“Worth visited!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Absolutely COOL place (altogether with relative Ayana). Newly opened.
A lot of pools in both hotels, including great pools and facilities for kids.
Staff absolute friendly, attentive and helpful!!!! Smiles, smiles, smiles!!!! Smiles are everywhere you are on this big territory.
Not bad breakfast, amazing bar in Ayana(for guest of both hotels entrance without line, that was very convenient, because many visitors coming from outside and line was about 50 more metres and was actually slow). Chinese restaurant in Rimba with dim-sum and cold beer was fantastic.
Taxi service provided by hotel is adequate, fast and reasonable.
Beach is fantastic but waves are very strong and often hang red flag.
No claims, no disappointments, only positive feelings!!!!
Don't doubt!!Worth visited!!!

It is a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay including the cuisine at Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant and the Priority Access to Rock Bar Bali. As you note, RIMBA is the new sister hotel of AYANA Resort and Spa, and all guests enjoy convenient access to both resorts’ facilities with complimentary shuttle service.

Nice new hotel, very tastefully decorated. Modern and clean/green rather than traditional balinese style (Ayana has more of a traditional feel to it than Rimba). Excellent daily cleaning of rooms. Stayed in Hill Side room - spacious room with nice balcony and interior/exterior furniture. Bed very comfortable - you will have a great sleep. Bedding cover is a bit thick (too hot) - wake up dehydrated.

You can hear neighboring rooms (above, next door) - children yelling/crying/running and doors closing / noise from cleaners. Nice mood lighting in room/bathroom but not practical when you need light e.g. trying to do your make up. But in summary, room is very comfortable and nice.

Lovely pools, all pools we experienced are shallow in depth (up to 1.2m) - good for children... a little shallow for adults. We liked the top pool. Nice pool furniture, lots of beautiful, private seating options in which to chill out. Staff in pool area are very accommodating, helpful and friendly. Nice touch to offer free bottles of water and plenty of towels nearby.

Breakfast was disappointing. There was lots of selection including many asian choices - catered well to the many asian guests. Poached eggs undercooked and stone cold. Boiled eggs come with grey yolk. Waffles rock hard and pancakes not good. Nice range of salad, pastry, fruit and juice options. Staff at restaurant seem to ask us same question all the time - do not communicate with each other. Staff do not always give way to guests.

Enjoyed our time at the resort but have enjoyed other places more. Very far from anywhere but nice safe location of families. Be sure to travel across to Ayana for nice food.

English is hit and miss. It's sometimes quite hard to communicate with them.

The rock bar at Ayana is quite good, good live DJ with great views, great cocktail menu.

Overall a good hotel but there are better options to our taste/needs/preferences as a couple that enjoys a character, romantic accommodation.

Room Tip: Hill view = view over staff car park. Rooms not very sound proof. Seem to hear crying/running child...

Dear ‘Travellinck’

Thank you for your feedback and your comments on areas where we can improve to provide maximum relaxation for all guests.

As you mentioned, RIMBA and AYANA are secluded destination resorts, located within a 90 hectare property above Jimbaran, 20 minutes drive from the airport. RIMBA is perfect for travelers looking for maximum relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist areas. I do apologise for the inconvenience caused by the noises you heard and I will work with Engineering to review our insulation. I also note your comments on the breakfast experience. Our Chefs maintain the highest standard in delivering fresh cuisine to all guests, and I will cascade your feedback to our Executive Chef for our review and improvement.

Thank you once again for your constructive feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back for a more relaxing experience at RIMBA.

Best regards,

"We" a small family of 2 adults and one 7yr old stayed a bit over 2 weeks in this Hotel.
After a 31 hr travel we arrived late in the evening and were greated in such a lovely manner its amazing. Flowers, welcome drink, smiles....

We experienced this kind friendliness and also to note, sharp efficiency during our entire stay.
Regardless if you ask the employees for information about outside dinning, in resort dinning, about the area, trips to take, advises or else.... You are always given best honest advise, which makes you morecomfortable to stay and feel home away from home.

The private beach is an amazing lagoon, "what a picture!!!" simply fantastic, and lifeguards take care that you only swimm when the currant is not dangerous for you,
nice beach sunbeds, cold water, towels, all you need is there.

The Spa, me and my wife tried is wonderful and their staff very proffesional!

