Undiscovered charm
Staying in a Permai treehouse was a unique experience. It’s true that the houses are a bit dated but I believe they are in the throes of a refurbishment programme. They are beautifully situated with the rainforest in one side and the sea on the other and going to sleep with the sound of the waves and the crickets was very soothing! The pace of life at Permai is much slower that we are used to and you need to just relax and be patient, the staff are delightful and do their best in their own time. We were however a bit surprised that there was no alcohol served at all on site and thought that should have been mentioned in the booking process. The resort was keen to promote their trips and we took an evening boat excursion supposedly to view dolphins, crocs etc - unfortunately we did not come across any. Not their fault of course but we would have loved to have had some information during the trip about where we were, the local environment etc. Permai still feels like a relatively undiscovered holiday destination and this is undoubtedly part of its overall charm.

Special place in nature
Superb location. LOVED the jungle pool, LOVED the beach, LOVED having meals overlooking the beach. LOVED being surrounded by nature. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Seeing the Silver Leaf Monkey was really cool. For use, this is what took a bit of adjustment: wildflife in the cabin (giant ants, a large spider, a very fast little lizard). Not complaining - this was part of "one with nature" charm. One thing that could have been better: since there is no AC in the cabins, one must use the ceiling fans - except they were very DIRTY, a thick black layer of dust covering the white wings of each fan. Well, our family got into the cabin late in the evening, and, before turning the fans on, we took some toilet paper and cleaned each one.

The place is amazing, being in the middle of the nature is truly appreciable. The activities are diverse. I was disappointed by something: the room was not clean (treehouse). We paid quite a price and expected the place to be clean. Unfortunately the room and mini kitchen and bathroom didn't seem to be really cared off. Why? The curtains were really sticky and dirty (metallic ones in the bathroom), the towels had some yellow stains on it, the toilet paper had apparently been under some water and dried again (how can you give this to clients...), there was some dust in the corners. The place is really nice overall and I don;t get why the tenants don't take a real care of it, specially in a place being in the middle of the jungle and by the sea, it needs even more extra care.
