COLOGNE, Germany - Aug. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- 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.

Located in Mulu National Park, the hotel was rebranded under the Marriott name in 2013. Ayus Wellness is a new program created by Dr Gerry Bodeker, an academic at both the University of Oxford and Columbia University in New York. Dr Bodeker is a long-time proponent of the importance of mental wellness and has teamed up with Robert Geneid, one of the owners of Mulu Marriott, to bring a new level of healing programming to the resort.

The 52,000 hectares of ancient rainforest surrounding the resort serve as the canvas for Ayus Wellness, which has crafted personalized, science-based programs that are effective in enhancing mood and mind. The extraordinary natural environment of Mulu allows Ayus Wellness to employ the novel approach of using nature as one of its primary tools of therapy, through forest immersion and other experiences in the rainforest, including yoga, meditation, silent canopy walks, and swimming in the bracing, mineralized waters of Clearwater Pool, which are filtered through 60-million-year-old limestone caves.

"Having experienced Ayus Wellness first-hand, I can say that the power of the pristine natural landscape is extraordinary," says Anne Biging, Co-Founder of Healing Hotels of the World. "From swimming in the natural forest pools to dining on local vegetarian fare to sharing in the culture of the indigenous people – the whole experience is a beautiful, healing journey."

"At Ayus Wellness at Mulu Marriott, we recognize a deep kindredness between our vision and goals and those of https://healinghotelsoftheworld.com/," 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.
