We spent a long weekend on the island recently and had an amazing time. Despite our reservations about the no walls in the villas, we were pleasantly surprised that the constant breeze and fans were enough to keep cool. The mosquito nets were effective but you needed to apply everyday to avoid them - it must have been the time...

Private island resort on a small privately owned island, no stress, very laid back - all that you could ask for on a tropical island, all facilities provided- from swimming, snorkling, wind surfing or just lazing under an umbrella on the pure white sand. Delightful food and wine and very comfortable chalets- only 15 in all-all Eco driven Indonesian style....

Its very close to Singapore so recommended for residents of Singapore. But if you are from other countries.... you probably have other better choices for beach resorts. Why do I say mixed feelings about this place? Pros: 1. Limited number of rooms so the resort always felt spacious. 2. Great food served by the chefs. Dessert to die for! (except...

Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Wonderful that you enjoyed the food, the tennis court, the clean beaches and the spaciousness that the island offers. I am sorry you did not enjoy the Indonesian food as the general feedback is that guests really enjoy this and would like to see more of it. Obviously it is difficult...

Normally to find a secluded island paradise involves a gruelling international flight and long transfers, but the ease of transport from ferry-to-car-to-boat was refreshing and very welcoming. A friendly Nikoi Island liaison meets you when you step off the ferry and takes your passport to get stamped at immigration while you wait in the comfort of the terminal lounge with...

We are a family of 5 - my wife, kids (8, 10 and 12) and me. We stayed at Nikoi at the end of our holiday, on our way back home. The island is beautiful, felt like we escaped the big city and were grateful to be back in nature. The island itself is beautifully kept, approx 3km in circumference,...

A truly beautiful place. From the moment we arrived at Bintan ferry terminal, we were whisked away by friendly staff and didn't have to worry about luggage or customs. All handled for us. A lovely surprise and a great way to start a relaxing holiday. The staff on the island are wonderful, warm, friendly and helpful. The food is amazing...

Thanks for your very kind review. During school holidays we can get a lot of children staying on the island. As you point out our staff do try and manage this as best they can. Out of school holidays and during the midweek there are typically only a few kids on the island. We are indeed developing a second private...

Nikoi island offers a unique experience for couples, families, friends, etc. We have been there at least 5 times in the past 5 years and whether we went as a couple only, later as a family with kids or as extended family/friends holidays, we always enjoy going there.
