Checked-in on the 8th of December with 3 of my friends and was rudely told by a male receptionist that the treehouse couldnt accomodate all of us due to overweight (referring to the weight of some of my friends). Decided to stay in a cabin but the floor was sandy, & couldn't completely close the curtain in the living room....

It's a fun stay at the tree house which surrounded by trees and great sea view. Love the shaded pond as kids can enjoy playing water anytime of the day. Lots of activities and the cafe offer reasonably price meal. It will be perfect if the management took note of the cleanliness of the room and the cafe. Spider web...

De location of the treehouses is great. Overlooking the sea amidst jungle with birds and monkeys. But for the price they are a bit shabby. I believe they are renovating and the tree houses in the worst state arent rented out. In treehouse 2, with great sea views the roof is falling of, the balcony railing doesnt feel sturdy and...

Instead of a beachfront hotel (which I could have booked anywhere else in the world), I decided to book my honeymoon in Permai Rainforest Treehouse as it was unique, and my husband and I were fairly impressed! The honeymoon package entailed the biggest treehouse for us - Treehouse 10, which had a king sized bed and 2 balconies as opposed...

I brought my students here for teambuilding and I'm very pleased with the facilities and outdoor activities available in this resort. Located at the cove of Damai beach, it has the sand and the sea with its backdrop of Mt Santubong. We took the hiking trail, which was a 6km that would take roughly 1.5 hours if you are fast....

Liked it a lot. We actually wanted to rent a tree house but when trying to book we discovered that those were not rented out to families although they appeared large enough. They regular cabins were OK. At down monkeys and other wild animals passed over the roof. The restaurant was not OK. You had to come early for a...

Permai is literally at the end of the road on the Damai Peninsula, with Santubong Mountain on one side, the South China Sea on the other, and the forest all around - and above. We stayed in a family cabin, which was very basic (beds, fans, chairs, bathroom, small fridge and that's it - no aircon) and could benefit from...
