2D1N - New to Batam

Hi Expertise:

Appreciate your advice whether to go for GGI or The Hills Hotel for 2D1N package trip to Batam sometime mid Feb. We are there juz for massage & food. Also which ferry terminal to go conveniently leaving for S'pore around 6-7pm?

PS: Hi Chandrana, need your expertise to recommend good local food tips. May be you can drive us around?

Hi Ros,

The most convenient ferry terminal to leave batam for singapore is harbourbay, which is a 5-7minutes taxi ride away from Nagoya Hills.

Right. I would choose The Hills Hotel, which is just opposite Nagoya hill Mall. There are also spa and massage just infront of the hotel too. The room itself is not new, but is reasonably maintained. You'll save time when yo stay there. Anyway, I have never stayed in GGi before. Heard it is a new hotel.

Either case, enjoy your trip :-0

GGI is a new hotel and located just outside of Harbour Bay Mall. For its soft opening price, it's best value for money right now. But if you wanna go anywhere else, you need to take a cab.

The Hills is located just opposite of Nagoya Hills mall. Location is a plus. But room-wise, i think GGI is better for now.

So up to you.

Can't promise you anything right now. Message me again when you have decided and it's closer.
