Stayed with my family (with one child) in one of the treehouses. While the accommodation can be improved, the experiences we had at Permai Rainforest Resort are great. My daughter can't stop talking about it and she looks forward to our next stay. We saw a proboscis monkey and a family of silverleaf monkeys from our balcony. We frolicked at the two beaches they have as well as splashed around in the jungle pool. Maybe we try the trail next time and maybe even try the kayaks. The cafe is overlooking the sea. They offer a simple menu but the food are tasty and the people are nice, friendly and accommodating. The resort is over 30 years old but the rainforest it is set in is 70 million years old which is simply amazing!

Worst place to visit to not even to stay in. Dissappointed with the staffs, no staff to handle our request only one housekeeper and one technician and they even got discrimination by this rude owner. not even got intercom and no security guard at all. Very poor in facilities, leaking, electricity poorly maintained, Dirty and and cafe serve bad taste. You may have other hotels and other places in kuching to visit to except this one. Not recommeded at all. I wish i cude give negative rate

Booked a treehouse for a long weekend which was great but in need of some gentle renovation to keep the accommodation in keeping with nearby competition. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The on-site restaurant, the feeding tree, has a beautiful outlook over the ocean and is a perfect spot to view the sunset. The amenities on offer at the resort will suit hikers, beach lovers and adventure seekers. Would recommend hiring a car to give you the freedom to head into Kuching as the shuttle bus provided isn't particularly convenient and grab/taxi charges will become expensive. Overall, a great weekend getaway.

Nice spot but our room was infested with rats, ants and mould. There were food crumbs every and the fridge stank of rotten sambal. This place would be amazing if they put some effort into maintaining it, or at least cleaning it.

We stayed in one of their tree houses and loved the experience. The resort is nestled in the jungle right on the coast and we saw a couple of proboscis monkeys swinging through the trees right in front of our tree house as well as an endemic Borneo skink on our balcony. We did the jungle hike to a nearby waterfall which was a highlight of our Malaysia vacation. The room also included breakfast and dinner making the price even more attractive. But don't expect modern 5-star accommodations, that's not what this place is about. Think of it as jungle camping but with a roof over your head, a toilet and air-conditioning :-). If you have the right expectations, this hotel is a good choice.