The "sveral"swimming pools of Rimba are layed out so that if you like privacy "adults stay in one area"
Families in another, there is even a small waterslide for children which or daughter loved' and she quickly found friends ;-)
And we loved the swimm-up bar where the team members prepared tasty cocktail and more..
There is simply so much pool area - something for everyone,, just great,
I loved the well speced gym! Constant friendly helpful instructor on place.

As a guest of this hotel you can also use all outlets or pools ... of the sister hotel "the famous Ayana Hotel" which is nice. 3 min away by shuttle which goes all day long complimentary between the hotels, the beach, the spa & the grounds.

In both hotels there are so many different restaurants with all different cuisines and settings,
Example-the world famous rock bar - situated on-along the cliff&rocks (must be around 6 p.m to watch the sunset. (Hotel guests of both hotel enjoy no queue priority, wich we liked as you will see guests of other properties queue a looong time to get a space in this amazing venue).
More-
Restaurants, open air, inside restaurants, overlooking the ocean, etc etc

All the restaurants we tried are super top notch and great service all along.

A short & cheap taxi ride brings you to several towns in the area which is great if you like to explore bali.

To sum up the stay, there are hundreds of options and hotels in bali, but having spend here over 14 days, we defenetly would return....

Thanks, Rimba & Ayana Team!!! - top top notch

Rimba Jimbaran Bali merupakan hotel baru yang sangat layak untuk dicoba. Lokasinya berada di dalam kompleks Ayana Resort & Spa, dan saat menginap di sana otomatis kitapun dapat menikmati fasilitas dari Ayana, termasuk private pool, spa, Rock Bar yang kesemuanya dapat dikunjungi degan menggunakan shuttle bus gratis yang disediakan hotel. Saya sendiri sangat terkesan saat pertama kali tiba di Rimba Jimbaran, ketika melihat infinity pond yang berada di area penerimaan tamu yang langsung membuat betah untuk menginap di hotel tersebut, ditambah private beach yang dapat dikunjungi kapan saja. Saat menginap di sana, jangan lupa untuk menikmati fasilitas Unique Rooftop di malam hari,

We recently stayed here and was the location of our engagement. The whole place is amazing, 6 different pools, all unique, with a 'kids' pool with slide that meant the others were still quiet. Amazing private huts off the pool that were great for a sleep next to the pool in virtual privacy. the roof top pool was also a stand out as was the roof top bar. All other facilities were great, breakfast fantastic and kept us full all day. Also nice to have use of the Ayana facilities, although i think Rimba out did it to be honest.

Gym was good although could do with one more treadmill to allow for 2 couples to be in there at the same time, but that would be the biggest criticism i could come up with.

We will be back for sure, maybe for our wedding ;)

Room Tip: the pool access rooms look great, unlike other hotels i think this particular pool would only be use...

From arrival at Rimba Jimbaran lobby and the warm welcome, you know you've arrived at a very special place.

We've travelled a bit and stayed at some fantastic hotels and resorts around the world, but Rimba is the best by far.

Everywhere you look, everything you see and everyone you meet is a great experience.

Pool access room is the best way to enjoy Rimba, because you just open you balcony door a swim away. Gardens and grounds are impeccable and well established considering the resort only opened six months ago.

Staff are the warmest, friendliest and most helpful people we've every experienced. It shows that they must really enjoy being at Rimba and interacting with the guests.

Food is brilliant as well. So much so that we haven't left the compound and only eaten at the restaurants here at Rimba and next door at sister resort, Ayana.

To'ge has an amazing buffet breakfast and I'd rate it up there with the Carlton Ritz Millennium in Singapore. To'ge becomes a stunning dinner venue with dramatic lighting that transforms the restaurant and gardens into a much more intimate space.

Ah Yat Abalone Seafood restaurant is something else. Elegant decor and more traditional Chinese cuisine. Well worth a visit.

Kisik seafood restaurant at Ayana was the perfect choice for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. Beside the cliff top ocean location that overlooks the famous Rock Bar and beautiful sunset, we also enjoyed watching a man get down on his knee and propose to his girlfriend. Then there's the food. Based on a fish market theme, you are guided through the various seafood on offer and pay for the amount you want to eat. Well cooked and elegantly presented, dinner also includes Gado Gado salad, seafood soup and steamed greens.

If you want luxurious hotel, great staff, beautiful food and that real WOW factor, book a stay at Rimba Jimbaran.

This is our first visit and sadly we have only two nights left, but I guarantee we will be back as soon as we can! Thank you to all at Rimba Jimbaran for making our visit so memorable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra and book a pool access room.
