Batam Island: A Quick Escape from the City Life

Here's a summary from our trip to Batam Island last year booked via Five Stars Tours travel agency. We took the 2D1N Spa Bliss Package at Harris Resort Waterfront as a birthday gift for my mom.

The package includes:

2-way ferry ticket for 4 adults and two kids (excluding travel tax)
2 rooms (1 family room with a connecting door to a regular room)
Complimentary breakfast buffet at Harris Cafe
2 wood oven-baked pizza at Pronto Pizzeria
Free bowling game (bring your own socks)
Traditional Indonesian massage for 4 pax

  • Read how we spent our Day 1 here. Teaser: we had the pool all by ourselves, the bowling was fun, the pizza was superb, and the traditional Indonesian massage is heavenly.

  • Discover Batam's most popular seafood restaurant called Golden Prawn 933. My mom tremendously enjoyed the birthday dinner we gave her there. The crowd even sang happy birthday many times!

For a re-cap, here are the links in chronological order:
