The hotel is absolutely stunning, with modern, tasteful and luxurious finishes. It is connected by frequent tram to its sister resort (Ayana) and to a private beach. It's a little out of the way from Jimbaran itself, and requires an inexpensive taxi ride to and from town. Food at the resort is good but expensive. The spa is astronomically expensive by Bali standards, although it is in line with Western high end resorts. The Rock Bar at the Ayana (for which Rimba guests get priority access) is a lifelong memory (although VERY expensive). The staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. The beach is beautiful. Location is quite convenient to the airport. In the early morning, it was only about a 10-15 ride. Honestly think it was our one-time bad luck, as opposed to a constant problem, but the air conditioning in our room could not be adjusted, even after we called for technicians to come and "fix" it. The temperature in our room hovered between hockey arena and cold-freezer. Made for poor sleep in an otherwise very comfortable room. Also, despite all the attention, the hotel managed to forget about giving us a promised wake up call. Fortunately, I set my own alarm just in case. But if I hadn't, we would have missed our early morning flight. The beach is very beautiful, but it's not for swimming. There are lots of big waves and big rocks, and the red flag is probably out 99% of the time. All in all, despite the shortcomings, I still believe this to be an outstanding hotel. Well worth the money (and priced much cheaper than many hotels that are likely comparable in quality).
All staffs are GST! Greet, smile and thank you! Best resort in Bali. We booked our stay via kayak and when check in, was told by receptionist that breakfast is not included in my package which have been confirmed by agent kayak. I showed them that my booking is inclusive of breakfast, I then emailed to kayak but no response from them till date. Rimba is really nice, after check in, receptionist called and said that the resort will extend breakfast to us for the our stay in Rimba. The staffs at Rimba ensure that whatever request you have will be fulfilled at their best possible. Not that I can think of..
Room is big, nice garden, private beach and swimming pool. No wifi in the room. Not sure whether it's because of the air-con or the wooden furniture, there is very strong scent in the room, too strong to fall asleep, basically I didn't sleep all night long.
lovely buildings in the style of Balinesian temples are placed in a beautiful tropical garden, wide sandy beach close to the hotel compex with shade and enough sunbeds to relax, romantic sundown and dinner in the fish warungs on the beach.
Right on the busy Jimbaran Beach which is lovely, plenty of good value beach bars very close by. The hotel lacks any atmosphere.
Fantastic tropical garden, nice Balinese architecture, tranquility & cosiness/ However the ocean was very dirty (full of debris0 compared to nearby stretches of shore at Intercontinental and other hotels
Nice, clean rooms, welcoming staff, great buffett breakfast. Expensive food/drinks. Just outside the hotel is a very nice and very cheap restaurant. Also, bottled water and soda cheap outside the hotel
just the landscape and breakfast pictures on website are deceiving. very old.needs massive makeover .full of mosquitoes .doesn’t worth the money.very popular for Russians.
The atmosphere was good. Pool was great Price to high for bali. Had to pay for poor wifi connection
Beautiful setting just next to the sea. The spaciousness and Balinese design of each lodging surronded by different varieties of trees,shrubs, plants and flowers simply make it seem like a peaceful paradise. All in all, a great place to retreat in serenity and tranquility. The lobby is also very impressive although a bit liveless! Staff do not always observe the "Do Not Disturb" sign - too eager to clean the room?! The internet-charge is much too exorbitant (50,000IRP) in proportion to the fact that it is slow and in a very small room with not enough privacy. Hotel room can do with a bit of facelift.
Very beautiful territory of hotel, good beach, the good location. Awful rooms and bathrooms! The urgent renovation Is required!
Nice resort. It is about 20 years old, but they do a good renovation. Beautiful architecture: wonderful reception - nice bedroom. Nice garden and clean beach. Close to the airport. The airport is open 24 h a day! Old air condition. Most people did not use the retaurant. It is expensive in comparison to the restaurants outside on the beach.
