Located a mere three minutes’ walk from Batam Center International Ferry Terminal and Mega Mall shopping complex, HARRIS Hotel Batam Center (or simply Harris Batam Center) provides some of the best views of the island, overlooking Gedung Astaka and South China Sea.

The corporate colours of HARRIS are orange and white. Therefore, the theme of HARRIS Batam Center is no exception, with the rooms in vivid orange and white tones, to reflect a fresh, modern and welcoming feel.

There are three F&B outlets: HARRIS Cafe, Juice Bar and HARRISSIMO. Although HARRIS Cafe is the main dining room, all three options combined, refuel guests from morning till night.

During my visit to Batam and Bintan in early April, I spent time at HARRIS Batam Centre and managed to have a look at the rooms and some of their facilities.

I also had the opportunity to try its hour-long Javanese-style full body massage at H’Spa, located within the hotel.
