Marriott unveils first Rainforest Resort in Asia Pacific at Mulu, Borneo

Marriott International, Inc. is proud to announce the recent opening of its first rainforest resort – 101-room Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa, in Asia Pacific at Mulu in Sarawak, Malaysia. This marks the second property under the flagship of Marriott Hotels brand on the island of Borneo and the eighth for Marriott International in Malaysia.

Mulu is world renowned for some of the most remarkable untouched rainforests and largest natural cave formations in the world. It is one of Malaysia’s four UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Inspired by the ‘Marriott Modern’ design philosophy, Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa has fully transformed the former 20 year old Royal Mulu Resort and creatively built in style based on the alignment of ethnic long houses. Groups of rooms are connected by wooden walkways that allow guests to feel as much a part of this rainforest as the native Belian people along the banks of the Melinau River.

The newly enhanced resort offers elegant and spacious rooms and suites with private balconies, showcasing scenic Melinau River and the greenery of the rainforest. Coupled with state-of-the-art facilities and services, these rooms provide an elevated standard of design and decor that reflects comfort and polished style. All bathrooms of Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa are accessorised with Thann amenities inviting guests to linger and spoil themselves.

The rainforest resort has been conceptualised to meet the varied tastes of guests. With more than 1,000sqm of functional event and meeting space including a pillar-less ballroom that can accommodate up to 200 people, a business centre boardroom, a multi-functional room and a riverfront garden, Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa is an ideal choice for meetings, conferences and other memorable events.

Indulgence has never looked this good at Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa. It features a range of wellness options for travellers with an outdoor 15-meter lap swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym overlooking the rainforest, a well-known five-star Mandara Spa and an activities centre.
