Our 6th, 7th or 8th time to Nikoi so we can clearly be accused of bias. But for my family and I this place is a little piece of heaven. Three hours from Singapore with no flying involved. The staff make the place even though the setting is perfect. They are friendly, playful, attentive and genuinely fun loving......this is a... More

It was my 3rd visit and i still cant get over the excitement of going away for the weekend to nikoi. Everything is simply perfect. Eco-friendly & rustic without compromising luxury. It is a very refreshing concept, not the usual cookie cutter resorts. As always, ferry transfer, accommodation and maintenance of the island is maintained at high standards. Im happy... More

Thank you very much for your delightful review. It is always a thrill to welcome repeat guests back. We have a very low turn over of staff so it is not surprising many of them remembered you from previous visits. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again soon.

Thanks for taking the time to post your very kind review. It is great to hear you enjoyed, the rooms, the meals and to hear that our kitchen team were able to look after your dietary needs. Yes unfortunately drinks are expensive but as you point out that is driven by external factors. Thanks very much. More

We recently returned from a fantastic trip to Nikoi Island with our 8 month old baby. We had been told it was fairly rustic so were quite pleasantly surprised with the chic fitout. where every detail was quite considered. The villas themselves are quite large with numerous areas to relax and enjoy the location and soak up the sunshine. The... More

Thank you very much for your very kind review. It is very pleasing to read that you thought the food was amazing. As you point out wine is rather expensive - a function of some arcane regulations and ridiculous taxes. We do try very hard to try and make it reasonably priced and believe we offer a very unique selection... More

We just had the most amazing trip to Nikoi Island. Our second time there and the first time for my husband's parents who we took as a gift to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the three bedroom house which was so beautiful. Gorgeous views from all three rooms. Pity the beds in the two smaller rooms can't... More

We had an amazing long weekend in Nikoi! I can not say enough good things about the island, resort, accommodations and food. We left feeling relaxed and pampered. Our children (ages 9 & 10) had an equally wonderful weekend. The KidsClub is wonderful! My children have stated that this has been their favorite beach vacation (they want to thank Yogi... More

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!
