We spent three days on Nikoi Island in March. Everything, absolutely everything about Nikoi is perfect! From start to finish, everything amazed! Perfect location, flawless weather, sandy beach, crystal clear water, beautiful airy beach houses, excellent and plentiful food!, friendly and gracious staff, plenty of peace and quiet, just right! We can't wait to be there again in June! Peter... More

The staff at Nikoi are so attentive and welcoming. You have very special people welcoming your guests that take a genuine interest and make conversation fun. Special thanks to the very intelligent and fun Salena and #7 on BLD running a tight ship at the dining room. Go team!

Thanks for your very kind review and your particularly kind comments about our staff. Sorry about the noise from the fishing boats. It is unusual that they would run their engines at night so not sure why this was the case. We do ask them to be quiet but there is not a lot we can do. They will occasionally... More

We spent three wonderful nights on Nikoi Island and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. It was heaven. If you read the other reviews they will tell you about the great rooms, wonderful food and super staff. We would definitely recommend it to people to go and stay and would love to come back ourselves. I was surprised to... More

Of the dozens of hotels I have reviewed I rarely ever give a perfect score. This time is an exception. I purchased the room months in advance and was not disappointed. OK, there is no a/c, no frig, and no flat screen TV or phone. But here, who needs them. If you buy the meal package everything is basically covered... More

I visited Nikoi with 3 globetrotting girlfriends - among the 4 of us, we've been pretty much everywhere - all of us agreed that it was one of the most spectacular places we had ever been. The natural beauty is really stunning and the elegant simplicity of the 'huts' as we called them is so relaxing. We originally had booked... More

First, we had a wonderful 3 days/2 nights on Nikoi and will most definitely return. It is a special place and we felt very welcomed by the friendly staff.

Yes, Nikoi Island is an expensive place, which is almost fully booked all through the year and certainly takes longer to get to than the other resorts at Bintan. Now that we have got the drawbacks of the place out of the way, lets move to the positive side, which is everything else! We couldn't believe our luck when we... More

My husband and I recently spent three nights on Nikoi, our second visit in a year. Four words sum up our thoughts about the visit - "We will be back!" Nikoi took our breath away as much as it did the first time round. The lovely white sand, delicious food, cool air - everything made for a wonderful relaxing experience.... More

Thank you for your very kind review and your thoughtful suggestions. I have asked our housekeeping department to ensure the bottle stops are clean and my apologies for this.

The whole Nikoi experience from start to finish was smooth and efficient. From the land transfer;to the next boat to the island. The sea was choppier than expected which made the normal 15 minute crossing slightly longer. The principles of sustainability and eco-friendliness are not lost in the hotels desire to provide a luxurious tropical island break. The villas are... More
