We had a great time at Nikoi. The location, food and service were great. I enjoyed my massages with Emelda who had magical hands. The cocktails at the bar are just delicious. I was just bothered from my short boat trip to Nikoi due to big waves because of the Monsoon period in February and would have wanted to be... More

This tiny island just a couple of hours from Singapore (ferry, road, speed boat) was complete heaven. Very much a back to nature experience, with beautiful villas built from local materials with no curtains, tvs or wifi, it is all about sleeping to the sound of crashing waves and waking to bird song and daylight (!). It was complete paradise... More

The trip to the island takes time but it was seamless. We were met as we came out of the Bintan Ferry, were driven across Bintan island to the East Coast from where we took a fast boat to the island. The huts were very attractive, spacious, comfortable with plenty of places to sit or lie down. The design of... More

Thanks for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed the food, the service and coffee. I am sorry you felt you were under the gaze of our chef. I am a little perplexed by this as the kitchen is separate from the dining area. I can only think that you have misinterpreted their attentiveness. I have however reminded our staff... More

We had some crummy weather during our 3 nights at Nikoi, but the island is gorgeous rain or shine. The food is unbelievable--the best hotel food I've ever had. The service is warm and personal--they really seem to care about your comfort. I hope we will be back someday!

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.

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
