Treehouse in the jungle looking at the sea is fabulous (bit of walking to arrive there though), natural river water pool is great!! short distance to the beach, and is a very short beach, don't expect to much. Is perfect for relax and a weekend break!! ** bring mosquito repellent :D

Stayed in a treehouse with our 6 & 8 yr old boys and absolutely loved it. Amazing location, in the heart of the forest with some great trails from the resort. The restaurant had great selections and REALLY good coffee for once on our travels. We did the high ropes course (like a Go Ape for those who know but... More

We just had 2 great nights at the Permai Resort. Realizing that you're in a rainforest (I don't want to hear complaints about bugs) it's a great place on a breathtaking property. It's a real jungle with accompanying sounds and trails connecting the cabins, one of which we stayed in as a family of 4. My daughter and I hiked... More

We decided to book at the Permai because the idea of a treehouse was so tempting, and we were not dissuaded by the few negative reviews. We collected our hire car at the airport and drove directly to the Permai, where our check in was swift and we were soon in our accommodation, tree house number 10. We were very... More

We stayed in treehouse number 2 for 2 nights 3 days with our granddaughter. What a lovely place to wake up in the morning. The sound and sight of the sea lapping against the rocks. Monkies and squirrels playing in the trees that surround the treehouse and the lovely breeze that wafts through the floor to ceiling meshed windows. The... More

We booked this hotel because they offered treehouses. Indeed, our treehouse was very nice, but we went there in the wrong time of the year as it was raining constantly and it was impossible to swim. Would love to go back some other time. The restaurand was cheap and offered very good food, but the service was quite slow.

Many different kinds of accommodation - from the comforts of the tree house, to the rustic longhouse-style rooms. Have stayed in all. Loved it. You can see wild animals visiting the resort, just hanging out with the guests. Great experience. Examples include the silver leaf monkeys (VERY cute!), slow loris, various birds, dolphins, otters. Sunset at the 2nd beach is... More

Loved our three nights here. Staff very friendly, fun to stay in a treehouse in a mangrove forest. At three nights we seemed to be a long stay - most people seem to do a night or two, as there isn't much to do except relax and go to the so-so Sarawak Cultural Village (good as an introduction to local...
