A few months ago, the Seedly team was planning to go to Batam for a retreat.
When planning for the trip, Yi Xuan, Ming Feng, Kenneth and I came across Montigo resort: a popular resort that many Singaporeans go to- either for a couple’s retreat or just a quick getaway with the family.
While luxurious and extremely #insta-worthy, staying at Montigo Resorts also entails a hefty price tag of about $200++/night. So for those who are looking to go to Batam for a quick, resort getaway, here are 7 alternative resorts that you can go for, at the fraction of the price!
