Marriott Hotels debuts in Indonesia

Marriott International announced the opening of Batam Marriott Hotel Harbour Bay on Batam island. The new hotel is located on the island’s laid-back waterfront hub of Harbour Bay, near its Ferry Terminal, where a pleasant 40-minute high-speed ferry ride whisks both leisure and business travellers to and from Singapore, 32km away across the Singapore Strait. With its sophisticated spaces and inspired hospitality, the new Batam Marriott Harbour Bay promises to reinvent visitors’ experience of the island.

“We are very happy to introduce our signature Marriott Hotels brand to Batam, setting a new benchmark for both business and leisure travel in Batam,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China),. “This is the first five-star hotel to open on the island, and the second Marriott Hotels-branded property in Indonesia. Every Marriott Hotel is thoughtfully designed to let guests have the space to work, relax and be inspired, and this is exactly what guests will find when they come stay with us at Batam Marriott Hotel Harbour Bay.”

“As an international business and holiday destination located just a short ferry hop from neighbouring Singapore and Malaysia, Batam has long welcomed visitors to its shores,” said Sean Raine, General Manager, Batam Marriott Hotel Harbour Bay. “With the opening of Batam Marriott Hotel Harbour Bay, we look forward to providing sophisticated spaces and warm hospitality to discerning guests who seek a place to do some work, relax or recharge when they travel to this lovely island.”
