My family and I loved the location as its located at the rainforest area. The resort being next to the sea and in forest was amazing. We loved every bit of it. Would definitely go back again. Hospitality was good and the staffs were very helpful. The food served was good too.

We started our 2 weeks holidays in the resort and extended our original 3 days to 6 nights. We were staying in the cottage first and moved to the treehouse next. We were here in February, which is still rainy, hence it was half empty. It would probably be less fun when crowded with people. We liked the restaurant- buffet...

Overall pretty dissapointing stay for a 3 star hotel. We were poorly guided through the reception. Bed sheet and pillows had weird smell and the floor were pretty dusty. The activities is dependant on the waves, and the waves were pretty rough most of the day.

She told us we could wait until the next day to book the high ropes course and it wouldn't be necessary to book that evening. The next morning, we tried to go to the beach only to be told we had to book the...

Very relaxing couple of days spent at Permai, chilling out on the beaches, walking the unguided jungle trek and eating in the Feeding Tree. We stayed in treehouse 5 which lived up to expectation with a sea view and when the monkeys paid us a morning visit the day we were leaving. It seems some of the treehouses are undergoing...

Very friendly and nice staff. The resort located in a very intimate area of the rainforest. Our treehouse was just infrint if the sea, so the view was stunning. During night we could hear the sound of the sea. Only a bit disappointed of the cleaning part, and i think its a bit overpriced.
