We stayed at the Royal Mulu resort and recommend the park and the hotel It is a very different experience in a beautiful area of the world. The hotel fits into the rustic scenery but has modern amenities and is lovely. We stayed in an executive suite which is perfect for a couple over the age of 65!!!
