The place was lovely. However, I wish that the staff would recommend places that we'd visit in Dungun as we were bored to death there. The beach on the opposite was beautiful, but you can't swim in it

This was an unplanned hotel choice following our arrival from the Redang Island and no access to WiFi at our previous hotel (Redang Mutiara Beech Resort). We (2 adults and 1 child aged 7) landed at Medang Jetty and decided Dungun would be a good stop. A taxi ride later RM 250 (Approx £28) dropped us at Ulek Boutique Hotel.... More

Reservation was done by phone. As I have stayed here a couple of times before, they already have my details and preferences. Eventhough I have stayed here a couple of times before, this is my first review of the place. The reception area has been moved to adjacent house that is probably newly acquired by the management. In my opinion,... More

My partner and I thought we should spend extra on a better accommodation since it was Raya and nothing would be open. Wish we had stayed at a cheaper place. Might not look as fancy as Ulek but would feel the same. The air condition doesn't work very well, the water tank is very noisy every time the tap runs... More

Nice and clean room. Spacious room with clean toilet especially with kids. Near the beach and restaurants. Just 4 minutes walk to a popular Mee Champa joint. Swimming pool well maintaned but the slide is quite high for small kids.

“All of the rooms are good we picked one with two single beds as the queen was too small for our taste...this worked for us.”

 of 5 bubbles adliizhama, 22 Jul 2016 | Read review
“I do not recommend this hotel if you are traveling with the elderly - the sunken bath is a problem and there are no handrails. Watch out for the slippery path when it rains. You literally get the view of the sea from the lobby - not much porter service and its a lot of DIY- just take this place as it is and ask for help if you need to. Be aware that Dungun is very much a sleepy hollow where things move slowly so do not get frustrated with the local staff - their friendliness and willingness to help makes up for it.”
