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.
Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson also the proud record holder of Guinness World Records for achieving “The most swimming pools in a resort” and “The most overwater villas in single resort”.
Lobby @ Tower Block
Parking is ample right in front of the Tower Block as well as the multi-level parking in the building itself. The lobby is extremely spacious with high ceiling and furnished with plenty of comfortable seats for the guests. For guests who booked Executive Pool Villa, Premium Pool Villa and Sky Pool Villa can proceed with the check in/out process here.
Operated 24 hours, the shuttle buggy service will get you to various designated points along the hibiscus, from the lobby at Tower Block to the tip of the stigma.
Water villas built on the sea with contemporary designs by award-winning architects.
Fishing activity is prohibited at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson.
We took the buggy service to the Lighthouse club which is situated at the middle of the hibiscus petal. This glass-clad circular building is catered to guests staying at Panorama Pool Villa and the suites.
Check in was swift and pleasure and we had light refreshments while waiting for the buggy service to our room (*excited). Also completed with a lot of comfy sofa seats, guests can have a drink and there are also newspapers and magazines for one’s reading pleasure.
Love the colour combination of mint and white of the villas, a perfect photo spot!
We were greeted by fresh fruits and light snacks placed on the cabinet once we stepped into our Sea View Panorama Pool Villa. There are mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities in the cabinet as well.
Panorama view of part of our 926 sq ft room. Located at the stigma of the hibiscus, rooms under this category are not exposed to the walkways and do not have other units facing its pool directly. Definitely ideal for those who prefer total privacy.
The room adopted a warm, inviting, contemporary style with spacious earth toned interior and colourful contrasting details. Equipped with 2 King size beds which is divine with plush mattress, fine cotton sheets, cozy duvet and soft pillows. Separating the room and the balcony is a floor-to-ceiling sliding window that allows sufficient of sunlight to bask the room. It also provide a majestic view of waterfront outside.
The LCD TV brilliantly camouflaged in the dark glass mirror.
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.
The decorative vintage Chinese teapot set.
Mosquito repellent – We only found this when we getting ready to check out but we had a good night’s rest without any insect disturbance. ^__^
Other facilities available in the room are WIFI, radio and alarm clock.
Here come the highlight of the rooms under all categories at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson – the private dip pool at balcony. Have a dip anytime and accompanied by the magnificent sea view and soothing lapping of waves, I couldn’t ask for more.
There are also steam room, coffee tables and lounge chairs at the balcony.
Pool time! So much fun!
Thank you hubby for sacrificing his sleeping time to wake up early to take these wonderful photos of sun rise. Simply breathtaking~
