We stayed in a garden bungalow inside Mulu National Park and couldn't have been more comfortable. The room was private and quiet with good A/C, comfortable beds and a good bathroom. An excellent breakfast was provided at the restaurant, which also provides excellent food for lunch and dinner at a reasonable price. The park staff are very helpful in arranging... More

The tours and guides are 5star! Excellent knowledge, wonderful people, we wish we had longer to learn more from them! We stayed in a garden lodge which was clean and lovely and the outdoor terrace was a wonderful bonus for spotting wildlife. The food is superb! A highlight of our trip and highly recommended!

It's hard to find a place worth splurging on in Sabah (where we live) so when I saw the photos of the bungalows I thought it was worth it. But I wouldn't do it again. It was nice, but just kind of plain - like a room with a bed. No decor, no shampoo even, and right in the middle... More

If you are going to Mulu, stay in the park! That way you are close to everything. We stayed 1 night in a longhouse and 3 nights in a cottage and I think we had the best cottage (banyan tree), best because the wifi at the cafe reached it, weakly but enough for email. The cottages are roomy and have... More

We stayed at the national park for 3 nights in Longhouse II and Longhouse I - 2 nights in Longhouse I and 1 night in Longhouse II. Don't expect a luxurious stay for the price. We paid around $65 a night for both places. The interior of Longhouse I is a lot nicer than Longhouse II. The bathroom is nothing... More

This review is for the hotel only, not the natural park, I have a separate review for that one. The hotel part of the park is average, but it's your best option when visiting Mulu National Patk. The hotel although offers you an amazing interaction with nature and is the central part of the park activities, it lacks of attention... More

Staying in Mulu was one of the highlights for me of our group tour to Borneo. Considering that there is virtually no road network and that provisions get flown in, I really enjoyed staying at the lodge. The accommodation bungalows were individual, air conditioned, spacious and equipped with verandahs. The staff were very pleasant and the service was very good.... More

Amazing place if you like nature treks (many manageable for us - we're unfit and don't walk much). Guides are extremely good, tours are well worth doing. Expect to walk a lot. Enjoyed all the walks, especially the night walk. Longboat trips on river were also very nice. Accom is comfortable with good air conditioning - functional really, not flashy... More

We stayed in Mulu National Park headquarters in a garden villa having booked for 3 days/2 nights. When you arrive at Mulu airport there is a local service that costs MYR 5 to drive a couple of minutes down the road to the national park headquarters, which is also where the accommodation is located. No taxis. We loved all the... More

I just got back from a trip to Borneo and this was the best place in our itinerary. This park is a hidden gem and I hope it remains secluded (there are several developments going up around the main road from the airport to the park which causes a bit of worry of yiu think how fast things are getting...
