Infinite Studios, an integrated media entertainment and creative services company, in partnership with Landstar Development, brings movies to life with the launch of The Scene, Asia’s first liveable and filmable movie town themed holiday resort. This unique movie themed development is located in the upscale Nongsa coastal area in Batam, Indonesia.
The Scene is a one-of-a-kind holiday resort inspired by classic European architecture by leading architect, Piter Gan and renowned Hollywood scenic artist, Peter Collias. It spans 31,600 sqm featuring 295 low-rise condotel units comprising of studios, one/two bedroom apartments and suites as well as 50 retail spaces. The resort will showcase top-of-the-range facilities including a lobby lounge, all-day dining, alfresco café & dining, rooftop bar, pool bar, clock tower gallery, wedding chapel, fitness and wellness centre, shopping streets as well as MICE rooms.

Beyond The Scene’s cinematic living, this unique vacation home prides itself in its accessibility – a half-hour ferry ride from Singapore and connected to Nongsapura Ferry Terminal by a short footpath. Guests of The Scene will be located nearby several golf courses and the favorable sloped terrain of Nongsa allows most apartments to enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea and lush green landscape.
“The Scene’s unique concept stems from the strong demand we are seeing in Asia for movie production, with more international directors now choosing to come to this region,” says Mr. Mike Wiluan, Chief Executive Officer, Infinite Studios. “What you see on the big screen, we have created in reality with The Scene. Its breathtakingly stunning cinematic environment presents an exciting opportunity as a new vibrant place to stay. Its close proximity to Singapore, excellent transport links, and first-rate architecture and hotel facilities, make The Scene destined to become a new iconic landmark.”
The Scene provides hassle-free investment with a fully managed land lease and professional hotel operations on a net-basis sales and yield. The development guarantees net yield of five per cent per annum for five years and currency risk-free with sales and yield in Singapore dollars.
“Batam is the fastest growing city in Indonesia and has become increasingly attractive to investors due to its pro-business Free Trade Zone,” says Mr. Djaja Roeslim, Chairman, Landstar Development. “We have been in Batam’s property business for over 25 years and have witnessed the growth of its hotel industry, resulting in the city having the third highest tourist arrivals in Indonesia. The Scene is expected to further rejuvenate Batam’s hospitality sector, by transforming the island into a vibrant and dynamic resort destination.”
