The magical journey to Nikoi Island began upon disembarkation at the ferry terminal in Bintan. Staff from Nikoi led us to the lounge to wait in comfort while they sent our passports for processing at the immigration. Then we were whisked away in a comfortable car on an hour's journey to Nikoi's private jetty where a speedboat was waiting. The... More

I live in Singapore, and Nikoi has been on my to-visit-list for a very long time, and it definitely didn't disappoint. We stayed for 4 nights, mid-week, and really didn't want to leave! The island surpassed my expectations in every way... the beach bungalows are beautiful, the food varied & delicious, incredibly friendly staff, and the island itself is beautiful... More

Visited May 2015. Journey : Ferry from Singapore to Bintan (about 45mins). Car from Bintan Ferry Terminal to Nikoi's private jetty (about 45 mins). Ferry to Nikoi (about 30mins). Rooms : Comfortable. Spacious. Strong sea breeze. Clean. Rustic. Only a few bugs, but mosquito nets around the bed with a fan inside of the net to keep you cool at... More

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to hear you enjoyed all of the activities and a few new challenges. We agree with you that the turtle hatchlings should not be handled. The only exception we make to this is if they are not going to be able to reach the sea (ie very low tide) or they face some... More

Went to Nikoi for 2 nights while on a holiday in Singapore. We decided on Nikoi based on the tripadvisor reviews and we were not one bit disappointed. We had a great time at Nikoi. Ferry from Singapore to Bintan was about 50 minutes. I would not advise emerald class contrary to what many others have recommended. Main advantage quoted... More

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to hear you and your family enjoyed the food and all of the activities. I think you mean "spotting birds" not "shooting" them as we certainly would not allow the latter. If the ferry terminal is not busy (ie midweek) then you are correct that the Emerald Class on the ferry does not... More

My wife and I took and weekday 3d2n package to Nikoi island and were extremely delighted with the quality of service and pleased with our 1 bedroom villa, there were whole lot of beach activities we could do, we decided to take it easy, by doing some kayaking, board paddling, snorkeling and we enjoy it thoroughly.

A beautiful quiet and relaxing holiday. Very exclusive we felt like celebrities. The accommodation are like tree houses from Swiss Family Robinson. The pool is beautiful and food is lovely. Everything is included except drinks. We found it was a bit quiet at night as there isn't really any entertainment except the bar. It is a lovely break though from... More

Recently stayed on this island for 3 days. What a beautiful and magical place it is. Fabulous rooms and fabulous facilities. Nothing is too much trouble; on the surface that is. On arrival I was asked what food I didn't like and then they proceeded to serve it to me. Why ask if they take no notice? Customer service appears... More

Spent 3D2N at Nikoi recently with family and it was nothing short of memorable, relaxing and beautiful. You wake up everyday to the sound of waves and picture-perfect clear blue skies by the beach. Food is delicious (they can also cater for food allergies/preferences), staff are always around, very friendly and attentive to detail in order to provide a more... More

I knew we were in for a treat from the moment we arrived at the Nikoi ferry terminal in Bintan. Waiting to be picked up I had to make a call of nature and I stepped into the most luxurious loo i have seen, lol. It was a forerunner of things to come. The island is small, you can walk... More

I traveled to Nikoi in April with my husband and 2 children aged 6 and 4. From the moment you step off the ferry in Bintan it feels like you are on holiday. They have thought of everything that can make the journey easier, from waiting for your visas in the lounge rather than lining up, to a helpful friendly... More
