I know you are looking at this post because you love family travel.It is same with us.Any long weekend or school holiday time filled with outdoor activities and short getaways.Here is our 3D2N Batam Getaway itinerary and our experience and review of staying at Harmoni Hotel Batam.
It was last June school holiday which we decided to spend a weekend in Batam, Indonesia. Malaysia and Indonesia are the perfect destinations for short getaways for families live in Singapore. This is why we travel to these countries frequently.
Below is a short photo story to show our experience in Batam and in Harmoni Hotel Batam which is a great hotel for family holidays.
We booked a Delux room for our 2 nights stay.As it was June holiday and the last weekend of the holiday period,most of the hotels were fully booked.Luckily this hotel had few rooms left.The first reason to book this hotel is that it has a kid friendly swimming pool.
Other than that it was mentioned the room size.Compared to other hotels in Batam,rooms size is larger.
Free breakfast included in hotel room price is another reason for us to choose this hotel.Having breakfast in the same hotel is something we like in any holiday in order to save time.We also get opportunity try several local food when we have breakfast buffet at the hotel.
Although there are many attractions in Batam,we didnt visit much places.Instead of that we spent more time at the hotel premises and walking in nearby.
Yes,kid was happy to find the McDonalds next to the hotel.If your kid is also a Happy Meal fan,then this hotel is a great place to stay in a kid friendly holiday to Batam.
Nearby Nagoya Shopping Mall is a great place for families to shop and dine while engaging in kid friendly activities such as game arcades and kiddy rides.
We enjoyed a short weekend getaway in Batam Indonesia.Our stay at Harmoni Hotel Batam was comfortable.Hotel staff is nice and it was easier to hire taxis at the taxi counter in hotel.And at the Nagoya shopping Mall)
In this September School Holiday,we are planning another getaway to Bintan Island.Wait for the updates! 🙂
