I stay here a month ago and cannot wait to go back already! It is pure paradise with crystal blue waters, white sandy beach and a coral reef with amazing sights - we found clown fish just metres from the shore. The beach view hut we stayed in was beautiful as was the main bar and restaurant area. ALl the... More

My wife and I stayed in the honeymoon hut at Rimba a few weeks ago and had a great time. The resort is a lovely relaxed place with a great beach and good swimming right out front. Our hut was beautiful; right on the beach with lots of room and a comfy bed. All the staff are very friendly and... More

This is what you need after months of hectic work in a big city. Just the basics: a beach, gentle sea, great snorkeling, backdrop jungle and sounds, barefoot wandering, great food but not overdone, relaxed and very friendly staff. Okay, there is wifi and mobile reception but after a few hours you don't tend to it anymore and you simply... More

Just had a stay caution over the weekend and I was pretty skeptical about having no tv, no aircon in the room and limited WIFI. But I was proven wrong! The room is clean and airy, the bedsheet over the bed is extremely white with clean mosquito net over it! Nice! The Rimba crews are the most friendly people who... More

Excellent place, already planning a trip back here. For people coming from Singapore, like our group, they arrange transport to and from (allow 3-4 hours one way), including a 20 min speedboat from the jetty to the island. For one night, 3 meals are included and they were all delicious and plenty (buffet)! Our rooms were shacks right by the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Rimba Resort. Really friendly staff (all English!) created an atmosphere of easy conversation at the bar in the evenings. Very basic rooms, sleeping under a mosquito net and cold showers. Great food. Small beach but there is an incredible one 10 minutes trek through the jungle. Unfortunately, scuba diving when we went was awful... More

Spent 2 days n 1 night over at Rimba. Love their service! They picked us up at a convenient place in Singapore, drove and cleared the Customs and finally sent us right to the jetty when we took a 20 mins ride on a small speedboat! There the staff of Rimba received us and brought us to our simple hut.... More
