Montigo Resort Nongsa / Batam, Indonesia


These days, Batam is the third busiest entry port to Indonesia next to Bali and Jakarta. It has become the favorite resort destination to most travelers and locals alike because apart from its hectic development, Batam still offers a leisurely island escape.

This is where Montigo Resort Nongsa comes in to offer their exceptional brand of beauty and service. The resort’s vast architectural expanse of white is gorgeously set against the deep blue Nongsa waters. The 88 villas in this contemporary resort each comes with a personal concierge, for starters.

Each villa boasts of uninterrupted sea views through its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a private beach area. Though the beach area is not much for swimming, the infinity plunge pool from your personal space would definitely urge you to dive in. The luxurious 3-storey villas are spacious, with details ensuring clientele’s ease and comfort. The interiors exhibit clean lines and a monochromatic color scheme that’s both pleasant and relaxing. Simple paintings adorn the walls and an elegant four-poster canopy bed is the highlight of the master bedroom. Even the sunlit bathroom does not disappoint; modern fittings, cool skylight, and a full-sized tub complete this indulgent getaway. The smaller room has two double beds and its own toilet and shower, making it perfect for extended families. The third level of the villa features a roof deck ideal for al fresco barbecue dinners with family and friends. The resort has their own BBQ menu you can avail of.

Beyond your villa, Montigo presents you with a long list of activities to engage in in their specialized areas. There is the house spa with rustic Indonesian atmosphere, the ample gym that offers yoga classes, and a couple of all-day dining restaurants. They also took into consideration the various ages of guests as they have a supervised giant playhouse for kids, a bar & beach club for young adults, and a convention room for planned meetings or weddings.

Montigo Resort Nongsa takes attention to aesthetic details to a whole new level. The result is premium hospitality that guests more than appreciate; they cherish the entire experience.
