【Review】Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa MalaysiaMalaysia

Surrounded by tropical rainforest and located only 10 minutes from Gunung Mulu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa is a celebration of nature. Rooms are designed to resemble traditional Borneo longhouses and are connected by wooden walkways, bringing the hotel and nature closer together.

Booking

entrance at mulu marriott resort & spa

We stayed two nights in the only 5-star hotel in Mulu at the Marriott, which has a completely different atmosphere than the Marriott Resort in Miri.

As the hotel is located near the UNESCO World Heritage Site, it tends to be fully booked on holidays and on weekends, so you may not be able to get a room unless you make a reservation early!

Check-In

A lorry will pick you up from the airport according to the arrival time of your flight. This lorry was previously used.

The resort is just across the bridge.

Arrival time was earlier than the check-in time of 2:00 p.m., but everyone on the same flight seemed to check in early and smoothly. Some of them headed for the cave tour right after check-in.

The large king size bed was soft and fluffy, the perfect bed to recover from the tour!

In the drawer, a capsule coffee and tea(Lipton) set were provided.

The bathroom was spacious, with separate bathtub and shower rooms. However, the hot water runoff was poor and it was difficult to store hot water in the bathtub!

bath amenities in the mulu marriott resort & spa

Toothbrush, shower cap, shaving kit, sewing kit, body cream and shoe mitt are provided.

Facility

The pool was kept clean and free of any insects or fallen leaves, despite being in a tropical rainforest! It also had a jacuzzi, so it would be a good place to relax after the tour finish.

If you don’t walk enough on the tour, you can also exercise in the gym’s aerobics in front of nature.

Dinner at Marriott Cafe

There is no restaurant near the hotel, so most guests will probably have dinner at the Marriott Cafe, the only restaurant at the resort.

There seems to be a buffet every night, but you can also order a la carte meals.

Breakfast

Due to the location of the hotel, food is limited and there is not a large variety for breakfast, but we had Malay, Chinese, and International buffet.
