Batam Green :: Paperbag Pants and Circle Straw Bag

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 Simone - Your Style Architect 5 Comments

A quick weekend getaway to celebrate my husband's birthday, our upcoming 18th Wedding Anniversary and to celebrate our Easter holidays. Being only a 45 mins ferry ride away from Singapore, and seeing that the last I had ventured to this little Indonesian island of Batam was at least almost 20 yrs ago, we decided on this destination for our quick trip.

So bags packed, and doggies off to boarding, we arranged for a quick getaway not sure what to expect from this little quaint island.

Of course, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort Batam as it had so much to offer within it's hotel premises from food, beautiful spa treatments operated by Tea Tree Spa and of course, the beautiful and expansive hotel grounds with landscaped gardens and a large swimming pool. There was an in-house sports bar, teppanyaki restaurant, games room filled with foosball, pool, billiard, chess ( you name it they got it) and of course a very large Gym and outdoor trampoline, table tennis and tennis court for the active ones. There was also an in-house kids club which was manned by the staff so mom and dad could sneak away for a quick massage or spa treatment not having to worry about finding someone to babysit.

Lazing by the pool hut after swimming a couple of laps, I enjoyed my pina colada and snuggled amongst the cushion for a nice read of the magazines and books I brought along with me. Funny enough the weather was nice and breezy and certainly not as humid as in Singapore at this time of the year.

And so a couple of outfit shots later, we dashed for a quick massage to unwind and relax.

Let me know if you wish to find out more about the facilities at the Holiday Inn Resort Batam - we definitely will be back again for more!
