From the sky, it looks like a beautiful white hibiscus flower. You go closer – it is water, water, everywhere. A proud Guinness World Records holder for having the most number of swimming pools in a resort and the most overwater villas in single resort, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson in Malaysia is indeed a beautiful property to experience. Oh, there is another important reason to love, the excellent Indian food cooked by the in-house chefs!
Fondly known as PD, Port Dickson is a Malaysian city with a stretch of sandy beaches lined by swaying palm trees. It is a popular getaway, owing to its close proximity to Kuala Lumpur and yet secluded enough for a tranquil retreat. Nestled along Port Dickson’s pristine Pasir Panjang beach and overlooking the Straits of Malacca, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson is a convenient one hour drive from Kuala Lumpur and a pleasant three-hour journey from Singapore.
From concept to reality, the Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson began with a vision of a bud blossoming into a beautiful hibiscus bloom spreading out into the waters of Port Dickson. Offering a unique experience, the water villas stretch to almost a kilometre out into the sea. The hotel is also home to a 100- metre water fountain, forming a prominent part of the resort’s landscape. It is the tallest fountain in Malaysia, and already a major tourist attraction for those who are staying nearby.
What’s on offer?
A contemporary and avant-garde resort, Lexis Hibiscus has a total of 639 pool villas, comprising 117 tower rooms and 522 picturesque seawater chalets, each unit equipped with a private dip pool and steam room.
While the Executive Pool Villas offer transparent glass floor panel with underneath seawater view, the Premium Pool Villas have added floor to ceiling glass windows open to the sea. The Sky Pool Villas have a distinct advantage that every unit faces the Strait of Malacca, offering full privacy. The Royal Imperial and Presidential Suites come with higher levels and standards of luxury and comfort. The Presidential Suite is a duplex with two private pools and an outdoor jacuzzi.
Lexis Hibiscus also offers eight different options for dining, with options like Japanese, Chinese or a bistro for the guests to choose from. In addition, Wave Dining features modern western cuisine with an emphasis on chef-recommended specialities giving a trendy gastronomic dining experience. The kitchen has quite a few Indians working and hence getting a customised Indian meal is just a matter of request!
Moving on from gastronomy to wellness, the indulgent menu of massage and beauty treatments at the LexSpa can rejuvenate the body before or after the wedding or any grand event, or during a simple vacation. While you are at the spa, your kids can play and have fun in the safe environment of Kidz World. Budding singers can do their experiments at Starz Karaoke while the quiet listeners can enjoy their favourite numbers.
The property is tailor-made for destination weddings. With the backdrop of turquoise waters of the Straits of Malacca and a spectacular beachfront, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson is an ideal setting for a memorable wedding celebration with family and friends. The Indian big fat weddings require sprawling and spacious resorts where different functions and rituals can take place. The hotel already receives numerous bookings for hosting Indian weddings as well as MICE groups.
The wow factors!
Located adjacent to the resort along Pantai Cermin, Hibiscus Walk is a unique outdoor shopping and dining promenade that features rows of street food style stalls offering authentic Malaysian cuisine, a souvenir shop and a wellness centre with therapeutic massages. One can choose from a wide selection of tasty specialities from Penang, along with Nyonya favourites, barbeque spreads, tropical fruit and satay and more.
The hotel was the first one in Malaysia to come equipped with its own helipad for its uber-rich guests. The hotel also offers its guests helicopter joyrides along the beach and its surrounding area.
The exclusive Health Care Bay offers 24 hours house call service for the guests. Having a mini-hospital in the hotel you are staying gives you an added advantage especially when you are travelling with old family members or kids or people who are suffering from some minor ailments. All consultations are provided by well-trained licensed doctors regardless of the time of day or night and the services are personalised as per the needs of the guest.
