Familia is a massive spa that has everything from a hot whirlpool to a foot reflexology centre to massage villas to a bar. Spanning a stunning 5000 square metres, Familia is the latest, largest and hottest one-stop destination if you're looking to rejuvenate your body and soul.

We had lunch by the pool and tried the Bebek Sauna, one of their bestsellers. This is the best duck in Batam apparently and it sure was yummy!

The food here is really quite delicious! The Tom Yum Soup, Oxtail Soup and Potato Skin really exceeded expectations. The Nasi Goreng and Mee Goreng were pretty tasty too.

Our full-body massage started at about 7pm and it was 1.5 hours long. The masseuse was strong despite being really petite. I don't go for massages usually but my best friend is a huge fan. She said the massage was really really good and it clearly was very comfortable because she fell asleep and was even snoring. She has a high tolerance for pain so she always requests for stronger masseuses, but she didn't need to at Familia because the masseuses are strong to begin with! Unlike her, I am very sensitive and ticklish so I kept telling the masseuse "softer softer" HAHA. If my best friend says the massage is good, it's definitely good! You can really spend an entire day here at the spa. You can use the sauna, steam room, mineral pool or go for a swim in the normal pool, get a full body massage, fill your tummy at the cafe, grab a drink, play darts and listen to live music at the bar. Sounds awesome? I'm telling you, it is.

My only gripe about the spa is that there's no accommodation attached to it. The nearest hotel right now would be Mercure Hotel which is just right across the road. Bliss Park Residence is being built right now and will be the nearest accommodation to Familia Spa once it's up!

If you're planning to go to Batam soon, and will like to have a relaxing spa day, you know where to go!
