Just returned from a short weekend getaway at Tempat Senang, Batam. It has been close to a year since we visited this hidden oasis ( refer to the detailed post on our first visit here ) and true indeed, it still lives up to its reputation of being a great haven for absolute bliss and relaxation. The ideal retreat for couples seeking for love and romance, there’s simply nowhere else in Batam that could match up to the rustic yet intimate ambiance at Tempat Senang. Get ready to wash all your troubles away as you get fully pampered by the 3 hrs long SPA treatments, partially al-fresco style – Scrub, Facial, Massage. Here are some of our recommendations: 1) Facial – Try the delicious Honey Oatmeal Yogurt Mask, 2) Massage – soothing Balinese & Chinese Bamboo massages.
Unfortunately, there was a mis-communication and in the end, we didn’t get to stay in the much acclaimed Tree House room that we have been anticipating since the start. I would certainly be lying if I say that our experience wasn’t dampen by this hiccup. Nevertheless, Jasmine performed an excellent service recovery and we ended up not only checking out late but also received discounts & an extra hour of massage on the house! Is this what we call “a blessing in disguise” ? 🙂
Till our next return trip, a year from now.
Here are some of my favourite “flying” poses, after many jumping attempts.
