Marriott International has opened its first rainforest resort in Asia Pacific at Mulu in Sarawak, Malaysia. The opening of the 101-room Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa marks the second property under the flagship of Marriott Hotels brand on the Island of Borneo and the eighth for Marriott International in Malaysia.

Mr. Robert Stark, Market Vice President - Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore for Marriott International said, “Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa is an exciting addition to the Marriott Hotel portfolio. This property embodies the brand’s drive to enable its guests to Travel Brilliantly. Mulu is such a unique destination and has a great potential for hospitality growth, making it a second-to-none choice for the Marriott Hotels brand.”

He further added “The Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa will set new standards in offering guests a rejuvenating resort experience – a respite from hustling and bustling life.”

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. Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa is further complemented by the breath-taking natural splendor along the banks of the Melinau River.

As a part of Marriott Hotel’s transformation, the brand’s signature Greatroom and the resorts River Bar are an open and flexible space with sofa chairs and tables of different sizes, height and design arranged imaginatively for guests to either revel, enjoying drinks and food surrounded by the refreshing green rainforest or simply for quick group discussion be it for business or personal.
