Harris Resort Waterfront (Batam,Indonesia)

I've read quite good reviews about Harris Resort Waterfront which convinced me to give it a try. I booked a 2D1N stay for my mom's birthday. She's been helping us to take care of Baby Gian and we thought it would be great to treat her to a Spa Weekend Getaway on her special day.

Resort Lobby

Kyla anticipated traditional Indonesian dancers to welcome us ala Bintan Lagoon Resort but we were only welcomed with a rosella tea, cookies and a wet towel upon arrival.

The resort brags about their previous awards namely; Best Family Hotel (Winner) , Most Popular Hotel in Asia (Finalist), Luxury Island Resort (Winner) and Luxury Beach Resort (Winner). 

Room 1

They have cabanas and Japanese themed rooms but we booked a family room.

View at room 1

We opted for the waterfront view instead of pool view.

View at Room 2

Our room is connected to my mom's room. First room has 1 mini fridge and one king-size bed while second room has two-door fridge, two single beds and a breakfast table. Both rooms were equipped with huge wardrobe, you can bring your whole house and stay there forever. Lol!

Both rooms also have clean and sleek bathroom with a tub. Kyla's wish granted. Haha!

It was an off peak season, the pool area is clean and not crowded. That spells heaven for my water lover girl.

Even the bowling area is empty when we went to play. We played as if we own the whole place. Lol!

The Pronto Pizzeria serves the best and the freshest thin crust wood oven baked pizza. 

We had a complimentary breakfast buffet at Harris Cafe. Choices of food are very basic. 

The highlight of our stay is the complimentary Traditional Indonesian Massage. H Spa is situated on a roof top, it provides a fantastic and relaxing hill view. 

This is how the cabanas look like from afar. *We call them chalet here in Singapore.

The view in front of the cabanas is a piece of heaven.

Next to the cabanas is the Sea Sports Center where you can have a banana boat ride. They also have jetski, cable ski, canoes and parasails.

The Harris Extreme Camp offers great activities both for kids and adults.

Harris Grill is a great place to chillax at day time.

A great spot to watch the kids having fun at the beach.

I would say Harris Resort is a little slice of paradise. If i have the luxury to come back again (company sponsored perhaps, lol!), i wouldn't think twice coz hubby and i wanted to try the ATV ride so bad. I would give their facilities and services a four star out of five. The only thing i want to suggest is it's about time to change their towels and bed linens to new ones. They are definitely washed but i spotted faint traces of stubborn stains.
