4 days of timeless pleasure. Very nice beach houses that give nature feeling. Great moments for kids and parents ! Very helpful personnel and a nice ambience of "everything" possible, but no obligations. We hope certainly to come back again.

We are a family of four (kids age 7 & 10) lucky enough to have spent 2 days on beautiful Nikoi Island. On our current 12 month around-the-world trip we have visited a number of remote locations, few of which have managed to dial it in as well as Nikoi Resort. The combination of nature and comfort made for an... More

Every aspect of Nikoi is designed around providing you and your family with the ultimate island experience, from great food, excellent accommodation to peaceful sandy beaches, and attentive staff. The whole experience allows you to fully relax and enjoy every minute, without any worries or distractions. This is not a... More

Family of 2 adults and 3 children (2.5,5,7 years old) stayed there 4 nights. After a trip with sea-sick kids (from Singapore - would recommend you to sit outside rather than inside the ferry), we arrived to this paradise-island. Everything was well thought through with amazing design and very helpful and child-friendly staff everywhere. One of our best holidays in... More

I am very conflicted about writing this review as it is such a wonderful place I don't want the word to spread too far. However, as it is a special place, it's well deserving of praise. The travel from Singapore is made so easy with fast, expert transfers from the Bintan ferry to Nikoi Island. The staff are amazing -... More

A gem! One of those places you don't want to leave and dream about going back. What's to love: The staff, the healthy food and how exciting it was to read the menu of the day (yet they are totally open to making you whatever you want if the menu doesn't suit...I wanted lots of fish and this was never...

After a year of medical treatments for myself, Nikoi Island was indeed exactly what the Doctor would have ordered if it had been available on prescription! We arrived via the ferry from Singapore and then car across the Island and the speed boat to Nikoi. The total journey was roughly about 3 hours. All transfers were fine with no issues... More

Bring books to read and your swimmers, and let the island work its magic. Yes, there are activities, but nothing you really need to do, only if you have a mild urge to do it. There is swimming, kayaking, snorkelling, sailing, etc. etc. but the most important activity may be contemplating the sea while having a glass of iced tea,... More
