For those of us who aren't full-on, hard core adventurers the Permai Rainforest Resort offers us a great opportunity to experience the rainforest and Borneo in a more gentle fashion.
We booked a tree house and were blown away when we saw it! You climb 3 storeys to get to your wooden room on stilts! Whilst ours could have done with a bit more of a polish and spruce-up we loved it! The large double bed was comfortable and whilst the bathroom was basic, everything worked and the shower was hot! The windows also open up onto a small balcony which overlooks the sea.
As the weather was so stormy and wet we only used the beach once - you can walk through the forest to a small cove with beautiful white sand; take your own water, towels etc as its nature at its best with no facilities or umbrellas to rent!
The restaurant at the resort is lovely - great, tasty food and very reasonably charged.
Whilst walking around the resort in the evenings you'll need a torch. As you're in a rainforest don't forget to take appropriate clothing - you're going to get damp, if not drenched!
The beauty of this place is that its very much unspoilt and you can get a feel of the local natural environment whilst still enjoying your creature comforts. You can't not relax!
