We arrived 15 May 2022, this is my 2nd visit after so many years. The resort now comes alive with Covid ending. This is very good for the staff, workers and local people who did nt have income during Covid, let's support them .The hotel really lived up to 5 stars status, the bedroom especially bathroom is beautiful, comfort, spacious and absolutely clean. Please bring your own slippers for your conviences, you will need it as you walk to the pool and the swim at the Clear Water Cave river, not to be missed. Since the hotel now had enough guests, we were served buffet bf and dinner. The meals are really good and quality. Thumbs up to the resort staffs from Reception, Restuarant, cleaners, Sweepers and Tour guides for their good service. The tour guides for the Caves tours are doing a good job and taking good care of the travellers. Appreciation to veteran tour guide, Mr. Ting, he is very knowlegeable and we learnt a lot from him. About the hotel, the pathway tentrance to rooms with both sides having bamboo trees are stunning. If you are elderly, the rooms at Block 6 is far away but for youngers is no big deal

mulu marriot provides the perfect respite in between your hikes in Mulu national park. The rooms were very spacious and modern, The beds i used were really soft, one of the softest i've slept in. The facilities were excellent and luxurious. As i purchased a room & board package, I can say the food is excellent & the portions were very generous despite the isolated location. My favourites include the garlicky nasi goreng, the thick beef burger, and the traditional ayam pansuh. The highlights of the buffet were the noodle soup (breakfast), the walnut almond tart, the beef stew, the steamed lamb, and ikan bakar. For those who are worried, there is Wi-Fi in the public areas and i can confirmed its very high speed. i can even watch Netflix there. And calls and sms are still available in your rooms But the highlight of the this hotel for me is the staff. They were truly hospitable. I want to personally thank steve duloi for his excellent service of being our guide in the national park and daglish who took care of us in the M cafe honestly, I can't think of anything to criticize them for as I had an amazing time and it was one of the best trips i ever had.

This was our first return visit after the Covid movement control orders and the hotel with its facilities and service did not disappoint. All the COVID SOPs are well embedded and staff and guests were seen wearing face masks even in the open air public areas and walk ways. As usual, Ben the hotel manager was there to greet his guests at the airport and after a 5 minute ride in the hotel truck we arrived at the hotel where a temperate check and vaccination status check was conducted and verified by hotel management. This time we did not book any cave tours since we did all of them during previous visits. We did, however, register at park HQ and ventured on an unguided tour to the Paku waterfall on the second day and booked the skywalk excursion on the third day. Mulu is always magical as one enters the twilight of the rainforest with its enchanted sounds, the smell of vegetation and primal atmosphere. However, Mulu and the Marriott are more than caves and bats. The rest of our time we lazed around the pool or our own balcony. The mornings in Mulu are quite cool and a hot cup of coffee at the veranda of our suite at around 6.30am in the first light is a most relaxing experience. Flo and Intan gave a great massage at the hotel own Mandara spa and Mathew and Daglish were ever present at the Marriott Café and pool. Congratulations to Ben and JJ and the team for keeping the hotel running at such a high level of service with a much reduced team due to the pandemic related cut backs. All the staff went out of their way to make guests feel special and Brigitte upon check out noticed our Penan rattan bangles which we bought at the local market and thanked us for supporting the local community during hard times. I can wholeheartedly recommend the hotel as a destination by itself. For anyone who wants to travel again after so many months of lockdowns but doesn’t want to risk overseas travel yet, Mulu Park and the Marriott Resort would be a perfect choice.

This was our third hotel that we stayed in during our 2 week trip in Borneo. The shuttle bus was waiting at the airport upon our arrival. When arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by members of staff and a welcome drink with a cold, refreshing towel. We were taken to our room and when booking the hotel I mentioned that our holiday was a 30th birthday celebration. We were shocked when we walked through the door and balloons and banners were everywhere and a cake was made out of towels. The room was very spacious and clean and the bathroom was incredible looking out onto the rain forest. The bed was possibly one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The whole hotel was very clean and tidy and staff were very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is a luxury amenity and is much needed after a walk in the rainforest! Breakfast in the morning was very good and there was plenty of different options to suit different tastes. We went to the bar in the evening and had some cocktails which were delicious. We were even joined by a friendly toad. Transport to and from the national park is easy with the shuttle buses which the hotel provide free of charge. We would 100% return to this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone that would like to stay in a more luxury hotel during their stay in Mulu.

Was there with family for holiday, Mulu is an interesting place and a must to visit in a lifetime. & Mulu Marriott is the best place to stay if you wish to pamper yourself and your family after a long day venturing all those famous caves. Their staffs are friendly & helpful, the rooms are big, clean, with all necessary facilities & with a small balcony facing forests. The buffet breakfast was so tasty with reasonably choices. Will certainly stay there again in future.

Unique hotel, tastefully designed in the style of Iban longhouses with high quality interiors and amenities. Almost all staff are from local families, well-trained and exceptionally friendly. The Mulu national park is world-famous for all the right reasons as a sustainable ecotourist experience. The park management and guides are friendly and informative and the trails, caves, canopy walkways and river longboat excursions are a unique and important experience for young and old alike. If you fly to Mulu from Kuching it becomes apparent just how much of this essential ecosystem has been sacrificed to palm oil.

This was our 4th hotel in the space of 2 weeks and it was absolutely amazing. We arrived on the truck from the airport and had been upgraded to a Suite, the room was out of this world, huge living room, bedroom, balcony and bathroom with a bath looking out into the rainforest. The facilities are great, nice gym, pool was stunning, the hotel is set upon stilts in the middle of the forest. Food was good, decent wine list, not overly expensive for how remote you are but they do run out of a lot of items as it all had to be flown in and frequently gets spoilt, a menu which changes on a regular basis would make more sense here to avoid disappointment. The setting in Mulu is breath taking, we arranged 2 trips through the hotel, they have their own guides, provide packed lunches for you and will even get your wrist bands for the park entrance. Both guides were brilliant but Phillipi was local and was outstanding. We did all 4 of the show caves, the bat exodus, we were about to give up then Phillipi saw them start to leave. We then walked back in the dark, with Phillipi spotting different animals/insects and reptiles on then way. Don’t expect to see lots of wildlife here but don’t let that put you off, it’s so stunning.

The hotel room is clean and the staff is nice. The food is good and affordable it is almost perfect until I was told that the hotel had ran out of tooth brush and toothpaste. What upset was that they didn't try to help to do something and simply just state the fact.

I've stayed for 4 nights in this resort. I was grateful that we were given the entire unit with 2 rooms and a massive balcony. Our room has awesome views facing the river and lots of trees. I find it therapeutic to listen to the sounds of the jungle. The room is really spacious and comfortable. All the furniture and devices work well. All the staff were friendly, warm and courteous. The food in the restaurant is halal-certified and the breakfast buffet was tasty. The hotel provides free shuttle from/to the airport and also the nearby park office if you need to explore Mulu National Park. I would like to convey my appreciation to Chef Salim who shared his stories during one of our dinner at the restaurant. Not forgetting Mr Dalglish who diligently served us well every morning during breakfast. I will definitely come back here again. Tip: There are some nearby local restaurants across the bridge but I have not tried them as I'm not sure if they are Halal-Certified :)
