Short Batam Trip Part 1

During the Christmas period, I went to Batam for a short getaway. Many of us probably have visited Batam and stayed at Harris, Holiday Inn or Novotel. Not many may have heard of Tempat Senang. It is a boutique Balinese resort that only has 7 suites with its own spa and restaurant. Each individual suite is decorated with a different theme (Bali, Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, Thai, Tree and Sultan). Recently they have also added 2 more apartments, Ocean Spray and Sea Breeze to cater for larger group. Do note, no children is allowed at the resort.

The other attraction is their mix and match 3hr spa packages that caters to your liking. For example they offered different massage types such as Aromatherapy, Tibetian Hot Stone, Chinese Bamboo Stick, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Tradition Indonesian, Thai, Balinese, Swedish, Shiatsu and Water Shiatsu. In additional the resort also has day trip spa package.

I was the peak period over Christmas and the resort was fully booked. I was quite lucky to make reservation as someone cancelled his booking. I was given the Thai room which actually came with two bedrooms.

After my 3 hr spa which I chose the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Coconut scrub and Foot Reflexology, lunch was served at the restaurant on the 2nd floor overlooking the golf course.
