I was skeptical initially as I was not sure if my family and I would enjoy a non-airconditioned stay; I'm glad we went. We were blessed with great weather despite the monsoon season. Everything, well almost everything except the mosquitoes which were inevitable, was great from booking to departure. They were very patient with my many emails and make sure... More

I carelessly left my travel wallet at the bar at Rimba resort while checking out. I only realized it when i reach back home. Contacted Rimba and the staff found the wallet. They had one of the staff pass me the wallet when they are coming to Singapore over the weekend. Thank you Jennifer and Carly for making this possible.... More

We had a wonderful trip to Rimba Resort and would strongly recommend it for a lovely relaxing trip. We were picked up from our door in Singapore and in just over 3 hours arrived on the island - totally hassle free all the way. The accommodation was set snuggled in the jungle and was more than adequate. The customer service... More

Cool place to stay! Rather basic bungalows, so don't expect luxury, air conditioned rooms. But quiet place, paradise-like, a lot of nice people, also a good place to have a drink with the crew in the evening. And the food was awesome! Additionally, the diving school nearby was great - I probably had the most patient dive instructor ever 😀

Very nice resort with wonderful staff , really making you feel at home. Although the accomodation is basic, you would enjoy this resort to really relax and chill out. The food is really fantastic ( except for the breakfast ) and the beach is good for kids as it is very protected and no waves at all and very shallow.... More

I spent 2 nights @Rimba resort on Sibu island, as a couple. It was perfect: the location on a beautiful beach, quiet place, the room is clean and cute, the girls working there are adorable, the food is very good... It is a perfect place for a honeymoon :)

Went with partner mid Aug for 3 nights (& wished we'd booked a few more!). Stayed in the Island Suite (no 20) at far end of resort so very private. This room had the advantage over the other cabins of being bigger, fridge, kettle, a safe and, importantly for me anyway, a hot shower. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Food... More

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.
