This was my second visit to Nikoi. Just like before, the transfer was seamless, the welcome was warm and it's always lovely to see the large spacious rooms. We booked a two bed villa for two couples, so I was a bit annoyed when we arrived to find that the second room was set up with three single beds as... More

Thanks for your review and feedback. I am sorry to hear about your illness after you returned. Giardia can be caught from several sources and you may well have picked it up on your way home. Given no one else in your group caught it or the fact that we have had no other instances amongst staff or guests it... More

i have been to this island on 4 occasions so yes i like it but i have noticed that it is now starting to become rather expensive for what it is and whenever the schools on on holidays they increase the prices of there villas which is not fair on families especially as its mostly families that visit. `The food...

Thanks for the feedback. It is disappointing to read you feel Nikoi is now overpriced. I would like to clarifty that we do not increase the pricing over school holidays as you have suggested. The only differentiation in our rates year round is that weekend pricing is higher than weekday. Our daily board rate (ie meals and activities) has not... More

This is a hard hotel to review as it is quite unusual. It is located on a remote island off East Bintan. To get there you travel by ferry from Singapore (1 hour) a car journey across the island (1 hour) and then a boat journey (30 mins). On the plus side the staff are exceptionally well mannered and incredibly... More

Thanks for the feedback. We are sorry to hear you had trouble sleeping and did not like the concept of a fixed menu. We are the first to admit that Nikoi will not suit everyone and will try and make this clearer in our literature. Thanks again for taking the time to review Nikoi. More

Arriving at the island I was surprised at how spacious the resort facilities were and the rooms. The resort is spread out enough that you don't feel like you are really sharing the island with many other guests and there is ample beach beds and equipment to use at your leisure. Even the pool area is well spaced out and... More

Four days with our two and a half years old granddaughter in house number 9 was awsome. The house is designed very clever and beautiful, all natural materials, a spacious bathroom, very clean and with an outside feeling, a big white bed with seaviews in the masterbedroom upstairs. Four days without any noise of cars, only the sea and the... More

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to hear you enjoyed the natural experience of a private island. Very nice to read your praise for the food. We note your comments about the children's food and will take this up with our chef. We do make nearly all of our food from scratch and so even our ice creams are... More

We recently returned from another visit to Nikoi, our 4th time within just over a year. Nikoi is very easy to get to from Singapore, the entire experience very well managed, and I really appreciate not having to get on another plane. The staff at Nikoi are all so warm and friendly, it feels very much like our home! We... More

Thanks for the feedback. We are sorry about the experience you had with your booking. Unfortunately there was a glitch with the third party booking system we use. We have not had this issue before and hopefully it will not occur again. Our reservations team did notify you very shortly after your bookings was made and your money was refunded... More

Fantastic weekend break. Just over 3 hours from Singapore but feels like a different world Our 2nd visit (first time was in 2008). Still very tranquil yet our young boys (7 & 4) loved the activities - boule, catamaran, sea cat, fishing, movie under the stars and Bbq marshmallow to name just a few (plus sand under their feet everywhere)....

Thanks for your kind review. Great to hear you enjoy your second visit. With regard to your comments about the pool I can assure you that it is kept very clean. The pool is 3m deep in the deep end which together with the colour it is painted give it a translucent effect. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. More

Our second trip from Singapore, and cannot rate Nikoi highly enough. Beautiful island, amazing villas (love the lack of aircon/phone/fridge/TV in the room - makes them even better in my mind), great food... but what makes it special are the staff. Throughout the island they are amazing - the restaurant team are so helpful, as are the watersports team. As... More

We have been to Nikoi several times when we still lived in Singapore. We love the location, the lovely staff who are friendly, kind and spreading good mood from morning to evening. Food is delicious.
