We were the guests of my daughter and son in law for a three night visit to Nikoi. This proved to be one of the experiences of a lifetime. It is an excellent, intimate resort, currently with just 15 but soon rising to 18 'huts'. The facilities are superb, the staff outstanding (particular thanks to Kirstie) and the food delicious. Your cabin has no external doors or windows and you sleep under a mosquito net to the sound of the sea lapping at your feet about thirty yards away. It is hot, but that tones down to a mellow warmth as the sun disappears and the cocktails take their toll. A wonderful experience

As the sound of sweeping waves create a beautiful but melancholy surrounding it’s easy to get carried away into a world,a world of one’s own thoughts,scattered but with a promise to have a desired ending. as I sit in the porch of our log house in a distant island of Riau archipelago I wish it was a bit sunny to drive away one’s mind from all odd thoughts but alas it’s been pouring since yesterday night and drizzling now creating that perfect moment of coveted melancholy. Nikoi Island is a 15 hectare private island situated about 8 kilometers east of popular tourist destination Bintan in Indonesia. There’s lot to do if you can catch up with high tide,snorkeling,kayaking and surfing to name a few.For those who are not adventurous enough can just take the round the island walk amidst mangroves. As the sun sets behind the horizon one can just while away on the beach listening to distant sound of waves crashing by the beach as lights pop up in distant islands. It’s serene and very infectious to watch the clouds as they change colour finally darkness devouring the entire surroundings as you can retire to the dining area lit up with soft light lanterns maintaining the mesmerizing feeling or indulge in roasting marshmallows stuck up at the tip of a long stick in the bonfire that as the staff says lit up every evening ‘if the weather is generous’ As the rain stopped this morning and the rainbow lit up the horizon promising a beautiful sunny day ahead we were off our cozy couch on the beach to try snorkeling. The experience that awaits one once you have fought with the initial phase of fear as you go deep inside the ocean is just amazing.It’s so beautiful down under,a different world of sea urchins,clams and fishes of all sizes and colors.Maybe it’s just the beginning as we want to explore more with deep sea diving but must say a very good start.

Recently stayed for four nights with our two kids, 6yo and 4yo. Staff are wonderful and everything is well maintained. Kids had a great time and it was especially nice to let them run around and play without us shadowing them all the time. There are a lot of families so for couples wishing for quiet time I'd definitely recommend Cempedak (which we have also been to and loved). The only thing that took a big shine off our stay were the fishing boats that moor off the beach. With 'open living' you may feel visually exposed at night time. Their engines started at 6am each morning (due to daylight you may not sleep much longer anyway) but the real kicker was the one night with the engines put-putting from around 3.30 am. We will be back but this was almost a deal-breaker. I presume this a source of annoyance for more guests who don't report it and equally for the resort owners whose hands must be tied otherwise, surely, something would be done about it, to maintain the islands' sense of privacy, security and peacefulness.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and are very sorry to hear that you found the fishing boats annoying. These boats occasionally anchor off the island during certain seasons and sometimes leave the island for fishing grounds further afield early in the morning and this can be annoying. They are typically not fishing around the island but rather heading off to fishing grounds further away. Please accept our apologies for the annoyance that this caused. We do a lot of work with the local community and have very good relations with them and have been encouraging them to be mindful of our guests and ask that they avoid using their engines early in the morning. We are also trying to encourage them to install mufflers on their boats or to use alternative anchorages. We do hope to welcome you back again to either Nikoi or Cempedak soon.

Well, this place was absolute heaven on earth, such a unique experience. From the moment we arrived, we were well taken care of by the team. There are plenty of activities and when you're not busy doing those, sit back and enjoy the views! Our son also loved the kids club. 100% recommend!
