Past Sunday, hubby brought me to Tempat Senang Spa Resort in Batam for a full day spa retreat. I've never heard about this spa resort before and in fact was a little sceptical about the quality of treatment and service there. Hubby assured me that he heard good reviews about the spa from the internet, and after seeing their website I was more or less convinced. Anyway, it seems like a good deal, 6hr of spa treatments including lunch and land transfer (excluding ferry) at S$195+ per person during weekend (a 1hr spa treatment at full-fledge spa in SG could easily cost more than $80).
We took the 8am ferry from Harbourfront and reached Sekupang Ferry Terminal in less than an hour. A staff from the spa was already awaiting for us at the entrance.
While the spa therapists prepared the room, we roamed around the resort.
We could choose our lunch from a few selection like sandwiches, fried rice, pineapple rice and etc. We chose Nasi Campur which turned out to be an excellent choice! Very sumptuous indeed, there's beef rendang, curry chicken, vegetable popiah, grilled prawn and gado gado. The popiah and curry chicken were nicely cooked, gado gado with the peanut sauce refreshing, only the beef redang was a little tough.
After the sumptuous lunch, we strolled around before proceeding back to continue the rest of the treatments. In the afternoon (1pm to 4pm), I did a wrap, massage and lastly, herbal compress. After end of the treatments, took transport back to ferry terminal and caught the 5pm ferry back to SG.
Overall, the spa treatments were quite good and the therapists relatively skillful. My favourites were the massage, ear candling and herbal compress. But 6hr could be a little overdose. Both of us felt like a marinated piece of meat at the end of the 6 treatments! I think if we were to return, half-day package should suffice. Anyways, we were glad to discover this hidden gem in Batam, and would recommend friends to give it a try.
