Wonderful”

An amazing place where you feel far from civilization and you can easily forget about the rest of the world. The site offers simple wooden huts right at the beach with great snorkeling opportunities basically 20 meters from your door. Plenty of colorful fish, sting rays and sometimes even small reef sharks can be observed. The staff is amazing, friendly and always ready to make you feel at home. Great food is always on the menu.
This is not as much criticism as stating a simple fact: you stay in very simple wooden huts (fortunately with a mosquito net) close to a jungle, so you need to be ready for insects of all kinds (mostly ants and mosquitos). The hut does have a good ceiling fan to keep you cool at night, but it obviously doesn&#39;t provide 5-star comfort. A little &quot;survivor&quot; style holiday never hurts, though :)

Perfect hide away in paradise! Even with kids!”

The staff was super nice, always comforting. We have been there with two toddlers, 2 and 3 years old, and felt perfectly safe and had a very relaxed three nights vacation. The kids enjoyed the white sanded beach, the kids menu and the super relaxed atmosphere. There is a box with toys at the coffee&#47;lounge&#47;bar area, so the mums were able to enjoy the sunset with a drink, while the kids were perfectly happy playing with the toys. The chalets are basic, but clean and you can hear the ocean at night (and the view in the morning is stunning).
We did a snorkeling trip one day and while the kids were playing at the beach of an island, the adults were able to snorkel. In general the trip was nice, but the snorkel spot was not really worth it. Next time i would make sure with the instructor first, if the spot we are heading to is really a nice one.

Rimba is beautiful. If you can live without aircon, hot showers and plastic (you can), you’ll love it.

The perfect jungle getaway!”

I can’t recommend Rimba Resort highly enough for a jungle getaway and a true break from city life. The resort is run by the most amazing team who make the place what it is - it honestly felt like we were staying with family and they go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and at home. Each hut is in the jungle and within steps of the beach. If you like wildlife, you’re in luck - you’ll see so much including reef sharks that come into the bay almost every day. The food was absolutely faultless - so many delicious meals.

Rest and regenerate at home away from home.”

The staff is amazing. I have never felt so genuinely welcomed and made to feel at home. Adam goes the extra mile for everyone. He did a great job of maintaining the property during the MCO shut-down. Waking up to the sound of waves just metres away and the open-air concept of the chalet, surrounded by trees, gives the feeling of being part of nature. Brian, an extremely patient instructor, helped me regain my long-forgotten scuba diving skills. The jungle trek to Sea Gypsy was an interesting but safe adventure through dense forest. The nightly bar chats with staff and other guests were a great way to unwind, learn and let go.
Mosquitoes!! To be expected of course since there is dense vegetation all around. The fans in the chalets do a good job of keeping them at bay at night. Use the mosquito net wisely and don&#39;t let them in!! As the resort rebuilds, I look forward to seeing more activities such as hiking, boat trips, spa, retreats - this will all take time I am sure, after such a long shut down.
