Mulia Resort: Review

One of the best beach resorts not only in Bali, but the world. A claim supported by a hoard of highly coveted tourism and hospitality awards. Mulia Resort exudes excellence in every aspect from luxurious guest rooms, to tasteful furniture, paintings, and sculptures reflecting Indonesian culture, to exceptional facilities like endless swimming pools, a white sandy private beach, and 3 romantic chapels that make Mulia a favorite destination for weddings.

Dining is another area in which Mulia Resort shines. Extravagant buffet breakfasts at modestly-named The Café will have you rolling back to your room, as will Sunday Brunch at Soleil. Dinner or lunch can be enjoyed at Chinese restaurant Table 8 or Japanese restaurant Edogin, both of which serve authentic dishes with the added entertainment of live cooking stations. More relaxed options abound at the resort’s several lounges and bars and there’s even an in-house nightclub for the young-at-heart yearning to dance the night away.

Insider Tips For Mulia Resort

The naming of the resort is a little confusing for first-time guests - this is actually 3 resorts on 1 property. The most popular (and largest area) is Mulia Resort. A separate super luxury wing with its own private lobby and beachfront pool is called The Mulia. And then further away from the beach is a group of private villas called Mulia Villas accessible via golf cart which has it's own lobby but shares facilities with Mulia Resort.

Private pool at Mulia Villas


Best Parts:
  • Opulent dining options for every meal.
  • Celebrity treatment. Respectful, welcoming, and helpful staff from the receptionists to the pool boys.
  • Sound proofing. Guests would never know there’s a thumping nightclub, ZJ’s located in the hotel.
  • Private beach with day beds and water sports.
  • Luxurious furnishings and artwork honoring Indonesian culture and style in every inch of the resort.
  • Romantic chapels making Mulia a popular choice for destination weddings.
Could Be Better:
  • Music players could be added to Grandeur and Signature rooms.
