Perhentian Kecil to Tanjong Jara Resort - taxi(s)?

Hi All,

Apologizes if this has been posted but I searched and couldn't find anything.

My friend I are planning a trip to Malaysia for this May. We are 100% spending 4 days on Perhentian Kecil (more budget/backpacker accommodation) but would like to spend our last few days in Malaysia experiencing some luxury (approx 500-600 RM/night).

We are very interested in the Tanjong Jara Resort and are looking for some advise on how we would get to the resort from the Perhentian Kecil to Dungun. The bus option (Kuala besut>kuala terengganu>dungun) looks to be about 6 hours.... so we can better weight our options how much would it cost for a taxi? Would it be feasible to hire a taxi from kuala besut all the way to dungun, or more reasonable to break the legs in half, switching to a new taxi in Kuala terengganu?

I would love peoples thoughts.

Also, we are open to any other luxury resorts, if anyone has any suggestions :)
