We stayed here for 5 nights in March. Overall it is a great hotel, very friendly staff with good facilities. There are loads of pools, all with sun loungers etc so there was never any issue getting a place by the pool (that said it was off peak and relatively quiet when we were there). The room was a little smaller than expected, but still had ample space. We traveled with a young child and the cot was not very noticeable in the room.
The hotel is basically within the grounds of the Ayana resort (same security check point etc) and the room numbers are structured so that they are contiguous with Ayana, meaning that there is no problem putting items from Ayana onto your room bill etc. There is a trolley shuttle thing every 15 mins or so which goes from Rimba to Ayana to the beach. I have uploaded a map of the resort to the photos to give you a better idea on how it is all structured. It takes approx 30 mins from the airport to Ayana / Rimba in a taxi, 40 mins from Seminyak.
We have stayed in Ayana before so are familiar with the general area and the hotel. Rimba is a good addition to the overall resort. The rooms are a bit smaller, but the hotel in general has a more modern feel and with the variety of pools it is perfect for a family with relatively independent children who want to use the pools.
We had a great time at the hotel and would see ourselves returning to either it or Ayana again in the future.
