Hands down the best food I have had in Langkawi. Thanks to Rimba team for producing such good food! I ordered Udang Masak Lemak with Blackend Pineapple. Please come to try it.

Had a planned family trip and the crew have been very accommodating to pre-arrival requests. The restaurant has a very inviting interior with beautiful surrounding scenery. Food was top notch and service was amazing! Our glasses were always filled with water, and the crew constantly...checked on our food and even suggested us the best time to take a sunset picture. I will definitely make a trip back to this restaurant the next time I’m in Langkawi.More

We went there as a short weekend getaway. What I can say is we adore their warm hospitality. From the beginning till the end. All the staffs are kind and polite, assisted us through everything. The Villa? Well, if there's no reason for us to...go out, let's just say we really prefer to stay in. It's cozy (plus during our stay, there were a few times that it was raining but we don't mind). After the rain, the view was just spectacular. Private pool was so cold! Haha. But refreshing. The patio area is also nice. But beware of monkeys. Don't leave the plate or your precious belongings unattended. Rimba Restaurant. Had a chance to try out during our in package romantic dinner. The menu was so nice. The pasta is just so good. The sago melaka dessert 👍🏻. My favourite juice was pineapple. Can't get enough of it Amalaa spa. Let me just say it's a very rejuvenating experience. The calm environment and music during the session plus knowledgeable and experienced masseuse was just excellent. Very relaxing. 1 hour massage was just not enough. Haha All in all, never been to a private villa like this before. Alhamdulillah, got a chance to spend time here with my wife. We were told there's a special rate for revisit customers. Who knows perhaps one day we'll be back here 😊More

Tasted many things on the menu over few days, and all tasted great. My first order was spaghetti marinara and lots of seafood in the dish and fresh as well. another standout was the vegetarian green curry, didn't think I would like a vegetarian dish...but this was good especially with the broccoli fritters. who would have thought of that. will go back just for the food.More

Visited the place for lunch and my family and I were blown away by its beauty. The Rimba is sitting atop a hill overlooking Pantai Tengah and an island. The view is breathtakingly beautiful and the food was so good and uniquely decorated. The staff...were so friendly and approachable. Our highlight was ohoto session on the rooftop and definitely will be making an encore there for aunset dinner or probably stay there too. Indeed it was such a beautiful and fulfilling familial luncheon. Two thumbs up!!!More
