the atmosphere is great, the views from the hut unforgettable. Maybe the food could be better but it is ok, and you can taste local traditional dishes. It is not super cheap but the owner is helping to sustain the local young people and supporting their education. Worth visit and stay.

I heard there is Wi-Fi and 3 times meal and AC. But no AC no Wi-Fi. The meal cheap. And I heard 1night 250,000IDR. But I paid 500,000IDR per night. If you pay 500,000 IDR per night, You can add 100,000 more and stay resort in Sungai Pinang.

What an amazing time we had at RBH! Bungalows were really nice and cosy, with a really nice view. We really felt well there. All members of the crew are really nice and friendly, always here for us, we really had a good time with them, lots of fun and songs! And the food is really good!

That place, is an escape from the reality for sometimes. In front of you, the ocean... on your back the forest and the nice walk to the waterfall... not the colourful paradise like Maldives, but much more genuine... You have to relate with the local people, which are very simple end not habit to make tourist business... The only accommodation... More

Ricky and his team were lovely to be around. We hadn't booked but Ricky found us temporary rooms in his sisters family home in the village until rooms came free in the beach hut. We loved our stay. The communal eating drinking music & singing and the chilled people this place attracts helped make this our favourite place in Sumatra.... More

Ricky's Beach House offers two marvellous things - relaxed, comfortable (though basic) accommodation, service & food, PLUS the opportunity to immerse oneself in traditional village life. I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 nights and days at this out of the way piece of paradise - a walk through rice padi (busy in full harvest mode) and jungle to a stunning waterfall... More

We didn't book in advance and all the cottages where busy when we arrived. Nevertheless, Ricky warmly welcomed us and he managed to find a very cosy place straight on the beach. The place is incredible : it is beautiful and the atmosphere is very very relax. It is the perfect place if you want to chillout for some days.... More
