we just had our weekend getaway at Rimba Resort last week, and we really had a great time. Carly and Zoe always answer all of our enquiries and questions before the trip. Transport from Spore to the resort also very nice. Our 1st experience took speedboat at night. When we arrived at the resort, Rimba crew welcome and greet us... More

The place is very beautiful and when we arrived we thought was a small paradise but after we had very unpleasant surprises. First the place is full of mosquitos and sand flies. Mosquitos are o.k. you somehow can protect you, but sand flies are all over and (we did not know and nobody of the stuff told us) they can... More

We thought Rimba would be the best place to start our vacation and have a good break from our busy life. Well it was just better than we expected. The staff and management is just great, friendly but not fake. Reef snorkeling, relaxing and spa treatment.. What else really. Hum... good food. You ll love it so just go.

We loved our little getaway at Rimba Resort. The resort is set in a little bay, a stunningly beautiful part of Pulau Sibu. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere quiet and personal. The food is delicious and plentiful, with a big lunch buffet and a three-course meal for dinner. The only negative aspect is that the chalets are... More

Last visited Rimba three years ago and immediately wondered why we left it so long. This place is so relaxing and laid back. Normally when I go away I'm still waking up early, but after a couple of days here I was sleeping late, although we were lazing on beach all day, or in the bohemian lounge room. Despite having...

I was reading just good reviews about it , but when I got there , I understand why that place has always rooms when in other resorts ( in weekends or national holidays ) you cannot find anything and you need...

We had an amazing holiday at Rimba. The staff is amazing and the scenery beautiful. If you are looking for luxe and fine dining, look somewhere else. If you enjoy easy going atmospheres, prefer a small scale hotel instead of a massive resort, like home made food and want a place to spend time together as a family, then keep... More

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
