Booking the hotel was quite diff. I wanted to get a big room to fit in my family of 5 adults and 2 child. Emailed them to ask and was told that we could book their grand business suite which has 2 bedrooms. The price was great. Not too ex for a huge suite. But the hotel took quite some time to reply, so by the time we went to and fro with the emails, the room was already booked. (Btw, I couldn't find details of this room on their website.) Eventually I stopped emailing them and just booked myself 2 Junior suite rooms.
The hotel is quite a distance from the Batam Centre Ferry Terminal, but you can always arrange for a pick up (at a charge) or book a taxi from the terminal's ferry counter.
The rooms are great. Toilets are clean. Everything works fine. They have cable and free wifi. Sea view rooms are nothing fantastic. Well it's Batam I guess. Can't compare it to Bali or Maldives.
Facilities wise, gym is superbly equipped. Didn't have the chance to use the sauna but the pool is kinda small. Service was prompt and courteous and they provide a shuttle service 3 times daily to nearby malls.
Overall I'm quite happy with my stay here.
