If there’s a resort in Batam that we think couples would love, it’d have to be the KTM Resort Batam. It’s a semi-secluded resort with few to no guests during off season, providing couples a stronger sense of privacy.
Another thing we love about the KTM Resort Batam is its wooden and rustic architecture, something that’s pleasant to the eyes if you’re looking forward to unwinding from the stress of city life.
In terms of room selection, KTM Resort Batam only offers seafront villas and deluxe villas, both of which are perfect for couples on vacation. If you want to enjoy the gorgeous views inside your own room, we recommend going for seafront villas.

- Ideal for couples or individuals who want some alone time

“What a nice place! We really enjoyed celebrating our honeymoon here cause the place is not so crowded yet affordable and all of those people are very friendly. Food is very good. The ambiance and all. Perfect to bring family and friends here. Can also do theme building here. Very big place and everything is so clean and green!! Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We will surely come back for more!”
“A cool, peaceful & reasonably priced resort situated in a corner of Batam city and on the shore of Singapore strait. There’s a seafood restaurant which offers complimentary breakfast and they serve tasty food too. Getting a hot water pool near the shore, water sport facilities, excellent room service, spa service, mini bar, children’s playing ground in this resort are enough for a relaxing holiday tour in this small island.”

Another reason we consider it one of the best Batam resorts is its cheap accommodation. A room for a single visitor costs less than SGD50, a significantly lower price compared to other resorts in the area.

Here’s what a recent visitor had to say about his stay at HARRIS Resort Barelang.
“Quick escape from working days. With good prices, we can enjoy good service, good room with nice view, swimming pool and cafe also. Delicious breakfast. Nearby Barelang 1st Bridge. Quite a good beach, but needs to be upgraded since it is not natural sand. Might need wider and smooth white sand with a big beach. Overall this is a good place to be your quick escape to relax or to chill with friend and family”
