Rimba Resort - Pulau Sibu, Johor Malaysia


Only three hours from Singapore, Rimba Resort offers the perfect place to relax. The natural bay at the northern tip of Pulau Sibu, Malaysia, offers a quiet and private setting where you can enjoy great diving and snorkeling, or relax on the beach with a cocktail and a good book whilst watching the sunset.

Sitting on a Kenyan style village, Rimba Resort offers 21 charming seafront chalets all within a stone’s throw away from their 350m private beach. Because of its attractive location, Rimba Resort is the ideal place for a romantic beach wedding; team building function, corporate event, family vacation or dive holiday- the possibilities are endless.

Offering more than two dozen dive sites, as well as the perfect training ground for beginner divers. The resorts dive school, Hi-Tide Divers, is what any Singapore based diver, or those who wish to become divers are looking for. Hi-Tide Divers boasts one of the most experienced instructors in the region and can cater to all your diving needs, whether it’s learning to dive at your chosen times in Singapore or on the house reef at Rimba Resort.

For the ultimate relaxation treat, head to Bamboo Bliss – the resorts very own spa. Whether you haven’t had time to get your nails done or you’re looking for a tranquil massage Bamboo Bliss spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate your senses.

Not forgetting the resorts restaurant which will exceed all expectations for a small, personal resort. The bar, well there’s no other like it, and our private mini-van service from Singapore means you don’t need to drive or arrange your own transport.

Conservation... an important conversation.

Last year we took big steps to improve our conservation efforts. We've joined Project Aware,certified as a GREEN FINS dive center, took part in our first "Dive Against Debris", have stopped using single use plastic at the resort and the Rimba Conservation Crew have opened a Turtle Hatchery which released over 1600 baby turtles in 2017! Conservation Club (our educational kids club) has been a huge hit and has raised almost RM 20,000 for our Turtle Hatchery! A HUGE thank you to all of you, our guests, for your support.


2016 was the last year for straws at Rimba, 2017 was the year for ending all single use plastic at the resort...we have banned the bottle, stopped the straw and have also got rid of the little plastic pots of butter, jam and honey in the restaurant. This year we ran our first ever Clean & Green weekend with our guests - clearing over 100 bags of rubbish from the local beaches and our house reef. Next up: Coral planting and composting! Stay tuned!


It has been over two years since we stopped selling plastic bottles reducing our plastic waste by 2000 plastic bottles per MONTH. To date that equates to over 48,00 plastic bottles. We hope our guests continue this practice when at home and traveling elsewhere. Every little helps!


RCC buy the eggs from our local egg collectors and relocate them to the hatchery where they hatch approximately two months later. Last year our guests sponsored a total of 32 nests contributing RM 19,200 to the project. So far in 2018 we have 15 nest sponsored in less than 4 months.
