“Massage, hair cream bath & pedicure”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Arrange for free pick up from Batam Ferry Centre. Driver was ok, no complains there.
We had actually pre-booked our sessions via email. But when we reached there, my girlfriend who had originally booked a S$8 hair cream bath was told that this was not available and she had to choose another type of cream bath that would cost S$10 more!
I suspect this was to cover the "free" transport that they gave us.

Aromatherapy massage was not fantastic and I did not smell any aroma at all. More like a normal oil massage.

Pedicure cost S$22 but only normal scrubbing of the feet. I have gone for better ones where they really scrape the sole with razor. Here it is pretty ordinary.

Price is much too high for this area. Better to try other nearby salon which advertised a much lower price for all services.

Will not return cos I think they are out to fleece tourists.

“There are other alternatives.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

After reading about this place, decided to try it. Overall experience is not that fantastic. Pricing is a tad on the high side, considering the numbers of competitors around the vicinity. Masseuse tends to be younger women.

“So far soooooo good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Me and my wife like to go ESKA evrytime when we go to Batam for short trip.
We always book our appointment in the aftenoon (2pm batam time) for a 4 to 5 hours session of massage,foot reflex, facial ,ear candling,medi n pedi and hair spa for my wife (S$200 included 10% tax).If you want GOOD spa w/o any disappointment, try going there early during the weekend & holiday or anytime during weekdays. Remarks: If you want good foot reflexology look for Jelly or Afif. Sure Very Shiok man...........

We wanted to book a spa session @ the Spa Secret but was fully booked for the period. So we had decided to give ESKA a try since it's also recommended too.

We booked a couple spa at 3pm and arranged for the transport to fetch us at 10am from the hotel to Nagoya Hills. The driver is friendly and punctual. When we reached ESKA, we paid RP100,000 to get the service voucher, this is to safeguard that we don't go missing in Nagoya Hills. At 2:45pm, we arrived at the shop and proceeded to Level 2. A lady (which i assume is the lady boss or supervisor) led us to the 2-person room and took our service card. From 3pm, we waited till 3:30pm nobody came in. My partner get dressed and went out to look for any staff. The massager do not know how to speak English so she helped to find a chinese staff to talk to us. She requested for our service voucher but we can't produce since it has been taken away. It seems like nobody knows there is 2 person in that room waiting for their spa to get started. The staff went to check and at 3:45pm, we finally start our spa.

The massager I had is quite okay. The pressure is good but I didn't feel relaxed after the session. My partner said his massager's pressure is too light. Although he have requested to have the pressure more, it is still light. My partner is not overweight.

The body scrub and mask seems to be quite good. The skin felt smooth and fairer. Then we are told to have Jacuzzi for 25 minutes, then proceed to bath. When the massager left the room, the jacuzzi is not on, we find the switch and turned it on. The jacuzzi tub is not really spacious. Exactly at 25 minutes, the staff came in to serve us ginger tea but we have not bath. 10 minutes later, the staff came in again to ask whether we are ready. And then again 5-10 minutes later. I felt being "rushed". They have started the spa late and now this. The V Riatus is for ladies only. For other spa companies, this routine is about 15 minutes. I can't verify on this since it's our first time to have massage in Batam. For ours, it's about 5 minutes.

I don't know whether we will visit ESKA again but the price is slightly cheaper than other reputable spa companies in Batam. The price quoted is excluding taxes. When you pay, expect 10% more than the quoted price. Nevertheless, we still give the 2 massagers tips. As we only saw one of them, we gave it to her and told her to pass her partner's share to her.

“No use making appointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Book appointment before heading there. Arrange for a transport from our hotel to Eska, but it didnt turn up. Hence we need to walk over ourself. Maybe is due to miscommunication.

Upon reaching, shop is flooded with people, guess cos its sg public holiday. We thought we were lucky cos we make an appointment before hand. So we got our package card on hand and was instruct to go upstair to wait. So we did. But usually there will be a staff following u and guide u, but there isnt.

Upstair is flooded with people too. At least 10 people q-ing up before us. Super chaotic. End up we left cos no point waiting and they might rush their time out during e massage.

Went down and return e package card to e boss, they aint surprise and just keep quiet. Guess they dun need our business as well.

Well, i would say if u cant take in so many custoner then dun take in. Cos its useless to make appointment and end up waiting for v long.
