Permai Rainforest Retreat: amazing location

The Permai offers a unique stay in the tropical rainforest. There is a chioice of accomadation; Treehouse(2 people), Cabins(2-6 people) and Longhouses(dorm style). All of these are surrounded by the jungle on one side, and a lovely beach on the other. Each accomadation is seperate from one another, and it feels like you are isolated. We originally booked the air conditioned cabin, but it was pretty old and dark. So we chose the non air-conditioned room cabin, which was a lot newer and brighter. We had to use mosquito nets, because none of the windows were sealed shut. The rooms felt like they had not been used for ages, but they were perfectly bearable. The sounds of insects in the night was deafening, but very nice. There is a small pool that is fed by a mountain stream. The Permai is pretty expensive for its standard, but it was cheaper than any other place around the Damai Beach area. It was empty, apart from 2 other people, because we went in January, the tourist off-season.

Surrounded by rainforest

Damai Lagoon Resort

There are a couple of hotels at Damai Beach we stayed at the Damai Lagoon Resort, which in my opinion was the best one.

The rooms were not exceptional, but the swimming pool was fantastic, with a mini-beach and waterfalls. The best thing is that it was always empty and quiet.
