We booked a 2D1N stay as packaged by Spa Villas, which is situated inside KTM resort for 4 ladies to enjoy a relaxing spa and a quick getaway from Singapore.
They gave us Family Cottage 2 with a sea view that was partially blocked by a tree (Cottage 1 has an unobstructed seaview facing Singapore!) which is alright by us. The cottage is clean and cosy and the 2 rooms (1 with Queen bed and 1 with 2 single beds) had their own attached bathroom and shower stalls. The beds are comfy and clean enough.
Amenities include a small electric kettle, free tea and coffee, teaset for 4, a small fridge, bottled water, an electric cooker, a kitchen sink... All in all a good deal for the price we were paying. The bathroom had 2 clean (although a bit old) towels and even toiletries to use.
The resort is located very near Sekupang Ferry terminal (new and modern) - it took our driver around 5-10 minutes to get to the resort. The lobby staff had good command of English and were helpful and friendly.
In the resort there is a very sad outdoor karaoke stage and set up beside the sea water pool. The pool claimed to be therapeutic but the murkiness did not seem appealing enough for us to try it out. A convenience store selling stuff like beer, potato chips and ice cream opens till around 10pm I think.
There is free unlocked WiFi for the internet addicts. Not super fast, but it works. Taxis (old ones and drivers drive scary) are available to bring you to Batam Town about half an hour away, where Nagoya Hill shopping mall and the A&W are situated. For watersports and go kart, you should head to Waterfront City but it is lousy for shopping.
Great for families and couples for a fuss free weekend getaway that is value for money.
