Nearly all of Nikoi’s 150+ employees are Indonesian. Typically there are no more than 50 guests on the island meaning there are always ample staff on hand. Many of these same staff started with us during the building phase and so have a true affinity with the place they helped to create.

We have worked hard to create a relaxed and convivial work ethic that breaks away from the traditional hotel model. Our goal has been to have healthy and happy employees who take pride in their jobs. We encourage them to learn new skills and many of our staff have moved from back of house roles to front of house ones. This has been rewarding for all of us involved.
