“Good on vacation with children”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

My kids love the Montigo resort,
They like swimming pool, a spacious room with wii games facilities and sea views.

School holidays I use to take the kids for a vacation at a new resort in Nongsa batam,

I had to try in order to respond if there are I asked about Montigo resort.

Pretty good although the beach has not been finished,
Suggested vacation with kids, would love it.

We stayed here for 6nights, 2Adults& 2kids (11&7yrsold). The resort is on its soft opening but the pool, beach & kids club is not even halfway there, it's still a lot of works to be done! But the spa is open & nicely done with native huts around. The villa is huge, modern & bright. It has 3floors, the living room, kitchenette , plunge pool & dining patio on the 1st, Master bedroom that is massive with a big bath & the 2nd room with twin beds & a bathroom on the 2ndflr, the 3rdflr was the terrace, not furnished but with a nice view over Singapore. One clear night we were able to see the Marina Bay Sands hotel, so close it's only 30minutes by fast ferry to/from Batam. Staying at the villa was a holiday on its own, the kids can swim on the pool, play Wii (provided by the hotel), free wifi & lots of TV channels. Our villa was on the front row with a little hut to sit & relax overlooking the spa & mini pond. The wine list & beverages was reasonable for a resort, say a bottle of wine Sng50. Since there were not many guest yet they do not have the buffet breakfast.The breakfast was good & sufficient with a choice of continental, American or Nongsa. The dinner menu was also good & the food was great! The Chef always made an effort to talk to us, and ALL the STAFF WERE AMAZING!, they try to do their best for us! Batam's beach is not that good though but it's not crowded either! Anyway,if you want a 2 bedroom villa & pool,with the same price as a standard room in Singapore hotels, this is a bonus with a great view! Outstanding Value for money! If the resort is fully operational, I just hope the rate will be the same. Overall, we had a very relaxing holiday, we stayed mostly in the villa, with the adults relaxing with a book, wifi & with a glass of wine. The kids were entertained too! A truly relaxing week!

Room Tip: The villa with the pool is a holiday on its own, it's worth the extra!

Yes, yes, Montigo Resort(s) is the newest and only 5 star hotel on Batam island, and it is somehow award-winning, despite having only just opened! But...

THINK TWICE about why you want to go there. Especially during the soft launch period, when it does not have 5 star facilities. You will have to wait until next year before it has a proper pool, a beach club and even a beach itsefl!

I'm not sure what families could enjoy doing, as there is only one restaurant open, no reading room/games room/function room/ and nowhere really to walk except to the resort next door to use their beach facilities (although Montigo Resort does provide cycling trips, at a rental price, that might provide family fun).

Yes, the apartments are spacious, but most of the space is in the master bed-room and its indulgent en-suite (which makes it a GREAT GETAWAY for COUPLES and romance of any kind). The bed, its linen, and the floor-ceiling view (from the bed) are luxurious.
However, the second room has 2 nice looking beds but not much room for anything else.
The living area / kitchen downstairs is reasonable but would entertain children for as long as you were prepared to have the TV / DVD player on! Or simply let the kids sit on the sofa playing with their ipads. The free Wifi access in the resort is a big plus (or is it??)

The patio, off the living area, is a nice area to sit, read, have a meal and go for occassional dips in the plunge pool (again, great for couples to relax and unwind), it might be okay for children older than 7 or 8, but the depth of the pool is about 1m and it has got relatively unproteced edges, so would be unsafe for younger kids.

As a couple, its is superbe to laze about in the plunge pool, looking out at the views, while having some food and fluid "sustenance" at will. (See our photos.) Beware that people looking down from nearby rooftop terraces get a good view of the plunge pools below, so decide how much you want to entertain them (and charge them) before putting on a show!

There's not much else to do on the rooftop terrace except admire the view, as the rooftops are very barren at the moment. Some weather-proof furniture and some potplants would make them more liveable areas. I fear that, at busy times, the resort could be quite noisy as people might gather on the rooftops to do stand-up activities involving only glasses and bottles of alcohol... (or, in our case - somebody shot firecrackers from their rooftop - for an hour one night at 9pm and then at midnight on the second night for 10 minutes before we complained!)

Speaking of parties... if you have "a quiet one" in the luxury of your bedroom, be careful when you are in the ensuite bathroom: There is a very inconvenient "lip" of about 3cm height where the floor beneath the vanity units is raised above the floor where the big bath tub is located. It's a poor design feature and I predict it will lead to a broken toe or two... but don't let them be yours!

