Refreshing, tranquil, and eco-friendly best describes this property. Surrounded by the Borneo Rainforest on one side and being located on the shores of the South China Sea on the other side, Permai Rainforest Resort is a tropical haven. Travel by foot to the mystical Mount Santubong and discover a whole new world of the Borneo Rainforest. This property aims to give you an inimitable rainforest experience. Not too difficult to access, guests can take a 30-minute drive to the north of Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, and you’ll find this location. Permai Rainforest Resort is an idyllic hideaway that is perfect for both the adventurous and the leisure travelers. You’ll find tree houses that are perched up in the air and single story cabins as well. Try exhilarating activities like jungle trekking, or take trips into the forest and opt for high ropes courses, sea kayaking, evening mangrove cruises, and dolphin watching! Permai Rainforest Resort is a wonderful retreat that has rich biodiversity waiting to be explored.

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.
