Hotels in Miri are limited, consisting of a three-bedroom villa, a beachfront hotel, and an award-winning resort. However, they offer value-for money accommodations with high quality facilities and friendly service in this oil-rich boomtown. Miri is noteworthy on travellers’ maps due to the fact that it happens to be a major node on most routes to explore Sarawak. It’s a key transport hub for those heading to Brunei, the Kelabit Highlands and three of Sarawak’s national parks – Gunung Mulu, Niah Caves and Lambir Hills.
Situated within a 10-minute drive from Miri Airport, Miri is Sarawak’s largest town with a modern vibe, hosting a wide array of shops, restaurants and bars. Despite housing a significant expatriate community, the town retains a strong Chinese character and it’s not a bad place to stay for a day or two. Featuring cosy guestrooms and top-notch facilities in a strategic location, Miri hotels are the perfect stopovers for leisure travellers and backpackers who are trekking across wild north-western Sarawak.
