RIMBA Jimbaran BALI by AYANA
Ranked #10 of 60 Hotels in Jimbaran
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Rimba Jimbaran Bali merupakan hotel baru yang sangat layak untuk dicoba. Lokasinya berada di dalam kompleks Ayana Resort & Spa, dan saat menginap di sana otomatis kitapun dapat menikmati fasilitas dari Ayana, termasuk private pool, spa, Rock Bar yang kesemuanya dapat dikunjungi degan menggunakan shuttle bus gratis yang disediakan hotel. Saya sendiri sangat terkesan saat pertama kali tiba di Rimba Jimbaran, ketika melihat infinity pond yang berada di area penerimaan tamu yang langsung membuat betah untuk menginap di hotel tersebut, ditambah private beach yang dapat dikunjungi kapan saja. Saat menginap di sana, jangan lupa untuk menikmati fasilitas Unique Rooftop di malam hari,

We recently stayed here and was the location of our engagement. The whole place is amazing, 6 different pools, all unique, with a 'kids' pool with slide that meant the others were still quiet. Amazing private huts off the pool that were great for a sleep next to the pool in virtual privacy. the roof top pool was also a stand out as was the roof top bar. All other facilities were great, breakfast fantastic and kept us full all day. Also nice to have use of the Ayana facilities, although i think Rimba out did it to be honest.

Gym was good although could do with one more treadmill to allow for 2 couples to be in there at the same time, but that would be the biggest criticism i could come up with.

We will be back for sure, maybe for our wedding ;)

Room Tip: the pool access rooms look great, unlike other hotels i think this particular pool would only be use...

From arrival at Rimba Jimbaran lobby and the warm welcome, you know you've arrived at a very special place.

We've travelled a bit and stayed at some fantastic hotels and resorts around the world, but Rimba is the best by far.

Everywhere you look, everything you see and everyone you meet is a great experience.

Pool access room is the best way to enjoy Rimba, because you just open you balcony door a swim away. Gardens and grounds are impeccable and well established considering the resort only opened six months ago.

Staff are the warmest, friendliest and most helpful people we've every experienced. It shows that they must really enjoy being at Rimba and interacting with the guests.

Food is brilliant as well. So much so that we haven't left the compound and only eaten at the restaurants here at Rimba and next door at sister resort, Ayana.

To'ge has an amazing buffet breakfast and I'd rate it up there with the Carlton Ritz Millennium in Singapore. To'ge becomes a stunning dinner venue with dramatic lighting that transforms the restaurant and gardens into a much more intimate space.

Ah Yat Abalone Seafood restaurant is something else. Elegant decor and more traditional Chinese cuisine. Well worth a visit.

Kisik seafood restaurant at Ayana was the perfect choice for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. Beside the cliff top ocean location that overlooks the famous Rock Bar and beautiful sunset, we also enjoyed watching a man get down on his knee and propose to his girlfriend. Then there's the food. Based on a fish market theme, you are guided through the various seafood on offer and pay for the amount you want to eat. Well cooked and elegantly presented, dinner also includes Gado Gado salad, seafood soup and steamed greens.

If you want luxurious hotel, great staff, beautiful food and that real WOW factor, book a stay at Rimba Jimbaran.

This is our first visit and sadly we have only two nights left, but I guarantee we will be back as soon as we can! Thank you to all at Rimba Jimbaran for making our visit so memorable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra and book a pool access room.

Absolutely loved this resort. Received a complimentary upgrade on check in. Welcome drink and towel and a free cocktail from Unique, Yum.My partner received a beautiful chocolate cake for her birthday.The rooms are great with huge beds, large TV and great bathroom with rain shower and spa. The pools and grounds are just gorgeous with the private cabanas and bales all round the pools. The pool staff are amazing. giving fresh towels and free bottled water all day long. Special thanks to Darma you are amazing. The cocktails are to die for.The Unique roof top pool bar is absolutely stunning with there quirky décor. The restaurant does amazing food and a great breakfast with homemade breads etc. from the in house bakery.
Grab the free shuttle to AYANA and enjoy priority access to the Rock Bar for sunset drinks, expect a long line up even if in priority line and don't drink spirits at $20AUD a glass very expensive.Had a small issue on check out due to prepayment on visa debit but the manager sorted it very quickly. All the staff are very attentive to the guest.Over all this resort is at the top of my list of favourites and we will be back as long as the prices stay reasonable. Thankyou Rimba

Awesomely decorated hotel with a lot of different aspect of a forest and hillside design . VERY long resort style rather that a hotel by itself. Only down side is that is way too long to get from one side to one side. Other than that this is beautiful hotel to stay i Bali if you're looking for a quiet weekend.

Room Tip: Choose those that can see the swimming pool

Good price ! Great facilities ! A place to simply relax.
It is a very new hotel so the rooms are nice and well kept . Breakfast is a buffet full of options. It's nice place for either families, big groups or couples. Rimba is part of The Ayana so you get the options to visit their restaurants too with a free drop off only 3 minutes away.

Upon check in we heard we were upgraded, great ! thanks !.
RIMBA is a top hotel with one of the best trained staff we have ever seen. Having lived and travelled for over 25 years in Indonesia , we thought that this country had deleted the word 'service' and we were happy to see it has been re-introduced in Rimba. Service at the pools. restaurants are top (well trained !). the Unique rooftop bar is super and gives a good view over the sunset. In short, for those who are not beach addicts this is one of the best hotels you can stay at, an absolute tophotel
However for us it was missing something, beyond the fault of the hotel
- we are beach lovers and there is no beach at this hotel. It is for pool lovers and they get all they want with 5 super pools, quiet, well maintained and clean. The private beach they have with Ayana is mostly closed due to waves and current, so a beachlover has to take a taxi to Jimbaran beach, which is a real nice not too crowded beach during daytime.
- all rooms have airconditioning problems. the AC is way to loud, noisy for a 5 star hotel and the pump (or whatever it is) can also be heard. too bad and something management should discuss with the supplier/manufacturer. Managemen upgraded us again after we complained so they really do take care of the guests.
- the rooftop bar Unique is a great venue, fantastic bar but the food portions served there are very very small. Guests should be informed that, for example, a salad nicoise is just 3 or 4 spoons per portion, quality is good though. Contrary to the Rock bar at Ayana, that bar hits rockbottom when it comes to service. Dont go there, it is super mass tourism. get as many people in and give little/nothing in return

all in all we found Rimba to be a delight and they deserve the 5 starts to their fullest and we can imagine that a family holiday is superb because the kids have so many pools to choose from.

Dear ‘Keindah’

Thank you very much for your constructive comments after staying at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali.

It is a pleasure to know that overall you enjoyed your weekend getaway with us and that you were so impressed by the service from our team members. I appreciate your comments on areas where we can improve. In regards to our beach, RIMBA guests enjoy access to the private Kubu Beach located within AYANA’s property, just a few minutes away from RIMBA by complimentary resort shuttle. I will share your notes with our Engineering team on the noise from the air-conditioning in your room and we will review all units to address this concern.

I regret to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at UNIQUE. We officially opened the bar on 12 April and have been finetuning the service and facilities, and will launch the new dinner menu starting this May. I do hope that you will visit again when UNIQUE is fully operational and enjoy a much better experience.

Thank you again for sharing your comments and I hope to welcome you back again soon, perhaps to AYANA next time for an ocean-front experience.

Best regards,

Roger Habermacher
General Manager
