Everybody loves a good spa day, but they usually come at a steep cot, 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?!

Location:

Tempat Senang:

Located 10 minutes from Sekupang ferry terminal in Batam, this spa does all the work form you when it comes to your perfect spa day. They’ll collect you from the temrinal and take you straight away o the spa, where 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.

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:

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.

The Hotel:

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. $176USD/night

Golf Course:

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 Indah Puri Golf Resort.
