We stayed here for 6 nights and it was a magical experience. After 5 months of living in a cold, grey, Beijing it was so fantastic to be in this beautiful location where the weather and people were so warm. Ricky, Anne and all of the crew were so welcoming and helpful, always making sure we had good food and... More

In an attempt to make this review concise and not too wordy or long i will just mention the highlights of my stay at RBH in Sungai Pinang. The people who run this operation care wholeheartedly about what they are doing. Everyone on the crew was always there to provide delicious food 3 times a day, help with anything a... More

My wife and I had a great time here; hiking; snorkelling; surfing; and generally seeing local life. The accomadation and food exceeded out expectations, but what really made our trip was the hospitality, kindness, and good vibe created by Ricky and all the guys who work here.

We arrived on the first night exhausted and were greeted by Ricky who speaks French and English fluently. There were no more bungalows available so we stayed in a room close to the kitchen which was far from uncomfortable. Everything was awesome: the food, the atmosphere, the travelers, the locals, the place and the live music in the evening. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Ricky's and from the moment you arrive you are introduced to everyone and catered for! The young guys that help with all the cooking and cleaning also enjoy their jobs so much as they get to hang out with travellers, learn English and show everyone how awesome they play music and sing. The location... More

I spent 4 days at Ricky's place and if my time would be unlimited, I would stay there for ages. Besides live music in the evenings (all the boys are very good singers) and one of the most delicious food I have eaten in all Indonesia, the RBH crew makes you feel like you are a part of one big...

We spent 6 nights at Ricky's Beach House and felt very comfortable. Ricky or his crew were always around for guiding, cooking, talking and helping if needed. The bungalows are cosy, clean and in front of the ocean. Thank's to all of you for this great stay.

Had an amazing time at Ricky's. Everyone was soo friendly and helpful. Set in a beautiful villiage, this is truly a gem for backpackers, travellers or couples/ families. The food was great, even though I didn't like fish, Ricky made sure that I had a yummy alternative. This is a real authentic experience and a chance to get to know... More

On of the best places I have been in Indonesia, great people, real life of a community and you feel part of it, everyone is really welcoming. I was travelling alone and suddenly I found so many friends/family! So grateful for my experience there and everyone I met. Thank you!
