tour details

Depart from Kuching and proceed to Permai Rainforest Resort – a small eco-resort set in pristine rainforest. Here, you may see the 3 species of monkeys that roam the resort’s premises. A night walk offers an unforgettable new perspective. Next, head out for some sea kayaking along the coast of the Santubong Peninsula to reach the small remote beach of Teluk Pasir. Here, you’ll set up your own camp and start a fire before spending the night. You’ll later enjoy jungle trekking in pristine primary rainforest & embark on a mangrove sunset cruise along the mangrove forest of Kuching Wetlands National Park. Watch out for proboscis monkeys & the estuarine crocodile, then admire the fireflies that light up the mangrove trees like Christmas trees. You’ll then relax with free time before departure.

12:30 hrs. - Pick-up from the city hotel and travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Permai Rainforest Resort, located about 25 km north of Kuching. Permai Rainforest Resort is a small eco-resort set in pristine rainforest located on the shores of the South China Sea, and at the foot of Mount Santubong. Carefully designed to minimize impact on the natural environment, it offers a great rainforest experience. The 10 treehouses, which are built on stilts 20 feet above the ground, offer you the unique experience of sleeping amongst the canopy of the trees and waking to the sound of the sea lapping against the shore. Besides the treehouses the resort offers 23 cabins spread out through the resort surrounded by lush forest vegetation.
After check-in, the afternoon is free at leisure to use the many facilities of the resort or simply relax at the beach. If you are lucky you get a first glimpse of one of the three different species of monkeys that do occasionally roam in the resort's premises.
In the evening, you will venture on a night walk. Exploring the rainforest in the dark, is a truly different experience as many animals and insects in the tropics are nocturnal and can only be seen at night! Your guide will show you how to hold your torch light in order to spot the reflection of eyes in the dark forest.
Return to your accommodation after this thrilling experience. Dinner at the resort.
