Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly ethnically diverse staff which I think gives a good sense of community. ....where do I start, the meals are fantastic and...

It has been a while since doing a more backpacker style holiday - I must confess to be an addict to 5 star resorts these few years...however we decided on something new. Yes, the huts have no aircon, no hot water, no doors or windows (well they have heavy plastic blinds that remind me of on an old tent). But...

This resort is an ideal place for people living nearby like Singapore for a 3 day getaway to relax and enjoy the sun. The people running it are very friendly and helpful. They will sort everything out for you from transportation (shuttle, boat, taxi) to food and accommodation. The resort is located at a small bay which has a fairly...

Amazing resort that takes us back to the "kampong days" with sea, sun and human interaction! We were picked up at 6:30pm and reached the Mersing jetty at 9:30pm, waited an hour for the ferry transfer and reached the resort at 11am. Greeted by Karly and Cat before heading to the bar for a club sandwich snack prepared by the...

Rimba Resort is not for the urban/city dwellers. Here's what to expect : A trip to the private beach on a motorboat (where we first met Ash, at Tanjung Leman jetty), where your first step on the island is in the water. Friendly staffs, right from the beginning of my enquiries where Cat, not the feline, handled the bookings well....
