Before booking Nikoi Island, we had many questions since we were coming from far away (California). We were contemplating between Nikoi and another near by Island resort and Nikoi's prompt response and attention to detail helped us make the right choice. From the pick up at the ferry to the end, the service was exceptional. The staff makes a real...

A truly magical island escape, so close to Singapore yet it feels so far away from the busy life of every big Asian city. If you are after a getaway holiday to re-connect with family and beach life, Nikoi island is perfect. There are just 15 beach houses which are all beach front. The food is amazing, and so very...

Nikoi is the most fabulous resort I have ever tried. You are on a "private" island, with only 15 villas. The service is fabulous with such kind people, extremely friendly. They make you feel at home. The service is amazing, super personalized. The food is fabulous with different breakfast everyday. The architecture and the design are fantastic, made with natural...

I took all my family there, 8 of us. Transportation: -good. From Singapore you need to take the ferry to Bintan. Then a car is waiting for you to take you on a 45min ride to the other side of the island. If you have young kids this may be a bit of a pain as the road is full...

Nikoi Island is an ambitious idea, very cleverly realised. More importantly, it made for a great weekend break. Let's get the fly in the ointment out of the way first: there's no getting around the fact that it's a trek to get to. The process is: get to Tanah Merah ferry terminal, out past the airport; clear immigration and security;...

Thanks very much for your delightful and very detailed review. The journey is indeed a long one for a weekend which is why we would recommend at least 3 nights. We do not believe you can get to any other private islands or anywhere else with a good beach in less time from Singapore. About half of our guests come...

Nikoi is a very peaceful place and and - with ample space - it was also very privat - no queuing for food or water toys. We made good use of most facilities. Sailboats were in good order, the spa was excellent, the food was generally great - I loved the small portions (staff always asked if you wanted seconds)...

Yes, yes...we all know how wonderful the Maldives are... the Turks and Caicos and every 6 star resort with a beautiful beach and crystal-clear water, whilst trying to be “eco-barefoot-luxurious” yet “uber-chic”. Yet few of these places have the charm of Nikoi. Nikoi does not try to be something that it is not. It is not a “supermodel” with impeccable...

We spent our christmas holiday on Nikoi and the whole family loved it from the second we arrived. It is a gorgeous island and the service is just perfect. The kids club is really good at doing a lot in the nature. We will return as soon as possible!
