Went to Batam, Holiday Inn with husband on 12 Dec 08

Today my husband and I just got home from Batam 2D1N trip. The hotel we stayed in was Holiday Inn resort, the service was not as good as with Harris Resort although the facility in Holiday Inn is much more nicer and better.
If you're a service oriented person, do go to Harris for their prompt and friendly services. As for Holiday Inn, the service is not up to my expectation but the facility and scenery are nice which in turn gives a balance in between service and comfortable stay.
Here are some photos taken during our stay...

On our way to Nagoya Hill.

Shopping time!! After shopping, we went for 2 hours massage each. My husband went for aromatherapy massage while I asked for Thai massage at Isabella Massage House, opposite Nagoya shopping mall. The prices were reasonable compare to hotel's. They are Rp150,00 (S$21) and Rp 130,000 (S$18) respectively.
They also provide round trip service like to & from hotel or shopping mall or ferry terminal or airport.

Dinner at Golden Prawn, a wooden house floating on a lake. There, we ordered chili crab, locust prawn, butter prawn, bean sprout, hotplate tofu, lemon chicken and rice. Oooh....so full! The dinner cost us about Rp400,00 or S$58. (A little expensive I think).
(Didn't take pictures of the food, was too engross to the food, ha!)

Back to hotel after a day of shopping, massage and dinner.

Breakfast time! International buffet, as usual.

Taking photos around the hotel after breakfast.

Hours before check out, went back room and rest.

Thai food for lunch at hotel's restaurant. S$15.80nett for a set lunch which consist of main meal, soup and dessert of the day.

  2. Maybe my expectation is high on service. I prefer the previous hotel, Harris' service although this Holiday Inn facility is much better.
