All of Nikoi’s staff except for the head of Marine Conservation are Indonesian. In total Nikoi employs over 150 employees and with typically no more than 50 guests on the island there is always a good number of staff to look after guests. Many of our staff started with us during the building phase so they have a true affinity with the place.
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.
