Batam is a hop skip and jump from Singapore and most people take the ferry for a day out to play golf or enjoy hours of spa treatment, but this article dives deep into Batam. From Accomodation recommendations to the must do things while you are spending an entire weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Singapore.

Things you Should Know about staying a Weekend in Batam 

Tempat Senang Spa is located on the other side of the island, so you will need to hire a taxi to get you downtown (on the other side of the island). You can hire a cab by the hour, which is affordable and makes the trip/s more convenient.

Things To Do For a Weekend in Batam

3-hour Spa Treatment at Tempat Senang Spa

Let’s face it; most people come to Batam for its inexpensive, relaxing and (a little) indulgent spa treatments. You can choose from many therapies, such as massages, pedicures, facials and other body and hair treatments.

You can choose from 3 treatments and mix them up a little every time you visit. Whether you want to experience three different massages during this time or three different beauty treatments, the choice is all yours.

6-hour spa treatment at Tempat Senang Spa

Yes, it is truly an entire day dedicated to you! Pure heaven, where you can choose from 6 different treatments of your choice! You can incorporate breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner if you like.

There is no luxury spared from the time you are picked up from the ferry with the resort’s complimentary transport service to the time you leave the premises. The staff are friendly and are willing to cater to your needs.

Indulge in a six-course meal 

Although the price of the food at this restaurant is more Singapore prices than Indonesian prices, it is worth every cent. We decided on the six-course meal for dinner! Each course came from a different country, and each course just improved.

Hire a Taxi For a Few Hour’s Tours.

Instead of booking a pre-paid tour, I highly recommend hiring a taxi for a few hours. You can then tailor your tour to your liking, and along with it comes a knowledgeable driver who is an expert in the area of Batam. Just ask the hotel staff, and they will arrange this for you; it is that easy.

    So 17 years ago, my husband and I set off with our little family in tow, embarking on a short-term assignment in Taiwan. Although without any knowledge of expat life or the Taiwanese culture, we took the chance and decided this would be an exciting little adventure; little did we know it changed the direction of our lives forever.
