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...

This is the place to go when you want to get away from city life. We stayed in the tree house, which is propped up about 3 storeys high in the air, facing the ocean and surrounded by mature forest trees. There is a balcony with a view to appreciate, and the bed is surrounded by open views into nature... More

I'm sure this place is lovely. But I am terrified of spiders and had booked 5 nights, we left after one! I tried really hard and had an umbrella up all of the time, but we only got as far as our treehouse, which was very lovely. We had to keep breaking huge spider webs down every time we left... More

Really enchanting place to spend a night that's for sure, great view from our tree-house & the tree-house itself was very well equipped & safe. However there are alot of massive spiders about the place so if you can't handle that probably best to spend your time elsewhere. On the rain forest trail I felt more like Harry Potter waving...

We stayed in one of the gorgeous tree houses, cloaked in rain forest but looking out over the sea. Such a dramatic setting. Beautiful and tasteful interiors, spotlessly clean and complete with a seaside soundtrack at the front and rain forest song at the rear, these are really special. The rain forest is pretty hard on architecture so if you... More

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
