Hello to my 9th country, Indonesia, as I continue my Southeast Asia Blog Tour! So from Singapore, I took a ferry ride heading to Batam, Indonesia. It’s merely around 55-70 minutes to travel from HarbourFront Center Regional Ferry Terminal to Batam Center. The ticket fare is around 25-30 SGD per way and luckily I’ve got my round-trip ticket in a promo for only 30 SGD. And I’ve stayed at the HARRIS Resort Barelang Batam.
As I arrive at the Batam Center Ferry Terminal, I’ve met the very friendly Guest Services “Chikita” from the HARRIS Resort Barelang Batam. She welcomed me with her sweet smile and assisted me to find the shuttle service. It will take us 15-20 minutes from the Batam Center to the HARRIS Resort Barelang Batam.
I was in awe as I enter the main lobby of the resort. It’s huge and appealing with modern interior design. The receptionist really took care of me and gave me something to drink while waiting for my room and getting my details.
After a few minutes, he handed my key card and I’m ready to dive-in to my bed. 😊
HARRIS Room Garden View
I was allocated in a King Room facing the beautiful and refreshing landscaped gardens. The interiors of the room are really modern and impressive. Highlighted with the vibrant orange signature color of HARRIS.
It features a Minibar, Coffee & Tea Maker, Hair Dryer, IDD Telephone Lines, Safe Box, and a 42-inch Smart TV.
Breakfast at Harris Cafe
Everyday the breakfast is served at Harris Café located on the 1st floor of the main building of the resort. They cater to varieties of Asian and Western cuisines, plus their traditional Indonesian dishes.
Breakfast is from 6:30 AM – 10:30 AM.
Rocksalt Beach Club
I had my lunch and dinner here at their prime restaurant, Rocksalt Beach Club. The restaurant is located right next to their infinity pool which is really ideal for parties, romantic dates, or just a simple dinner while enjoying the view of the sea.
Opening Hours from 12:00 PM- 11:00 PM during weekdays and 12:00 PM – 1:00 AM every weekend.
The resort has 3 pools for adults and 1 for kids. They have Lagoon, Rocksalt Whirl, and Rocksalt Infinity Pool perfect for adults. And 1 kid’s swimming pool and water playground.
Aside from pools, they also have Aramsa Spa and Massage, Gym, Boutique, Dino Kids Club, and Bars and Restaurants.
