We stayed 3 nights at Permai Resort. Above all, we enjoyed the beach the best.. the sun was shining and water was blue, the breeze and sand made it all lovely. Because it was a weekend, it was quite crowded (people who dont stay there can pay an entrance fee to walk thru and use the beach). By Monday, it was quiet and we had the beach all to ourselves. We had the very first tree house, which I think has the best view of the beach (altho to catch the sunset in its entirety, you should watch it from the Cafe). For those who are used to tasty local food, the Cafe offered mediocre fare (and price, on the high side. We brought back Kentucky Fried Chicken and Nasi Beriyani when we went to Kuching town during the day and ate it for dinner in the room!). Certain dishes were nice, ie the banana cooler, fried rice & rojak. Ask for beach towels early, it took up to 20 mins to be delivered. Hearing the waves and seeing the moon in the sky at night is priceless.. beware tho, the tree house trembles under your footing, so avoid vigorous movement! The room is devoid of all forms of entertainment as well, like a TV/radio, so its the best time to catch up on sleep as you will likely be in bed by 9pm LOL!
