If you are looking for the perfect resort for relaxtion in Malaysia, the hotel Grand Lexis Port Dickson definitely deserves to be on your list.
Thanks to having my favourite two features in a hotel room – over-water villas plus private swimming pools – all wrapped into one, the Grand Lexis hotel Port Dickson is one of my favourite hotels in the world to have a fun and relaxing break.
In addition to this, there are many facilities and activities to keep you occupied if you can ever drag yourself from your pool.
In this Grand Lexis Port Dickson blog, I’m going to show you around the Grand Lexis, inside our Grand Lexis Port Dickson executive pool villa and tell you everything you need to know so you can decide via our Grand Lexis Port Dickson review if this resort is the right one for you.
Grand Lexis Port Dickson Review
The Grand Lexis in Port Dickson is located just north of the centre of Port Dickson. It may be the best located resort in Port Dickson from this perspective and there is a lot within a short distance from the resort.
There is also a lot within the Grand Lexis Port Dickson resort so you only need to leave if you want to.
Executive Pool Villa Grand Lexis Port Dickson
The main reason you are likely to stay here is due to the sensational Grand Lexis private pool opportunities – there are many room types that feature this.
If you are a land lover, you can stay in a garden pool villa Grand Lexis or a Grand Lexis Port Dickson room type that isn’t over the ocean. However, it is a shame to come here and not try the sensational over-water villas with private pool.
We stayed in the executive pool villa which is what is pictured below. All rooms types are somewhat similar in look and feel.
You can take a quick tour here:
This villa is spacious and we found it fine with our family of five.
The bedroom area features two queen size beds, cupboards, a desk area, a minibar (complete with some included water and soft drinks) and everything else you would expect from a 5-star hotel. You can also get a baby cot if you have a little one.
As an added bonus, there is also a glass panel so you can see the water below. There is also a modem so internet is great.
From the bedroom, you can either access the pool area (there is a lock high up on the door so kids are safe) or a kitchenette area. The kitchenette has stools, a sink, tea and coffee making facilities, a microwave and some crockery and cutlery.
Finally, there is a large bathroom with views out to the ocean. From here, you can also exit to the fabulous outdoor area which also is home to a second shower.
The pool itself is great. It’s a good depth and there are steps. It’s a great size for a private pool too.
The room was well presented and well looked after. There is also an evening service when you can get fresh towels, more water and toiletries.
There are many activities and facilities at the Grand Lexis resort Port Dickson.
There is a great pool area which is very nice and well maintained as pictured above. It also has a small water playground. There’s a second outdoor playground as well.
Inside, you can find a small play area, a gym, day spa, karaoke room and a big games room. The games room has many game machines along with snooker tables, table tennis, air hockey and a Wii and XBox. Just about everything has a fee starting at 5 ringgit.
Outdoors, there are quite a few small activities. You can attempt an inflatable maze, work on your archery skills or ride a segway or mini electric cars for kids. There are also bikes to rent.
Most activities start at RM10 and the amount of time varies by the activitiy.
There are several restaurants as well as room service. Many cuisines are catered for and you shouldn’t have problems finding something you want to eat.
We highly recommend the Japanese option. It is some of the best Japanese we have ever eaten!
The only shame is that the restaurants are a bit tucked away and don’t take advantage of the waterfront location at all. We preferred getting room service and eating while we enjoyed our pool.
It’s also easy to eat somewhere else if you want. There are many options for a restaurant near Grand Lexis Port Dickson as it’s quite a central spot. I recommend a car or taxi to get around though – it’s hot!
Our Grand Lexis PD review revealed a nice resort hotel which has some good activities and eating options and some absolutely fabulous accommodation options.
We loved our Grand Lexis pool villa Port Dickson and being able to relax and enjoy our own pool space with the kids was priceless. It’s the perfect place for a family trip and I imagine it might be even better for a romantic weekend or honeymoon – the private pools are very private!
My only complaint is that the rooms and pools are so private that we didn’t really get a view over the water unless we went looking for it. It would be nice if the over-water villas took more advantage of their location. It would also be good if the activities were more reasonably priced.
However, these are minor complaints in what was a fabulous experience. We can’t wait to go back!
