Why We Like It:
The enormous, 5 Star luxury, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson Resort, just south of Kuala Lumpur, is one of Malaysia’s most iconic resorts, and it has the largest amount of overwater bungalows of any resort in the world.
There are an astonishing 522 overwater of them stretching out nearly a mile into the Strait of Malacca in the shape of a hibiscus flower.
Each water villa is beautifully put together, with suitably luxurious interiors and outdoor decks with private plunge pools.
The only negative we can see though is that with such a huge amount of overwater bungalows together they are relatively close together and so not as private as some people may like.
The resort itself has excellent facilities, including a big choice of restaurants and snack bars, spa facilities, a kid’s club, and a huge range of fun water and land-based sports activities. On land too there are a further one hundred-plus guest villas.
Water Villas & Other Accommodation:
So there are 522 overwater villas and a further 117 on-land villas divided into categories and price points depending on location, view (sea view or beach view) and size.
The pick of the bunch at Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson is the spectacular Presidential Suite, right at the tip of the hibiscus.
It is a four ensuite bedroom duplex covering a full 4,112 square feet (382 square meters) with an enormous living, and dining area, kitchen and bar.
It also has unobstructed sea views, two infinity pools and an outdoor jacuzzi.
Across the board, the accommodation is spacious and airy, with king beds and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open onto furnished outdoor decks with private plunge pools.
The designers paid particular attention to the bathrooms – more spacious and luxurious than most they have double sinks, rainfall showers, steam rooms, and soaking tubs with sea views. They also have direct access to the terrace and the aforementioned private plunge pools.
Mod cons include large TVs, WiFi, mini-fridges, and minibars. And all the overwater bungalows have that classic overwater feature we’ve grown to love – glass viewing panels in the floor to watch the marine life below.
Resort Facilities & Things to Do:
There is a relatively small beach at the resort with umbrellas and loungers and a water sports area with a huge range of fun water sports on offer.
Segways, yoyo cars, and bikes can be rented on land too, as well as helicopter rides over the resort. There are two pools here, one for adults and one for kids, adjacent to the kids’ club which has a fun jungle gym and lots of games.
The spa facilities at Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson are highly praised by guests and there is an on-site gym and sauna too.
Dining choices include the Roselle Coffee House which serves as the hotel’s centerpiece restaurant. It is where the buffet breakfast and a la carte lunch and dinner are served.
UMI is a fairly formal Japanese eatery, good for a sophisticated evening out. And there are lots of smaller food outlets and snack points dotted around the resort.
The resort is about a half hour south of Port Dickson, with Kuala Lumpur about an hour and a half away, and the International Airport about an hour. Coming by car from Singapore will take you around four hours.
Some Guest Reviews:
“ Room and view was fantastic. The staff was also friendly. Special thanks to Azwan from clubhouse and Nazreen from the Roselle. Great staff and pay attention to guest relation service…..”
“Went for an impromptu staycay and so glad we chose this hotel! Room was clean, staff were friendly. The in-room pool and amazing bath tub was enough to keep us occupied in the room without going anywhere else. Perfect because we were still afraid of the virus. Ordered the waffles at the lighthouse restaurant for breakfast and it was the best waffles I’ve ever eaten! Will be back with more bubble baths to enjoy the tub more :))….”
