Driving from the airport to the hotel, we were already expected at the entrance of the hotel. The greeting after getting off the cab at Rimba was so warm and friendly, me and my girlfriend already wanted to cry. I'm not gonna spoil, just book the hotel and see it for yourself. I have never experienced so well trained, polite and friendly staff in my life. Ontop of this welcoming, the friendly host offered us a complimentary upgrade from Hillside to Bayview Room and we couldn't decline this generous offer. We had direct view onto the pool and this special paradise feeling came all over us. The room is beautiful, not the biggest in the world but designed with so much love to the detail, that you have so much so explore. Even the bathtub is so amazing and sparkly with gold. We could spend our entire holiday in the room, even the TV programs were so much fun to watch, since they had many channels not available in other resorts around Asia or Bali.
The pools and the entire scenery are amazing and the pool boys are super friendly even remembering our names. We became friends very quickly. Also Unique bar was nice and they have the same food and snacks like at the pool. We tried their mexican fish wraps, the summer roll and the Mangosteen Frappee. All very yummy, also the drink with strawberry and basil (forgot the name). Soooo good. Breakfast was also amazing. The staff at breakfast was friendly, but after experiencing so many other genuinely warm-hearted people, maybe the breakfast staff need a little upgrade in being warm and generous like all the other staff at Rimba.
Of course we didn't miss the chance to drive over to the Ayana and check out their pools and the stunning Kubu Beach with their one of a kind clifftop view. After showing my friends the pictures of the Kubu Beach they couldn't believe we been to this hidden spot on earth. And Rock Bar is also amazing, especially after skipping line, since we been hotel guests. Only the summer rolls at Rock Bar were a little boring with plain noodles and mango inside compared to the amazing summer rolls at the pool in Rimba. I even believe it's worth to book the hotel just to skip the line to the wonderful Rock Bar. But our most amazing experience during our visit to Ayana was the Kisik Restaurant. The food was not only amazing or watching the sunset, but also the hosts were amazing. Wina made our dining experience unforgettable. She is an expert on all levels of amazing, warm and excellent service.
My friend and me feel so special and lucky to have experienced this beautiful and stunning hotel. Not only the place looks amazing but also the staff is from another world. i could go on and on writing about our experience, lying at home here in my super comfortable Rimba bathrobe. Hehe, I have to admit that I took it so I will never forget my experience.
Thank you Rimba for this amazing stay in Bali. We will come again!!!!!
