Interaction with guests
A main attraction of Smiling Hill is the people – our expat and Indonesian staff and long-stay tenants are well informed and happy to help visitors and newcomers with reliable and up-to-date information on everything from open air food market dining and shopping to golf outings and island tours - what to do, where to go and where NOT to go. Our staff make guests feel very welcome. Key local staff speak English, are well trained and are accustomed to dealing with international visitors.
We pride ourselves on a quick response to any problems or issues - our management Hand Phone is open 24 hours.
Other things to note
Smiling Hill provides FREE transfers to and from the HARBOR BAY Ferry Terminal. We do NOT provide transfers to other ports. We strongly recommend guests travel by Horizon (or Batam Fast) ferries to Harbor Bay. This port is just 2km from Smiling Hill and close to the main business and shopping district and major hotels. The trip from Singapore is quicker and the terminal is new and very efficient.
- Smoking is permitted but discouraged. We ask smokers to please smoke on outside terraces and not inside.
- Guests are asked to be considerate and not have noisy gatherings in the apartment after 10.30pm. We have a poolside party area with servery, music system, large flat screen with USB input, toilets and more where guests can party well into the evening and beyond without disturbing others.
