This resort is just stunning. It has a real rustic, natural and beautifully calm feeling to it. Its a great way to truly unwind from modern life and wake up with the sun. The staff here are genuinely happy and kind people - they looked after us so well and are an excellent team. The kitchen prepares just the most... More

Having lived in Singapore for 8 years now, I have often heard people talk about how fabulous Nikoi Island was and how I had to try it out. So when a good friend decided to stage his 40th birthday there and invited us to come along, we simply couldn’t refuse. GETTING THERE After a the standard ferry ride from Tanah... More

One island. One resort. 15 big houses where you feel all by yourself. A great place than combines the feeling of beeing Robinson Crusoe with the best 5 star resorts. Expensive, yes indeed. But if you really want to do something special and at the same time do nothing, this is the perfect place to be. We stayed in a... More

Nikoi is unique. I hope it doesn't change as it becomes more and more discovered. The food is super delicious, tastes organic and nearly everything is made on the island. The staff are absolutely fantastic - thank you so much Chi-Meng, Jimmy, Gugun, Gaspar, Ary, Fian and of course Yogi for such an amazing holiday!

If you are looking for a rustic island with minimal crowd, this is where you want to be. I very much enjoyed the days bumming around the island, kayaking round the reefs to the offshore sailing. It is pretty much a Club Med feel with some cost on the additional drinks if you do order. The driftwood beach houses are... More

Thanks for your very kind review. It is great to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear you felt it was expensive - unfortunately that is one of the downsides of not having typically more than 50 guests on the island. We still like to think that Nikoi offers great value when you look at it against... More

This place is fabulous. The trip takes around three hours. The ferry from Singapore was large and quite modern, but our crossing was rough. The staff from Nikoi meet and greet as you depart the ferry and they take care of immigration and VOA- a fantastic service. The car and boat to Nikoi where very good. You realise as you... More

What I really like about this resort is that apart from grounded luxurious island living, Nikoi is also sensitive to environmental and cultural aspects, attempting to integrate with local lifestyle by training local staff, inspiring the daily meals with seasonal ingredients and Indonesian cuisine, and designing with vernacular architecture. Environmentally-speaking, Nikoi has a solid policy of minimal environmental footprint, using... More

Thanks for your very kind review. We love the fact that you have recognised our efforts on minimising our environmental impact and at the same time being culturally sensitive. "Truly an oasis in an increasingly bland, cookie-cutter travel landscape" - thank you, thank you. More

We had 5 fantastic days (4 nights) at Nikoi Island and enjoyed every minute. Accommodation, food, spirit, service, animals - everything was just great. Our 4 year old daughter told us afterwards "this was the most wonderful holiday of my wonderful life". We are looking very much forward to come back ...

Getting to Nikoi is interesting, the trip across Bintan to get you to the Nikoi Speedboat pick up was made interesting by Budi (our driver). Arrival welcome and administration is about the most painless one gets when checking in. The staff are super friendly and really helpful. Then they take you to your room (bungalow) and no matter what you... More

This island is gorgeous. The space where the sun meets the ocean and meets the wind near the pool is out of this world. Accomodation is really top notch, and service on the ball every second, yet manages to be discrete. The food, although there is no choice and no menu, was very good quality. Loved the place. However!

Thanks for your very kind review. Your very favourable comments on the food and service are great to read.
