Hotels in Batam Island range from international hotel chain resorts to city hotels. Sharing many similarities with its sister island Bintan in terms trade and commerce, it is a popular tropical island retreat. Batam is also only a 45-minute ferry ride from Singapore.
Most of the Batam island hotels are located in Nagoya, the island's main town. Most successfully blend features of business and leisure. Batam is also a connecting hub among other destinations within the region, with many ferries as well as air routes with cheap airfares to Indonesia's capital city of Jakarta and other parts in the archipelago.
