Dungun Escapade Resort

About Us

Your One Stop Diving Center In Tenggol

Dungun Escapade Resort (DDR) is conveniently located just 25 km or 45 minutes away from Tenggol Island, Terengganu, Malaysia

Recognizing the demand for a higher standard of accommodation, Dungun Escapade Resort (DDR) has built it’s own resort to offer our customers not only spacious and clean rooms, but also daily room cleaning service and all the amenities for a luxurious stay on Kuala Dungun, Terengganu.

Dungun Escapade Resort (DDR) was built in November 2017. We are a small, cozy resort with just 20 secluded rooms available to diver and non-divers alike.

Most travelers visit Tenggol for its great dive sites. There are quite a few very nice sites, though some are only accessible by advanced (or experienced) divers as most sites are affected by strong currents. Most popular dive spots are; Batu Chanang, Tokong Laut (also known as the Highway), Tokong Burung and Coral Garden. There are sites with some nice wrecks and sites where you can enjoy macro underwater life (especially many nudibranches). Whale sharks are seen at certain sites between August and October every year.

There are daily flights operated by Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur International Aiport (KLIA & LCCT) to Kuala Terengganu. From here you take a public bus or taxi to the small coastal town of Kuala Dungun (travel time around 1 hour). Expect to pay only a few ringgits by bus and around RM60 by taxi.

Another option is a flight by Firefly from Subang Airport (nearer to KL compared to KLIA/LCCT) to the town of Kerteh. From Kerteh it is only a 20 minute drive by taxi to Kuala Dungun. This option saves a lot of time when you are traveling from Kuala Lumpur.
