The boat trip there is fun with lovely views.
We had booked the suit for a touch of luxury and privacy and boy oh boy that is exactly what it provides. It is large, with a large double bed, bug nets over the bed so you can sleep with the sea breeze and lessoning to the waves, great lined and towels, a nice wetroom and simply wonderful chairs on which to sit on the covered terrace in order to enjoy that wonderful view.
There are other places to stay in Malaysia that could learn a great deal from visiting the Rimba Resort to see how it should be done.
We were disappointed with the food the first night as it was a little like 1980’s pub food. We spoke to them about it and from them on we were served a western version of Malaysian food. Not ideal but good quality. The only let down was the breakfast which was basic, but as we were getting breakfast lunch and dinner it did not really matter.
The best beaches are on the other side of the island as this one has quite a bit of coral and stones, but the rubber rings help.
The transfer back to Singapore afterwards was first class.More
