Familia Spa Facilities

Familia Spa

After the past few months of hectic work, the trip to Familia Spa was a much needed retreat to relax my mind and body. I was blown away by the beautiful scenery and the wide range of facilities.


My first stop was at the suana, I like to sweat it all out to eliminate toxins in my body. It is definitely a good therapy to shed the stress and tension that builds up during the day. Next up was the steam bath, the entire room was filled with lemongrass and ginger fragrance that helps to relax my mood. It has been quite some time since I sweat so much, I felt rejuvenated after a good half an hour of rest.



I had a good swim at the swimming pool to cool down after soaking in the sauna and steam bath, this is the best way to enjoy to the fullest. On a side note, the pool is clean and spacious, just nice to fit either a group of family or couples. All three facilities are conveniently situated next to each other without having to walk more than five steps, that is how near they are! The overall experience was more than just enjoyable, I would say it is memorable as well because of the friendly attendants who are always by my side to assist.

Familia Treatment Spa and Foot Massage

Familia Spa


I was led to the VVIP room also known as the Grand Villa room for my body massage. The therapist started off with slow stretching of my muscle to loosen up the stiffness of my body before she apply calming essential oil to restore a sense of balance to my mind and body.



What I liked about Indonesian massage is that their techniques are more precise, the therapist uses her own body weight to achieve the dept needed for maximum benefits to the body. From my knowledge, it is not just a muscular massage as it releases blocked energy channels throughout the body which I felt surprisingly revitalised after the session. The whole process was professional and meticulous, I almost fell asleep halfway because it felt too good!



To my delight, the heavenly treatment is not stopping anytime soon as I was introduced to their popular milk bath straight after the spa indulgence. Not only does the milk exfoliates skin, it also provides immediate effect of softness and smoothness from the fat and protein. I then had a quick bath before heading back to the hotel .

With much anticipation, the service crew recommended their foot massage the next day, if you are someone who likes foot massage, you will not regret trying their service here. The reflexologists are known for using their knuckles of their thumb and fingers to apply pressure on the various points of your foot. Feel free to tell them if you are experiencing unbearable pain, they are skilful enough to adjust their strength according to your request.

Quality Seafood in a Coffeeshop

Singapore Blogger
Once in a while you might want to indulge in good food but yet do not feel like spending too much. Dining at a coffeeshop is often the best option, over here at Seasalt The Seafood Place offers restaurant standard Western style food focusing on a decent spread of fresh seafood. I truly enjoyed the meal not just because of quality food but the entire place is surrounded with big cooling fans to make sure we can all eat comfortably.


Freash Canada Clams with Garlic Cream Sauce
Freash Canada Clams with Garlic Cream Sauce 
A perfect combination of clams with home-made garlic and cream sauce, it is not too creamy which you can even drink it on its own, dip the sauce with a piece of French baguette to enjoy to the fullest. The clams are larger than the ones you might have eaten, it is quite surprising to expect this kind of quality ingredients used in a hawker stall.

Mushroom Herb Rice
Mushroom Herb Rice with Grilled Fish and Lemon Butter Sauce 
There are two types of fishes, Dory or Snapper alongside with 3 types of sauces to choose from based on your own preference. We ordered the snapper with lemon butter sauce and it turns out to be superb! The fish is not over marinated, retaining the original taste, texture is soft and doesn't have any fishy smell. Salad by the side is drizzled with home-made salsa sauce, keeping your taste buds  refreshed.


Hand Battered Fish served with Fries and Greens

I was recommended to try the premium haddock with lemon butter. It is a cold water fish with flaky texture. I believe not many places offers such good grade of fish but you can actually get it here.
Unlike the usual beer batter, the batter is not overly thick, you would be able to taste 90% fish, 10% batter. It doesn't cover the taste of the fish and has a light golden brown and exceptionally crispy bite. Pair with lemon butter sauce to lift up your appetite.

Grilled Whole Norwegian Mackerel

This is a surprise dish from the chef, he said is a must try! Grilled seamlessly and simply dressed with seasalt, such simplicity creates a delicious dish well-liked by many. Moisture is still intact with ultimate freshness, jt is a great choice for people who seeks for nutritious, healthy and awfully good seafood.

My Skin Care Consultant

After a long search, I am pleased to have finally found the right facial consultant to reslove my skin problems. 



Skin D'fine was recommended by my friend Samantha, I was only on my 6th treatment and have already notice obvious improvements. The freckles on my face has gradually faded off and a decent amount had reduced. Mandy who is the beautician and founder of Skin D'fine also suggested to apply LIPO-FaceSlim Focus (from Korea) for skin tightening purpose to prevent having lose skin which would reflect old age easily. Besides that I was also introduced to the LED light therapy, there are a number of colored wave lengths (Red, Blue, Yellow and Green) that help the skin in positive yet different ways. For my case, red and green color lights are applied most frequently to rejuvenate and stimulate collagen production, promoting a more vibrant and youthful complexion.

There are 3 important points which I wish to highlight. Since the first day with Skin D'fine, Mandy has treated my face as if it was hers, she was very detailed, gentle and determined in providing the best to my face. Never have I experience such high level of facial service before. Secondly, Mandy did not force me to purchase any of the packages, instead she spent time sharing benefits of the products used and taught me various methods to take care of my skin to boost the current treatment. Last but not least, she will analyse my skin condition before the start of every  treatment and design a suitable facial formula for the day. This is to accommodate changes and make improvement at a faster rate.

Quality Tze Char food at Enterprise Hub

Singapore Blogger
You will not expect such a good restaurant hidden within the Toh Guan industrial area at Enterprise Hub. The restaurant offers an extensive range of quality Chinese ‘Tze Char’ style dishes cooked by a team of excellent chefs. If you are looking for a quick lunch break or a corporate meeting dinner to dine at with air-conditioned environment, Turbot Live Seafood restaurant is the ideal place to patronise.

Golden Fried Beancurd
Golden Fried Beancurd
Get yourself started with the golden fried beancurd. Stir-fried at high temperature coated with salted egg yolk gravy, it is perfectly crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside. The tofu fragrance literally explodes in your mouth when you indulge.


Herbal Prawn
Served as a nutritious pot of soup with a good mixture of herbs. On first impression you might think it's bitter but surprisingly it's not! These fresh prawns still retain sweet and bouncy. One of the classic dishes that doesn't make you thirsty.

Salted Baked Chicken

A very time consuming dish, the chicken is first fried, stuffed with a variety of ingredients then wrapped with salt to bake for 20 minutes. Because of it's complexity, you would not be able to get this dish easily so treasure while you still can! Go with their home-made garlic sauce for a better enjoyment.

Batam Travelogue by Familia Spa

Greetings from Batam! I have arrived at the beautiful island receiving a very warm welcome from the people of Familia Spa. The day started a little more exciting today because everyone was in high spirits and we were all looking forward to what will come by next.


The ferry duration earlier was about 45 minutes but time past in a blink of an eye. We did not realised our arrival till the other passengers started to stand up and walk towards the exit. I guess we were all too engrossed in our own, it's actually a great opportunity with my crew members as a bonding session.


It has been quite awhile since the last time I was in Batam, I missed the food and the gorgeous scenery still. Without much procrastination, we quickly alighted and headed to Mecure Hotel for a quick break before exploring the facilities around. Once again, I am truly thankful for all the arrangements from Familia Spa.
