ECO Green LOGO for Eco Lodges

Rimba Ecolodge in West Sumatra is a truly integrated ecoproject. It involves pretty much all aspects of what an ecolodge is as we described it in this article. First of all, this ecolodge is located in a very remote area, quite isolated actually. From Padang airport door-to-door, it will take you 2h30 of transportation (see details below). If you want spend some time alone, this place is for you !

While in Rimba, you will stay in wood bungalows, right next to the beach (no AC in the bungalows). Everything here is in harmony with the nature and do not intend to have a negative impact on the environment. Thie Eco-Lodge is linked to a charity : each time you stay in Rimba you actually contribute to the charity helping the children of Sungai Pisang and Sungai Pinang to go to school.

Live like Robinson Crusoe !

Activities to do:
- Sharks, monkeys and turtles watching
