Southlinks Golf course in the best place to stay and visit in Batam. This place is very clean, very safe and full of sports facilities, ranging from golf course, swimming pool, fitness center, kids playground and jogging tracks.
Southlinks provide free rides from the apartment or challet to the city of Batam at no additional charge. I can play golf at day time, the car will take me to see the activities in the city, buy groceries and have dinner.
The frontliner staff are very friendly and helpful. They used the buggy to drive me to my accommodation. The apartment was very good and roomy.
The food at the restaurant were very good. I love the grilled chicken, ask for sweet soy sauce to eat with the chicken. Great stuff. The sandwiches were quite OK too.
P.S. Keep small change for tips for frontliners staff, if you are happy. I did this.
