The best place to stay while in Mulu is without a doubt the Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa. It is a 5 star hotel surrounded by lush rainforest.
The lobby area adopt an open space concept. The lobby is very spacious and beautifully decorated. With suitable sofas around, one could easily get some work done as this is the only area with Wifi and phone connection.
The internet speed is surprisingly fast. ?I measured the speed at 64Mbps. That is even faster than most of the hotels in urban area.
One would have to walk on raised wooden walkway to get to the rooms. It is an enjoyable walk while enjoying the surrounding mother nature. It is always advisable to have an umbrella or poncho ready as one will get drenched should it rain here.
The room is big and luxurious. It is fitted with air conditioner and ceiling fan. The room features luxury bedding to ensure guests have a good rest while staying here. There will be hardly any internet or phone connection once in the room.
The same can be said about the size of the bathroom. There is a bath tub too which is ideal to relax the body after a hard day exploring the national park and the caves.
The room also have a private balcony with picturesque view. I wish there are mosquito netting in way of the access to the balcony so as to allow fresh air into the room. One will run a risk of letting the outside insects into the room by leaving the balcony door open. I was bitten by a big sized mosquito while letting the door open.
The swimming pool here is about the right size to take a dip for both adults and children.
Marriott Cafe is the only place to dine here. The service and food choices here simply blew me away.
The event room here is also excellent with good internet connection. The lighting, projector and sound system is on par with other leading hotels at the urban area.
One could also head to the spa to refresh the body and mind while in Mulu. It was not operational at the time of writing. Probably due to its recent opening to the public after the pandemic.
While staying here, I also used the MySejahtera hotspot tracker and there have been no reported case here in the last 14 days
