Just 45mins from Singapore and 15mins drive from Sekupang ferry terminal, the little gem of a spa resort in Batam is quite a treat. Its unique feature is that it has just 14 rooms all done up in various exotic themes catering mainly to couples and small groups, but recently it created a room just for solo travellers and lucky me got it despite making a last minute booking. The hook is that a 3-hr spa treatments comes with both the 3D/2N and 2N/1D package. And you can choose from a range of massages/facial/bodywraps/hair treatments etc, and could add on other items if you want to. It's not a luxurious spa but the treatments are enjoyable and the service is good and warm.
Food's good even though you have to pre-order lunch and dinner hours before you eat as the kitchen staff needs to prepare before hand and they leave by 8pm! My favourite part of the resort though it's this gorgeous blue pool with a cascade which I had all to myself in the afternoon when the other guests were away for their spa treatments!
The China room for solo travellers is small but comfortable with an en-suite shower. At night, there's hardly any outside attractions to go out to and TV reception is terrible but the good folks ingeniously offers a huge movie library of DVDs and avi/MP4 files that you can borrow and watch in the privacy of your room! Free Wi-Fi available in the lobby and pool areas, and though it can be weak in the rooms, if you are lucky, you can still whatapps, instagram or Facebook. Room also provides free coffee, hot water, and lots of bottled water in the mini fridge.
Great place to relax, chill, and get away from it all. Advisable to bring additional drinks and snacks if you are the type, like me, who gets hungry often. Recommended.
