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 of race and religion and of course, we treat each of us as our own family member. Even though our profession is different, we actually shared similar interests. We love outdoor activities and of course nature.
Frequent visits 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 nature. That was when we decided to build UGK.
Let's go further with Umea and some brief information about why we chose Umea in 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 were there to further his study in Art and Design. From that moment, they realized that the country emphasize in design regardless of the huge building to even a tiny room which attract them the most. After a couple of discussions, the UGK’s team decided to use Umea as the name for our project, which does not sound like Kundasang at all but we just love the name.
