Joyo is a beautiful island where our hosts had thought of everything. A fantastic place to share with friends and family. A very easy place to relax or be active. I am a bit nervous to recommend too highly as am worried we will never be able to book it again!

Amazing place, stunning view and beach. Water sports available (paddle, sail, kayaking, snorkeling, etc). Staff very kind, prepared and always willing to serve us. Good massage available all day long (paid). Very tasty food with many options. Rooms were beautifully decorated and very well organized for us.

Just the experience of being on your own private island was amazing! The service staff were just so friendly and attentive to detail. They were always available whilst being discreet and giving you the right amount of privacy. The food was very good and having dinner on the beach was a real highlight! The fireworks were very special! Overall this... More

My family and I stayed at Joyo for 6 nights during Christmas and had the most amazing time! Everything about the Joyo - the location, accommodation, beauty, activities, food, service, lovely staff- absolutely exceeded our expectations. The island is completely remote - 2 hr ferry from Singapore, 1 hr drive through the jungles of Bintan and 30min speedboat trip later,... More

I don't do review- but this one has made me to come to Tripadvisor and makes an exception. We stayed in Joyo for 3 nights. The island itself is exceptionally beautiful, clean and well maintained. I probably had one of the best Indonesian foods during my stay in Joyo which I was at first felt uneasy because it was preset.... More

If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place! The accommodation is rustic but adequate. There is no air conditioning, just natural wind and fans for cooling if it gets too hot! Meals were simple homecooked indonesian style food and they usually serve more than we can finish. There are water activities but I did not get... More

Our Chef has worked with us for more than 15 years (more than 10 years in Pangkil , our Sister island) and we pride ourselves in providing Indonesian food which... More

pulau joyo is amazing and wonderful. We had a very smooth journey to pulau joyo which I wasn't really looking forward to. We were greeted by so many people which was nice, everyone is so friendly. The beach huts are amazing, you are obviously on an island so if you don't like bugs do not come here. I do not... More
