The location is great, nice little beach and the restaurants serves good food (if the dish you prefer is available). The cabines are old, shower and toilet smelly, dirty sheets on our beds. The staff was not very helpful, the excursions they offer are ok but they only have 2 boats. We wanted to book our excursions on the first... More

This little gem is a peaceful retreat in an unspoilt location which is clearly well loved and cared for. The treehouses are well worth the experience and the sounds of the rainforest provide a special ambiance. Relaxed, friendly and helpful staff, great service with incredible views from the cafe over the pristine coastline. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We... More

Think "camping" rather than "resort" and you will be in the right state of mind for this place. The location is great and worth putting up with some discomforts. Facilities are basic and rather grotty, service is minimal. We stayed in a 6 bed cabin and when we arrived we discovered that someone had been sleeping in one of the... More

We were really looking forward to staying here after reading reviews and were not disappointed.The place is so beautiful, the accomodation is unique , waking up in the rainforest to all the sounds of the jungle was a highlight of our trip. The accomadation is basic but clean and all you need. The cafe provided one of the best breakfasts... More

I've been wanting to stay in a treehouse for ages, but as I like my creature comforts (ie en-suite) I'd pretty much given up hope of finding anywhere that ticked all the boxes. I was therefore hugely excited when I came across Permai, and our five days there definitely lived up to expectations. We had treehouse number 10 which was... More

We could only get 2 nights accommodation at permai, due to the rainforest music festival that coincided with our visit to kuching. Tree top room number 6, unfortunately has it's view to the beach, blocked by trees, but we loved it none the less!! It was clean, comfortable, good air con, fans and great water pressure etc!! I did laugh... More

We enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights. 5 of us in a cabin, which was very comfortable with two bedrooms and a living area. This is not the lap of luxury but if you can enjoy this kind of accommodation, then it is worth it. There are beaches, hiking trails through the rainforest, a decent enough restaurant, and a... More

We spent 5 nights here in a tree house and it was not enough time. The staff are awesome, the boat trips amazing, the rainforest is outstanding. The untouched beauty of this place is breathtaking. The lack of tourist related crap and rubbish on the beach and in the ocean was a pleasant surprise after other places in Asian. You... More

We stayed for two nights in a tree house - and really enjoyed it. The house was spacious, clean and well-equipped and the location between the trees directly at the seaside was fabulous. The staff was helpful and very friendly, e.g. our airport transfer in the early morning was organized without any problems. The resort’s beaches ware small but fine... More
