Travel Indonesia Haiku - Batam Beach View Resort


Batam Beach View Resort
holding up the sky
the bull horn chalets

Batam Beach View Resort
we fish late into the night
from our chalet window

Batam Beach View Resort
the village lane to
the premium rooms

Batam Beach View Resort
at the end of the lane
the sun over the horizon

Batam Beach View Resort
a foretaste of hotel charms
the hillside fruit garden

Batam Beach View Resort is one of Batam's best known hotels because of the pristine sea view it affords. The lanes to the premium rooms resemble village lanes and when the wind blows, one really could feel the magic of the sea here. One of the lanes end at a beach precipice where one can enjoy the sunset. Many of the rooms with horn roofs (Minangkabau traditional house) stand on stilt over the sea. Guests told us they could do their fishing from their window.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
