Have you ever dreamt of staying in a beautiful three storey villa with a private pool, enjoying a full day of quality time with your loved ones or friends? To most of us, this may be a dream life that we are all working hard for. Okay, the good news is that you don’t need to travel all the way to places like Bali, Phuket or Maldives for a holiday like that. Montigo Resorts, which is just a 45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore, offers a such a luxurious and unforgettable getaway.
Looking to take a break from the stressful and fast-paced working society in Singapore, we planned a 3 days 2 nights getaway in Montigo Resort. This marks my first passport chop in Batam! We purchased our ferry tickets from BatamFast website and departed from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in the early morning. When we reached Nongsa Pura Ferry Terminal Batam, there is a complimentary resort/hotel transfer. The journey to the Montigo Resort took just 15 minutes or less.
Like any other resorts, we were served with welcome drinks and the staff helped us with our check-in. Note that check-in time is at 3 pm and check-out time is at 12 pm. Also, early check-in and late check-out will be subject to availability on arrival date. The staff is very friendly! When everything is done, we got in a buggy and off we go to our villa. #excited
Just in case you are wondering the difference between Hill Side Villa and Hill Top Villa.
Hilltop Villas is of higher ground, back top row. (Sea Facing, can see partial of hillside villa)
Hillside Villas is in the middle row. (Sea Facing, can see partial of Sea Front Villa)
We booked a Hill Side Villa with 2 Bedrooms and Pool. The recommended maximum guests in a villa is 4 for the best experience.

The balcony with the private pool beside.
Here is a complete view of the balcony and the infinity pool. You can see the sea and blue sky from here. Pretty nice right?
To me, the best thing about Montigo Resorts villa is definitely the private infinity pool! Can’t wait to get into the pool while enjoying the scenery.
This is how the master bedroom looks like.
A super big washroom
This is the room beside the master bedroom.
Just above the bedrooms are the rooftop level. The view from the rooftop is amazing. With the sea breeze, you feel super relaxing. What makes it better is that there are some mattress and pillows at the side where you can lie/sit down and enjoy. This is also the place where you can have your in-villa bbq. We didn’t try it this time round. Maybe next time!

Apart from just staying in the villa, we also explored around the island to take some photos. Nicole went to do spa at the Montigo Spa during the evening time.
Tips & Hacks in Montigo Resorts
- You can always call the buggy to get from one place to another in Montigo Resorts. It’s free if you are wondering.
- Try Pantai Restaurant. The price is cheap and the quality is good.
- All the rates are in IDR. You can pay using SGD and it will be based on the exchange rate on that day. I do recommend using IDR for a better exchange rate.
- There are shuttle bus to Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall from resort and pick up time at 10.00AM from lobby and drop off back to resort at 4 PM with charge IDR 60.000 nett/person for two ways
Overall, we enjoyed our time at Montigo Resorts and we will definitely make a return visit sometime later.
