I been wanting to book the resort for some time after seeing all the nice photos which my friends post. But due to the expensive rate, SGD400plus for a seaview resort, stops me for booking it. Another reason is I heard alot of haunted stories from Montigo too. I guess the resort is near to the graveyard, so the "neighbours" will come to visit too?
Since there is new flexi-benefit given to me by my company, I have SGD800 to spend on holiday expenses. So the first resort is Montigo! I was browsing the rates in Cheap Tickets (since they have 20% discount code - NEWYEAR) But this time is still not that cheap after 20% discount, each night will costs me USD399.46 *faint* Then I went to Montigo's website and hopefully there is promotion. Well, they didn't update the 2015 promotion yet. Just when I'm going to give up, I saw a little side pop up.
You won't be disappointed in the rate, at least I'm not! SGD 358.46 nett per night for sea front villa! Yes, it includes the tax as well. But there is a fine print - only valid from Sunday to Friday which means no Saturday booking. No big deal, I just apply for 1 day leave from work.
After discussing with my bf & my friends, I guess 2D1N is too short especially you are only allow to check in at 3pm and check out at 12pm. I need 1 more saturday booking. Back to Montigo's website to scot for more promo codes. Ok, officially there is none. I proceed to do the booking without any promotion and maybe counter check the final price with Cheap Tickets later.
Surprise! There is a special 25% off for Spa villa which is the most expensive villa in Montigo. Comparing Cheap Tickets price for sea front villa USD399.46 (which is around SGD535.27) with the special. Definitely I'm booking directly with Montigo! Total bill: SGD799 for a night in sea front villa and a night in spa villa.
I'm so excited and will be waiting for my batam trip to come soon!
