Fantastic location, breathtaking views from everywhere including bed! Staff were the best. Amazingly friendly, helpful, considerate, going way above normal hospitality standards. Food was excellent. Water sports very well supervised and friendly tuition if required. We will come again when it's not school holidays. Excellent break. Thank you.

Singapore has several good options for a short getaway. Within those I would put Nikoi in the top 10 percentile. Lovely island with crystal clear and clean water around it. Everything is very well organized right from the transport logistics to the set-up on the island. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Just one note of caution. If snorkeling...

Thanks for your very kind review. It is true that for about six months of the year we have calm seas - this is when the diving and snorkeling is at it best. From July to Sept and Dec to Feb we get stronger winds and this is when it is better for sailors and windsurfers. Since your visit we...

We spent 3 nights and 4 days at Nikoi with two other Families. The entire experience was fantastic. From the logistics of getting there through the entire stay. It is everything you expect and more.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend on Nikoi. The spectacular island, delicious food and courteous staff made for a fine stay. We were kept busy with many activities - tennis, sailing and snorkelling - and managed to escape to read my book for several hours as well. There is no doubt in my mind that I'll be returning to Nikoi...

We had heard a lot about it and finally we have experienced it ourselves. Nice staff, good food, stunning views and much more made our visit something we will never forget. All the things arranged for the kids, jetty-jumping, fishing, forest hiking, treasure hunting, eating marshmallows by the bonfire or just play in the sand made our stay special for...

The natural beauty of the place drew us back for a second stay in 10 months. But the welcome and the sincerity of the staff were, like its natural beauty - unmatched. When we returned last week to Nikoi, we were greeted by not only friendly but familiar faces. They made us feel at home, right away. They remembered our...

Thank you for such a wonderful visit. Our family raved about it for months, and now we know why. Tony, Sammy, Yogi, Jordan and the entire team made us feel so welcome from the moment we stepped off the bat. Our boys didn't want leave. Only disappointment we couldn't stay longer. A very special place. Cheers Jason

Tried to call them initially to find out about the haze situation on the island, they never picked up the phone and diverted them to voice message. Finally got response via email. But absolutely refused to discuss about possible changes to our booking due to the haze. And very rudely told us that no one else has asked to make...

Thanks for the feedback. I am sorry to hear about your experience. We did get a lot of enquiries about the haze and it did mean our reservations team were slower than usual to respond even after we had added extra man power. Despite our proximity we did not experience the same haze that Singapore experienced. In fact many guests...
