Reviewed 30 December 2013

We wondered if it could be as good as other reviewers indicated - especially because we were a group of 3 families ranging in age from 1 to 85 and were spending Christmas on the Island and the risk of dodgy monsoonal weather was high. Nikoi is that good. We all loved it. Special thanks to Gugun who was funny,...

My family spent 4 days there. We had very high expectations given all the reviews and considering how difficult it was to book it. Unfortunately we forgot to consider the season in our eagerness. The trip started off rough - literally - as the sea was so windy that 1/3 of the people on the Singapore - Bintan ferry was...

Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that you had bad weather during your stay. It is unusual to have more than one bad day of weather on Nikoi. At our location the weather even during the monsoon season is typically quite mild with the wind rarely getting over 15 knots. As you say the wind drops from around March...

My two young sons, husband and I had the most amazing vacation at Nikoi this past week. We cannot wait to return, and want to share it with all of our loved ones. It is perfect in it's simplicity and it is a place to go if you need to really get away. It is pure heaven. I cannot say...

We finally visited Nikoi after much contemplations as were worried about no aircon, no TV, no internet etc. Our worries were so unfounded coz all 4 kids had a splendid time being barefooted almost throughout their stay in Nikoi, they weren't even fussed about the crawlies, flies etc. Service is impeccable from time of reservations with my endless queries which...

Thanks for your very kind review. Great to read that you didn't miss the Aircon or TV and that your kids loved not wearing shoes and were happily entertained in the kids club. I suspect the restaurant staff member that entertained your daughter is Yansen. I am sure all of our staff will be very pleased to read your kind...

Our 1st visit to Nikoi Island with our 3 year old boy. Everything is perfect (wonderful staff) except the following: 1) Food@SGD$90/pax/day for only 3 meals can definitely be enhanced. No doubt it is fresh but I would think soft drinks & juices should be included during all meals, and maybe an all day food/snack menu? 2) there is no...

Thanks for your kind review. If I may I will just briefly comment on the areas that you felt could be improved. 1. Food - our daily board is S$90++ for three meals. Lunch and dinner are 3 courses. It also includes most activities including kids club, tennis, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing. We also do not charge for bar snacks,...

We were impressed with the VIP treatment the moment we stepped off the ferry at Bintan. They whisked us away to the VIP area while the staff processed our passport. Then we were taken by private car to the terminal where it's a short boat ride to the island. We loved that there was no air conditioning, the villas were...

Thanks very much for your kind review. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. We do offer free wifi it is just that it is limited to one hour per day. The reason we charge after one hour is because we have limited bandwidth (our service provider cannot offer us any more) and we have found that is the only...
