Based on Tripadvisor feedback, we were quite apprehensive about the Permai Rainforest Resort, but...it exceeded all expectations,
We travelled as a family of 5 with 2 young children, and we occupied 2 treetop houses (number 5 and 6). Contrary to previous reviews, we found the tree houses Excellent. They are beatifully laid out, spacious, airconditioned, clean, and with the best location and views in the world. They are really right in the tree tops.
We also found the rest of the resort quite good. We had breakfast and dined in the Rainforest cafe for 3 days, and the food was good, although service was quite erratic.
In terms of other facilities, the jungle pool is a real winner. The clear, clean water really refreshed and is fantastic for the kids to cool down and splash around.
The 2 beaches were OK, not stunning.
We also went on a tour organised by the resort (Bako National Park) which was organised very well. the boatsman knew all the gorgeous places to swim and picnic, and the food provided was really good. All in all a lovely day out.
Last but not least, we used the hotel transportation from Kuching airport. We were met promptly at the airport, and had a nice airconditioned drive to the resort.
So, this resort is a lot better than we expected. Lovely days in Sarawak!
