I spent four nights at Permai with my family of four. We stayed in a cabin, which was simple but quite neat and tidy. No complaints about the accommodation - it was about what we expected. The housekeeping staff do a good job each day. Unfortunately there is only one place to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The Rainforest... More

I was so excited for our nature trip in one of the largest rainforest in Asia. This resort caters to nature lovers and adventure seekers. We stayed in the cabin and love hearing the crackling of the branches n leaves as I step on it and hearing the forest bursting with life. I do not need to turn on my... More

We loved our stay at Permai! The minute we arrived and walked along the pathway through the trees we realised how special this place was; you really felt like you were in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nothing but trees and wildlife! Our treehouse was amazing- the experience of lying in bed listening to the sounds of the waves... More

It's been a month since our visit at Permai. I still remember how excited were we once we reached the resort. You can hear the sea breeze from the check in area. We stayed for 2 nights at treehouse no. 9 which is quite near to the 'pool' & the second beach. Everything was great at first. We enjoyed chilling... More

We arrive this afternoon at Permai. We booked a treehouse for 4 nights one year ago, in March 2013. We've received an email yesterday to say they've 'made an error' and we will be in a cabin. So disappointed and not impressed.

Stayed last month in treehouse #10. It has a little bit of a view of the ocean (probably more than the other treehouses), but my guess is they want to 'hide' them so there is quite a bit of foliage between you and the water. A shame as it would be a spectacular sunset view. The tides were greater than... More

Room: This place was my favourite place that we stayed during our 20 days in Borneo. Being in up in the treehouse was an awesome experience. We stayed in treehouse ten, as a friend had told us it was the best one, and it certainly was. This treehouse was the last one in the line, and has a double balcony,... More

This is not a luxury hotel. although it was comfortable enough, but its location is so special and its concept so original that I would highly recommend it. We stayed in a tree house with a balcony and a view over the South China Sea. On the other side the rain forest climbed steeply up to Mount Santubong. We enjoyed... More

We spent 4 days/3 nights in a lovely treehouse in Permai Rainforest Resort. The food was nice, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the well organized tours they offer and a mustdo is the exciting inhouse jungle trail which is in the backgarden of the resort! We really enjoyed ourselves! The treehouse itself was something really special.... More
