Nikoi Island vor der Ostküste von Bintan, Indonesien

NIKOI ISLAND – Robin Hood feeling with a touch of luxury

Nikoi is a 15-hectare island 8 km off the east coast of Bintan, Indonesia. Family-friendly Nikoi is a unique private island that prioritizes sustainability and groundbreaking design. The hotel offers 22 exceptional handcrafted rooms for a maximum of 42 guests. The barefoot island can also be rented as a whole.

Long gone are the days when a hotel can call itself eco-friendly just because guests use their towels multiple times. The fact that the bar for sustainability needs to be raised much higher is shown to us by the private island of Nikoi near Singapore. Its multi-award-winning concept is in charge of sustainable tourism and plays a pioneering role in this area. Four defining pillars form a holistic balance: sustainability, community, culture and trade.

The rooms

Villa on Nikoi at night

The American architect Peter Timmer, who has a passion for working with local materials, was commissioned to integrate the hotel complex into the breathtaking natural landscape with a sustainable design. Peter Timmer developed an architectural style that combines the typical design of solid driftwood with the grace and simplicity of modern design. An absolute design highlight is the double-arched roof, which acts like a chimney, pulling the hot air upwards and keeping the houses cool even without air conditioning.

He masterfully created a total of 15 two-storey beach houses with direct beach access and a large outdoor lounge, which extend over an area of five hectares and thus guarantee complete privacy for every guest. The remaining ten hectares of the island have been left as a nature reserve and are used by guests to explore.

The restaurants

There are two restaurants on Nikoi, one for families and one for couples or families with older children. Alternatively, guests can dine on the beach or on a private balcony. For those looking for something special, picnic baskets can be ordered and taken to one of the nearby deserted islands of your choice or to a secluded spot on Nikoi.

Some of the restaurants are supplied by the in-house farm. With an eye to the future, Nikoi has planted cashews, avocados, cocoa, nutmeg, and procured a wide range of unusual and ancestral species.

Spa & Leisure

Main pool on Nikoi

The spa is located in three large safari tents near the pool. Only natural products – such as local coconut oil – are used for treatments. And best of all, there are even massages for the kids!

Diving, stand up paddle boarding, yoga, tennis, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, hiking, spa treatments or simply lazing on the white powder beaches – there really is something for every guest here.

How to get there

The Indonesian island is located 85 km south of Singapore in the South China Sea. Nikoi is very accessible via Singapore International Airport. From Singapore, take a 55-minute ferry to Bintan, where a Nikoi representative will escort you to the Speed Boat Terminal and the island.
