Ayus Wellness at Mulu Marriott Becomes First Healing Hotel in Malaysia New Program Includes Forest Immersion, Wild Swimming, and Rainforest Yoga

With an innovative new program that harnesses the healing power of the natural world, Ayus Wellness at Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa has become the first hotel in Malaysia to join the Healing Hotels of the World.

Cologne, Germany, August 31, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Ayus takes its name from the Sanskrit, meaning the sense of life, from its most microscopic cellular level to its simultaneous vastness, including the movement of galaxies and universes.

Borneo food traditions, local Sarawakian ingredients and flavors, and even wild-crafted foods from the grounds of the resort itself have been used to craft a unique wellness cuisine for Ayus Wellness. The gourmet vegetarian menu includes a unique power shot made from gotu kolu (Centella asiatica), known locally as Pegaga.

“At Ayus Wellness at Mulu Marriott, we recognize a deep kindredness between our vision and goals and those of The Healing Hotels of the World,” says Robert Geneid, Managing Director of Mulu Marriott. “Being part of a like-minded community reinforces our commitment to cherished values, and creates an opportunity to learn even more from those on the same path. By being a Healing Hotel of the World, Ayus Wellness at Mulu Marriott is immediately understood by the type of guest that wants this high-quality healing and hospitality experience. Membership also allows us to draw on deep expertise from Healing Hotels of the World in shaping the future standards and direction of Ayus Wellness in Mulu and beyond.”

The resort adjoins the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mulu National Park, one of the few sites in the world which satisfies all four of the criteria for the World Heritage List. One of the most important tenets of Ayus Wellness is its capacity for building employment among the indigenous local community; nearly 200 members of the indigenous community have been trained in roles from hotel management to running the national park.

Mulu Marriot features 101 guest rooms, including nine suites, as well as a ballroom that can accommodate 200 guests; a restaurant offering both air-conditioned indoor dining or al fresco poolside dining and an extensive menu of vegetarian, vegan and non-vegetarian food; a well-equipped gym; a spa facility with four treatment rooms; a yoga studio and bar.
