Following our ferry ride from Singapore HarbourFront to Batam via Batam Fast , we checked into a truely 4 star hotel located a little far away from the central nagoya but close to those andrealine rush activities like Flying Fox and PaintBall Challenge at Golden View Hotel Batam .
The authentic car that parks right in front of the lobby , for exhibits and photography – a landmark for the hotel but sometimes , you can spot security personnel resting inside the car and it’s quite cramp and stuffy inside though 😛
Golden View Batam is built in an inviting structure that it convexs outwards and it does have a really magnificent sunrise view from our upgraded room facing towards the sea !
Feeling exhausted after a ferry ride and how tired you will feel after cramping in the taxi will be away with an inviting welcome drink ( Lychee / Orange Juice ) served by the staff of Golden View Hotel .
Be mesmerized with how SPACIOUS the rooms are – we are upgraded for free to Deluxe Room from our original Standard room that should be pretty small and not too luxurious as this for a
SGD $108 / night inclusive for breakfast for 2 . Look at how you can have a mini gathering here – awesome isn’t it !
A closer look at how big is the space between the bed and the table !!!!! You could have another bed or two within it and a mini bbq here ( of course you can’t else your room will be wet 😛 ) !
How inviting and springy the single bed looks and sleeps on for a night tucking below the blankets ! You could request for a king size bed where you squeeze with your travel buddy or twin beds which i usually preferred to have the whole bed to myself for the same price !
Furnitures that are much better and newer than our previous stay at THE MERCURE which is a little dirty with the plugs and drawers – much more comfortable chairs that i sat for almost 4 hours and more to get my posts completed ( i live blogged , remember ? 😛 ) .
Golden View Hotel does have basic amenities as well as kettle to boil hot water , tea and coffee bags with 2 daily free bottles of mineral water to quench your thirst .
Golden View Hotel Batam does have a bathtub and a standing shower within the bathroom , that isn’t quite common in other hotels , resulting it to be quite cramped to move around the bathroom .
Facing right towards the sea , this is one of the best resort view to be awaken with the sunrise to greet you for a holiday like no other !!!!!! Magnificent sunrise overlooking the sea !
Buffet Breakfast at Golden View Hotel is pretty basic and nothing much to expect for except the normal hashbrowns , vegetables and some chunks of chicken with fried egg on the spot with freshly baked pastries .
Help yourself as much as you love for its buffet breakfast – the omelette is not too bad with onions , chilli , ham , cheese and chunks of chicken all tossed together !
Feeling bored at Golden View Hotel ? Not anymore for a dip into the waters at the swimming pool located within the premises behind the lobby – quite big to swim around with your laps !
Pump those muscles and get fitter after chomping those good food at Golden View Hotel GYM , just in front of the swimming pool – opens from 12 noon !
Be entertained with some drinks and live music at night for its little bar located just in front of the lobby – now your night won’t feel bored anymore .
