Went for a solo trip mainly for diving but was surprised with the special chalet along with the sea view. Really loved the Kenyan style chalet. I was blessed with great visibility and had 3 wonderful chill dives with Nicki my DM. The food was very well prep I had set lunch, 4-course dinner and buffet breakfast and lunch for the next day. It was really delicious, expected that the least actually. The staffs were very helpful and friendly too. House reef was nice too, you cna just snorkel around on your own, sometimes you can get some surprises. 😊 Will definitely revisit again!

We booked the island suite for 3 nights and loved every second of it. Ferry service was seemless and the team welcomed us upon arrival. Served 3 meals a day and every meal was awesome, especially the Christmas lunch. Staff were all very friendly and provided great service as well as advice on the activities. If you want to spend time away from the crowds on the other islands, Rimba at Sibu is the place to be. Great place!

Our kids are always partial to hard rock hotel type of holiday but in light of ongoing Covid-19, we were looking for a resort that is away from the crowd. This resort is not for you if you are looking for luxury escape but if you are looking for a laid-back, rustic and refreshing beach holiday then this resort will suit you perfectly. The chalet we stayed was a family chalet. It was clean, spacious and comfortable without the frills. The staff were friendly especially Nicki who was very helpful and answered all our “visitor” questions. The food was good and we really enjoyed the alfresco dining. We spent most of the day swimming, kayaking and exploring the beach. It was exactly the type of vacation we were looking for... a relaxing beach holiday in the midst of nature and a private beach.

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!
