Enjoyed a weekend at Rimba Resort with friends. The boys went diving, which was fantastic and the girls went snorkelling, which was also great! The staff greeted us with smiles and friendliness, and throughout the entire weekend, we were treated really well. Literally ALL the staff was smiley, friendly, helpful and accommodating. The dive centre was also a wonderful experience for the boys, who ended up doing 5 dives over the weekend.
We organised a driver to pick us up in Singapore and bring us across the border and to the jetty, where the Rimba Resort boat picked us up and brought us to the island. Everything went smoothly. We had bad timing on the way home on Sunday because getting across the border was a long wait, so when we visit again, I would recommend a Thursday or Friday morning departure from Singapore and stay until Monday late morning in order to avoid the Sunday night or Monday early morning border crossing.
The mojitos are amazing, and if you have too many, you can even get a wheelbarrow ride back to your hut. :-)
We elected to stay in a hut with no hot water and it wasn't an issue at all. Nice sea breezes kept us cool.
Super fun weekend! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!More
