A quick weekend getaway from Singapore

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 1, 2009

16 years in between visits but thought I'll go back and check out how the place of my first ever overseas visit had changed. Between 45-60 minutes away from Singapore by ferries from Harbourfront, the resorts in Pulau Batam are decidingly more economical than those in neighbouring Pulau Bintan.

Rewarded myself with a seaside villa stay via an Indofalcon F&E package which includes 1N stay, breakfast, ferry tickets and hotel transfers (S$140 per pax circa Apr 09). The villas are located slightly way off the main facilities but was rewarded with serenity. The villas were built right at the edge of the shores and so the villas were serenaded by the sounds of wave breaking.

The 1-Bedroom Villa came equipped with a DVD player, TV with satelite channels, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a bath tub with a window that faced the open seas. Very comfortable, very resort. Couldn't complain.

Service of the staff was excellent and the in-house spa had excellent facilities. There was an intriguing little herb and spice garden next to the rather rundown basketball and tennis courts. The main pool was a little small and had a strange steep gradient which descended into 3m deep at the other end. (There was a shallow baby pool)

My only major complaint was the food quality. Did not try the in-house seafood restaurant but settled for 2 meals at the cafe, along with the breakfast. The local fare was cooked alright but the western choices were sub-parred....with my lamb shank overly cooked till tough. The breakfast selection was sub-par too....with limpy waffles and cold fried eggs.

Unique Quality: The Villas exclusive location and serenity is a great plus point for folks wanting to have a short R&R getaway with massages and scrubs thrown in.

Directions: On the top east far end of Pulau Batam.

Private Beach

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2008

My experience is very pleasant and fulfiling (ie. because i didn't have any prior expectations). Every single process from the time i arrive at the ferry terminal and the point of departure has been excellent. Service is wonderful by all the staff.

The resort though is not 5-star is relatively new. It has an exclusive feel for all visitors. Steping into the entrance, you suddenly feel safe, calm and relaxed, and pampered. The main lobby is open, spacious, bright with high ceilings, and perfect furnishings. The area is huge because it combines the lobby, lounge and bar, and an entertaining area.

BVBR was recommended by my friend and i'm definitely recommending it to everyone. The resort has several choices of accomodation from both its hotel and villa. The villa is an excellent choice if you want to be laterally close to the sea.

Unique Quality: Upgraded to the Deluxe Room and it is located on the highest floor. Partnered with a clear landscape view of the beach and sea, who can complain. The room was spacious, clean, and so was the fresh air. The bathroom has a tub and is definitely clean.

The food at the Melati Coffee House is definitely delicious and cheap too. Though the resort also have a Kelong Seafood Restaurant, the coffee house which is right to the pool is my favorite. Lounging at the newly built patio with coffee and cool, fresh air is my definite resort escape.

Dinner at the Kelong Seafood Restaurant deserves my commendation too. Why walk when you can hop on a buggy (FOC) from the front desk which escorts you to dinner in style. Well, that's what we did since there was a Birthday Gal! And the views to the restaurant will be fantastic during sunset. Haiz, how i wish i was there again...

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 17, 2007

Stayed in this resort twice and the newly renovated rooms are slightly better than before. Clean, decent, quiet rooms and close to nature. A good option if you are looking for cheap and relaxing short getaway.

Unique Quality: The 5th Dimension Spa is also good and value for money. I spend SGD 92 for a 3hr spa package which consists of full body scrub, steam bath, full body massage, facial, herbal bath and after spa drink.

Directions: Take ferry from Tanah Merah Ferry terminal from Singapore to Nongsa ferry terminal in Batam.

Batam View Beach Resort

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 20, 2007

We booked this hotel on a Last Minute Website and only paid 130 per pax for a night including Ferry Tickets from/to Singapore. As we arrived at Batam we enjoyed an express immigration where they take away your passport and collect 10 USD for the visa on arrival. If you don't have USD, you are supposed to pay 20 SGD! What a nice exchange rate. The best thing about this Express Immigration Service? You don't see your passport again until you board the ferry back to Singapore. Kinda scary.

Batam View Beach Resort is a dissapointment from the beginning to the end. The pool is very small, there are just a few seats and tables, no pool bar, no towels (in laundry...), beach bar was closed, no towel service at the beach, bad food, breakfast buffet was small and mainly empty and the staff was not really helpful. The official rates are (Weekday/Weekend): Superior Room 130/170, Deluxe Room 150/180, Suite Room 190/230, Executive Room 250/290, Villa with 1 Bedroom 290/320, Villa with 2 Bedrooms 380/420. I haven't seen the villas from inside, but they look quite lovely.

Unique Quality: Qualities? Batam View Beach Resort is below average in every sense.

Directions: You will be picked up or you have to take a taxi

Simple and Nice Place..

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 3, 2005

The hotel is quite old but it's clean and neat. All the rooms have sea views ans they also on the beach villas which are pricier.

The room rates are affordable and there are often specials and packages on their website which you have to check out every now and then for great deals.

The resort has a private beach which offers boat and jetski rentals. There is also a swimming pool, spa, tennis court, basketball court, video games, nightclub, and ping pong table. So there is always something to do.

Throughout the grounds of the resort there are bird cages with parrots. There are also turkeys roaming the grounds. The resort grounds are under tight security and all vehicles in and out are checked for bombs.

Unique Quality: There are sea view for all rooms ans the hotel has a private beach.

They also have a kelong restaurant which means that the restaurant is at the sea.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 12, 2003

Batam View has a personal touch in everything. The staff are friendly and talented in many things, the hotel is beautifully maintained for your comfort and the beach has glorious white sand!

Unique Quality: I loved the Kelong Restaurant best of all for it's beautiful architecture. Though simple, I found it a dining pleasure to be among the waves and yet safe from it.

Directions: Just ask the taxi driver!
