During my family (myself wife and my 1.5 yrs kid) trip to Batam from Singapore, stayed in this Harmoni One hotel. We enjoyed the stay. Hotel is really very good to the standards.
Couple of minor things (may be for further improvement)
1. The room we stayed did not have bath towels by default. Service person supplied it on calling him. (But should have kept by default)
2. Swimming pool is really hygienic. But did toooo much chlorination !!! Due to which, without swim glasses, eyes got very irritation. (May be, whosoever going swim should be responsible :-) ). Enjoyed the hot water pool also.

Overall, worth the money paid.
Highly recommended place.

Room Tip: One side window (for eg Room number 297 side) are blocked viewing. The other side rows of rooms (eg...

you can access this imposing white couloured building through two entrances. one is the drive in where you cab or whatever transportation you are using will drop you. the other is a side entrance where you have to climb a flight of steps to reach the lobby area. the lobby is huge and impressive but there are no signs of reception.we homed in to RECEPTION which are basically three table counters where you are invited to sit and the receptionist records your usual particulars like the passport and contact details.we were processed speedily enough on our second try at about four p.m. as the room was not ready when we first to tried to check in about twelve noon.

the hotel is located near to the BATAM CENTRE FERRY terminal. alas it so close yet so far.it is definitely not a walking distance from the ferry terminal and you have to take cab in either direction.there are many comments about batam cabs and taxis generally do not charge by the meter;hence the charge for even a one km distance is very excessive. cab to the nagoya centre is about 6ok rp.

the superior rooms are about 20 sq metres which appear to be kind of small but space usage is maximized with simple but practical furniture.

the bath room is well fitted with a long bath, sink and the range of complimentary amenities is sufficient.it may be pertinent to point out that the long bath area is not elderly user friendly as the bath is deep and getting out of it is a little challenging. i strongly suggest that a grip be installed which can make the process of getting out of the long bath more safe.

the breakfast range is extensive but same cannot be said about the quality of the food. the hot dishes like the fried rice,noodles,curries etc appeared to be hastily prepared. ( this could be an exception on that day as the hotel was fully booked because of long weekend holidays in singapore).

given its location, room comfort and the full range of facilities like swimming pool,gymp,spa,business centre etc it is a good choice for the price.

although the location is far off, after the day tour...you'd want to stay in a hotel like this. You will be greeted with welcome drinks, Pool is at the rooftop and free use of their gym. The only bad thing about the hotel is that they don't have wifi connection. During our stay, the chinese restaurant just opened so we got 50% off from our bill.

Nowadays people go batam with purchased coupon from those deal website, and my husband & me also did that. We bought the coupon from deal.com at SGD48 with 2way ferry tickets+ 1hr full body massage+ 8course seafood lunch + 1night harmoni stayed with buffet breakfast.

check in : the lobby is huge & grand as they have 3 counter to handle the check-in procedures. Well there is quite fast and smooth.

Room : the room is standard room which we booked earlier from travel agency ,but all standard room is 2 single bed moreover we don't want to sleep separately so we decided to upgrade our room to superior room and cost us SGD10 only.

Superior room : the room is clean and neat. A "just nice size" working desk , massage day bed , queen size bed, mini bar and mini fridge with 2 can drinks and 1 tibits nuts, tv with many choices of channel , wardrobe with a mini safe , hanger and indoor slippers of course.

Bathroom : the 1st impression of the bathroom is satisfied. Bath tub, standing shower place,towel, and tolietries (shampoo,shower gel,cotton bud,shower cap, sanitary pad,and 2 dental kit).

Spa : the receptionist of spa was very very helpful and thoughtful. i was called them abt three times to check the massage price and duration which the brochure were never mention , and they were still attentively. Me & my husband try out the 1hr full body massage plus 40 mins scrub. the massage was awesome and my masseur has very good strength as i keep ask her to lighter.
to ppl never try batam style scrub before, dont ever try!!!!! masseur was APPLY the scrub on me and left cold me abt 10-15 mins until the scrub was dry and then she came back and rub the dried scrub very hard. after the scrub treatment, i found my skin is very redness and injured. But i never blame them because i understood that is their procedures.

Pool : we has no time to have a swim so ....

breakfast : the restaurant where we had our breakfast is huge also! spread wasnt much, but its enough. And yes, delicious. You can get plenty of food around the area. There are lots of warungs and roadside stalls.. of course, if you dont mind. I must say, the food was quite good!

Location : As for location, good thing doesnt come twice but hotel does provide shuttle service to 3 shopping centre at town , but pls call for booking for these service and the latest time from nagoya is 8.40pm.

I will come back for sure for the cheap and nice hotel!

Room Tip: Always go for the superior room, worth for money!!

I got a twin bed room on the 3rd floor. The room was good, but not so large. Dial up internet, no wifi. Room amenities is good but no hair dryer. Breakfast was delicious with lots of variant. The waffles and pancakes was my favourite. I think there so much wasted space in this hotel, especially in the lobby and convention center building. But mostly i feel comfortable staying here. 15 minutes walk to Mega Mall, but it's too far from Nagoya.

Went with my bf for our dating anniversary. The main lobby is huge and welcoming. Check-in is a breeze and the staff attending to us is very friendly. Quite pleasantly surprised that we are able to do check-in at 10am. Was just trying our luck to see if we can have the room early, otherwise, our plan was to unload our barangs and go off shopping. We booked a Junior Suite and requested for higher floor (5th is the highest). The room is spacious and clean. Swimming pool is abit deep in the main pool. Jacuzzi was great with warm water. The service at taxi counter is just as fantastic. Just went I thought we will be getting a second-hand car with manual window and faulty aircon kind of taxi, we were wow-ed to be ushered into a big Toyota Wish! It came with complimentary bottles of mineral water in the taxi. Though the ride was not complimentary, I thought it's better than the outside taxis and it has fixed rate so as not to overcharged.. Everyone is friendly from the beginning till we check out. Enjoyed the stay throughout. Oh yes, we went to the Italian restaurant just one road away from the hotel for our dinner. It has great food and service as well as great entertainment by the live band. They do songs dedications and even sang hokkien songs!

Room Tip: A very decent hotel to stay in. Choose a higher floor, junior suite is very comfortable for 2.
