My partner and I were lucky enough to stay at the Joyo resort last week and it was perfect paradise!! The island was so beautiful (it rained a bit and even in the rain it was still perfect) and so well maintained. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place. Aside from all the fun activities (swimming, snorkeling, fishing, eating) the best thing for us were the amazing staff – Valentino in particular. They did everything to make you feel welcome and special, produced some incredible meals and were generally great to be around. They set-up a beach side dinner for us as a surprise and so much effort was put in. We will really remember them all forever! Thank you Joyo from Amy and Ryan – we will definitely come back one day 

Room tip: All rooms are the same and as nice as each other!

Spent a few days here this week. What an amazing experience. The place is divine and the staff could not have been lovelier. Food is excellent, as are the pool facilities etc. Cannot recommend highly enough!

This place is just amazing!!!

We have just spent 2 weeks on the island... 22 people ranging from 2-70yrs old for a 70th and 40th bday party. We had the whole island to ourselves.

We are a big group of friends and family who like to have fun, party and of course relax! The island was absolutely spectacular.

William, Anton and the rest of the people on the island are more like a family than staff. So helpful, happy, caring, loving and desperate for you to have the best experience ever. I can’t quite tell you how amazing the whole team on the island are! Beautiful, happy people.

It was a long trip from the UK but worth every minute of travel. We all had very high expectations, everyone of us had them all totally exceeded. I was extremely worried about sending them money by bank transfer before we went however I shouldn’t have worried, they are so relaxed and you can trust them. They are just wonderful people.

Anton and William helped us create party nights, theme nights and in fact, anything is possible. I have never ever known service like it.

The rooms are amazing, the island itself is so authentic, every detail including all the furniture is so cleverly thought through. The pool is beautiful, diving board is the best we’ve ever seen!

We went snorkelling off the beach, they took us out on the boat as well, we even went to another island to do some snorkelling in different areas. We went fishing and we also did a sunset cruise, absolutely stunning. This was all arranged for us. We also had England v Indonesia football matches, so much fun when we had the guests versus the island team.

The food is good, we have VERY fussy children and if you are clear about what you want they will cater for your needs, nothing is too much trouble.

There is so much to do on the island. We ran, kayak’d, SUP’d, walked and swam around the island. We had dinner in different places every evening. The locations just stunning. Fireworks are epic and highly recommended when you have dinner on the beach!

We organised table tennis, darts, beach volley ball and pool competitions! We also had lots of rest, massage and chill time.

It was the perfect holiday, I can not recommend it enough.

Whatever you want to do, if it’s be active, party, do nothing or just chill, this island is the place for you..

Thank you again William, Anton and the whole team, we love you all. We had the best time and I hope we can come again soon...

Had the island privately for a long weekend. Just delightful. Service is very low key and behind the scenes but it kind of works here as everything is rustic and simple. Rooms are huge and lovely not having ac. Plenty to do for a few days and a great reef, coral and paddle boarding. Food was pretty good but we had to bring our own wine.

AMAZING!!! We(me, my wife and daughter-13 yo) spent 5 magical days in Pulau Joyo in the Christmas Period. The place is really like Robinson Crusoe experience. The food variety that they are trying to deliver every single day is awesome. One day you have chicken, fish, beef, lamb, etc. You go there and you feel part of the family. You are greeted by name, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They are really friendly and this is the 2nd place in the world where I can see people really interested and happy doing their job. The location is very remote and if you travel from Singapore is the following. Boat to Bintan, then car(arranged by the resort) for around 1 hour and then speedboat journey for about 20 min...The beach is very white and blue waters..in the afternoon however is a low tide, so at that time you can enjoy the beautiful view. Since is a tropical island expect flies, mosquitos, and obviously the big lizards enjoying the resort too. Wifi in the houses in inconsistent so please keep that in mind. Next to the pool however the connection is quite good. For us was a great vacation away from TV, phones, mails, etc. and I thoroughly enjoy it. Kudos to the whole team there and see you soon :)
