I stayed here with a friend in January this year. It was amazing-- the staff are so friendly and attentive, the food delicious and plentiful. This really is a special place which you must experience at least once in your life. The beaches and bungalows are so beautiful and despite being remote and private, there is quite a lot to... More

We stayed at a very quiet time where, apart from one other couple, we were the only people staying. For us it was great. The staff were friendly, discreet, and gave good service. The food was not haute cuisine, but was delicious. The facilities were good - as described. The mosquitos were a minor battle, which we won fairly easily.... More

This is a nice private island on the east coast of Bintan. Reaching Joyo takes a few hours from Singapore (ferry, car drive, private boat), but everything is well arranged. The island is very small and convenient. There isn't much to do except water sports, but then again, relaxing and reading a good book on the beach or by the... More

Joy island is a very small island in Indonesia. Getting there from Singapore is not easy, starting with a 2 hours ferry ride, a 1 hour car ride then a 30 minutes trip by small boat. The accommodation is eco friendly, indo style open villas relying on fans to keep cool. The island is very small, taking 15 minutes to... More

Look, it is not Bora Bora or the Maldives. But what we got on this island has been a fantastic "chill out" with our friends. We have been 4 adults and 3 Kids. They loved it, we loved it. After learning the compromises regarding - no air condition - not a 5* Hotel Cuisine or Bar - a relative long... More

We took a short trip out of Singapore to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a really nice weekend away thanks to Anton, Nagato and Ayu who spared no effort to make sure that we would have a special time. All the other staff were really friendly and cheerful all the time too. The room (bungalow rather!) was huge... More

My friends and I booked the island to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. This is a true island getaway, far removed from everything else. There is a conscious integration with nature here so don't expect any air conditioning or a bug-free environment (bring your own spray though theirs is pretty potent!) and be prepared to perspire a lot especially in...

Wanted to celebrate a special birthday at a special place and Joyo did not disappoint. The journey was made easy by being met at the ferry terminal on arrival and being whisked through customs.

We knew that Pulau Joyo would be secluded. What we hadn't anticipated was that there would be more staff than guests on this idyllic tropical island! The staff were charming and nothing was too much effort. They went beyond the call of duty to make our wedding anniversary romantic and provided delicious meals in scenic settings. We paddle boarded, swam,... More
