While Indonesia is a country where prices are affordable, especially for tourists and those on business, we must specify that massage is not cheap in Batam. That is due to Batam’s location near Singapore and Malaysia. Singaporeans take leisurely breaks nearby their home island and can be seen in Batam and other parts of the Riau Islands. That does drive the massage costs up, or should we put this way- massage shops in Batam target Singaporean weekend tourists.
Simple foot massage costs 55,000Rp (4.5 USD). Full body massage for couples for 60 minutes pampers costs 60 USD.
PROS – Things that we like about this shop
Go! Massage and Spa is an amazing place if you are looking for a clean, cheap and soothing place. Chairs are really comfy and provide relaxation. Staff is highly experienced. Two free transportation (within Batman Centre and Nagoya area with maximum 2 pax) are provided. They provide Thai, Signature and Traditional massages. It is a comfortable place for couple’s massage.
CONS – What we don’t like
Staff is not friendly and doesn’t greet well clients. Sometimes the place is super noisy and ruins the peaceful environment. Management is a bit slow to react and help.
