Was here over the last weekend with my family to celebrate my gal's 18 birthday!!
hotel was booked via booking.com
rule #1 : make sure it is batam harris resort, waterfront!! I made a wrong booking with harris batam water center, so thankfully the very helpful booking.com helpdesk was able to assist with the cancellation at the 11th hour..
Once new booking was done..we then made our ferry booking with sindo ( only one that takes to and fro from batam waterfront, which is only 3 mins drive away from the resort). We decided to go via Batam center so we can shop and eat at the hypermart. Shopping is quite good there, then we had pizza hut and our all-time favouriate, A & W. It was satisfying!! Then, we took a taxi to Harris WAterfront,takes about half an hour and cost Rp100,000. Time and money was well spent i thought, as it would cost S$10 per person for a return bus ride to Nagoya via the hotel shuttle bus at appointed times only.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we were greeted by the busking of happy faces and laughters. It was very lively, and we are all ready for fun! Hotel has new and old wings. Check-in was swift, we were on 4th floor at old wing with factastic sea view. New wing offers good pool view, especially great for ground floor lovers.
We walked across the hotel to the local shops and bought nasi goreng, ayam pengek, beers and drinks for dinner. They were good deals !!
Resorts had a chalet atmosphere this weekend, staff were friendly, so accomodating..
a restaurant staff, Haynes wemtout of his way to have a birthday freshly baked at 5pm and had it served to us at 10pm in the bar with his other colleagues in style.. with all smiles and a birthday song. Staff at the nail spa were very friendly too..
We also enjoyed other basic facilities at the hotel like the swimming pool, bowling and pool tables throughout the stay.
Overall, the motto of the resort says it all : SIMPLY FRIENDLY !!
Come with a "to play" mindset, put in a lot of laughter, be joyful and you are guaranteed nothing but a HAPPY & FUNTIME..
