x Montigo Resorts x

October 2, 2017

So I took my first ever trip to Batam with the girls to experience Montigo Resorts ~

Here, you can experience what I feel is the the perfect weekend getaway - The best part is that it's only a 40 minute ferry ride away! I even have some inside infor that they'll be having their own ferry by the end of the year, so it'll be more comfortable and convenient as well.



Montigo Resorts has 98 villas and sizes to accommodate all kinds of travel : From a 5-bedroom villa for a big family (Kardashian style lol) to a 1-bedroom villa for a couple's retreat, there's something for everyone. 

This time, I went on a 'Hen's Trip' with a group of my girlfriends and we had a beautiful 2-bedroom villa with the sea view!


I recommend taking an early ferry to Nongsa so you have the time from then till check in to visit a shopping mall like Nagoya Hill to shop around a little bit and get groceries... Or get an insane 3 hour pampering package like we did at a salon. You probably won't want to leave the resort after you actually get to your room!


By the time we got back to our room, it was sunset and we literally just hung out by our pool to take it in for about an hour... Beautiful ~



This is the view you can expect from TIIGO Beach Club, located within the resort, and we enjoyed the rest of the sunset plus a couple of drinks before dinner....


.... That was a crazy BBQ buffet. 
I recommend the lamb and grilled prawns, they were my favourites...

... apart from the sambal chilli, of course, that was REALLY delicious and went with everything on my plate. 

I don't know about you guys but I kinda love corn that's 'chaotah' and it's so good with some butter and salt!




Also enjoy water sports like jet skiing, which we did, or you can also pick from the following :
 wake boarding, water skiing, knee boarding, kayaking, snorkelling or banana boat rides. Certified instructors are at hand, should you need them.

It's pretty much Insta haven here, with room views like this







No weekend getaway at a resort is complete without a spa experience so do make that call for a buggy here because all of us had a treatment done and agreed that it's one of the best ones we've tried so far ~


To be honest, the thing we wanted to do most was to just enjoy our private pool and have a couple of beers while playing daidee.. And I'm so glad we did. That's what a holiday's all about : R&R&r&R&R&R&R&R&R&R... you get the drift.



Dinner the next night was at Pantai that's also within the resort.
Here they serve the freshest seafood and this charming little place had one of the best black pepper crabs I've tried : If you follow me on Instagram and viewed my stories while I was there, you'd know I broke a nail eating most of the crab coz my girlfriends were full from the previous 2863284637 courses, and it was soooo worth it! 




A good night's sleep after that indulgent dinner wrapped up our trip and we were headed home the next day, happy ~

All the staff here were so friendly, helpful and attentive to every little need... I think I need more than one hand to count the number of times someone came over to give us insect repellent.
They even have people you can 'book' to play tennis with you so if you're on your own for a trip but suddenly want to play tennis, you can!

We really appreciated this level of attention to detail and it made the trip so much more memorable. 

Can't wait to be back, and experience it with both family and a lover :p
