It was as I expected. Great food - should be awarded a Michelin star! They make everything from scratch whenever possible, even the quinine for the tonic water! The ground is mostly sand or wood which I like as no unnecessary building material is used. Great service and staff!!

This is a fantastic place to visit with excellent staff, fantastic accommodation and great food – a mix of Western and local. The kids had a really good time and were made very welcome – we hardly saw them outside meal times. Nikoi is certainly a step up in quality and service compared with most of the other weekend beach... More

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to read how much you enjoyed the food, accommodation and service. We agree with you that Nikoi is not cheap but if you look at other private island experiences we believe Nikoi offers good value. Unfortunately the cost of operating on a remote island is significantly higher than on the mainland where all... More

An amazing island, at one with nature and its beauty. AMAZING food too, possibly a bit too much at lunch time... but nothing like a snooze thereafter. All in all Nikoi Island ensures that relaxation abounds, on every aspect.

We went to Nikoi with our 6 and 8 year old boy as a getaway from Singapore. Initially planned for 4 nights, but we were having such a great time that we were able to extend for 1 more night. Everything was positive during our stay: amazing food (though I would prefer more local-Indonesian food on the menu; those nights... More

Thank you very much for your very kind review. Great to hear you enjoyed the concept and the kids were kept busy in the kids club. I am surprised our watersports could not suggest places to snorkel although it can be a little tricky at this time of the year as winds from the south make it choppy around the... More

This is our second time at Nikoi island. We love this place. We came here for our honeymoon three years ago and brought our toddler (21 months) and his grandparents (read: babysitters) this time round. Place is still as lovely, and the staff are all very friendly and will make an effort to make conversation with the guests. We stayed... More

Thanks for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry to hear you had a lot of wet weather. It has in fact been very dry lately which is why the water is saltier than normal. We do provide drinking water in the rooms for making tea and coffee and recommend you do not drink the... More

Just came back from 4D3N at Nikoi. Having travelled to many beach resort, in terms of the quality of service of the staff and the food, it is on par with our Maldives trip. Always wearing a smile and going the extra mile seems to the culture of this resort. The complimentary kids club keeps our kids well entertained with... More

Maybe we had too high expectations, as so many good reviews. But we have been to many places that are better, especially when it comes to take care of the customers. We were not informed by anything while arriving and they do not have any info in the bungalows so we felt a bit just left alone. It would have... More

Thanks for your review. Whilst it is very pleasing to read your comments about the food, kids club and the accommodation it is very disappointing to read your comments about the quality of service particularly when the feedback from other guests has been so positive in this respect. I have discussed your comments extensively with our management team and would... More

Our family recently returned from a 2 night stay and can genuinely say that we had such a wonderful time we are looking at booking our next stay.

Even as a writer it's hard to know how to even begin to describe the paradise we feel that feel we have found here. Part of me doesn't want to tell others for fear that we will never get back in - the other part wants to shout it from the roof tops just how bloody glorious this island is.... More

We just spent 3D3N on Nikoi and both my husband and I have agreed it is the best weekend getaway from Singapore we have had since we've been here (and we've done a fair few!). From the moment you get off the ferry in Bintan you are on holiday, everything is sorted for you. The island is spectacular- really an... More
