Ok, I’ve waited long enough to announce this: I’m going to a weekend spa retreat at neighbouring island, Batam! YAY! This is what the place looks like, at least, in photos:
This will be where we’re staying, the KTM Resort. There will be 9 of us, 8 couples (me, my sisters and hubbies) and a friend. We will stay in 2 family cottages. Though I’ve read reviews that the place is quite run-down, I’m thinking if it’s clean it shouldn’t be a problem. Anyway, I like the rustic setting which is very much like the kampong (or village) lifestyle that I never grew up in but had experienced a few times when I was still a kid.
This is the reason we’re heading there:
– Spa Villa
The idea of having spa and massage done while facing the sea is so exciting! The women, that’s us the sisters, will be doing a 180 mins Romantic Spa Package (foot bath, body scrub, body mask, hydro bath & full body massage) . The men, that’s the hubbies and a friend, will do 30 mins foot reflexology OR head/neck/shoulder massage.
Day 2 will be a day of city tour and shopping. We will set off early Saturday morning and come back in the evening on Sunday. Hopefully the weather co-operates even though it’s been a little too crazy lately. I might get a little dizzy while having a massage facing a turbulent sea 😛
