This hotel consists of six rooms around a common hallway in a longhouse. It is attractively presented, and is a servicable alternative for those who cannot get a room at the park or the resort. But be advised: the mechanical systems of the house are problematic. Electrical problems meant that most of the rooms had no hot water the week... More

We had booked a mini-trip to Mulu through a 3rd party so didn't choose where we stayed. The lodge was lovely and the room clean and comfortable. However it seemed to be staffed by 2 nice ladies who turned up to cook breakfast and dinner and disappeared in between (food was great by the way). Also there was no electricity... More

We were looking for a good stay at Mulu for our visit in Sept 2009. All the sites related to Mulu directed us to Royal Mulu Resort, which I thought was a very commercialized, mass market resort. On further research I stumbled upon the Matumau lodge and thought it was the kind of place I would love to stay at.... More

This is a small guesthouse - just five rooms, right next to one of the big rivers that flows through the national park. The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. The... More

Wow. Matumau Lodge is absolutely fantastic. It is such a shame that it is not more widely known about. The lodge is located 50m from the airport , beside the river in a small clearing. It is very well designed, tastefully decorated and expertly run. Helen and her staff cooked us the most amazing food. Every meal contained a variety... More

This accomodation enabled our group of six adults and three youths to take advantage of being in the rainforest without having to sleep rough. On the contrary, this environmentally friendly lodge made our holidays a treat: what a pleasure after the long walks to Deer Cave, Clear Water, Camp 5 (and even to the summit of Mulu for the most...
