Hotel Maximillian

Hotel Maximillian reception area. Tanjung Balai KarimunThis is the best hotel in Tanjung Balai Karimun. With it's recent renovation and additions, it is a complete destination by itself.

note the Wellcome on the sign (should be Welcome)

The staff are well trained and friendly, especially the ladies in reception. Roni Susanto, the asst. Manager speaks good english and will take care of your needs efficiently. I even had the manager/owner of the hotel offered and drive me personally to one of the local entertainment outlets one night, when the hotel taxi was not available.

Room 302 suite, hotel Maxi tanjung balaiThere is a wide variety of rooms to choose from, Sing$28 studio rooms to >Sing$100 suites. Be aware that some rooms on the lower floors from the old wing do not have any views due to it being blocked by a building next door(bird nest factory).

This is the older suite (I was forced to take it once when the hotel was booked out). This can happen on weekends, so book
early.

View from hotel maxi rooms. You can see the outside area of Hotel Gabion.Some of the rooms in the new wing are also blocked, however you can catch the sea views when you walk the corridors in the new wing. The rooms are always clean.

Outside sea view eating area in Hotel Maxi, KarimunThere is a hair salon on the ground floor. They are very professional, friendly and reasonably priced. The seaview restaurant in also on the ground floor with nice views of the sea and surrounding islands. There is also a conference room which seems to be quite well used.

This is the outside area of the seaview restaurant.

On the 2nd floor there is a spa and massage centre. Very nicely decorated and equipped. There is a cold and hot pool plus a steam sauna. The last time I went to have a look(when it just opened), the hot pool wasn't hot enough and the cold pool wasn't cold enough. It may be different now. The massage ladies were not up to my standard. I prefer to call in my "ibu massage" who does a better job. You can get your massage on the 2nd floor or up in your own room.

Pool lounge area. Hotel Maxi Tanjung Balai

On the 7th floor, there is a cafe/KTV lounge. This area has fantastic view of the whole island. Very impressive.

7 floors of stairways in Hotel Maxi BalaiIf you decide to stay at this hotel, please tell Roni that you heard about it from this website! I might be able to get a better discount next time I drop by... :)

No you do not have to walk up 7 flights of stairs! There is an elevator right to the top

  23. untuk makluman semua pengunjung....
    berhati-hati sekiranya menginap di hotel maxi dan mendapat perkhidmatan massage yg mungkin akan membuatkan kita tertipu dengan ank massage sepertimana pernah saya alami pada 18.3.2012 yg lepas..malangnya aduan dibuat kepada pengurus hotel tidak dibela sebaik mungkin...sebaliknya melepas tangan begitu aje..hotel maxi bukanlh pilihan yg terbaik tetapi masih banyak terdapat hotel yg lebih baik perkhidmatannya...fikir2kan lah sebelum terkena...
