Stay right in the action at Horison Ultima King’s Hotel, one of the liveliest resorts in Batam. A turret brings a whimsical touch to the contemporary building, while huge windows at every turn give you continuous views over the bustling city.
Get a taste for local life at the Pasar Mega Legenda market, a 20-minute drive away, where you can peruse the colourful tents and fill up on salty dried fish, spicy stews and fragrant coffee. Batam’s famous shopping isn’t too far either; in fact, the hotel runs a regular shuttle to the BCS Mall. Head here for designer outlets, Taiwanese bubble tea and Hong Kong-inspired dim sum.
You’ll get views that stretch as far as the South China Sea from your private room, almost like you’re surveying your own kingdom. Deluxe and Grand rooms, as well as Junior Suites, balance chocolate brown furnishings against plush cream carpets for an ultra-relaxing atmosphere. Dock your iPod and sink into a comfy mattress for a deep beauty sleep while city lights glisten through the windowpanes.
In the morning, your caffeine fix will be waiting at The Coffee Shop and Lounge. Sit beneath hanging lanterns while you observe the streets teeming with colour and activity below. Later on when day turns to night, head to the glamorous Asher Bistro and Lounge for a mojito with lashings of rum and refreshing mint leaves at the circular bar.
