Affordable resorts in Batam

Most of us flock to boutique hotels in either Singapore or Malaysia when seeking a short getaway. But let’s face it - while those hotels may provide the comfort of being away from home, nothing beats the feeling of being completely outside the city.

Instead of splurging on a trip to Bali, treat yourself to a staycation at one of Batam’s resorts. A two-way ferry ride to Batam can cost as low as $38 - that’s about 5 times cheaper than a flight to Bali while giving you the same kind of elusive beachside getaway.

From taking part in watersports to enjoying a massage, there’s lots to indulge in at these beautiful and affordable resorts in Batam:

 

1. Sijori Resort & Spa ($66/night) - serene getaway on a hill
