i was planning a getaway trip from 22nd to 24th May with my girlfriend Grace and we both were equally excited about this trip. After reading the reviews on Facebook and through friends recommendation, i have no doubt towards my choice of resort - Harris Batam Resort.
We arrived around Batam timing 9.20am, upon the arrival we were warmly welcomed by a friendly staff from Harris and ushered both of us into the mini bus to the resort.
initially we were having a thought how come no air con in the bus ? Before we can further discuss on this issue, it was resolved upon reaching the resort in less than a min ^.^ Both of us were very delighted as it's so near to the ferry terminal , so convenient!
Upon alighting the mini bus , i am truly thankful for a refill of welcome drink that taste like ribena and cool refreshing towel on a very bright hot day. We were greeted warmly by the staffs and was led to the lobby.
While we were in the queue waiting to be attended by the friendly receptionist, a chirpy man appeared with a large bottle of pandan cookies.
We were offered cookies and my girlfriend picked one and we shared. That was the very 1st time we met Mr Stylianos Koureas, yes this gentleman is the BEST GM acknowledged by many guests whom had stayed in Harris. (Please see attached image ) You are well deserved to be the BEST GM and indeed his service and hospitality make us craving for another return soon to Harris!
i would like to specially thanks Mr Vincent Gunawan , the project manager of HSPA for creating this wonderful spa area for the guests in Harris. its a MUST try facilities for both genders be it the jacuzzi, couple spas and massage. it is the World Luxury Award Spa Winners 2011 ! Totally agreed! Especially the excellent massage and spa services by Walti and Asri. The arrangement was smooth and we really managed to get a relax massage thru their professionalism.
Towards the vicinity of the HSPA, we were fully surrounded by the serenity of the design and deco. ( please see attached images)
Thanks for the amazing service rendered in the restaurant, spas, bowling center etc.
it was definitely worth coming back again as its so near to Singapore from Sekupang Terminal 35mins.
Guys, ladies you will not be disappointed with the food and the hotel cleanliness etc.
Cheers!! Big thanks to Mr Stylianos and the staffs of Harris, we hope to see more facilities in months to come.
For those whom had not try this resort, please do so as its definitely worth your attempt and surprise.
