“A place for a short getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Everything is good..unless u didn't request NEW WING rooms which are cleaner and very neat... overall you have to be on your own rather to expect the staffs to show u around...

The Bad: Food pricing is way to expensive for ala carte menu..No arcade room.. Late check in and expect everyone to crowd there and always get clash up with the timing of the bus going to Nagoya Hill........For short and easy getaway..this is a good place..besides here..the next will be batam center where is more more conv...

Room Tip: Room 2502 ------ New wing aka New block..level 5...right out from the lift lobby facing the pool...

The resort is pretty old in general - bedsheets - AC - pool not really clean...

You have to know that you don't have many activities to do in Batam and the visa fees are pretty expensive - depending on your nationality.

A well-priced resort which you should consider. Have been here on several occasions & we are always warmly welcomed at the hotel lobby with welcome drink, cold towel with background music. Though located away from the city centre, they do provide shuttle bus pick-up/drop-up (at a fee if not inclusive in your package) at designated times.

The buffet breakfast spread is decent with a mix of Continental & Asian. We saw that there are new dishes this round, good effort! We were impressed with the chicken porridge last round but this time it was too "thick" thou it remain popular to the guests. Ala-carte lunch (lamb redang, salad & pizza) is also good & the portion filled our stomach. And we never fail to have dinner at the Korean/Japanese restaurant (which I believe is not part of Harris) - the food is good thou pricing is similar or higher than that in Singapore but we felt it is well spent for the quality.

The staff are friendly (thou some albeit shy), responsive & prompt.

We always have the 3-hours spa; scrub, massage & jacuzzi at the outdoor spa pavilion. Time your session well to get a cosy ambience as the dusk set.

This is way overdue but nonetheless, we like to say a big thank you to Ramli & Linda for helping to arrange our stay in August (8th-9th) this year. It has always been on our minds to write a thank you note but we have both been really caught up with work since our return.

Despite the little hiccup prior to the trip, we were blown away with the attentiveness that Linda has paid to our requests and the good service rendered by the Harris staff in the resort. We had a great time unwinding by the cafe/pool and the massages (we did the foot reflexology on the ground floor and body massage at the spa) were relaxing.

It was a very pleasant short getaway in Harris and we will definitely be back ;)

Here i just like to name a few staff who have make my day at Harris a joyful one.
Firstly Mr Ramli who have help me and my family members on the Hari Raya Aidil Adha ceremony from the beginning to the end. He was so helpful and a trust worthy staff in carrying the task. And not forgetting Ms Linda in her assistance in the booking of the rooms. Secondly Mr Ahmad for his assistance during my trip back home to Sekupang ferry terminal as my brother transportation was unable to ferry us as it was crowded. Seeing this he make an effort and arranged a transportation for me and my daughter to be send to the terminal.
Thirdly Mr Xaveriut for his effort in assisting my mum-in-law and my 2 aunts along with my niece during breakfast at the cafe. They are so happy with the service render during their breakfast.
With the team members that your resort haved it make the trip such a joyful one that my aunt wanted to come again in the near future. But rest assurance that i and my hubby plus my daughter will be dropping by in January 2014 which we are looking forward. Till we meet again KUDOS keep up the good works.

Room Tip: Family room is spacious n the Japanese room is excellence base on my daughter visit on May 2013.

Me and my family first time staying at this resort. Arrived at the ferry terminal directly picked up by orange hotel bus, after arriving at the hotel we were greeted with dances and given a cool towel where it can be used to cool down the overheating during the trip. Since we brought two children by reception advised to stay in the family room, the rooms are spacious and there is a bunk bed, my children are very happy to sleep there so no need to additional charge to pay extra bed.

We came to the resort just to relax and evade from the hustle bustle of the city, so the location is far from the city is not a problem for us. This resort has a staff that is very friendly and polite, wherever you meet them greet and smile. There are many activities, bowling, shooting targets, flying fox, sea sports even a special room for games. Wifi is also very good, the connection while walking from the room to the restaurant there is no off connection.

I think this resort is ideal for relaxing with family and next times we would go back there again.

We stayed here for only a night because we wanted to experience the hotel after so much rave about it by friends. The rest of our two nights, we stayed at another hotel in Nagoya area... Harris Resort is a pleasan hotel. The surrounding itself gives out a very relaxing feel. The only thing that spoilt our day was the haze, which of course we could do nothing about it. The swimming pools were nice, the staff at the pool area were all very friendly and our kids plus other kids around surely have had a good time there. Our room was on the second floor with no view at all. As it was only for a night, we did not ask for a room change. We ate the much-talked-about pizza for dinner. Honestly, the pizza tasted normal. Nothing out of the ordinary... Overall, our stay was a happy one.
