After getting reviews from some friends and reading up on the various types of villas within Montigo, I decided to book the Montigo Resorts at Nongsa Batam as advance birthday gift for my hubby who is simply a fan of resort holidays. I got my booking through agoda.com and got a hill top villa. There are 3 types of villas situated tiered at 3 levels - Seafront (lowest tier nearest facing the sea, hillside villa (middle tier) and hill top bvilla (top tier, highest villa). All 3 tiers give a similar panaromic view of the sea. However, if you only want to see the sea and not the view of other villas, you can select the seafront view which usually is slightly more costly. Not much diff if you ask me.
We arranged for a pickup at Nongsa ferry terminal with Montigo at about 10.30am. The drive was 5min away.
Staff - Very friendly and their service was awesome. Buggies appear at our door when we need them.Angkat, one of the staff from Tadd's restaurant really impressed us by arranging for the kitchen to prepare a portion of really authentic spicy sambal upon our request as I love spicy stuff and I find their chilli too mild for me. Dian, their recreation staff was a joy to be with on our 2 hr bike trail. Lilia, the recep lady in charge of our stay was thoughtful in making sure our logistical needs were well taken care of. I always believe that staff are the people who make the trip truly special.
Lodging - The villa was impressively huge and beautiful, just like in the pictures, Good for families and gatherings for 4-5pax. Spotted some ants, insects and bugs in rooms though which didn't really bother me after spraying some insecticide around. I was too busy enjoying myself and I take it that I'm in the arms of real nature. :) The mini fridge items and mineral water were free flow to our surprise and gets top up every day of your stay.
Amenities and food - Did not get to use the gym but it looks well equipped. Buggies were everywhere which made places easily accessible. The buffet breakfast spread was good and to my liking and prices at the other restaurants were also pretty reasonable.
All in all, both me and my hubby really enjoyed our 2 nights stay at Montigo. I would highly recommend anyone to consider this resort if you want a short getaway from singapore but want a different experience from the usual busy and bustling Batam hotels. I felt that the luxurious price was well worth the bucks with the exclusivity that came with it.
