Stayed last month in treehouse #10. It has a little bit of a view of the ocean (probably more than the other treehouses), but my guess is they want to 'hide' them so there is quite a bit of foliage between you and the water. A shame as it would be a spectacular sunset view. The tides were greater than...

Room: This place was my favourite place that we stayed during our 20 days in Borneo. Being in up in the treehouse was an awesome experience. We stayed in treehouse ten, as a friend had told us it was the best one, and it certainly was. This treehouse was the last one in the line, and has a double balcony,...

This is not a luxury hotel. although it was comfortable enough, but its location is so special and its concept so original that I would highly recommend it. We stayed in a tree house with a balcony and a view over the South China Sea. On the other side the rain forest climbed steeply up to Mount Santubong. We enjoyed...

We spent 4 days/3 nights in a lovely treehouse in Permai Rainforest Resort. The food was nice, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the well organized tours they offer and a mustdo is the exciting inhouse jungle trail which is in the backgarden of the resort! We really enjoyed ourselves! The treehouse itself was something really special....

If you are looking for a resort to relax, eat great food, sit by the pool and enjoy quick service then go elsewhere. This place is great for its purpose, with rainforest at its backdrop and sea in front, its a great place to spend few days with friends and family. The rooms are basic but the point of coming...

We stayed here for two nights in February, and were very happy with the tree house. It rained one day, but it was rather pleasant to sit on the covered porch and watch the ocean, and see monkeys go by in the trees. My one complaint is about the restaurant. The food which is more expensive than your average malaysian...

2 night stay at Treehouse #4 of an 8 stop independent 3 week trip through SE Asia. Having read and reread reviews here on TA this seemed the best choice at Damai, although we are more luxury oriented travelers. Staying in such a rustic enclave is not our style…. other than clearing a few leaves from the path, nature is...

Loved this place. Stayed in a tree house set amongst the tree tops listening to the waves crash against the shore, watched the wildlife feed amongst the trees. Troop of monkeys on last morning feeding in trees just off our balcony. Had the beach all to ourselves for a day spent swimming in warm if cloudy waters, put that down...

What a wonderful place! We were treated like royalty at this gem of a rainforest resort. Going the first week in Feb was always going to be risky as it’s just at the end of the rainy season. Everyday was wonderfully sunny. Because we were still just outside the busy season, the resort was very quiet. We booked direct with...
