Everybody loves a good spa day, but they usually come at a steep cost, unless you’re in fabulous Indonesia! What if I told you that you could have a 6 hour spa day, including lunch, for about $175?! Now you know why I came here 4+ times in the 2 years we lived in Singapore!
Looking for more info from other islands in Indonesia, including Bintan, Bali, The Gili’s and Nusa Lembongan? Check out my other Blog Posts!
Located 10 minutes from Sekupang ferry terminal in Batam, Tempat Senang hotel and spa does all the work for you when it comes to your perfect spa day. They’ll collect you from the terminal and take you straight away to the spa. It’s all rest and relaxation after that! Their customer service was outstanding and I’ve never felt more relaxed in my life after leaving. Martha, the manager, was fantastic.
How To Get To Tempat Senang:
Batam is a small island, just a short, 45-minute ferry ride from Singapore. Note: Batam is one hour behind Singapore time.
For $28USD, you can book the Batamfast Ferry from HarbourFront terminal, Singapore to Sekupang Terminal, Batam. Be sure to pre-book your tickets online to ensure you’ll get to your spa day without trouble. Tempat Senang will instruct you on which ferry time to choose, depending on the package you selected with them. There is no visa or fee on arrival for those holding a US Passport. Be sure to read up on the Visa Requirements for your Nationality.
The Spa At Tempat Senang:
The spa is quaint and quiet and the decor is similar to Bali, with dark wood furniture and greenery. It’s the perfect places to relax. The cost of a full day spa package is $1,890,000IDR ($141USD before tax) M-F, and $2,880,000IDR ($215USD) on the weekend.

Note: I’ve highlighted my favorites in each list.
Massages: Aromatherapy, Hawaiin Lomi Lomi, Chinese Bamboo Stick, Shiatsu, Balinese, Indonesian, Swedish, Office Massage, Tandem Couples Massage, Thai. Choose MAX 2.
Scrubs & Wraps: Scrups: Alone Vera, Lavender, Coconut, Citrus & Salt, Coffee & Rice, Peppermint, Cempaka, Javanese Lulur, Seaweed, Himilaya Salt, Bamboo & Lemongrass, Tamarind Body Peel. Wraps: Mud, Hot
Ear Candling: After massaging all the lymph nodes around the ear and neck, a hollow candle is placed in the ear which through the process of convection creates a slight vacuum allowing debris to migrate up into the candle. Skip this one!
Facials: Normal skin, Combination skin, Oily skin, Stressed skin, Dy skin, Hydrating, Acne
Reflexology: Having your feet and calves rubbed for an hour while sipping on some wine is like pure heaven!
Pedicures: Definitely a great choice if you’re feet are in need of some grooming, otherwise skip it and get an extra massage.
Hair & Scalp Treatment: Avocado Cream for Dry Hair, Aloe Vera to Moisturize, Peppermint for Dry Scalp, Honey Collagen to Strengthen
Hot Herbal Compress (Heat Treatments): This is a 400 year old heat-massage treatment that uses a steamed rounded cloth bundled with herbs and spices to administer the massage, allowing the warmth to travel deep into the muscles to soothe chronic body aches and pains. THIS IS A MUST DO…my favorite one!
Milk Bath: Pamper yourself in a relaxing milk bath set in our outdoor kabuki bath house to soften and rehydrate the skin. Skip this one too.
The Restaurant At Tempat Senang:
The open air terrace restaurant is the perfect atmosphere to eat the ABSOLUTELY delicious food that they have to offer, and they have plenty of vegetarian, gluten free and seafood free options too! Order the sampler of food, the Beef Rendang or the Kaffir Lime Chicken…wash it down with their thai alcoholic drink (name forgotten)…its divine.
Not only is Tempat Senang a spa, but it’s also a quaint hotel, with 14 different rooms, each with their own special decor and theme. Many times, they run a promotion offering a free night in one of their rooms if you book a full spa day on a Sunday. The cost is about $176USD/night.
Wondering what your husband should do while your’e having a spa day with the ladies…send him to the golf course! Tempant Senanag is located just beside IIndah Puri Golf Course.
This is a GREAT bachelorette day location!
If you have the spare time, book a later outbound ferry and have dinner here as well. Get the 7 course meal from around the world.
Thank you SOOOO much for stopping by!
