We stayed for two nights with a family of 5 in two tree houses. The resort has a good cafe with plenty of choice for picky children. Lots of tours on offer as well as a nice walk up to a waterfall in the jungle. a couple of beaches to chose from as well as a lagoon pool from a... 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...

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
