Montigo Resorts @ Batam, Indonesia

For a start to the hotel was absolutely incredible. Well when I say hotel I mean a series of luxury villas facing to Singapore and the crystal blue seas of The Straits. It truly was just amazing. Off we trotted here for Mary’s birthday, and usual 30 day visa run (needed at the time). Rooftop party floor, private pool, massive bedrooms, golf buggies to get you around. This was true indulgence at Montigo Resorts @ Batam, Indonesia.

Then we come to the food. We only ate at Tadd’s restaurant, as we were advised by the front desk to choose here. It was lovely. The staff were incredible, doting on Baby Jude and looking after him continually. The menu was a mix of Western and local fair – of course we went 100% for the latter option every time, and I am so very glad that we did. In fact I had the same dish two times running it was that bloody good, believe me. We love Montigo Resorts @ Batam, Indonesia.

Here is Mary’s dish from day one of our stay, the delicious looking fish dish of Ikan Kakap Bakar. It is grilled snapper, with Turmeric and coconut cream sauce – see the yellow of the Turmeric. That is accompanied by sautéed spinach with Ginamos (Filipino for shrimp paste) and yellow rice – again check out the Turmeric. Mary stated absolute delight of this choice by groaning every time she took a mouthful. Looks bloody good too.

Not a massive fan of this one it has to be said, but when in Rome… Gado Gado is an Indonesian salad – loads of ingredients in this from long beans, beansprouts, peanuts, quail eggs, bean curd, chicken sate and crackers. Wow! That is indeed a lot. It was OK but to be honest I think I would have added salt and pepper to give it some flavour punch.

Here comes the BOOM. My dish, the one that I had two days running, is this beautiful thing. Also know as Tahu Tek. This was a chef recommendation and there is no doubting why, as this was an absolute belter. Vegetarian too, which is little unusual for me, but man so good. It’s basically an egg and tofu omelette, but also contains beansprouts and comes with this absolutely decadent black peanut sauce which is simply divine. Usual garish of some spinach, and grated carrot and cucumber. Basically get that stuff off the top and let me get to the good stuff. Long may this continue to be a chef recommendation, as I think I’ll be having this every time we go back. YUM!!

So I would say if you have a family that likes a little luxury without being pretentious, and enjoys bloody good local fair – get yourself over to Batam. 40 minutes from Singapore to paradise and yummy yummy cuisine. We loved it here at Montigo Resorts @ Batam, Indonesia. I am very confident you will too. Check them out here – ENJOY!!!
