Montigo Resorts Nongsa Batam December 2012
This is a super belated post. Last Christmas, a group of us went to Batam for our annual Christmas gathering. My friend suggested Montigo Resorts Nongsa in Batam which I have not heard of. I only know of Harris and Holiday Inn Hotel. Apparently it is quite a new property about a year old labeling itself as 5 stars luxury resort in Batam.
This is the check in lobby of Montigo Resorts Nongsa Batam. The place is really beautiful. In fact, I can see Singapore across the sea and even spotted Marina Bay Sands.
A map of the resort. The villas are all built along the 1 kilometer stretch of private beach facing the South China Sea. Unfortunately the private beach is still not fully completed when we were there. The beach and water was muddy.
Upon checking in, we are transported to our 3 storey villa by buddy. The first floor considers of the living hall, a toilet, a kitchen bar, balcony and pool.
Balcony area with an infinity pool facing the sea.
There are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. This is the master bedroom which is really spacious.
This is the view from the master bedroom. The left side is the spa villa. As you can see from the photography, the private beach is still under construction and muddy.
The toilet is very spacious too. It is like half the size of the bedroom. Unfortunately the bath tub was quite dirty so I never used it.
The other bedroom is smaller and comes with twin beds. There is also an in room toilet and tv.
On the top floor is the sky terrace. In front is the view of the sea while the back are the hillside villas.
The design of Montigo Resorts Nongsa is really nice and the place is beautiful. It doesn't feel like I am in Batam at all, I felt like I am somewhere in Phuket or Bali. There is basically nothing at Nongsa area and its about an hour drive to Batam City. It is suitable for a nice romantic weekend or getaway from the hustle life in Singapore. There are also a lot to be desired on their housekeeping and maintenance.
For a year old property, the place is considered quite dirty and worn. The private beach was also not ready yet.
