Amazing place, stunning view and beach. Water sports available (paddle, sail, kayaking, snorkeling, etc).
Staff very kind, prepared and always willing to serve us.
Good massage available all day long (paid). Very tasty food with many options. Rooms were beautifully decorated and very well organized for us.

I spent four nights over Christmas this year with my husband and daughter and we had an amazing Christmas on the Island. Everything was fabulous. The staff from my first e-mail to when we stepped aboard the boat to leave were so professional and friendly it made the whole trip so much easier to organise and once we got there we were so well looked after and nothing was ever a problem. It's a long time since I have been so well looked after and I travel a lot. The accommodation on the Island is unique and is immaculate as is the pool which my daughter had to herself for most of our stay. The food served is delicious and very varied. The ultimate luxury, I would not hesitate to go if you get the chance.

Just the experience of being on your own private island was amazing! The service staff were just so friendly and attentive to detail. They were always available whilst being discreet and giving you the right amount of privacy. The food was very good and having dinner on the beach was a real highlight! The fireworks were very special!

Overall this is the perfect place to rent out with friends for an amazing weekend of relaxing by a beautiful pool. It is great how close to Singapore the Island is yet it is just so secluded. Although the transfer does involve a ferry, car and boat the staff make it seamless and guide you through immigration to reduce waiting times as much as possible. The massages are also amazing - although do let the staff know in advance as the therapists need to be bought to the Island.

The accommodation was very beautiful, with spacious rooms and great views. Although all huts are stunning I would recommend the Java huts - these are the most secluded and have an amazing verandah that faces out onto the beach - perfect for private sunset drinks or massages!

I do not recommend Joyo for people wanting to go snorkeling or diving. Although ok to swim in we did see a very large jellyfish with long tentacles when we were snorkeling - staff did assure us this only happened a couple of days a year and not to worry. I guess we were just unlucky. We did have a very fun Kayak to the neighbouring Island and there are stand-up paddle boards and small sail boats - so no shortage of water activities!

We loved Joyo and would highly recommend it!

Room tip: The accommodation was very beautiful, with spacious rooms and great views. Although all huts are stunning I would recommend the Java huts - these are the most secluded and have an amazing verandah that faces out onto the beach - perfect for a private sunset drinks or massages!

Thank you for your very detailed review about us. it is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much with us and its particularly thrilling to read your comments on the service quality as well as the food. it is true that only in a particular time during a year that we will have a bloom of jelly fish and it will not last more than 2 days, please be assured that our staff will notify you early in the morning if this happened (We do regular checking every morning). we hope to welcome you and your friends again some day. once again, thanks for taking the time to write this generous review for us.

Anton

My family and I stayed at Joyo for 6 nights during Christmas and had the most amazing time!
Everything about the Joyo - the location, accommodation, beauty, activities, food, service, lovely staff- absolutely exceeded our expectations.

The island is completely remote - 2 hr ferry from Singapore, 1 hr drive through the jungles of Bintan and 30min speedboat trip later, the paradise at the end is well worth the adventure journey.

I want to thank Anton and all the staff at Joyo for their wonderful hospitality and for always going over and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and relaxed.

I cannot recommend Joyo enough!!

We will surely be back! Hopefully sooner rather than later!

I don't do review- but this one has made me to come to Tripadvisor and makes an exception.

We stayed in Joyo for 3 nights. The island itself is exceptionally beautiful, clean and well maintained. I probably had one of the best Indonesian foods during my stay in Joyo which I was at first felt uneasy because it was preset.

Service quality is one of the best you can have in Asia, it was so personalized and everybody is so nice that you felt like you are at home. We stayed in many resorts and we really think Joyo is very different than the rest. they only have 6 houses which made the island always quiet, perfect for getaways. Many thanks to Anton for his endless effort to make our stay nice and comfortable. We will definitely come back!
