Our plan was to develop a private island, not a resort. A place, where simple yet inspiring architecture, good food and personal service come together in a spectacular natural setting.
Accommodation on Nikoi is limited to 15 beachfront two-storey beach houses. Privacy is guaranteed with all accommodation generously spaced out over a 5 hectare site on the western side of the island. The remaining 10 hectares have be reserved as a sanctuary to ensure that the environmental impact is minimal and that there are plenty of secluded and tranquil places to explore. 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 maximise water views and catch cooling sea breezes. The 140sqm two-bedroom beach houses boast separate bedrooms linked by elevated wooden walkways.
For those with larger families or extended families we have a three-bedroom beach house with 170sqm of floor space. Three of our two bedroom beach houses have an additional small bedroom suitable for a maid or extra children. Downstairs is the ultimate in chill out zones with an open-air deck area complete with day beds, bale and on request an icebox and well stocked bar. Our one-bedroom beach houses are of a similar layout and have over 100sqm of floor space. The houses are all spread along a 500m beach so there is plenty of privacy.
Robinson Crusoe-inspired driftwood beach houses all have direct access to perfect white sandy beaches.
The houses are made with local driftwood and ‘alang alang’ grass roofs creating ecofriendly accommodation that is spacious and stylish.
15 beach houses – a total of 21 rooms as some houses have two or three rooms to accommodate families.

Two 30ft long slabs of driftwood were cut, polished and transformed into banquet tables with the ability to seat up to 24 guests in each of the island’s two dining rooms.
Soft white sand floors and open air rooms with concertina glass doors combine to make the dining rooms both simple and chic. The promise of long lazy lunches and nights of fine food and wine by the ocean awaits.
There are three bar areas on the island, each with its own character providing island cocktails, spirits, local and imported beers and a range of fine wines.
