Starting in Singapore?
Love the boat rides to and from – we sat on the front row and getting slightly wet, which was awesome!
First, Book Your International Ferry
We recommend booking your round-trip tickets through Batam Fast ferry operator from HarbourFront Ferry Terminal, Singapore to Sekupang, Batam.
Please book the ferries below:
- Arrival ferry (from Singapore): Select the 11.10am departure from Harbourfront to Sekupang, Batam
- Departure (return): Purchase the 12.30pm departure from Sekupang (Telunas boat departs Telunas Resorts at 9.00am).
Please wait until six months before your stay at Telunas Resorts before booking your Batam Fast ferry tickets as Batam Fast ferry tickets are available approximately six months in advance. Transfer time between HarbourFront Terminal in Singapore and Sekupang port in Batam is approximately 1 hr. We recommend arriving as early as 1.5 hrs prior to your departure and heading through immigration as soon as your ferry is available. Please note the 1 hour time difference between Singapore and Indonesia.
Next, Connect to Your Domestic Transfer
After purchasing your international transfer tickets (see options above), you will receive a booking confirmation email from BatamFast. Please forward this email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon your arrival to Sekupang, Batam, a Telunas Resorts team member will meet you after immigration and guide you to the Telunas boat for a ride in our traditional wooden longboat (a modified, comfortable Melayu Fishing Boat) past mangrove forested islands on the way to Telunas Resorts.
This domestic round trip ticket (IDR 900k++/adult and IDR 580k++/child) is purchased during the Telunas Resorts booking process. Transfer time between Sekupang, Batam and Telunas Resorts is approximately 1 hr. 40 minutes.
Flying directly to Batam(BTH)?
Arrive 1.5 Hours Ahead of Your Domestic Transfer Time
From Hang Nadim Airport (BTH), take a taxi to Sekupang International Ferry Terminal. It is generally about a 45-minute hour taxi ride from BTH to the Ferry Terminal and costs somewhere around IDR 150k.
