“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

You can stay at Smiling Hill long or short stay. The apartments are excellent with full services. The facilities are very good! Lovely location, good food, nice pool and very very friendly and helpful staff. I can highly recommend staying at this lovely resort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
SMILING HILL GUEST HOUSE & SERVICED APARTMENTS ...... Is NOT a hotel and is NOT a resort..... It is a unique accommodation alternative located in the heart of a local community on the Indonesian island of Batam. We offers a range of very comfortable and affordable short and long stay rental apartments, studios and guest house rooms...Targeting a substantial and expanding expatriate rental market. FRIENDLY management, with a wealth of local knowledge, upbeat and helpful staff, pleasant laid back atmosphere, excellent and well-maintained facilities and great food ... Is a winning combination that is making Smiling Hill one of the most popular places in Batam for expatriates to gather and relax, especially for family groups. It is very conveniently located within 2 klms of Harbour Bay Ferry Terminal and down town Nagoya and Jodoh.... Where the shopping is great an the local culture is vibrant. If your looking for an opportunity to connect with the local culture whilst in a comfortable and supportive environment this is the place ... more   less
