Permai Rainforest Resort is brilliant!
Best place I went to in Sarawak. We stayed in a treehouse and it was a delight. High up in the forest canopy, and right next to the ocean. The view from our balcony was superb, across the sea. There were monkeys and birds right next to us, and no need for aircon at night as you can open up all the windows (screened) to let the breeze through.
The place was clean, tidy and well equipped.
The staff were friendly and helpful, but not creepy fake nice like they are in some of the bigger resorts. I got the impression they really cared about this place.
They kept the grounds and local forest neat and litter-free.
The jungle trails are a delight - complete with a waterfall, rope bridge and several streams. It all feels very authentic.
And to the reviewer who said the forest walk freaked their kids . . What? What kind of kids are these? Sure, there are big ants, and monkeys, and thick vegetation. It's a rainforest. Not a theme park. What were you expecting - Disneyworld?
If you want a taste of the equatorial rainforest - this is the place to go. I'd recomend it to anyone who wants to avoid the big bland boring resorts down the road. Five stars!
