We stayed 3 nights with our boys (5 and 8). We live in Singapore and the trip was very easy and fast. Left Singapore in the morning and arrived before lunch. The acomodation - non air con, non - TV balinese style house was great. Beautifully designed, right at the beach, with lots of natural ventilation. The kids slept on...

We have had a wonderful few days there; it was paradise and we were unwinding and relaxing from the moment we were greeted so warmly and ambled with the charming host to reception. The complete lack of aircon was absolutely fine: sleeping with an overhead fan, listening to the gentle sounds of the sea was magical. However might I suggest...

Thanks for your kind review. It is particularly pleasing to hear you enjoyed the meals so much. There is supposed to be a room guide in each of the master bedrooms but I will ask our staff to re-check this. It may have been that this was not pointed out to you and my apologies if that was the case....

We were looking for a side-trip from Singapore that offered something a little bit different. From the moment we stepped off the ferry in Bin Tan, the experience was fantastic. Fast-tracked through immigration then into a private car to the jetty for the boat to Nikoi. On arrival in Nikoi island, all of the expectations we had prior to the...

This was simply fantastic, maldives for a fraction of the price, quiet, peaceful, beautiful and very well thought through. This is a small island with 15 houses only, food is excellent, not buffet- so great quality and varied. we had a great time and will definately be returning.

“Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful, Free yourself from the complexities of your life, simplicity and happiness awaits you at Nikoi.” Although you go back to basics, we were never pampered like this before in our lives!

We read many of the good reports Nikoi Island got before we booked it and so we did expect that it would be nice there. But wow, it's just fantastic. The beach house we stayed in was just like in a Robinson Crusoe Movie. And the staff was very nice too. The waiters Hardy and Raheem and the girl, who's...

Reviewed 2 October 2013

Islands are intriguing and so is Nikoi Island with its shockingly white powdery soft sand, crystal clear sea and lush greenery. On this tropical island, one has to forget about busyness of work and learn to let go of the need for tv, air-con, phones, PCs, hair dryers, fridge (though icebox is provided), internet (limited access). Instead, my girlfriends and...

I don't need to say much - I cannot fault Nikoi. Amazing staff. Amazing location. Great food and wonderful for children of all ages. The staff accommodated all our needs - whether early dining for our little one or bringing water to us on beaches off the main stretch. My only small ask would be to include wifi in the...

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. With regard to WiFi we previously provided free access but found that we simply could not buy enough bandwidth from our service provider to provide unlimited access to all. As a result we have found that the only way to regulate is to charge. We currently provide...

If visiting Nikoi ensure you read the website thoroughly and know what you are going for and are going to experience. Having read some of the other tripadvisor reviews on here of Nikoi, they clearly did not read the easily accesible website! If you are after a cheap tacky all inclusive, fake stay then stay elsewhere in Bintan. However I...

I would concur with everything that many people have already stated - it is a great, relaxing place. However, its real differentiating factor is the quality of its staff and its food. The staff are practically unique in South East Asia; they actually listen and provide great service, and are friendly and polite without ever becoming intrusive. The food is...
