After hearing friends rave about their trips to Rimba, my husband and I finally made the 2 hour drive from JB and found ourselves sailing through open waters over to Sibu island. We were greeted by smiles all round from the Rimba staff, and shown to our accommodation. WOW, this was not what we were expecting at all. A perfect little private hut, with a four poster double bed, open aired bathroom, and a view straight out onto the beach. The staff were busy keeping the island clean and planning conservation acivities in the day, and as the sun set we were tucking into a delicious BBQ, followed by drinks at the bar. The staff were all so friendly and gave you as much or as little attention as you desired. The resort is run by a fabulous English couple who made sure our stay was perfect. I would definitely recommend a short break here away from the City. Bring a good book, and try out some of their spa treatments. Will definitely be returning!!!
