With only a handful of bungalows on this tiny, pristine island, you are guaranteed blissful serenity. Everything is done with simplicity and style in a way that connects you with the local culture. The staff are absolutely wonderful and will do anything for you and always with a smile. The bungalows are spacious with plentiful daybeds and fans (in lieu... More

I can’t do this island justice! As a group of 12 adults and 7 kids this was the perfect holiday for us. The island itself is magical, big enough to provide privacy when you want it and small enough to have a great party as well. The grounds are beautiful, tropical and great for kids to explore. The beaches are... More

Everything here is in island time, your time. Leave modern life behind. No air con, so-so wifi, nothing to distract you from lazing, beach strolling, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, eating and drinking. The deep pool and dive board, both fabulous. The wine list is extremely limited so do bring a special bottle each. The beers and spirits are fairly priced given... More

We spent an Idyllic weekend on Joyo. The Island is a naturally beautiful little gem. We stayed in Beach Palace 2. All the accommodation is vast and the details in the rooms, such as the traditionally carved wooden doors, are wonderful. It's a very easy journey from Singapore via Ferry (which is cold, take a jumper but an interesting journey... More

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
