A frequent visitor to Batam, I’ve stayed in a few other hotels / resorts in Nongsa, Nagoya, Sekupang and Water Front areas. But to date, last weekend’s getaway at Holiday Inn Resort Batam is the best experience I’ve had!
The warmth in service exudes in every touch point, from my email correspondence with reservations prior to arrival, to the lovely reception at the front office, to answering our queries politely at concierge, and to meeting our requests in-room efficiently. I know that the resort was operating at full occupancy last weekend, being the Easter break, and I can imagine how tiring it must be to attend to guest after guest after guest. Thence, I am deeply impressed by the level of professionalism displayed by everyone in the team.
I thoroughly enjoyed the massage session at the in-house Tea Tree Spa. Again, here the service is impeccable! The ambience relaxes you and the treatment lulls your stresses away – I’m not exaggerating, it does this for me and I’m sure it will for you too.
FOOD – TERRACE CAFE
We had dinner once on our first night at the Terrace Café, as I was craving for good Indonesian food. Our Sup Buntut (Oxtail Soup) and Ayam Bakar Bumbu (Grilled Chicken) were all right but kind of pricey, I feel. Two main dishes and two drinks added up to 370,620 Rupiah (about SGD48). But it’s all good at breakfast - the spread of local, western and continental favourites is fantastic! I get to have my favourite slightly-burnt toast with scrambled eggs, baked beans, roasted potatoes, sausages & bacon, as well as have a taste of Bihun Goreng (Fried Vermicelli) among other Asian dishes.
Whilst not near the city areas, the resort provides shuttle service to and from Nagoya shopping area. Holiday Inn Resort may be one of the few hotels/resorts that provide this service complimentary, which is commendable.
Stay Relaxed is an apt agenda indeed for getaways at Holiday Inn Resort, Batam! I left feeling recharged and rejuvenated, more than ever.
