It's a bit of neither here nor there kind of resort; as in it's not purely a back-to-nature for real nature-lovers, but neither is it a resort kind of resort, where you can just hang out comfortably by the beach. However it really is in a rainforest, so for those looking for something a bit different, and does not mind... More

We had been to Permai RR in the month of Nov 2014, this was our last stay in Borneo. We had book a cottage room, as we had made the booking online and Treehouse accommodation is not for booking online. However upon reaching they shifted us to a Treehouse accommodation (TH 9). It was a wonderful experience, the accommodation is... More

Our two night stay in the #2 treehouse was an experience not to miss. Feeling the beach breeze going to bed and overlooking the water in the morning was truely spectacular. The #2 seemed to have one of the best views so try and ask for this one if possible. The other accomodation (cabins) were tucked into the jungle without... More

My family attended a wedding in Kuching last weekend. After the wedding we headed to Permai Rainforest Resort for our family gathering. When we reached the resort at 2 pm, our cabins were not ready yet. We could only get one cabin and we decided to just go there and rest while waiting for another two cabins we rented getting...

The Pamai Rainforest Resort is not your usual place to stay. It's an Eco friendly resort at the end of the road on the Damai Peninsula not far from Kuching. Don't go there if you're looking for a 5 star beach resort with all the trimmings but do go if you want a great location in the rainforest with wildlife... More

Stayed in their 6 bedded, Cabin #17. The place is no doubt in a jungle, but for the price paid, it should've been better. When checked-in, the toilet floor is littered with some kind of animal droppings, blackish pellets like. We had to rinse whole toilet floor with bidet!! We didn't request for cabin change becos we checked in late,... More

If you feel like to escape from the modern city and find a place to give yourself a relax and peaceful mind, you must consider about Permai Rainforest Resort! Try the limited tree house hidden in the middle of jungle, enjoy the natural voice from birds and insects. Although the room look a little bit old but it's just what... More

We stayed in treehouse number 2 and I guess they are all the same apart from the view. We didn't expect luxury, after all you're in the forest but the whole place is in need of refurbishment. The accommodation is very basic. The bed was hard and whilst the sheets were clean the valance and the runner were stained and... More

To be honest, I was hesitant about booking here because of all the mixed reviews I had read on the internet. But I am so glad I did - I have no idea what everyone is complaining about on here! We stayed in treehouse no. 9 for three days and I wish we stayed longer. The air con worked fine,... More