THINK TWICE about your booking arrangements. Based on our experience, we would suggest that you "double confirm" everything that is seemingly arranged through the website or the Singapore office and bring print-outs of all communications (inc. reservation confirmations) to the reception at Montigo Resort. Beware that whatever you were quoted in SGD will be less than you actually get charged in the conversion to Rupiah on your final invoice. Ideally, you would use an Amex credit card to pay your invoice (as it has the best conversion rates of all credit cards). But, despite the website accepting Amex, and the reservation being made using our Amex card, on arrival we were told that Amex could not be used!

SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT: warm greetings, guests being addressed by their names, complimentary cake and wine for a special occasion, and great service recovery for the numerous "glitches". In our case, Duty Manager Ali Usman went out of his way to find me, apologise and make things right, after I'd fired off an angry e-mail over one of those reservation communication mix-ups.

We would STRONGLY RECOMMEND the free day trip to NAGOYA HILL MALL. It's a great place to shop, to eat, and to people-watch. And the friendly staff at Montigo will drive you there and back in a comfortable mini-bus, leaving at 10 am and returning at 4pm. (If you like strong massages, try out "Eska" on level 1. The gents there managed to release aching muscles that we've had for months, despite getting regular massages and spas in Singapore and elswhere on holidays.)

But DO THINK TWICE about going until Montigo have sorted out their various glitches...
Other reviews have pointed out some, but let me list some more "little things" that do add up when you're supposed to be at Batam's newest and only 5 star resort:

1. There's no icemaker in the small bar fridge. Sure, the "free minibar" (soft drinks and confectionaries) are nice, but a real fridge, with a decent ice-maker would be better! You have to call reception and wait for someone to bring a bucket of ice to your apratment if you want to chill a bottle of wine, or just put ice in your coke.

2. There was no bottle opener in our apartment...! In fact, there was a real lack of cooking, carving, and creating utensils.

3. The numerous doors and the skylight in the en-suite have 'gaps" everywhere, so that all manner of insects can come crawling in; mosquitoes being the most notorious. We did find a small collection of insect repellents in a bottom drawer in our bedroom as we were packing up to leave!

OVERALL, this is a unique resort in its concept. Some will delight in what it has to offer, others will not. So, continue to read all reviews until you get a balanced idea of whose compliments and whose criticisms would be likely to affect your stay (especially given that there are hundreds of reviews from a large sample of guests at the other top-ranking hotels in Batam (Which Montigo Resort does not want to compete with, at the moment hence they list themselves as a hotel in Nongsa!). Then think twice...!

Room Tip: Ask to be furthest away from the construction (which is near the restaurant) Check everything in th...

We were lucky to stay here during the soft launching of the hotel. Overall, I would said that it is definitely worth it! The children love the pool in the villa. Everything was well equipped except that we had a few problems with the Aircondition in our room. If the price remind the same or only slightly higher with full facilities equipped, we might want to come back. Of course if you were to compare to BanYan Tree in Bali, it is not comparable at all.

We spent our National Day at Montigo Resort Nongsa. From our beautiful villa, we could see the landscape of MBS. An added bonus was that we could see some of the beautiful fireworks at the NDP from our villa.
Back to the villa, we stayed at the Hilltop Villa with the South China Sea view. As this is a relatively new resort (2 months old), the interiors and furniture were new and clean.
The master bedroom comes with an open air bathroom, with an over-sized bathtub and a separate shower area with rain shower. I loved their toiletries.
Besides the super comfy king-sized bed in the master bedroom, there is a nice sofa where one can just relax and daze.
The highlight of the villa will be the infinity plunge pool. This is a private plunge pool for each villa and so, this means you can jump into the pool at anytime you wish and without sharing the pool with others. My 8 year old boy loved the plunge pool.
As this is their soft launch, only 1 restaurant is opened. However, the food is not expensive and they tasted good, especially the Indonesian style food.
As for the check-in, we have arrived pretty early in the morning as the ferry services for the afternoon was full (probably due to National Day holiday). Although the villa was not ready for check-in, the receptionist was very kind to proceed with the "check-in" procedures while we wait for our complimentary shuttle service to Nagoya Hill, so that when we return from Nagoya Hill in the afternoon, we can check into our villa immediately. We were so glad that the receptionist (Ms Yeyen) was all ready waiting for us with our room key when we returned from Nagoya Hill. During our 3D2N stay at the Resort, Ms Yeyen remembered our name and addressed us by our name. Besides Ms Yeyen, we found all other staff very friendly and helpful (it is a pity we could not get all their names). For some, while fetching us from our villa, offered information on the activities going around the resort (e.g. cake decoration class, tennis class) and invited us to join in these activities.
If there is something negative about this resort, I guess it would be the construction work at the Resort. The dining table by the plunge pool is covered with a layer of dust which stops us from having our meal there.
