The island’s resort development include a 230-room suite hotel, a condotel with 200 rooms and over 400-rooms in villas.  This gated island, will be the first of its kind in the world. Travelers will be able to access the theme park via a yacht or a ferry from the Harbourfront ferry terminal, and the theme park itself is located between Batam and Singapore. About 70 percent of the island will be used as a nature sanctuary. Other activities on the island’s theme park include nature walks, and aquaculture tours. Funtansy Land, when completed, will be located in the vicinity of other theme parks, including Resorts World, Marina Bay Sands, Universal Studios, and Orchard Road. Meritus Hotels & Resorts will manage this development.
