I have been in the RIMBA for a short stay of three days with my wife and our little daughter 3 years old.
The employee were all very friendly and helpfull. There was always somebody close by to reply our questions or request. The 6 swimming pools are awsome. The pool at the "UNIQUE" - the roof top bar-is incredible for young children. Very shallow and long. You can enjoy lunch when the kds enjoy the pool.
The hotel is really nice and have an incredible design.
The RIMBA is close by to the Ayana hotel. We have been to the beach beside the Ayana - took the shuttle bus from hotel to the beach (free). It was an amazing place to play in the sandand enjoy some waves. They propose a pic-nic over there if you forgot food with you. It that was very good and very affordable.

Overall experience:Excellent. To do again

Room Tip: The junior suite hill side are wonderfull

everything here is superb.
the location that is quite far from busy area. so you will get a good time, good rest, good food, swim and fitness. there is no private beach, except taking a free shuttle to the Ayana Hotel (sided area).

Visually stunning hotel with very helpful friendly staff. The setting is like a tropical oasis that you just don't want to leave. The food and spa are more pricey than others in the Jimbaran area but the facilities (numerous pools, fitness centre, shuttle transport and lovely walking track and of course the stunning Rock Bar) are first class. Great if you want a quiet romantic getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay in rimba, one of the things that really exceeded our expectations was customer service, staff always gave their best to be friendly and help us with anything we wanted - special mention to Prisca at the pool, the young lady at the kids pool (sorry I can't remember her name), Niki at the roof top bar and Giordano, the Food & Beverage Manager. In general everybody is really nice. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, pools are great and plenty to choose from, food was great, everything was really good, very good experience and I will come back as soon as I have the chance.

words is not enough to describe how great this hotel is. at arrival, I am most drilled with their frangipani garland welcome. welcoming lobby and very rustic decoration at the hotel really make you feels like wanting to stay here forever.

upon arriving at our room, we are surprised with the complimentary honeymoon setup the hotel did for us. nothing big, but the gesture and thought that counts. room is well appointed, chick design and really make you feel comfortable and fit into every single element of the hotel.

breakfast is best with Long Island Tea, trust me, if you want a true relaxing holidays, don't even bother what time is it in the day, you deserve a glass of cocktail to go with the wide spread of breakfast provided by the hotel, including fresh whole coconut on the buffet line.

service in this hotel is tip top. all staffs are well prepared to serve every guests. they will always check on whether your room is ok, your stay are great, your food is right, your cocktail is strong enough, etc. communication is utmost important in this industry. every single details are explained to you, i.e. what's in your package, how can you utilized the benefits, what's not included and how can you request for the service, etc front desk even call a day in advance to reconfirm the airport transfer, such a hassle free experience.

they have 6 swimming pools in the resort and a self-sustained hotel where you literally don't have to get out. if you think you don't have enough, visit their sister resort Ayana Resort & Spa for more things to do. shuttle service to Ayana is around the clock.

staffs are extremely efficient and quick. ask for something and you will get it without having to wait for long.

I am not being biased, I have been around Asia and Europe. but, I have had the best stayed experience in Rimba Jimbaran. they are experience money cannot buy.

This resort is absolutely beautiful! I don't think I have seen nicer! The architecture is flawless!!
The pools are amazing, so much room to relax!
Pros
-Stunning complex, amazing pools, good rooms (big tv, fantastic shower, very comfy bed!), service is fantastic, gym is amazing and 24/7, rooftop bar is gorgeous!
- I honestly think this hotel is MUCH better then Ayana. Ayana has rock bar & ocean view but everything else is better at rimba
- shuttle to Ayana every 15mim is great
- thy have their own taxis which are convenient (5min wait). We used this to get to centre & airport. I think the prices are slightly higher then the blue bird bali taxis.


Cons
-Poolside food menu is soo limited & avg, but the cocktails are great. The prices r a lot higher then other areas of Bali but u kind of expect that at this resort.
- The spa prices are ridiculous. It's like $500US for a 2hr massage! No service is spa is reasonably priced!
- no shuttle to centre & my accommodation did not include airport transfers
- the pool upstairs which looks down into the water slide has a bad smell, like a toliet smell, must be close to the pipes or sown thing. This needs to be looked into, as we couldn't stay in this pool for long! Lucky there are so many others to chose from!!

I had come from w hotel in seminyak and the only thing missing was those bean bag beds in the pool! If rimba could get these in some of the pools, these pools would be perfection! :)

Suggestion
-Ask for a room upgrade!! As they are new and a lot of spare rooms, they agreed to provide upgrade and I have heard the same from others. We had a better view with upgrade!
- If your accom does not include the breakfast, make sure you go to Grocer & Grind in the centre (5min from hotel)! The food is fantastic and sooo much cheaper then rimba! About $10 aus for breaky and coffee!

Overall this place is amazing! I wouldn't stay for much longer then 3 days as it's abit secluded BuT it is a great place to start your bali holiday or even end ur holiday on a relaxing note!
