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

Thank you Giorgia to let us discover a living gem into the South China Sea.. We have discovered a new breath, a new balance. Everything was perfect, well organized, simply and truly unforgettable. From the first step into the sand until the last awakening in our drift wood villa we experienced a real and pure life, the energy of the... More

Our family of 5 adults and 3 children spent a most relaxing and enjoyable five nights at this magical resort. Nikoi is designed in its entirety with the local ecology in mind. All the villas are constructed from thatch, stone and wood, and are open to the sea breezes and views of the ocean, which makes for restful sleep to... More

We had a wonderful and fuss free stay at Nikoi Island for 5 days. We spent most of our days lazying on the beach and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. The subwater landscape was amazing. There are lot of other great activities like canoe, standing paddling and nature walk. The pool is gorgeous but a tad far from the... More

We had a very relaxing few days at Nikoi Island. Everyone was very attentive. They provided 3 course set menu everyday and all was very delicious. If you had any allergies or didn't like certain food, they were happy to replace it. The villas had uninterrupted sea view. This is a luxury eco hotel so basically it means there is... More

A beautiful lush island, with a beautiful beach, gorgeous pool, fun bar and very laid back spirit. No need for a suitcase, a duffel will do. just throw in some flip flops, bathing suit, wrap and a sundress and/or shorts. Literally that's all you need! No shoes, no makeup, no jewelry, no phones, no tv, no problem. Throw in your... More
