Louvre Hotel Group will open two hotels next year totaling almost 550 rooms at the Funtasy Island theme park on Batam, an island about 10 miles from Singapore.

Louvre will open a 341-room Royal Tulip and a 183-room Golden Tulip hotel. There also will be a 260-seat restaurant.

Funtasy Island bills itself as the world’s largest ecological theme park. It covers 810 acres (about five times the size of Disneyland) and can be reached via shuttle boats from Singapore in about 20 minutes.
