A charming place with NATURAL.I had a wonderful stay here. Morning breakfast was delightful and full of fruity surprises. The hosts are amazing people.
Not worth the price”
Pretty primitive for the price we got, when better lodges or even hotels were available. Location isn't too close to the park so you will have to take a shuttle there, though it is located next to the river and a beautiful hill. On arrival, we were sold a "travel package" and had nothing to do on the first day, when we could've easily done some walks in the park. Don't take any package offers as it too is overpriced! The same offers are available directly from the park at half the price.
Authentic and cost village living”
There was no need to worry about airport transfer and tour timings. The manager knows the flights and tours available at the National Park inside out. The lodge is 20min walk away from the National Park, so it ensures that visitors are not restricted to the confines of the park. Food options in Mulu is limited, no surprise that the lodge have limited choice, but eating in peace is definite. The rooms provide the essentials, air conditioning is not a must during the night.
Cleanliness to improve”
Bed bug issue. Staffs are kind and helpful.
Cleanliness to improve ”
My hands and legs were having a lot of bed bug bites. Nevertheless, Anil is very helpful and the cafe is good to hang out and have good mountain view. Cafe aunties and drivers staff are very nice and helpful too.
Friendliest staff and decent accommodation”
My friend and I stayed at the Benarat Lodge during our trip in Mulu. Overall, it was a decent lodging (think of Hostel style). Our guide, Duncan fetched us from the airport to the lodge which was situated quite deep within Mulu and around a 10 mins to 15 mins drive from the Mulu National Park. As the lodge was eco-friendly, the generators only run from 6:00pm to 12 midnight daily. The rest of the time the amenities such as Water Heater, Shower, Lights and Fan were solar-powered. The staff at the lodge were undeniably friendly and very accommodating despite not having any WIFI, unless you purchase the local SIM card. Our booking included meals from a nearby family-run restaurant next to the lodge. My friend and I wanted to purchase a bottle of water at the restaurant but it was closed for the evening and we decided to get the water the next day. However, the lodge's manager personally handed us the water at our rooms just a few minutes after we left the restaurant.
Not value for Money”
Booked a Twin Aircon room. There is limited hours for which the aircon is operational: i.e. from 6 pm to midnight. After that the power supply is cut off and cannot even charge handphone.
Loved the place The hotel is a village compound style and in keeping with it's surroundings. Very rural. It was nearly empty when I stayed and the staff knocked themselves out to be helpful. They couldn't do enough for me. Definitely stay here again.
Great but neutral at the same time”
The place no doubt was really beautiful..with the sound of nature surrounding you...some of the staff were friendly not all.The only downfall was that since electricity was limited..every 6pm to 4am we had electricity..after this hours it would be switched off..n its not really a good feeling especially when its humid in the afternoons...and dinner was a lil bit to the expensive side for a bed n breakfast.....a plate of nasi goreng with egg is rm15 which is the cheapest there....apart from this all was great...
Great service lodge”
Highly recommend to people who visit mulu cave, the service is great, the breakfast is fine, facilities are just good enough for visitors.
Nice place and confortable location, relatively close to the park. We didn't buy the package they proposed, and we were left almost out of their care. The lodge kitchen closed without any advice ( you are basically in the middle of nowhere!) and the last day they forgot to bring us to the airport...
It's a very basic accommodation and it's back to nature type of living, so don't expect too much and it will be okay.
staff will friendly and helpful.
natural n eco friendly”
friendly and helpful staff.
Very nice people”
Besides the fabulous sights the world has to offer, we also travel to experience the culture, food, and the people. Ray who helps run the lodge, even though he says he is a bartender only, is the go to person. When we were there, we had a tropical rain storm and the river overflowed its banks. We had no water for a shower, after a long day of trekking through the National park. Ray helped us fix the problem, looked after the lights that were not working on our deck, carried my bag across the flooded front yard when we were leaving and so many other little countless things, above and beyond the call of duty! Ray is a true ambassador for the wonderful people of Borneo!
Lodging in the middle of jungle, has alI need. Staff very friendly and helpful.”
Want to experinece what Mulu has to offer, the staff were very good in the arrangement of tours and guides. We really had a good time, even though it was rough.
Reasonable Mulu Lodge”
Staff are great. Anil is a super tour organizer and general handyman/facilitator. Fan works all day but outlets and air con go only with the generator usually morning and evening. We enjoyed our stay very much and will probably return.
Staff really took care of me”
I was picked up at Mulu airport and brought to the park and picked up at the end of the each day,Eddy was a great host. The room was bare bone basic. So tired after a day of trecking in the jungle it didn't matter much. Mulu is remote, think they do the best they can considering the limited resources available.
Good place, good folks.
Very friendly and competent staff. Great location along the river and surrounded by rainforest. Comfortable rooms and good food and drink service. The only disappointment was when the solar fan went off during the afternoon ( it had been rainy so there was an insufficient charge ).
