A fab 7-day getaway to unwind, rest, and recharge. Beautiful location and chilled atmosphere. Friendly and accommodating team. Highly recommend as a weekender or longer break. Thank you, Mal, Adam, Nur, Nicki, Penny, Briony, and the whole Team Rimba. We'll be back soon.

Really enjoy my 3 nights stay here! Superb location for those who seek refuge from busy city life! Apart from the mosquitoes and rocky beach everything else is beyond excellent. Love how the resort retains most of the natural landscape. Food was really good and staff are really friendly and very accommodating! They even made me teh tarik every morning for breakfast :) You’ll also get one-to-one snorkel lesson which is very helpful and safe! Thanks Nur, Ayu, Niki, Penny and Mal! Already looking forward for the next stay!

I was so impressed with Rimba from start to finish. The staff are relaxed, efficient, helpful and respectful and they all went out of their way for us. The food was really good and as someone who has stayed at many island resorts, this was a pleasant suprise. We stayed in the family chalet which was perfect, spacious and cool. The beach is literally infront of the chalet and the sea life was great despite the sadly disappearing coral reefs. The snorkelling trip to smaller islands is worth it too. I highly recommend this resort and look forward to my return. The quality is high throughout, communication excellent and environment a tranquil retreat from busy life. Thank you Rimba for the experience.

This was a last minute family weekend getaway. This is our 2nd time at Rimba. With the Recovery CMO there are only one other couple and a young family at the resort. This is a perfect place to unwind. The water at the beach is clear, and snorkelling at the house reef is great. Food was great as usual with now more local fare on the menu. We went for a scuba dive; however the visibility was poor. We would definitely love to come back!

we really enjoyed our stay at Rimba resort, the staff is friendly, and the location is amazing. The cocktail in bar are just perfect, maybe just a bit slow the service during lunch/dinner but not too bad...diving was also a great experience, hope we can be back soon!
