Venue Rental for Events

What is the capacity in Rimbun Dahan as a venue for a wedding or other private / corporate / commercial event?

We can have a maximum of 400 guests, depending on the configuration of your event.

What is the rate to rent one or more of the houses/spaces/buildings in Rimbun Dahan for a wedding or other private / corporate / commercial event?

Please email our Arts Manager Ms Syar S. Alia at syar@rimbundahan.org for a quote. Please include the intended dates and other details of your event. We charge a daily fixed rate, regardless of the time of the event – no difference between a morning/afternoon event and an evening event. We allow one day before and after for event set-up/take-down at no extra charge.

What are the facilities and amenities provided by Rimbun Dahan for events?

We provide the venue, access to 2 – 3 toilets and washrooms, and we can arrange for holding rooms and a space for prayer, depending on our space availability and the configuration of your event. We also have parking spaces along our driveways for up to 35 cars at a time.

We DO NOT PROVIDE tables and chairs, audio/video systems, lighting, furniture, decorations, catering, or any other event-related services. We are also not wheelchair accessible.

Are there wedding packages available?

No, we do not have wedding packages.

Are there preferred vendors for catering etc?

No, but any special accommodations for any vendor will need to be discussed with Rimbun Dahan and all vendors must maintain cleanliness of the grounds and protect the conditions of existing fixtures (buildings, plants and trees, lighting, etc).

Can we have a band/musician perform for our event?

Yes, we have some limited options with regards to space for a small platform or stage for performers. We ask that evening events not have too-loud noises past midnight.

Can we book one of the traditional houses to stay in during our event?

This is possible but it depends on availability as we use our traditional houses as accommodation for our artist residency programs. It can certainly be discussed. We have two cottages and two houses available for this purpose, and the cottages can fit 2-3 people each, while the houses can fit 5-6 people each.

What are payment options for venue rental?

Payments can be made by bank transfer, cheque, or cash. We do not accept credit cards. Once a booking is confirmed, we require at least 50% of the payment to be paid within a month of the confirmation, and 100% of the payment to be paid at least a week before the event date. If you require a different payment schedule, this can be negotiated. In event of cancellation, full refunds are provided.


Venue Rental for Commercial Filming

What is the rate to rent space in Rimbun Dahan for filming an advertisement, television show, or documentary or to have a photoshoot for my business?

Please email our Arts Manager Ms Syar S. Alia at syar@rimbundahan.org for a quote. Please include the intended dates and other details of your shoot. We charge a daily fixed rate, and discounts are possible for bookings of more than one day. PLEASE PROVIDE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS NOTICE FOR YOUR FILMING ENQUIRIES.

Are there venue sponsorships available for filming an advertisement, television show, documentary, or photoshoot?

No, we don’t provide venue sponsorships. Special considerations may be made for non-profit, non-commercial, and educational filming projects, but sponsorships for these projects are not guaranteed.

Can I make changes or construct something new on/within your grounds?

This would have to be discussed with prior notice beforehand. We prioritize our gardens and our buildings, especially our two traditional houses which are quite old. No permanent changes can be made to our buildings and grounds, and nothing that harms our plants and environment.

Payments can be made by bank transfer, cheque, or cash. We do not accept credit cards. We require the full payment a minimum of 3 work days before the filming date. In event of cancellation, full refunds are provided.
