We loved this place for its tree house, quiet blissful setting, activities and location. We had tried to book a tree house on line only to be told there were non available for the four nights we requested so we booked a cabin. On arrival we asked again and found that they could accommodate us in a tree house. YAY!... More

We stayed here for four nights - three of which were part of the nature package. The rating is solely based on the accommodation as there were a few issues relating to the tours that I will go into more detail below. We were in treehouse 10 which benefits from an extra balcony. However there are a number of trees... More

My wife and I have just left Permai today and are both totally gutted. We stayed in a treehouse (3) which was incredible. The view was phenomenal over looking the sea. Number 2 has the best view overlooking the sea but 3 is second best. If I was to pick holes I guess I could say the bathroom was in... More

Well, there's not much more to add than that! Treehouse, AC, hot water, great food, overlooking the sea. Access to private beach, private freshwater pool, jungle trek to waterfall. What more do you want? Great staff, great location, great vibe!

We stayed here four night (but I wish it was longer); Our room was a treehouse which was surprisingly roomy for two people. Loved hearing the surf at night. We did their jungle walk which was a nice warm up for hiking in Bako later. We saw water monitors, monkeys and other wildlife every day. The staff was polite, friendly... More

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
