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...

It's a bit of neither here nor there kind of resort; as in it's not purely a back-to-nature for real nature-lovers, but neither is it a resort kind of resort, where you can just hang out comfortably by the beach. However it really is in a rainforest, so for those looking for something a bit different, and does not mind...

We had been to Permai RR in the month of Nov 2014, this was our last stay in Borneo. We had book a cottage room, as we had made the booking online and Treehouse accommodation is not for booking online. However upon reaching they shifted us to a Treehouse accommodation (TH 9). It was a wonderful experience, the accommodation is...

Our two night stay in the #2 treehouse was an experience not to miss. Feeling the beach breeze going to bed and overlooking the water in the morning was truely spectacular. The #2 seemed to have one of the best views so try and ask for this one if possible. The other accomodation (cabins) were tucked into the jungle without...

My family attended a wedding in Kuching last weekend. After the wedding we headed to Permai Rainforest Resort for our family gathering.

The Pamai Rainforest Resort is not your usual place to stay. It's an Eco friendly resort at the end of the road on the Damai Peninsula not far from Kuching. Don't go there if you're looking for a 5 star beach resort with all the trimmings but do go if you want a great location in the rainforest with wildlife...

Stayed in their 6 bedded, Cabin #17. The place is no doubt in a jungle, but for the price paid, it should've been better. When checked-in, the toilet floor is littered with some kind of animal droppings, blackish pellets like. We had to rinse whole toilet floor with bidet!!

If you feel like to escape from the modern city and find a place to give yourself a relax and peaceful mind, you must consider about Permai Rainforest Resort!
