We took a short trip out of Singapore to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a really nice weekend away thanks to Anton, Nagato and Ayu who spared no effort to make sure that we would have a special time. All the other staff were really friendly and cheerful all the time too. The room (bungalow rather!) was huge... More

My friends and I booked the island to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. This is a true island getaway, far removed from everything else. There is a conscious integration with nature here so don't expect any air conditioning or a bug-free environment (bring your own spray though theirs is pretty potent!) and be prepared to perspire a lot especially in...

We stayed in PJ for six nights, myself, husband and 14 month old. We had the most amazing time in such a beautiful place. It was a bit of a journey to get there, but the staff made the journey as seamless as possible. We were welcomed by the young, vibrant staff as soon as we arrived and shown our... More

Wanted to celebrate a special birthday at a special place and Joyo did not disappoint. The journey was made easy by being met at the ferry terminal on arrival and being whisked through customs. Then having treats in the car on the way through Bintan. The journey back was just as effortless with all the paperwork done. All we had... More

We knew that Pulau Joyo would be secluded. What we hadn't anticipated was that there would be more staff than guests on this idyllic tropical island! The staff were charming and nothing was too much effort. They went beyond the call of duty to make our wedding anniversary romantic and provided delicious meals in scenic settings. We paddle boarded, swam,... More

Pulau Joyo doesn't wow you like a 6-star resort. Nothing there is fancy. But it is a very impressive place. The staff are excellent. The food is very good, and they cater to your requests, such as for vegan food. The rooms are huge and the beds are comfy. They really seem to have thought things through. For instance, they...
