I had been given Chinese New Year off at short notice, living / working in Qingdao China during winter is cold, windy and grey. The best option for flights was direct to Singapore, so I organised a getaway at Palm Hill / Goodies, Batam, I had lived there for several months some years previous so wanted to go back and just chill out and take in a little sun.
On arrival I was given one of the villas near the restaurant, it was one bedroom with well-appointed kitchen and furnishings. The cost was approx $57 USD a night which is very reasonable.
The restaurant is located by the pool where you can enjoy the open air breeze and have a cool beer under a thatched roof.
The menu offers a large selection of well-proportioned western meals with a good range of Australian Beef.
There is now a BBQ area where guests can choose cuts of meat from a glass fronted refrigerator and roast to their liking.
The restaurant staff are courteous and well mannered, always service with a smile and the beer icy cold.
People of a diverse background visit Goodies, it’s a friendly relaxed environment where you can spend hours chatting to new friends, everybody has a story to tell.
I can recommend Goodies / Palm Hill for a meal, and long or short term accommodation stay.
