Beautiful island. Great food and services from the staffs. We enjoyed ourselves there. The boys enjoyed the woodcrafts created by the staffs! Would love to go back again. Hope they can give discount for return customers will be a bonus. ;)

The private island was fantastic. From the minute you arrive in Bintan, the entire process is seamless. From the drive across the island to the private jetty to the friendly staff upon arrive. There is nothing overlooked. Wonderful time.

Simply Paradise! I have been very lucky and gone on many holidays in Asia. This has got to be one of the best! Unfourtanley, we only had three nights there, due to my work. However, those three nights were simply paradise. A stunning sea. Very blue. The view from your villa is flawless. Amazing. Even though getting into the sea...

Fantastic place. This is my 5th visit to this admiring islands outside Bintan. Easy to get there by ferry from Singapore, Nikoi crew picked us up at the Bintan side and drove us safely to the boat heading for Nikoi. Nikoi Island is a small island with only one resort. Perfect for relaxing, they have kayaks, small sailboats, snorkeling gear...

Thanks for taking the time to post your review. We are a little surprised by your comment about the coffee so we have undertaken a review of the coffee served and a few improvements so hopefully it will now be better. Coffee in the restaurant is freshly ground and served in plungers whereas our espresso coffees are a single origin...

This place is great. Food was fab, staff helpful and attentive, kids club was brilliant. Overall, nothing to fault. The only letdown (and this was partly may fault, although the website could have been more helpful) is that snorkelling is seasonal. We were there in February and the sea was too rough and choppy to do any snorkelling and see...

Thanks for your lovely review. I am sorry that you were out of season for snorkelling. February is a better month for sailors and windsurfers. There are information sheets available on our website about both snorkeling and the weather - I am only sorry you did not see these at the time you booked.

Before booking Nikoi Island, we had many questions since we were coming from far away (California). We were contemplating between Nikoi and another near by Island resort and Nikoi's prompt response and attention to detail helped us make the right choice. From the pick up at the ferry to the end, the service was exceptional. The staff makes a real...

A truly magical island escape, so close to Singapore yet it feels so far away from the busy life of every big Asian city. If you are after a getaway holiday to re-connect with family and beach life, Nikoi island is perfect. There are just 15 beach houses which are all beach front. The food is amazing, and so very...

Nikoi is the most fabulous resort I have ever tried. You are on a "private" island, with only 15 villas. The service is fabulous with such kind people, extremely friendly. They make you feel at home. The service is amazing, super personalized. The food is fabulous with different breakfast everyday. The architecture and the design are fantastic, made with natural...

I took all my family there, 8 of us. Transportation: -good. From Singapore you need to take the ferry to Bintan. Then a car is waiting for you to take you on a 45min ride to the other side of the island. If you have young kids this may be a bit of a pain as the road is full...
