Check out the local ethnic touch to the aminities. Note the drinking bottle holder
Even the rubbish bin, toilet roll holder and laundry basket were nicely 'dressed'!
Not to mention the beautiful snacks busket! Nice for picnics.I decided to order breakfast from room service as I just dont feel like leaving the room! Here's my wontan noodle which I ate at the balcony. I can see part of the sea from where I was seated.
Verdict : The wontan mee quite nice. It came pipping hot and was served with thin slices of stew duck, baby cabbage and prawn wontan.
My stay there was pretty cool. No bad experiences! I had opportunity for a quick swim in the pool. No photos - maybe next time!
The hotel guests are quite mixed - holiday makers and those who are in town on business. Unfortunately, I belong to the second category so I was not able to fully appreciate what the hotel has to offer.
I didn't have the time to check out the spa.
Neither did I have the time to try out the dinning opportunities in Marriott other than the breakfast.
For a 5-star hotel, the breakfast spread is rather limited. They have the usual fare of noodles, bread, cereal, etc. I was looking for my usual starter dish of salads but was told that they dont serve salad for breakfast. Hm...disappointing.
However, I am glad that they serve my all time favourite of Sarawak Laksa! Upon hearing that I'm from the cat city, the chef on duty quickly qualify that the Sarawak Laksa from Miri taste different than the ones from Kuching. Anyway, I tried it and yes, the taste is different. In fact it's so different that it didn't taste like Sarawak Laksa at all!
Sarawak Laksa ala Marriott Miri
The night before I was due to leave, I thought a luxury soak in the bath would be rather appealing since the hotel include bath salt in their toilletries aminities.
Unfortunately I have to scrap the idea as the water was rather poluted and slighly 'yellowish'.
Such is my stay in Marriott Rosrt & Spa in Miri Sarawak.
I award it....4 chocolates
