I signed up a package which included the hotel stay, city tour and the 1 hour massage within the hotel.
The city tour is not fascinating as we are brought around to shops opened by the tour guide's boss. However, I really appreciate that the tour guide brought us to Diana's Handmade Kuey Lapis shop. Diana's kuey lapis tastes much better than other kuey lapis in Batam.
After a long day, we were brought to Golden View Hotel to rest for the day. The tour guide also helped us make an appointment with the spa for our 1-hour massage.
My HTB and I were surprised to see the spacious hotel. All toiletries are provided, except for facial towel. I am not sure if the hotel staff missed that out or the hotel does not provide, but we didnt question further.
The door of the shower corner is not fitted properly. Hence, water could easily flood the toilet.
The spa room is separated from the function room by a thin wall. On that fine night, there is one function ongoing and it was really disturbing when I wanted to relax during the massage. The staff is very skillful but I guessed they are very bored from massaging people all day long. Hence, they were chatting while massaging for the whole 1 hour! This 1-hour is certainly not a good experience for me.
