Plenty of hotel rooms in Mukah, Sarawak

Many people associate food, shelter, rest and hospitality with home. However, on some occasions we are forced to seek for these services elsewhere. A worker with insufficient time to return home for lunch may have it in the factory canteen or a local cafe, a businessman having an appointment many miles from home may put up in a hotel overnight; a family wanting a break may take a holiday in a guest house or a caravan, a student wishing to follow a course at a college some distance from home may stay in a hall of residence or `digs’.

Many people are actually involved in the accommodation market as there is a growing need for such service. In fact, anyone who travels more than half a day’s journey from home needs accommodation. The type of accommodation varies according to the individuals.

As the fastest growing town in the state, Mukah has been successful in addressing the shortage of hotel rooms with the setting up of high-class and budget hotels in the past few years.

The star hotels in this town are Kingwood Hotel and Kingwood Resort while the budget hotels are Wyoming Hotel, Mandarin Hotel, Royal Inn, Mukah Inn, Qintai Inn, King Inn, Sarina Hotel, Sri Umpang Hotel, Harmony Resort and Kaul Beach Resort.

Located about 12 kms from the town centre, the four-star Kingwood Resort Mukah, is referred to one of the landmarks of Mukah.
In economic term, the completion and commencement of business of the 99-room and suite resort about three years ago, was a milestone in the development of the local tourism and hospitality industries in the division.

Officially opened by the Chief Minister Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud on March 24, 2006, Kingwood Resort is the pioneer in Mukah to provide international class accommodation, dinning, meeting and recreational facilities and services to the locals as well as foreign tourists.

It has an all day halal restaurant serving local, Chinese and western cuisine, a grand ballroom which can accommodate 1,500 people, two function rooms for 100 and 80 persons respectively, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, indoor games room, sea view terrace for barbeque and parties and 200 car parking bays.

All the rooms have private balcony offering a panoramic vista of the South China Sea, the setting sun and the country side. 80% of the resort’s staff are Melanaus who are well known for their hard work, hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness.
