Location: Turi Beach Resort, Batam
Got the Groupon deal at $99 per person and omg we are so in love with this place (minus the part where we woke up with mosquito bites all over). The infinity pool and the bottom pool are absolutely to die for. The water's super clean and the beach is just next to the pool area! We spent a lazy afternoon soaking in the pool and sleeping on the hammock. My first time sleeping on one and I almost fall over since I didn't know that I was not supposed to be sitting at the edge of the hammock. Don't laugh, I bet you didn't know too lor. The indonesian food there was pretty decent and decently priced too. Gado-gado was $6 and mains were an average of $10! I love gado-gado and was surprised to that the Indonesian style comes cold! COLD GADO-GADO! And we loved it!!!! Had it two days in a row. So after dinner it was back to the big and spacious (love the high-ceiling!) room to just 'nua' the whole day away. The breakfast spread was amazing too! Of course not as large a spread as a 4-star hotel but I think good enough to compete with 3-star ones! The spread's international buffet! Oh and it comes free with the Groupon too. Overall, Turi Beach is a great place to just relax the weekends away if you are looking for a short getaway from the hectic pace of life in Singapore!
