Though our stay at Harris - Batam was short, we were impressed by the warm smiles and little thoughtful gestures by the resort's staff.
The courtesy shuttle dropped us off at the lobby where we were greeted with beautifully scented towels (yes, you will definitely need them in the humidity), cold drinks and very yummy cookies.
Check-in took a while but the staff made the effort to update us from time to time. We wandered the resort while waiting and realised that everytime a staff walked by, they would make eye contact and welcome you with a big beautiful smile.
The Japanese suite on the 4th floor (there are 5 floors in the resort) was clean and spacious. We were pleasantly surprised by the stone-bath at the balcony.
The spa, gym and foot reflexology are located in a separate building a short walk away. Swimming pool is just outside of the cafe and all other amenities are also conveniently closeby.
Service with a smile, Harris personifies all that and more. We are just relieved to know that genuine people with great big beautiful smiles and warm hospitality still exist.
