From the outset, building and operating Nikoi & Cempedak along strict sustainable principles has been at the forefront of development plans for the islands. Not only were the resorts built entirely with local materials, labor and services but they are also operated in conjunction with the local community. Cempedak Island – opened in 2017 - is the world’s first private island resort to be constructed entirely from bamboo. Through time, many important trades and skills have been transferred to the islands' contractors and staff.

About 10 years ago, Andrew Dixon and his partners also established The Island Foundation to help improve education standards amongst local Bintan children. They have established 6 learning centers and have over 500 children registered in their programs. Through their teacher training workshops, the programs impact more than 5000 local villagers.

“We started out by putting a couple of shacks on the beach, before deciding to open it up on weekends just to cover the cost. We weren’t focused on making it a business but it became very popular.”Andrew Dixon, co-founder & director

Edenspiekermann Singapore designed and built the new websites for Nikoi & Cempedak, bringing the relaxed and personal island retreat experience to life in the browser. Next to the obvious English language version of the site, we helped to bring a Japanese language version online, supporting the rapidly growing interest in the islands from this Asian nation.
