Hotel of the week: Nikoi

Here’s a way to indulge your castaway fantasies “at a fraction of the cost of most rentable islands.”

Riau, Indonesia

Here’s a way to indulge your castaway fantasies “at a fraction of the cost of most rentable islands,” said Jeff Hull in Outside. “A scant 15 open-air bungalows” dot this 37-acre South China Sea island, so that even out on its “sugary” beaches, “you can see as much or as little of fellow guests as you choose.” The resort also offers fixed-rope rock climbing on 30-foot granite outcroppings and the chance to sail around the island on a catamaran. The surrounding waters feature coral gardens and the possibility of spotting sea horses gamboling about on a colorful reef.nikoi.com; bungalows from $290
