Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson

I can smell Christmas already!

That’s a cue for us to plan for holiday, be it a short getaway or a long adventurous journey. Thanks to Mr. Trump, I believe a short trip to a sanctuary away from the hustle bustle of city life is in order.

I always like the saying of “Don’t judge a book by its cover” as I truly experienced this moment when I thought of Port Dickson.

Port Dickson, once a glorious tourist destination, is shunned by many KLites due to the perception of dirty beaches and polluted sea. But my view changed completely when I checked into Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson two weeks ago for a weekend getaway.

Nestled along Pasir Panjang beach and overlooking the Straits of Malacca, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson is only one hour plus drive from Kuala Lumpur. Being cited as the largest water homes development in the world, the water villas at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson stretches out to more than a kilometer from the beach to the furthest view at the sea resembling the Hibiscus flower. Lexis Hibiscus is also home to a 400-feet water fountain and it is the tallest water fountain in Malaysia. The resort is like a scenic launch pad of Port Dickson and it is truly a reflection of creativity, innovative and aesthetic flair.

Our room is luxuriously appointed with a decadent spacious marble-clad bathroom. I love the his & her sinks where hubby gets his own corner and I get my own to clutter up with my facial stuff.  Both water closet and bath area are separated. The glass shower room is fitted with a beautiful bathtub, rain shower as well as a usual handshower.

Notice the glass panel on the floor? One can view the marine life below if the water is clear but unfortunately we didn’t see any due to the downpour the night before 🙁

Standard toiletries, bathrobes, in-room safe, iron and board, hair dryer, scale and slippers are provided too. I usually don’t like to use hotel’s bathtub because there are always dirty stains on it. I had a soothing bubble bath without worry about the cleanliness because everything here at Lexis Hibiscus is well maintained.

We left Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson with a heavy heart that afternoon. It is a wonderful experience that we wish we never had to leave. Bye, till we meet again~

Stay tune for next post of my dining experience at the resort!

 

Verdict: A short break at the resort is a great way to recharge the batteries and get away from the busy life for a few days.The room rate might be on the higher side but the rest-assured, the resort provides an unparalleled level of luxury and opulence experience to the guests. Vacation with an added measure of indulgence and high-living definitely one of the way to reward yourself for a whole year of hard work.
