5th Wedding Anniversary


Montigo Resorts, Nongsa Batam

Last December we decided to book a chillax trip to Montigo Resorts, Nongsa via Agoda which is located at Batam. They’ve another resort located at Bali. Was very excited about it since the day an agent shared with me about this resort. Thumbs-up for my talking skills that i managed to convince the husband to bring me go ^^
If you want honeymoon, for the price of 2, considered expensive. If you’re looking to go as a family trip or with friends, more worthy. As in each villa, there are 2 rooms. 1 master bedroom and another common room. There were only both of us so we didnt use the common room.
Booked our ferry tickets via Batam Fast. Off to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal on the 10 March 2017. It was my first time to the ferry terminal. Nothing much. Food selling there are pricey and tasted horrible.
It took about 40 minutes from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Nongsapura Ferry Terminal. One of the bonus services from Montigo Resorts was that they’ve a concierge set up at the Nongsapura Ferry Terminal.
Note: Do email Montigo Resorts to update them your ferry departure date, time and arrival timing so they can pick you up and drive you to the resort.
From the Nongsapura Ferry Terminal to the Montigo Resorts was only a 5 minute drive!
Check-in timing was 3pm. As it was a Friday (which is a weekend), early check-in was impossible. We went downstairs for our lunch. The weather was incredibly hot! It was way hotter than Singapore T.T
The prices there are cheaper than Singapore but if compare to anywhere else in Batam, considered expensive. The food tasted only average.
One awesome thing about Montigo Resorts was their wi-fi! Wi-fi EVERYWHERE except washrooms. Haha!

Finally, it was our turn! Hopped on to the buggy and off we go! Depends which villa you’re staying. If you’re staying far away from the restaurants, you have to contact the reception for buggy service to pick you up to your destination. If you’re staying pretty near to the spa or restaurants, i would advise you to burn some calories by walking to your destination as the buggy service can takes pretty long to come especially meals time. Waiting time can go up to at least 45 minutes. Why waste close to an hour of waiting yea?

We stayed at Villa 10. Upon arriving, received a basket of fresh fruits and a handwritten welcome card 🙂

My horrible panda eyes are shown! Didnt put any make-up but only eyelash extensions.
Was having insomnia for the past few days already!

Their sunset timing is from 6pm to 6.15pm so dont miss it!
Gorgeous bright Mr. Sun!

How often do we get the chance to admire such beautiful sunset in Singapore?

At night, we had dinner buffet at Tad’s Restaurant. Food spread on the average side. We enjoyed the live Indo traditional live band 🙂 Remember to order beer! Cheap!

I didn’t take many pictures. Hence watch the video below for more.
