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

Thanks for your delightful review. We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the food, the service and all of the activities. Also it is great to hear the kitchen was able to handle your dairy intolerance. This is an aspect that our kitchen prides itself on. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again some day....

Been 5 years since my last visit and Nikoi has improved to become outstanding. Great service, the kids club team are brilliant as are Billy and Rahim in the restaurant. The food was almost too good, I cleared my plate every meal. If you are fussy and need air conditioning this isn't the place for you, the rooms are all... More

Wow. Just spent 4 nights on this beautiful island. From the moment we were met at Bintan ferry terminal our holiday began. We were whisked away by private car to the other side of the island to catch another boat to Nikoi. It really is like being on a castaway island complete with wooden open air huts with grass roofs...

What can I say. Everything said here in trip advisor is spot on about Nikoi . Outstanding service, food and a genuine sense of guest care by all staff. Great place to relax with excellent food. Pool area and rain forest walk really made it as well .Will be back for sure.

We recently visited Nikoi Island and had a fantastic time. The 3 most outstanding things were 1 ) the staff - genuinely good people who care. Warm smiles, kind, intuitive but super professional. 2) the food - we have been to a few islands and food is often the compromise. Not at Nikoi. One menu but that is a good... More

Fabulous spacious accommodation..open and tropical. Food spectacular and people soooo kind. There is a genuineness about Nikoi that I have not found at any other holiday place. Children (ranging from 15.13,9) absolutely loved it…they are missing it already. We will be back.

We Love the concept of the Island. From the moment you step on the island to the moment you leave the island, you feel like you are visiting the private island of your friends.

Thanks for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed the concept. Also great that you were able to see a turtle laying eggs - always very exciting. It is always tremendous having guests who are equally as passionate and interested about the natural world. Thanks again for taking the time to post your review. More

Our 6th, 7th or 8th time to Nikoi so we can clearly be accused of bias. But for my family and I this place is a little piece of heaven. Three hours from Singapore with no flying involved. The staff make the place even though the setting is perfect. They are friendly, playful, attentive and genuinely fun loving......this is a... More

Thanks for your very kind review. It is always great to welcome back repeat visitors so we do greatly appreciate your business.
