Malay Beach, Batam

What : A beach with calm ocean waves and nice breeze in the morning or afternoon. Very local place with minimum infrastructure / facilities, be prepared to bring your own necessities. Entrance fee is Rp.10,000 (about SGD$1) Activity available seems like only Banana Boat for Rp.20,000 per person (about SGD$2). You can swim too, but the changing room/toilet can be challenging for some people.
Opening hours :  Okay, please just come in the  morning or daytime.
How to go there : chartered Silver Cab in Batam (phone no: 0778461000) or Blue Bird taxi (phone no: 0778421234 ). You can rent a car in Batam too, but i have not experienced it so i don’t recommend anyone about it yet. Journey will take about 45 mins drive.
Location : Jalan Hang Kesturi, Batu Besar. Malay Village after passing the 4th Barelang bridge there is another road with signage on the right side.

Pantai Melayu, Batam

Adalah : Pantai dengan ombak laut yang tenang dan angin sepoi-sepoi di pagi atau sore hari. Pantai yang jauh dari keramaian namun fasilitasnya masih minim, jadi persiapan harus matang kalau mau kesini. Harga masuk sebesar Rp.10,000. Aktivitas di pantai cuma ada Banana Boat dengan harga Rp.20,000 per orang. Kamu bisa berenang juga tapi toilet dan tempat ganti bajunya agak “menantang” untuk beberapa orang.
Jam Buka : Oke, untuk keamanan silahkan datang di pagi, siang atau sore hari.
Cara pergi : Charter Silver Cab di Batam (telephone: 0778461000) atau taksi Blue Bird (telephone: 0778421234). Kamu juga bisa menyewa mobil di Batam, tapi saya belum pernah coba, jadi belum bisa merekomendasikan disini. Perjalanan ke Pantai Melayu memakan waktu selama 45 menit dengan mobil.
Lokasi : Jalan Hang Kesturi, Batu Besar. Kampung Melayu terletak di daerah setelah melewati jembatan Barelang yang ke 4, di sebelah kanan jalan ada papan petunjuk untuk menuju ke Kampung Melayu.

Turi Beach Resort

Location: Jalan Hang Lekiu, Nongsa, Batam island, Indonesia 29465

My review about this hotel:

  • There are two types of the room location, (right and left sides from the lobby) however i have visited both, and they are spacious. The right ones from the lobby entrance seems a bit farther from the main beach (for water activities) but gives you lots of privacy.  The left ones, older than the right ones yet still nice, more expensive, but closer to the main beach and less mosquitos.

  • Facilities given in the room are standard, so its okay. But the bed is kinda comfortable.

  • There are fun activities at the beach provided with extra charged, such as banana boat, parasailing, motorboat,  etc. The others are like trekking, wall climbing also available.  Do not expect the beach water is crystal clear and super clean, no. But its not that bad. I had fun doing the parasailing though (it was bit scary at first haha)
  • There are two nice deep swimming pools, of course for kids are available too.
  • Just to be sure that this place is kinda isolated from city area. Still lots of nature around, prepared with mosquitos repellant. At night time there are just soldiers of them gonna bite your face when you are sleeping.

Pendapat saya tentang hotel ini:

  • Ada dua jenis kamar tergantung lokasinya, (bagian disebelah kanan dan kiri dari pintu masuk lobby) . Dua-duanya lumayan luas karena saya sudah dua kali mengunjungi resort ini. Kamar yang di bagian sebelah kanan agak jauh  dari pantai utama (untuk tempat bermain dan beraktivitas) tapi memberi kamu tempat yang lebih sepi untuk beristirahat dari keramaian.  Kamar yang di sebelah kiri dari lobby, kondisi kamar lebih tua tapi masih bersih dan bagus. Harganya lebih mahal, lebih dekat dengan pantai utama dan tidak terlalu banyak nyamuk.
  • Fasilitas kamar yang tersedia seperti biasa seperti sabun mandi, autan lotion untuk nyamuk, hair dryer dan lain lain. Tempat tidurnya lumayan nyaman.
  • Untuk meyakinkan, tempat ini agak jauh dari kota, masih dikelilingi hutan. Karna itu persiapkan obat anti nyamuk. Kalau malam banyak sekali nyamuk di restoran atau di kamar tidur.
  • Di resort ini ada dua kolam renang. Dua-duanya berkedalaman 2 meter-an. Tentunya untuk anak-anak juga ada.
  • Ada banyak aktivitas yang bisa kamu lakukan di pantai seperti banana boat, parasailing, motorboat, dan sebagainya. Aktivitas diluar pantai juga ada seperti trekking dan panjat dinding. Cuma mau ngasi tau kalau air pantainya tidak yang sebiru dan sejernih yang kamu bayangkan, tapi tidak terlalu kotor juga. Saya pernah coba bermain parasailing yang menyenangkan (meskipun pertamanya agak deg-deg an).
