Nikoi Island is a 15-hectare private island 8km off the east coast of Bintan, Indonesia. Located less than 85km from Singapore, traveling time from Tanah Merah ferry terminal is approximately two and a half hours. It is ringed with white sandy beaches and coral reefs of spectacular color and diversity and a coastline studded with magnificent white granite boulders that seemingly defy gravity. Rising to a height of 30m, the island also boasts a rain forest where colossal trees, including native Banyan trees, provide a sanctuary to a diverse population of local birds.
Handcrafted from driftwood with vernacular alang alang grass roofs, the one and two and three-bedroom stilted beach houses incorporate spacious upstairs bedrooms, bathrooms, and balconies to maximize water views and catch cooling sea breezes. There are a total of 15 beach houses (10 x one bedroom, 4 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom) with no plans to build any more. On a twin share basis, we can comfortably accommodate 42 guests but we often have 50 or more staying as there are an additional 7 bunk rooms in some of the one and two-bedroom houses and there are day beds that can be converted to additional beds. Privacy is guaranteed with all of the accommodation generously spaced out over a 5-hectare site on the western side of the island.
There are two dining rooms on Nikoi, one for families and one for couples or families with older children. Each has a 9m long dining table made from an impressive piece of driftwood. Alternatively, guests can opt to dine on the beach, one of our private balconies or in the privacy of their own beach house. Activities available to guests include serious relaxation, swimming, sailing, snorkeling, diving, massage, nature discovery and island hopping, windsurfing, standup paddleboarding, kayaking, tennis, croquet, and boule.
