Our Rimba long-weekend escape exceeded our expectations at every turn. The rustic beach huts are perfect for couples of families.
Whether you're into diving, snorkelling, day spa action or plain old relaxing - Rimba is the perfect antidote to the city. A bar that couples as a covered but open lounge is the centre-point for all guests and the atmosphere couldn't be more chilled. Hammocks by the beach, views and sounds of the ocean from everywhere, fabulous food (fully catered including food intolerances/allergies) and a kid's club that's all about conservation with a focus on the resort's fledgling turtle sanctuary.
But without a doubt the jewel in Rimba's crown is its extraordinary staff who intuitively get hospitality and what that means for its guests on an individual level. All members of my family felt completely and utterly cared and catered for and our job was clear - relax, unwind and take a break. What's not to love. We will be back.
