Maldives, one of the world’s most famous lagoons, has become a luxurious getaway for the rich & the famous. It attracts many visitors annually due to its seclusion, sun, sand and sea. Maldives is not a cheap tropical destination. So you ask, where can you find the ideal tropical holiday destination, comparable to Maldives, without spending a fortune?

Your answer is in the Province of Riau Islands. Nikoi Island is one of the best Indonesian Hidden Gems. It is a 15 hectare island, located 8 km off the coast of Bintan and 2 hours away from Singapore. Nikoi offers white sandy beaches, azure blue water, dazzling underwater coral reefs and a private holiday experience on a remote tropical island. There are 15 eco-friendly beach villas on the island that are going to keep you relax & spoiled.

Untouched tropical rainforests cover most part of the island, which has maintained its pristine condition. Nikoi is a safe sanctuary to a diverse population of local birds, which you can freely observe. Enjoy other activities on the island as you wish. For instance, go for a picnic on a nearby deserted island, sailing and snorkeling in the warm tropical sea or just relaxing on the beach. The friendly staffs of Nikoi Island are always ready to assist you.

Nikoi Island is truly an Indonesian Hidden Gem.
