Sprawled across 125 hectares, Opus Bay serves as a “destination experience” for all as it features residential, entertainment, hospitality and business facilities.

The shopping galleria, for instance, will offer international fashion, sports and lifestyle brands as well as food and beverage experiences “brought in by various retail vendors including Indonesian big box retailer Mitra Adiperkasa”.

“As a free trade zone, Batam is exempt from some customs rules and taxes, paving the way for property seekers and investors as an ideal waterfront investment,” noted Tuan Sing in a release on Thursday (8 April).

And with Batam’s Waterfront Ferry Terminal located right next to the development, residents and guests will enjoy a 40-minute direct connection to Singapore.

The development is set to launch in several phases over the next few years; the first phase of Opus Bay comprises about 40 hectares of land, featuring a gated community of 3- to 6-bedroom luxury villas, known as Cluny Villas.

Set to be completed in the next three to five years, Phase I will also offer high-rise residential units, consisting of studios and 1- to 3-bedroom apartments.

The apartments are designed by homegrown architect RT&Q and the villas by ONG&ONG.

Tuan Sing revealed that it has collaborated with several world-class architectural companies and partners for Opus Bay, including Kohn Pedersen Fox – the master plan architect.

“We are very excited to launch Opus Bay, one of the largest integrated developments in Indonesia. We envision Opus Bay to be a smart city and an integrated community which serves as the perfect place for luxurious and affordable resort-style living for locals, expats and travellers alike,” said William Liem, Chief Executive Officer of Tuan Sing Holdings.

“For Singapore residents, Opus Bay will serve as a home away from home and give them a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the mainland and indulge in urban resort-style waterfront living. Investors will also benefit from capital appreciation in an up-and-coming tourist destination.”

Interested buyers can book an appointment to visit the sales gallery of Opus Bay at Level 1 on 18 Robinson Road.
