The whole resort was set up uniquely with a homely feel. The staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome from the start. They made it a point to remember all our names which was really impressive since some of us have really difficult names to remember. Their service was fast as well and the drinks we ordered came...

Rimba was recommended to us by friends who had lived in Singapore, and we had a fantastic four night stay here over Easter. Two families with five children (aged 10 - 13), from Singapore and England. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay, and couldn't have done more for us. The food was delicious and the bar a... More

We absolutely adored this place. The beach is just as white and the water just as blue as in the pictures. Great snorkling and diving and the food is really good. We really enjoyed the bungalows which are very romantic and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean is amazing. There's no aircon since it's an open bungalow without... More

Spent three nights here as a 3-generation family group. Carly and her superb team at Rimba just cannot do enough to make your stay more memorable, pleasant and relaxing. We arrived quite late at night, and were met on the beach by 3 members of staff, who made us feel instantly welcome - as though we were the first guests... More

We loved the place: a secluded beach in a fantastic cove, great snorkeling from the hotel itself, in an amazingly quiet place ran by at a great team of super nice people. It's really perfect for a weekend as long as you like basic accommodation like us. We enjoyed having not door or window: you can hear the waves crashing!... More

This place is awesome! The hospitality, and friendliness of the crew is so good! I am still flabbergasted :) We booked the island suite which I recommend to everyone. The view over the sea is amazing. Don't forget to go snorkling or diving, they have daily trips to awesome little Islands. My girlfriend also enjoyed their spa facilities and lived... More

If your idea of a good holiday includes a sun lounger on a flat beach, a pool, air con, TV, hairdryer & wearing your best high heels, then Rimba resort is not for you. If however you are happy with a rustic but clean chalet with windows open to the sound of the waves (the beds come equipped with mosquito... More

Fantastic and personalised service of all staff. Good food for lunch and dinner to the point that you'll end up with a second serving for some dishes which is not very often for me :) meaning they have good chef in the house. The only drawback is the basic amenities and structure of the chalets is compared to its price,... More

We liked the relaxed atmosphere and the nice wind...Diving centre was great and the overall service was very good (food quality was exellent). Service attentive and the only issue we had was the inbound ferry transfer, we had to wait 2 hours at the... More

The moment you leave the jetty of Tanjung Leman you get already the feeling that you leave the busy world behind you. While you enjoy the boat trip you can see at distance a nice tropical island. When you arrive nearby you discover the resort and the beach huts surrounded by the jungle. Some staff members give you a warm... More
