Zone 2000 Bintan

It was the time for another weekend getaway after our Batam holiday. We spent 3D2N holiday in Bintan and it was full of happy experiences. Among the good food, family time and shopping activities we want to find some entertainment activities for the kid. Basically he loved the hotel we stayed. Other than the playtime at the hotel premises, Zone 2000 is one of the places he enjoyed his time during the stay in Bintan.

On our 3rd day of Bintan trip, we planned to shop at Ramayana Mall. It is one of the popular shopping malls in Tanjung Pinang area. We hired a taxi to reach the shopping mall. Although it is not a big shopping mall, there are enough shops inside with items such as clothing, souvenirs and groceries. The upper level is dedicated to Zone 2000 family game center.

Kid was happy to encounter this games center. Anyway we do not encourage him to play in arcade centers unless we are on a holiday. We bought the entry card with the basic amount of money needed. As I remember it was Rp 35,000 (Around SGD 3.50).This amount was good enough for the kid to play few games until he was tired.

Welcome to Batam Island-Indonesia 🙂

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.
