We had heard good reviews about the Permai Rainforest Resort, both online and straight from the horses mouth. Our experience has been nothing but poor. We booked the treehouse for 7 nights, but we are now checking out and moving to another hotel on the morning of day 3. The BAD things - Upon arrival in the evening we saw... More

Used the hotel's pick up service, 30 RM for 2 persons from Kuching city centre. We stayed in a treehouse which was a great experience. Looks very basic from the outside but has everything you need on the inside. Warm water, AC, fan. This doesn't mean that the insects will stay out...:-) Staf were OK but not really involved.

We stayed there for 3 days in February 2014 with our 7 month old and went jungle trekking etc. It was good value for money and clean. Food was ok and reasonably priced. We met the restaurant supervisor/manager there, Cheryl and she was a gem. Would love to go back one day with our daughter when she is older. Overall... More

Luckily we only stayed one night. Its a shed in the forest. No hot water. No air con. Torn fly screens ensure attack by insects during sleepless night due to the heat staff are slow and unfriendly. Food was terrible. would never come here again. Almost prefered to sleep in the hire car. Booked with agonda and not so cheap... More

My 21 year old Daughter chose this Resort as she loves the outdoors and jungle etc. We really enjoyed the Tree House ( #10) which has an extra balcony to overlook the water. The accommodation is not the Hilton but well kept and clean. The Restaurant has a fantastic position, especially at sunset and the food is good and reasonably... More

We stayed for three nights in a treehouse. From the sea it could be hardly seen as it was tucked away between the trees. Every morning the squirrels came by to say hello. The treehouse was great! Good bathroom, good bed, smally refrigerator to keep our sons milk cool and to make a coffee in the morning. It is possible... More

After we did our check in, which was just business, and not friendly. I asked for the trip to Bako and the evening mangrove trip, which both were possible for the next day! ( better do an early booking because they have limited places) So we booked for both trips and di ceded to do also the night walking! already... More

We were really pleased that we made time in our tight schedule for a stop here. We were pleasantly surprised with our treehouse which was clean and reasonably modern with perfect sea views. We were grateful for our mosquito net as there were a number of areas where bugs could enter the structure, particularly around the windows. Also be prepared... More

My girlfriend and I booked 2 nights in a tree house. From the exterior, it was what I had expected, shabby and full of character. What I didn't expect was how comfortable and modern it was inside. The sea view from the balcony is superb, and the rainforest setting is a million miles away from the UK! Just remember the... More

We stayed one night in a tree house and it was a great experience. From your balcony you can see monkeys and squirrels, you sleep with the sounds of the forest and the sea, and wake up with the birds. The atmosphere is relaxing. The wooden tree house is lovely, clean and very comfortable. We didn't need to use the... More
