Booked the Honeymoon package via five star tour. This was my first trip to Batam with my gf and the experience was pleasant. Once we docked at waterfront city, we were well received by Harris's staffs from the harbour till checking in. We were upgraded to Carbana rooms which I perceived were more spacious than the usual ones, but on the downside, we had mosquitoes for company since these rooms are standalone and nearer to the beach. Not a major setback though.
Do drop by Harris Cafe for a quick bite if you reached early. Hotel breakfast is served till 10 am.
We had a short trip to Mega Mall, which we spent majority of the time in the Family KTV (on the highest level), which was going for about $S6.00/jam for a small room. Once back in Harris, we had a game of bowling (don't forget your socks if you don't wanna pay for unnecessity) before we went for SPA. We kinda enjoyed the SPA session in a hut for only the both of us. We had 45 mins of massage and 30 mins of Jacuzzi session. Dinner was an option between Steamboat or 4 course Candlelight dinner which we chose the latter. Quite a decent meal.
For the ferry back to Singapore, we can choose to book either the 230pm or 430pm slot back. We took the 430pm slot, but in retrospect, we will prefer the 230pm slot as there isn't much to do after checking out and lunch is not cheap in Harris Cafe if you were to leave at 430pm.
Overall, the package is recommended by couple intending for a short vacation.
