Turi Beach Resort - Batam Island

Batam Island of Indonesia is one of the most popular weekend holiday destinations from Singapore. Located only 20km from Singapore, this  45km x 25km  island is the nearest Indonesian island to Singapore and easily accessible with a short ferry ride. Until recently the island was mainly a sex and night life getaway from Singapore (and Bintan was the destination for families and idyllic holiday seekers) but in the past few years, Batam has also been slowly transformed into family resorts destination.

There are several nice hotels and resorts to stay in Batam. If you are looking for a Batam resort which is a little away from everything then Nongsa Resorts area is for you. 4-Star Turi Beach Resort is nested in Nongsa Resorts, at the northeast of Batam Island, and  is surrounded by 18 hectares of lush tropical landscape and offers beautiful and serene place to relax and enjoy great sea view. Although it takes 15 minutes to reach by ferry, the location of this Batam resort is a bit out of the way and far from the city. But if you are looking for a nice resort to relax and for a short getaway from Singapore and away from a busy city, Turi Beach Resort offers one of the best and easiest to access alternative. With different type or rooms such as Tirta Junior Suite, Riani Deluxe Beachfront, Tirta Premier Beachfront, Riani Suite, Tirta Premier, Riani Suite Beachfront, Tirta Executive Suite, Riani Deluxe, Riani Superior, all equipped with Air conditioning, Cable television, Coffee/Tea maker, Minibar, Dressing area w/vanity & sink etc., the beach and swimming pool will be just right in front of the room.

Spacious and generally clean rooms with nice view of the sea + pool and private small balcony with Balinese-style furnitures in some of the rooms, air con, big bed and bathroom and relaxing sound of waves from the sea are the additional positives of the resort.The pools and small beach are also quite nice and well-maintained, surrounded by beautiful coconut trees.
