Rimba is fabulous a very relaxing resort with quite brilliant 5 star staff. It is however very rustic with cold showers and open huts. If you want to get away from it all this is the place as there is not much to do if you don't like diving, except go for walks and read. The beach is a bit rocky but across the island, a 15 min walk, is a massive sandy beach and another big resort but it lacks the friendly intimacy of Rimba. The huts are very basic but the beds are very comfortable and we slept like logs there even though my wife is terrified of spiders. A big plus with Rimba is the bar as its quite cosy with great staff and great music and a lovely atmosphere.
things worth taking are: Torch, Beach shoes, Mossie spray, Book.
