The latest hotel to open on Batam Island, the largest island in Indonesia Riau archipelago province, is the Batam Marriott Hotel Harbour Bay. It is located on the laid-back waterfront hub of Habour Bay, near the ferry terminal. Travel from Singapore takes only 40 minutes on a high-speed ferry ride.

The Barelang Bridge stretches across three small islands of the archipelago offering breathtaking bird’s eye views of the surrounding ocean during the two-kilometre drive across the bridge.
The hotel features 216 guestrooms and suites with plush bedding, spacious work desks, 55″ LED TVs, high-speed internet, bathrooms with rainfall showers and customised amenities. Upgrade to the M-Club level rooms and enjoy additional privileges including exclusive lounge access.
