Seafood, Shopping and Spa are the 3S you look forward to when you plan for a trip to Batam and that's exactly what I have done.
Speaking of planning a trip to Batam, you can definitely plan your trip ahead by securing your ferry ride back and forth through Batam Fast, where they have some of the best prices in town. This is can also be done online right here so you can skip the queue to buy your tickets.
After I got off the ferry, I went down for lunch for some amazing seafood at Ikan Bakar Cianjur (check out my review here. I went around after at Nagoya Shopping Mall and I couldn't help but take up the chance to unwind to at the nearby Eska Spa.
Eska is definitely the place to consider especially after I have experienced the level of professionalism, cleanliness and types of service provided over here. They have a wide variety of spa and beauty services to choose from such as hair, nails, waxing and many more. However as a guy, I wasn't very much interested in anything else but a massage.
After looking through their extensive menu of services and making payment, I was ushered into this really pretty room which set the ambiance for relaxation.
As a person who moves around a lot and does some physical work, my muscles are always in a bunch of knots. I was recommended to try out their Healing Stone Massage (RP 200,000) which helped alleviate a lot of my sore points.
If you are a little ticklish when it comes to a full-body massage, Eska has a Reflexology (RP 150,000) option for you to consider as well that you can relax into, and leave with renewed and moisturised feet.
It's always nice to know I have options nearby to unwind with, apart from my usual spots in Johor Bahru and Bangkok, and I think this is a good place for your consideration when you take a trip down to Batam.
