We really enjoyed this hotel/resort. The staff are all very friendly and helpful but in a relaxed way. The island is beautiful and calming. The resort basic but adequate for a couple of days. The food here was of a very good quality and the bar stocked up with most things you want. The rooms are very basic and I... More

A group of us recently stayed for a friend's birthday and had a great time. The booking process is very easy and they are happy to answer questions in a polite and timely manner, even though I am sure they have been asked the same things 1000 times before! The choice and quality of the food throughout the stay was... More

We recently returned from our second trip to Rimba (we were last there about 2 years ago) and it was as epic as the first time! This time round, we went as a group of 11 including two kiddies, for a my birthday celebration. Carly and her team took incredible care of us- from start to finish nothing was too... More

This resort is unpretentious and fun! The location is brilliant for a weekend get away from SIngapore. The service and staff were amazing from greeting to farewell, they really made an extra effort to make sure everyone was having a good time. I definitely recommend a trip through the jungle to coconut jetty to jump into the clear water from... More

This is a fantastic little place, where the important things are done perfectly, and the unimportant things (airconditioning, hot water, etc) are just left out. Carly and her team are always full of smiles, open and friendly, attentive but not pushy, and they seem to be enjoying themselves (which they very probably are, given their surroundings). The food is great,... More

Rooms are very basic; no aircon, no hot water, no minibar. However none of that matters as you are effectively on your own tropical island with maximum 40 other people, the beach merely steps from your room the bar plentiful and cheap (compared to Singapore anyway!) and open until the last person finishes drinking, the coral full of fish and...

Let's see, what's to love about Rimba Resort: 1) The STAFF. They made us feel most welcome and took the trouble to remember our names. They were attentive but not intrusive. 2)THE CHALET. There's no door, no air con, no hot water for shower. But, the rooms were clean , spacious and the beds were very comfortable. 3)THE FOOD. Kudos... More

We went with another family for a total of 3 adults and 3 children from ages 6 to 10 and had a fabulous time! Pick up from Singapore was relatively pain free and communication with the resort was quick and easy. As many have mentioned, the rooms are basic but comfortable. Kids had fun on the beach kayaking and tide-pooling... More

Brought my two phones, laptop, and multiple apple devices and left them all off! Was never tempted to turn them on! This is the way a boutique should be, leave your wallet and phone on the bar with a good book, kids on the sand, stroll back to the room to get your book that you left behind, or send... More

It's the second time I've stayed at Rimba and I've held off writing this review for one reason... I want Rimba Resort to be my little secret! From Singapore, you can be transported to the most serene, simplistic luxury in no time at all. The staff are there to greet you and ensure that you have everything you need to... More
