The islands of Indonesia sit to the south of the main portion of Asia, closer to Australia than they are to China or Japan. Incredibly, Indonesia contains more than 17,000 islands and only 922 of them are inhabited. If you live in a city and you feel as though there is nowhere left in this crowded world where you can go and get away from people, you may want to consider visiting Indonesia. These islands are among the spots left on earth where you can feel as though you’ve claimed your own little corner of the planet.
Nikoi is one of these tiny spots in Indonesia; it’s a private island that is reached by taking about a 2-hour ferry ride from Singapore. The main, and only, attraction on the island of Nikoi is a 15-suite hotel built out of two-story suites on stilts, located right on the beach. This real-life version of “Swiss Family Robinson” truly is the ultimate getaway. The island will accommodate a maximum of 60 guests in the 15 suites. Each suite has a king-sized bed that has mosquito nets, a wooden decked lounge with daybeds and a bar, a private balcony that looks down onto the beach, and a bathroom with an outdoor, open air shower. Everything you need in your own private paradise is right there at the resort, including two swimming pools, a restaurant and four different bars. You can spend your days on the beach beneath your suite, snorkeling around the coral reefs or exploring the island’s lush rainforest. Nikoi is an unforgettable vacation spot that you’ll never want to leave.
