Bucket list matterial”

We had a great stay at one of the tree houses. It's a really unique experience, when you just relaxing on the balcony, and the monkeys, and squrriels living their life around you. The room was clean, with fantastic views(and sounds, the forest, the waves), AC, refigerator. There is no wifi, only at the restaurant, and the reception. We did one of the trails(waterfall), which was great, with some chellenging parts(hanging bridge, tree bridges, and there is a really steep part), and we met with some monkeys and spotted a lemur. Saddly our last two days rainy. when its rains, you do not have to much to do here(we take a trip to the nearby village). The restaurant has great food, with good prices, and there is a littel shop at the reception with some basics. Getting to the resort could be little tricky, because the shuttle service is not operating. You can get a Grab, but in the way back its harder. We managed to get one prety quick, because the cultural village opens around ~9am, so there is a chance some Grab drivers hang around between 9am-10am.

On Nature's Doorstep”

What was the highlight of my short stay? Nature! The trees, the plants, fungi, the animals, Santubang Bay, the waves and the sand - In this worldwide pandemic nature has reclaimed the resort and visitors can be restored and re-energised in its quiet peacefulness. The beaches were mostly clean with only the occasional bit of washed up plastic and with lots of shade. They were perfect and taking an occasional dip to cool down. The jungle pool with its refreshing and running mountain water was equally invigorating and refreshing. The clear green water reflects the surrounding forest. It was and is the perfect place for escaping the online frenzy.

Reviewed August 26, 2021

Dear Mary, Thank you for the lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed what is absolutely the best feature of our resort: Mother Nature. Happy to read that you enjoyed being among the diverse flora and fauna as well as our rain forest denizens such as the Proboscis monkeys and you managed to spend time at our wonderful 2 beach areas and our unique Jungle Pool which is fed by natural mountain water. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you back here again. Best regards, Yega and The Permai Team
