Ulek Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Dungun
Reviewed 10 March 2017 via mobile

A small resort facing the south china sea. The rooms are quite nice having all the essentials to make a comfortable stay. Air con as well as fan. Sunken spa bath with overhead shower, so not ideal for all guests. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent coffee and cakes in the cafe. There was a promotion discount on beverages and meals for guests during our stay. Breakfast buffet style was excellent with western and asian dishes available. There are other eateries but not in walking distance. A lovely place to stay.

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

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...

We reached in the evening on Saturday .. The rooms were basic, with not so grand breakfast.
The hotel staff re very kind n helpful.
But it's very silent here., No buffet Dinner or lunch. So we got to explore the place. The good beaches for swimming re far bout 20 min driving ..
Sleeping town.. Good for relaxation with family n friends.

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.
