    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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.
