What a place!
The island is beautiful with its nature, lush forest, white sands, blue water and coral barrier... everything is so colorful.
The 6 wood-made villas are perfectly located in 3 different corners of the island, enjoying the view of both the tropical forest and the indonesian sea. We were in the Beach House II: interiors are well designed, the beds very comfortable and the bathroom very spacious.
The staff is great: everybody's very kind and friendly... discretely there should you need something.
The food has been a nice experience too: every meal different from the previous and each dish very well prepared.
There is no Spa, but they arranged for a masseuse to come from Bintan and stay in the island during our stay. She was very good and her massage the perfect end of a magic day in Joyo.
Yes, it took 3 hours to get there from Singapore, but the travel will surely not stop us to visit them again!

I feel a bit jealous sharing this experience, as if this charming, tiny island could stay our secret. Tired from the big, crowded hotels one can find around Asia, we were looking for some private place to spend a long weekend with our children. Lucky we were to be the only guests and it was amazing.
First, it is exclusive to occupy such a small place, surrounded by the the sea only. One can circle the island in twenty minutes, including the time for gathering seashells and enjoying the views. The staff were there whenever we needed them and discreet enough to leave us with the feeling that we were all alone on the island.
Design-wise, every corner of Joyo is joy. The open, wooden villas look like grown form the palm trees. The luxury is in aesthetics, high ceilings, wooden bathrooms, wind-blown white bed curtains, air and greenery.
Food is excellent - Asian fusion, I would say. We were entertained finding our table laid at a different place around the island every time. The pool and the common area are also very nice - something like your open-air living room with pool, full bar and occasional snacks.
The place is perfect to go with your 10-15 best friends and book it all. Also good for couples and families.

I had an extremely enjoyable experience at pulau joyo. The staff were more than helpful and the food cooked every day was delicious and hearty. The beds were clean and I especially enjoyed the hammocks placed outside our rooms. There was a communal area where everybody could gather in the day time and it sort of felt like a pool party everyday. For a weekend of relaxation it was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.
