Was at Nikoi last weekend, and I must say it's an awesome 3D2N trip. The journey started with staff greeting us at the ferry terminal, assisting us with the VIP transfers. Extremely friendly driver who make a stop for us to take pictures as we were much ahead of others.
The island is beautiful and the food is good. The place looks exactly like the pictures on the Nikoi webpage. The room is unexpectedly clean, especially it's not enclosed and we were expecting crawlies, and probably sand. The only concern we had was the crawlies droppings on the floor after we return from dinner (but I guess this is unavoidable, since the hut is surrounded by nature).
We like the fact there there is no TV, phone or air-con or even some amenities. It's a great place to just relax and zonk out and of cause spend quality time with your loved ones.
We had a great time and we will definitely return.
To add on, all the staff were extremely helpful, and the service level was outstanding (from check in to meal time to ferry transfer) !
