Marriott in talks to manage Mulu resort

MIRI: Marriott International Incorporated is currently engaged in talks to takeover the management of Mulu Resort, located near the world famous Mulu Caves, in the interiors here.

Marriott International South Asia Area Vice-President Rajeev Menon said discussions were now on-going with Majupun Sdn Bhd, a Sarawak-based company which owned the resort.

Borsarmulu Resort Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Majupun, is currently managing Mulu Resort.

"We will make an announcement (on the management takeover) between 60 and 90 days," he told reporters at the end of a Miri Marriott Resort and Spa Charity Run yesterday.

Menon said Miri Marriott, also owned by Majupun, was managed by Marriott International since June 2003.

The 188-room five-star resort, operating since the 1990's, is designed after Sarawakian ethnic longhouses. - Bernama
