“WE MAYBE NOT A FIVE STAR HOTEL, BUT SURELY WE CAN GIVE YOU SLEEP AND RELAX UNDER THE MILLION STARS” -UGK-
Umea Glam Kundasang (UGK) is basically Owned/Founder by four business partners. We are all Sabahan from different ethnicity but after all, we are all Malaysian regardless race and religion and of course we treat each of among us like our own family member. Even though our profession is different, we actually shared similar interest. We love outdoors activity and of course nature.
Frequent visit to Kundasang town every holiday inspired us to build something different and unique that has never been done in Sabah especially at Kundasang. We wanted to build something that is closer to the nature. That was when we decided to build UGK.
Lets go further with Umea and some brief information about why we chose Umea at the first place. Umeå is actually a city located in eastern Sweden, known for its cultural institution and museums. Back in 2014, two of UGK’s partner traveled to Sweden to visit their relatives who was there to further his study in Art and Design. From that moment, they realized that the country emphasize in design regardless from huge building to even a tiny room which attract them the most. After couple of discussions, the UGK’s team decided to use Umea as the name for our project, which does not sounds like Kundasang at all but we just love the name.
We currently have 4 domes. At the moment, we will stick with 4, but it depends, who knows in the future we might build more :).
