A great place to stay

Review of Mulu Village
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Aug 2017via mobile
A lovely home stay about 2km from the national park. Although the rooms are very basic once you hear the owners stories of flooding you understand why.
What the home stay lacks in luxury it makes up for in kindness from the owners. When my partner was ill they couldn't do enough to help her and provided medicine and advice on how to get better.
Yes there is only electricity in the evening and no wi-fi but in a way that is part of the charm of the place- experiencing life in a similar way to the locals.

      This place gave the feel of Jurassic Park the minute we landed. It was amazing and beautiful. We stayed in one of the longhouses and it was awesome, very comfortable bed and pillow and just a great room with a beautiful outlook. The trails are well maintained and the caves are awesome. The food at the cafe was not bad either.

      Fantastic place with the best people and atmosphere! It is a bit further, but definitely worth to walk the little extra distance. We had a great time here. Brenda and James (the landlords with a great sense of humor) took us to a local spa and the whole stay was a great adventure.

      Run by friendly couple, the longhouse is a great option to stay at if you are on a budget. They do a great and varied breakfast, something different every day.
      The bike ride to the park in the morning is pleasant and only takes about 5 minutes.
      It has a good common area for the evenings and a few restaurants close by selling yummy food in the evenings!
      Would stay again!

      Only downside - power only between 6pm-12pm, so cannot shower until 6pm.

      Shower is available throughout the day. Gravity pressure when there is no power. It might be weak when everyone is using the shower or toilet. Pressure pump is on after 6pm but on occassion, we off it after 11pm to reduce the noise. Kindly inform us if one needs to shower n the electric pump is off.
