Reviewed 24 September 2016

We were headed to Tenggol Island and drove to the East Coast from KL. We stayed overnight in Dungun to catch the boat to the Island the next day. We had originally let the Tenggol Coral Beach Resort agent book our hotel....we won't do that again as it was not at all to our liking. We stopped by the Ulek and took a room there and were very happy we did! Clean, nice view of the Sea and a really good nights sleep...the bed was not the greatest but for one night no problem at all. Breakfast was good, hot, and has cooked to order!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good we picked one with two single beds as the queen was too small for our tast...

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. It sits alongside 15k of sandy beech and calm sea.
We checked in, paid and were escorted to our room, then we were told that the pool was closed until further notice. The reason we chose here was for the pool for the little one!! We then checked straight out. We ate some food there and was pleasently surprised with the quality and tried to book a new venue on the iPad.... Guess what!!! The WiFi would not connect to any device and frustrated us even more. Time was running out so we decided o check back into the Ulek because the staff had been so helpful and courteous.
We were not disappointed, the room was a large room with 40" TV with cartoons for the little lady, a spacious bathroom with a sunken jacuzzi (unfortunately never worked) that had large doors to open to the outside. Free water, in room safe (not secured down so seen as a risk), fridge, clean towels and cosmetics.
On the evening we walked 200 yards to a restaurant recommended by Trip Advisor and amongst the top in Dungun (The Hole West) and ate amazing quick food with fabulous service.
Breakfast at the Ulek was sufficient but added chicken to the noodles and fried rice (not good when one of you in a vegetarian). It was fresh and plentiful.
Our whole experience here was superb, had the pool worked, the in room safe been secure and a better WiFi connection it would sertainly be a 5* rating for us. Amazing dedicated team with great service.

Ulek Beach resort is a 20 min ride to the Tenggol island ferry pier. The hotel is rather new, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. TV had some tech issues but then you are 50 m from the beach )
Breakfast was very good with local and intl food (French toast).
If you go to Tenggol (ferry only leaving early morning usually at 8.30 am or 10.30 am) this is the perfect place to stay the night before.

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, the older reception area in the main building itself was more homely and nicer. What was the old reception area was turned into an extra dining area thus forcing you to walk among the buffet table in order to get to the chalets behind the main building.

My room was a deluxe room that is situated right infront of a unkempt and dirty swimming pool. The room was equipped with a queen size bed, a small old fashion tv, a mini fridge, a safe deposit box, an iron but without an ironing board. The bathroom came with a sunken jacuzzi tub. The bathroom can be turned into an open air semi outdoor unit by opening the wooden slatted panels. It opened out to a private garden encircled by a wooden fence. Be adviced though that the way the fence was constructed, people from outside can see into the bathroom. If you don't mind being naked and possibly being seen by the people, go ahead and open the slatted wooden panel. By the way, the jacuzzi in my room did not work.

The chalet, mostly constructed of wood and brick, can be a bit hot in the day time. You can open up the full length windows to let in some fresh air. Not advisable to do that at night unless you don't mind sleeping with the mosquitoes. There is no phone in the room so if you decide to order room service, you have to do it by Whatsapp. As to how to do that,the instruction is printed on the room service menu. By the way, wi-fi is provided free of charge and available in the rooms.

Breakfast came with the room but the selection was really limited. Not worth waking up for. However, about 2 minute walk from the hotel, there is a well known noodle soup joint that served a very good noodle soup. It opens for breakfast right up to about 3 pm.

The hotel is situated across the road from the beach but it is not safe for swimming. There are ample parking space within the hotel compound.

In short, for the price you pay, this place is quite ok. The staff are very friendly and eager to help. I would stay here for my next trip.

Room Tip: MU02 if you want to be infront of the pool
