Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson


It has been some time since I went on a break and as the year draws to a close, it's usually the busiest period when it comes to events and recruitment. Two weeks ago, my company (Best Events Services) was invited for a hotel tour at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson and I jumped at the chance to go as it meant just getting out of routine and hopefully away from the heavy haze in Kuala Lumpur city.

No luck with the haze, though. It was equally bad in Port Dickson, one hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur. Heck, the whole country is badly affected and it does not look like it's going away anytime soon despite the occasional rain.

Google Maps took us there using a longer route, we suspect. Instead of the usual 45-60 minute drive, it took us almost two hours. There was no heavy traffic as we left just before the peak hour. The only other explanation is that we got abducted by aliens along the way.

Anyway, when we reached at 5pm, we were greeted warmly by the Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson Sales and Marketing staff when we arrived and were immediately given our room keys and served a welcome drink and a goody bag which consisted of the event agenda, a really huge mug (which is great for soup, too), notebook and pens.


As it was quite a distance away from the main lobby, a buggy took us to our chalet built above the water. The room has a fuchsia coloured wall with two king-sized beds, marble floor adorned with an image of a hibiscus and glass doors that led us to a bathroom cum dressing area. There is a 2' x 3' glass panel in the centre of the bathroom so you can actually see the sea below you. 

Walk a little further and you will step outside where a private pool and sauna room awaits you.

They had me at the two king-sized beds.





We were not due for the hotel presentation until 7.30pm so we did some work on our laptops (it IS a weekday after all) and attempted to watch a movie on the in-built plasma TV.

After freshening up a little, we took a buggy to the ballroom where most of the guests were waiting for the presentation to start. After a dance gambit by their staff, Steve Woon, the Vice President of Sales & Marketing did a slide presentation about the Lexis Port Dickson properties and amenities before the Recreational head enlightened us about the activities that can be held at their hotel. 



We were then ushered for a buffet dinner at Roselle Coffee House. Something we noted when we walked through the hotel is that there is no one theme in terms of decor. Some areas are retro with heavy chandeliers, rose filled vases along walls and velvet furniture while some areas are adorned with jelly fish inspired lighting, wave like wall paneling and carpeting and bright coloured modern furniture. Carpet designs also vary from bold colours to the more subdue earth tones.


Roselle Coffee House's decor is classic and we were served outside where we could have seen the sea on a clear day. I loved the roast lamb, squid with salted egg, satay, fried rice with various dishes that they served generously at the buffet dinner. Desserts were a mix of both Asian and Western cakes, kuih and the must have teh tarik and coffee tarik.

The next morning, we had a buffet breakfast at 8.30am before we were shown the meeting rooms, helipad, Panaroma Pool Villa, and Lighthouse with a few floors for dining.










Our tour ended at the Hibiscus Lounge.

Nestled on Port Dickson’s pristine beach and overlooking the fantastic view of turquoise waters from the Straits of Malacca, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson showcases polished contemporary designs by award-winning architects, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that allow natural light to enter. Both spacious bedroom and living areas in their 117 tower rooms and 522 overwater villas are tastefully decorated and complemented with avant-garde amenities.

Fancy a midnight swim? All accommodation rooms are equipped with your own private dip pool and steam room. Live your vision of a tropical getaway, and fall for this exquisite location with its romantic sunsets lulled by the soothing lapping of waves.

Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson is the epitome of relaxation, inspired by the concept of refined luxury. Enjoy your serene vacation with an added measure of indulgence and high-living.
