My 2nd time here. Comfort in bedroom and bathroom is above average. Chalet interior has Bali-style feeling. Breakfast buffet and egg station is very poor in taste, need a lot of improvement. Too bad the swimming pool is closed right now. Overall is a good place to stay for a night.

We stayed for one night while traveling around Malaysia and stopped by without reservation. Very kind staff, they immediately got that we were tiered and hungry and did their best to take us to the room as soon as possible. The room was a cozy bungalow with an amazing bathroom where you could open the windows and face a small... More

Beautiful and comfortable resort on the beach .. Rooms are comfortable with an attractive bathroom and bath tub with Jacuzzi .. interesting .. little-noise environment as closely room and a place to walk close to the room .. no wifi line. not good if there are no facilities on holiday to facilitate the visitors .. good service.

Still relatively clean and nice because it is new, the potential for this place to either soar or sink is all up to the management. They've got the concept right, nice sized chalets, interesting bathroom that opens up to a tiny little space outside for that Balinese outdoor bathroom feel, comfy bed. Needs to improve on: 1. Customer service -... More

Perfect for road trip travellers. Facilities wise - basic but comfortable enough. Swimming pool lacking maintenance. Overall appearance and layout of resort depicts a traditional Malay-style wooden chalets, but interiors are trendy and comfy. Might get a little boring after one or two nights because of the nature of the area and town itself. Otherwise, will come and stay again.

A visit to Dungan was a nostalgic trip for us as we were last there 40 yrs ago. Very different. The resort provides chalet style accommodation, in a very quite area, with clean and adequate rooms containing a great sunken bath/shower/spa. The resort obviously caters to local tourists and consequently the restauant fare is biassed to local food. A small... More

I love doing road trips around Malaysia with my family n having 2 young kids make hotel hunting all the more troublesome so my expectations for this hotel was a little "meh".

We stayed here for 5 nights in August 2013. It's a very nice and well-kept resort, with really pretty and clean bungalows and a little outdoor pool. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and invited all of their guests to a free lunch on the first day of "Hari Raya". Though the resort itself is very nice, we wouldn't... More

All room are like malay house, you may call chalet. Room and bathroom is ok, everything in good condition. jacuzzi is small. I think the price... More

Its end of Ramadaan and had family gathering in Dungun. We decided to have some fun at the swimming pool. Within couple of hours, one of the staff told us that there was a complaint that we were noisy. It was not mid-night, it was mid-day. It was about noon. We were also asked to evacuate the pool. We had... More
