Cheers! I always heard this word anytime I visited HARRIS hotel and met the hotel staffs. The smile will never fade away from your face any time you are greeted by the hotel staffs. This reflects the hospitality of the staffs at HARRIS Hotel and Conventions, Malang

Simple, unique, and friendly; these three words reflect the situation in the five-star hotel, which is dominated by orange tone that brings a fresh feeling and atmosphere into the hotel. Situated at the “green” Riverside, near to Malang Surabaya main highway, from which you can easily get access to the bus station and to the airport. HARRIS Hotel and Conventions, Malang is an ideal place to hold a business seminar, business conference and convention, and many other business and personal activities.

In addition, it provides a relaxing atmosphere for the visitors, like me, Shem MD, who came with all family members for an unforgettable weekend in one of the best resort hotels in Malang, East Java, such as HARRIS Hotel and Conventions Malang. I visited the hotel during the weekend when I could do many activities. I stayed at the hotel for a pleasing serenity it offers. Getting into the Green Estate of Riverside, you can easily find the hotel with 229 beds. In addition, it is equipped with a ballroom with a capacity of 1500 individuals and 3 meeting rooms with seating capacity of 50 persons each. This is possible for the ultimate serenity the hotel offers.

HARRIS Hotel and Conventions, Malang, is an ideal place for a relief from the crowded urban life. When arriving at the hotel lobby, I was welcomed by hotel staffs in orange suite, offering professional and hospitable services, such as welcome drink and cold towel. The General Manager of HARRIS Hotel and Conventions Malang, Stylianos Koureas was there to provide us with interesting information on what to do in the hotel. Mr. Stylianos is very warm and polite. It is not surprising to know that he has been awarded as “GM of The Year” for two consecutive years in 2011 and 2013 by Tauzia Hotel Management.

After the check-in process, I was brought to my room, namely HARRIS Suite Room No 709. It was a wonderful hotel room suite, with 48 square meter. This suite room is divided into two rooms, the bedroom and the living room. The bathroom space is divided into two different bathrooms, a comfortable guest bathroom in the living room and master bedroom, which is equipped with on-bedroom guest bathtubs.

In the living room, I could enjoy Smart TV channel, which is connected to internet, equipped with a complete set of complete home theatre and 3D glasses, for a memorable home theatre experience. Yes, you can enjoy the 3D home theatre from the comfort of your hotel room. It is fantastic! you can browse the internet as much as you want, using free but fast Wi-Fi services, which could be accessed from the hotel room or from any other areas in the hotel.

After spending sometime lying on the comfortable bed and enjoying 3D home theater movies in the room suite, I moved to the amazing recreation activity area. There are 3 great swimming pools which equipped with a variety of water playing tools, kid’s playing club (Dino’s club), HARRIS hotel cafe and terrace, HARRIS juice bar, fitness center, sauna, wedding chapel, and ping pong table, and many more. More interestingly, the recreation area is surrounded by amazing natural scene, green mountains, and rows of pine trees. All of these will encourage you stay longer in this area.

After enjoying various activities in the recreation area, I enjoyed Spa service in HARRIS spa, which is known to be the best place for relaxation and spa service in Malang. This time, I had “Cempaka Massage,” a combination of Javanese relaxing massage, body scrub, and milk mask. Two hours I spent in the spa went so fast and I felt so relaxed after the massage. You will find your body and soul relaxed after the Javanese relaxing massage. Your skin tone becomes lighter with body scrub and milk mask treatment. For these convenient services, you only had to pay IDR 325.000, the service and the comfort really pay the price. However, if you need a cheaper one, you can have cheaper spa service in the hotel, for which you just need to pay IDR 175.000. I agree with the statement that HARRIS spa is the best spa in Malang.

Sunset was the time for me to enjoy the classy delicacies in the hotel. I went to the HARRIS restaurant and cafe, which is located near to the main swimming pool. It provides a serene environment. Here, you can enjoy a variety of high-quality foods, with the rows of pine trees as the background scene and with the fresh air of Malang City soothing your mind. Of the various menus, ranging from Indonesian-specific food to Italian food, Chinese food as well as any other Western foods, I opted western-style food, namely, Balsamic Glazed filet mignon, recommended by Mr. Stylianos, the General Manager of HARRIS Hotel and Conventions Malang.

Within few minutes, some appetizers were served to me before the main course, namely, cheese ball and mozzarella sticks. For the main course, I spent IDR 165.000 and the taste really paid the price. I enjoyed the smaller end of smooth perfectly roasted tenderloin. It was juicy and tasty, with balsamic sauce spread around the filet mignon. It blended nicely with the meat. You can taste the real balsamic vinegar and red wine in the sauce. The foods really pay the amount you spend and you will never feel disappointed with them.

Then came the time for hotel room, where I spent the night under a relaxing atmosphere on the king-size bed. In the next morning, I woke up to enjoy the breakfast buffet. The hotel served the best variations of breakfast menus from different countries. You can visit HARRIS Hotel and Conventions Malang for vacation, business, or for any other activities in Malang City, and you will enjoy a memorable experience staying at the resort hotel.
