“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2009

I came here with 7 families altogether for one of my cousins wedding.(Imagine my big fat Greek Wedding)
Having to gather everyone around wasn't an easy task. We were recommended to stay at this resort as they have bungalows and semi-D type of accommodations and deemed to be value for money.
The staff were very helpful and the food was delicious. I particularly like the malay traditional kueh spread that get topped up regularly.
We planned to come back soon for a proper holiday and yes, with the whole extended family in tow. Scuba diving lesson for the teenagers and batik shopping for mums.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2008

Rumbia Resort Paka consists of several one-story bungalows and semi-detached units. Each unit has three bedrooms - one master and 2 bedrooms, a living and dining area and kitchen.

We stayed at a bungalow unit which was very spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom has a bath tub; whereas there is an adjoining shower shared by the other two bedrooms.

The kitchen and fridge enabled us to keep food and baby food easily. There was also a washing machine and dryer in the kitchen area.

This was great as we brought our 3-month old baby with us and the resort felt more like a home than a hotel. The washing machine and dryer was very useful, especially for washing the baby clothes and stuffs.

The resort grounds are peaceful, full of trees and plants. We did a morning stroll and the small roads around the resort area was quiet and shady for pushing a baby stroller or pram around.

We were given a coupon for breakfast for two at the Resort's restaurant. The breakfast was okay - a buffet of local food mixed with western. The choices are limited but there's plenty of fruits, juices, tea and coffee.

As our unit had a stove, we could cook but most of the time we ate outside.

However, we found that not all units had stoves or washing machines, so be sure to ask the Resort Management or reception when you're booking for the place.

The swimming pool near the kid's playground is more a kiddy's pool, as it is very small, but it is also quite deep for kids - 5 feet in depth. There are no lifeguards so if your children are swimming there, be sure to be nearby and don't leave them unattended!

Overall, I recommend the Rumbia Resort for families, people traveling in large groups and those who want to stay in a home-like place rather than a hotel room.

  • Liked — Spacious units with nice living and dining area, kitchen and washing machine.
  • Disliked — Internet WIFI connection very low, sometimes will disconnect.