Very good food. Good big pool. During rainy season Jimbaran Beach gets dirty
Gives the impresion of abandoned area,everything dirty around,only 3 unbrelas available in pool area the rest were broken and lay aside,I am sure this hotel will close down soon
we enjoyed the setup of the resort as we had adult children with us but still had privacy.It was great having the pool and private yard and staff were great. no
Private swimming pool was very nice. In total the villa was nice: two rooms + bathroom +small garden with gazebo. Free wi-fi in the restoran light in the bedroom was poor... you are not able to read a book before sleeping.. also in the bathroom. If they will have a special room for massage and spa - will be great.. Also wi-fi in villa. In the restoran should be more wide menu for drinks.. Now if you was to dring whiskey you should get the whole bottle
The villa we stayed (from the 2nd night onwards) is private and peaceful. Liked the private jacuzzi. On the first night we we given a room next to the public roads. It was noisy right into the middle of the night. Beach is not easily accesible as we have to walk through restaurants with excessive smoke coming from seafood grill.
Very kind and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel A little noisy because closed to the main road
The villa is well situated near a beautiful beach. Inside Villa is beautiful and luxury. Good for privite settings. The website picture is misleading. The villa is not on the beach. The chairs on beach are outside villa boundary. It is not very comfortable. Since Villa is right in front of many seafood resturants, the air can be very smokey. There is big parking lot right in frond of villa, noisy.
Everything was perfect! the staff was very friendly and tried to make your holiday as good as possible.All the time smiling and willing to satisfy your needs. The location is very good because:- very close to the sea (you have to cross a chain of restaurants but this is no problem); - the seafood restaurants across the parking lot are faboulos. I recomend the one right in front of the Vilas - logo with blue color - I forgot its name! Also the place is very quiet and you can really enjoy relaxing time at your own pool. All the time staff needed to come and clean the rooms were calling before in order not to disturb you. This hotel was the best experience ever! Hardly can be called as something I did not like was the fact that the breakfast is not so varied...but when you have everything else there - it does not even count
Excellent Wi-fi was not free - it's bad.
Very good hotel. I enjoyed it. Service at the highest level. Ideal for honeymooners. Beach nearby. I enjoyed it.
suitable location if you just want to unwind at the beach (1 minute walk) or relax in the private pool. very friendly and helpful staff. located right next to the jimbaran seafood restaurants on the beach. the sunsets are not to be missed. may be a little out of the way if you want the busy shopping and clubbing areas of Bali. more options at breakfast would help as we were there for 5 days and only had a choice of american or indonesian breakfast.
Excellent friendly staff. Beautifully maintained Villa. Great private swimming pool. Peace and quiet. Location is very far from the beach. At least 10 - 15 mins by car. There is a shuttle service but it is not often, and can be up to 30 mins late (for no apparent reason). Likewise the shuttle to Kuta - the last one is about 6pm.. so if you want to dine in Kuta.. be prepared for a 80,000 rupiah taxi ride back to the Villas... and many taxi drivers to not know the way.
Rooms need renovation and the swimming pool needs to be cleaned continously. Linen were dirty with lots of stains and the villa is not cleaned properly.
excellent facilities, the villas are big and very nice, staff is super friendly
villas are of an excellent standard, with all facilities you could need. pol and day bed are great. breakfast - good choice. spa - nice massages. great staff. room service and facilities generally very overpriced!
Luxury villas, really peaceful atmosphere, perfect for romantic and honeymoons. Good complete breakfast includes local and European meals. Very friendly & helpful staff! Cleaning twice a day. Would recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for the peace and relax at the beautiful place.
privacy, private swimming pool, staff at your disposal (welcoming), free shuttle You can't walk to the beach or to the city (too far away)
Love the villa... and also the great hotel staffs and service. Location
The serviece was great. we feel durring the hole stay very enjoyable and relaxed. the villa is a really beautiful stay. Many thanks!
Everything was perfect! The staff were very kind and professional. The area that the hotel was located in maybe wasn't the best. But they had a free shuttlesevice every day that took you to different beaches and to Kuta so it wasn't a problem at all! The hotelroom was amazing and also the private pool. The breakfast was also good! We do really recomend this hotel!
The Pool and Garden Area was nice along with the Gazebo. I did not like the service, the staff was not very helpful. The cleanliness in the room was poor and we were not able to use the Jacuzzi due to the fact that it was not clean.
