Together with my family I stayed at nikoi Island for 4 nights in room 6. We where traveling from Singapore so we took the ferry to Bintan. Having first class tickets is a very good idea! You can check in your bag and get acses to the lounge where you get driven to the ferry, very comfortable! The staff is...

A really special place, to experience a touch more rustic island life but with the luxury of lovely design, good service and great food. Rooms are series of private wooden houses on stilts - which means you fall asleep to the sound of the sea and wake to an amazing view - but also means that if you don't like...

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. It is particularly pleasing to read your comments about the quality of the food. I am sorry to hear you encountered some tar on the beaches. This fortunately is not a common occurrence and our staff do their best to clean the beaches every day. Thanks for taking the time to post...

Spent 2 days on this very relaxing island. Definitely could have spent a lot more time here. It takes a little effort to get here, so if one can stay longer, it would definitely be worthwhile. From the time we met with the driver when we got the Bintan Island, to the time we left, service was friendly and efficient....

Thanks for your review. I have followed up with our staff about the lack of hot water. Although we operate a solar hot water systems we have not had any issues with any of the systems so I am surprised by your comments. Not sure if you mentioned it to our staff but it is something that can usually be...

Lovely beaches , great for kids to learn snorkelling . Rugged kids club with activities like tree climbing. Nights were cool but afternoons were rather hot and humid . Would recommend to take the earlier ferry back to singapore rather than the 1730 ferry as you'll need to check out of the rooms by 1100. We had problems with our...

We shared accommodation with our son, daughter in law and grandchildren. It was excellent. The food was delicious, set menus but changes could be made if necessary. Plenty for our 5 year old granddaughter to do. Transfer in two cars from Bintan port was smooth and timely. Staff friendly and helpful. Throughly recommended for a few days' stay.

Nikoi island is a unique holiday destination. The location and surroundings are stunning. Although the island was fully booked when we visited, it never felt crowded. Apart from the early to mid morning, the main beach was mostly deserted, this I think was probably due to the high temperature. We found the north facing pool area was cooled by a...

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay so much. Our staff that you have mentioned will be thrilled to read your comments. It would be difficult for us to offer half board option as it would encourage guests to keep food in their rooms which can attract insects. Our kitchen team would be always happy to prepare a lighter...

We went as a group of 5 and chose to stay at the one and only 3 bedroom unit. The first unit was the only one with the attached bathroom and double bed, perfect for the married couple in our group. The second unit had twin beds and the bathroom outside, but linked by a bridge, perfect for our mother...

The private island was fantastic. From the minute you arrive in Bintan, the entire process is seamless. From the drive across the island to the private jetty to the friendly staff upon arrive. There is nothing overlooked. Wonderful time.
