and I hope not many people will read this because really, everyone should just stop reading this and just experience it yourself.
One thing i would like to complain and whine about? (Because there will be skeptics like the pre Tempat Senang me) I wish i had known everyone by name then that would make me feel more like home. So next time if i return, i know i would only be going home.
Do have a clear communication with Tempat Senang on your ideal getaway and you will not regret it!
