“Beautiful retreat, perfect weekend getaway”
“Aman Rimba never fails to disappoint. I was here with a group of friends over the weekend, and our stay exceeded expectations.

Accommodation/Room: Contemporary, beautifully appointed Malay-style suites that are comfortable and spacious. Huge beds, cushy sofas and all the latest AV gizmos, should you need them. The bathrooms, in keeping with the theme, look like an extension of nature — open, yet private.

Food: The dishes we had were top-notch, like you would expect from a 5-star hotel. We had the most amazing fish for lunch (and a load of other dishes), which I’ve never tasted before in my life. Coffee/tea/water are available all day, so bring your own snacks and you’ll never go hungry or thirsty.

Service: Impeccable. They never intruded with overly attentive service, but knew exactly what we needed, when we did.

Thank you to the everyone at Aman Rimba!”

“The perfect place for a reunion for friends and family”
“Aman Rimba is a wonderfully kept estate with beautiful gardens and villas. We had a family and close friends reunion there over 3days and 2 nights . From the youngest (5 years old) to the oldest (80 years old) , everyone had a great time . There were many things for the children to do : swimming pool ,boating, ducks , playroom , trampolines , as well as many cosy corners for the adults to sit and catch up with each other. The river at the front of the property was cool and clean, surrounded by the calm jungle trees. The kampung food was especially delicious and authentic . We truly enjoyed ourselves, and would recommend this estate to anyone who would need a quiet getaway close to the city . Absolutely loved it!”

“A very special place”
“Christmas Eve, our son’s wedding, and we were in the most amazing place. Both of the families and friends arrived from different places throughout the world and all were met with helpful, kind staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them, no matter the time of day, and all helped towards an amazing wedding. We were there for three days and can thoroughly recommend Aman Rimba as a venue, the wedding photos were pretty amazing too with such a wonderful setting!”

“Luxurious and private retreat”
Booked aman Rimba private estate for 2 days 1 night for a group corporate session and was bowled over by this amazing property. Stunning, peaceful, relaxing, great service, full 5 star amenities minus perhaps gym….and so integrated with nature. Go to their website for rates and details but it runs on exclusivity and privacy concept. You need to book the entire property vs individual units… Which makes this a perfect place for corporate retreats. We love the foooood….! Great solution for small functions, team building, intimate wedding and product launches. Also for anniversaries and birthdays! We love the spacious villas and open space concept, facilities, pool, basketball court, karaoke centre, but their piece de resistance must be their gorgeous villas. Truly a special experience! My team loved it, we feel pampered and energized after the stay, definitely will come again!

“Aman Rimba – office trip”
We had our Quarterly Sales Team Retreat at Aman Rimba. We had booked all the chalets, there were 30 of us. The food was excellent… kampung style, bbq etc. Back to Basic, coincides with our Company Tagline….great. The bosses were impressed. Our sales meeting was in an open area – no walls room!. We went fishing in the afternoon, biking while the ladies watched from the balconies. Outdoor experience in luxury…

“Great place for any kind of retreat”
This is just an hour’s drive from the city or less in good traffic. 5-6 villas set in greenery with river nearby, a swimming pool on the estate . It is relatively inexpensive to book the entire estate for a clan outing or a small company getaway. It’s a beautiful estate set in nature The manager speaks English well and knows how to make it really enjoyable and is open to suggestions on specific requirements. The food is by cooked by staff from the local community and the local cuisine is excellent. Great place for children to explore the outdoors.
