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.

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

Staycation”

Booked a night at the Tree House. The balcony with wooden chairs overlooking the sea with shady trees was indeed a bliss. The room AC was on full blast without any remote control (could've ask from reception but it was a long walk away from the room) so middle of the night we had to turn it off and open the window to let air in. It was indeed cooling as we are inside the jungle. The ceiling fan did help a bit. While we were there, beach and jungle pool access were not available due to the CMCO. Hiking in the jungle trails were permitted and both of us hiked to the Blue Pool the next morning but didn't get to dip in the water as there were too many hikers. Food at the resort cafe was relatively okay. My wife had the spaghetti bolognese (quite salty and sour for our taste but I did like the crispy garlic bread that came with it) and I had the fish & chips (more like french fries) which was okay. The vanilla & chocolate milkshakes were excellent. Overall, we had a relaxing stay.

Great time in treehouse ”

After reading negative reviews, we were worried. We should not have been. We got a jungle hut experience surrounded by wildlife. The food was good. The staff were great and very happy to help. If you are after 5 star accommodation, this is not it. If you are after comfortable time in jungle and easy walking distance to cultural village 30mins drive from Kuching then this is it. Highly recommend organised trips from Permai - and if possible night time walk around resort to see hidden wildlife - guides excellent
