Eco-friendly luxury on a serene private island in Indonesia - just 2 hours from Singapore

Nikoi Island is barefoot luxury writ large; this laid-back, secluded getaway offers an abundance of pristine natural wonders and wildlife encounters. Ringed with white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and coral reefs, and blessed with a rainforest teeming with birds, this tiny island offers the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience.

Situated just off Bintan Island, and a degree north of the equator, Nikoi Island is so unspoilt you feel you've rented the whole thing for yourself. The only buildings on the island are the resort's 15 beautiful Indonesian beach houses, each with a stunning seafront location and perfect sunset view. Affordable and far from pretentious, the resort has 2 pools, affable staff and eco-friendly principles (solar-powered hot water, sustainable buildings, sea turtle conservation). The clientèle are honeymooners, young couples or families whose kids can enjoy treasure hunts, pirate adventures and nature trails. You'll not be short of things to do - snorkelling, island hopping, fishing, sailing, beachcombing, wildlife spotting - or just reclining on a daybed, cocktail in hand.

A scattering of 15 Zen-like stilted wooden beach houses, each with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms, lines the western coast. They're generously spread across 5 hectares - and the island's remaining 10 hectares are a wildlife sanctuary - so the place doesn't feel overly crowded (though we fear it would if more were built).

One bedroom Villa

One bedroom beach houses have over 100sqm of floor space. Our standard one bedroom has two bathrooms, one ensuite and one on ground level. Four of our one bedroom houses have a small bunk room downstairs suitable for two children, making them ideal for a family of 4. These beach houses only have one bathroom.

Two bedroom Villa

The 140sqm two bedroom beach houses boast separate bedrooms linked by elevated wooden walkways. They also have an additional small bunkroom suitable for a maid or two children. The second bedroom has twin beds and extra beds can be added on request. The twin beds cannot be made up as a king sized bed. One of our two bedroom houses has two master bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms. This is best suited for two couples to share and there is no bunk room in this beach house.

Three bedroom Villa

For those with large or extended families we have a three bedroom beach house with 170sqm of floor space. The second and third bedrooms are twin rooms. The beds in the second and third bedroom cannot be made up as a king sized bed. Extra beds can be added on request. All three bedrooms are detached from the master bedroom. There are three bathrooms but only one has hot water.

Meals are created using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients; menus change on a day-to-day basis. Guests get 3 meals a day (it's a lot of food), which are taken at a communal table in the open-sided, sand-floor restaurant at the beachfront clubhouse. If you want more privacy, secluded picnics can be arranged on the beach or on a neighbouring deserted island.

Although not exactly fine dining, the resort serves up tasty simple fare in generous portions. The service is slick and attentive. The highlight of our stay was a seafood lunch: generous portions of juicy baked snapper, steamed bok choi with soy and garlic, fresh Niçoise salad and vivid saffron rice, followed by a warm, rich chocolate torte.

Dinner was a choice of tender steak or freshly caught fish with a rustic tomato pasta, a selection of stir-fried or steamed vegetables, and a melt-in-the-mouth dessert - ours was an apple tart. Breakfasts are quite basic - tropical fruit, cereal, and eggs with toast - but are still satisfying.

Cocktails at Nikoi are the order of the day - and priced very reasonably for a private island. Yogi (the famed bar manager) has an inventive streak and dishes up his own tried and tested cocktails alongside regular classics. The favourite - his ‘Yogicolada’ - was creamy (fresh coconut cream) and fruity with a nice kick. All drinks can be served in any of the 3 bars, or taken back to your villa.

  • Watersports are the order of the day here. Swimming, sailing, island hopping, windsurfing, diving, kayaking, fishing - you name it, you can do it.
  • The snorkelling around Nikoi is first rate thanks to its powder-white beaches and clear waters - the sea is teeming with little Nemos. Wreck diving can be arranged with advance notice. In general it's best to go diving and snorkelling between March and November.
  • Zone out on your daybed with a good book, or indulge in a deep-tissue Balinese massage in your sala.
  • Soak up the natural attractions: we saw lizards, tropical butterflies, golden orb spiders and geckos during our stay; dolphins can also be spotted.
  • Sea turtles nest on the beach from March to September. The resort runs a conservation programme and guests can sometimes help release hatchlings into the surf.
  • Take a dip in one of the 2 swimming pools located to the right of the villas. The pool bar and loungers overlooking the crisp ocean are perfect for sundowners. Beach volleyball and boules are available.
  • Visit neighbouring Bintan or other islands for mountain biking, adventure trekking or rock climbing - Nikoi teams up with a local group to arrange these.
  • Keen bird lovers should look out for the resident white bellied eagle on the hill. Bright yellow golden orioles and stork billed kingfishers can occasionally be spotted in the mangroves.
  • Send the kids off on an island adventure with the informally run Kids Club. We saw the staff taking children on treasure hunts, climbing the granite boulders, going on nature trails and searching rock pools with gusto.
  • Beachcombers will love the shells on the strand
  • Communal areas: The clubhouse contains sitting areas with satellite TV, the lobby and reception, and a cinema area. Outside are natural gardens with walkways through the banyan trees, and ocean-facing terraces lined with loungers.
  • Internet Access: WiFi in the public areas and beach houses - the first hour of access is free but if you want faster access or for longer periods then charges apply.
  • Swimming Pool: There are 2 beachfront swimming pools, with tropical bars edged into a jungle canopy.
  • Spa Treatments: Massages can be arranged, and each beach house has a private massage sala.
  • Recreational: Watersports equipment is available for guests to use, and there are magazines, books and board games to borrow. The resort has boules, a volleyball net, and 2 tennis courts (which are often also used for croquet). Plus staff can arrange a host of land- and water-based activities.
  • Weddings and Celebrations: Idyllic weddings can be arranged.
  • Meetings/Functions: Not suitable.
  • Disabled Access: None.
  • Pets: Not accepted.
  • Languages Spoken: English.
