Adventure in Treehouse

Situated in forest. Friendly and helpful staff. Sea View
I must start by saying I would definitely return. The accommodation by its very nature is basic but comfortable - good size bedroom and bathroom. Balcony facing the sea, kettle etc. for making drinks. The aircon was a godsend as it was very hot whilst we were there although we did find that opening the windows so that the breeze blew through worked well. All windows have fly screens so don't have to worry about the mosquitoes. This is an eco resort and was very popular with youth groups as well as us more 'senior' travellers. At the time of our visit I have to be honest and say that the tree houses could do with some maintenance and upgrading. The linen and towels had seen better days (but they were clean) and the fridges need replacing. That said, it did look like work was being started on some of them. The staff were great in advising regarding trips and particularly helpful when a crisis back home meant assisting us with phone calls.

Review of Permai Rainforest Resort - The Tree Hous

The location and the seaview.
We were disappointed with the Tree house mainly because they needed maintenance and were tired looking. The bed sheets were badly stained and old looking and the pillows were moldy. Part of the roof on the balcony was falling apart. The air conditioning was very effective and made it more comfortable and the showers were adequate.

A night at the treehouse

The privacy of treehouse, the sunset and the sound of waves.
It was annoying at first when the key doesn't match the room. But after that was resolved, it was a bit magical, being away from the busy city and inside a jungle beside the beach. Serenity and tranquility. One of the best stay to rewind.

Beware of activities booking

Nice location in the forest and close to the beach
I picked this hotel because of the many activities (mangrove tour, zipline, night walk etc)that could be done there compared to surrounding hotels. I booked for two nights and arrived around 5 pm the first day. When I asked to booked activities, I have been told by reception that it could no longer be booked after 5pm. When I went back the day after, I have been told that all activities must be booked at least 1 day in advance. I then could not do any activities and spent two days of doing close to nothing.

An awesome experience and worth the splurge

It is a tree house, it is by the water, you see wildlife
We loved it. Although the smoke from the Sumatra fires made the outlook very hazy - we could imagine how nice it would normally be. The South China Sea is really hot - not refreshing but still nice to splash around in. Loved the restaurant and it was nice to hang around and relax while using the wifi. The rooms ar plain and simple - with a nice natural wood finish. The windows and doors are a bit squewed, so there are some gaps for the bugs to get in. Only problem is the shower runs across the toilet floor into the drain - a bit wet under foot.
