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

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
