We spent 4 nights at the Rimba Resort with our daughter and family who currently live in Singapore; so a spread of ages from 7 to nearly 70! We have stayed in other resorts but this is certainly 5 star made possible by the friendliness and excellent service provided by Carly and her well trained team. It is a delightful... More

We went for the weekend in a large group of friends and could not have been made to feel more welcome. All the staff without exception are so friendly, remembering all of our names and going out of their way to make us feel welcome. When we arrived they met us off the boat and when we left they waved... More

The accommodation is basic but good, the food is basic but really well prepared, the selection in the bar is basic but more than sufficient. So why is this excellent and not 'just' good. Because of the staff, they will lift this resort with its beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere to a higher level essentially by being thoughtful and going... More

Travelled to Sibu in a group of 13 friends last weekend and was blown away by the fantastic service and friendliness of the people running Rimba. Despite arriving late at night and in such a big rowdy group, we were quickly welcomed and treated to the warm hospitality of Carly and her team. They made an effort to speak to... More

We stayed here for a weekend in October 2013 and had an amazing visit. The staff are friendly, all speak very well english, the food was outstanding, transportation efficient and the view and location just perfect. It's a short trip from Singapore, and a perfect getaway for a weekend. Would recommend it to anyone who's not expecting fancy; this is... More

Stayed in the island suite to get hot water but I wouldn't pay the extra money on return. The hut has an in/out concept which we felt worked but those scared of creepy crawlies would probably hate this place. We can't praise the staff enough. So friendly and helpful and they really make the resort. The food more than exceeded... More

At the request from Masters 8 & 9 for a relaxed beach holiday we booked into Rimba. Was worried that they may be bored after day 1 - how wrong we were! With great food, friendly staff, snorkeling at our fin tips there was never a problem with keeping ourselves entertained. With our family imposed happy hour watching the sunset... More

This has been our 8th or 9th visit to Rimba since 2001. Every time it gets better (we come from the UK to visit Rimba). We stayed in the Island suite with stunning views of Tinggi. The food was out of this world and the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Our son (13 years)... More
