The top resorts on Port Dickson beaches

By , November 25, 2016

Port Dickson is a beach destination along the way to KL from Singapore by car (less than a two-hour drive from KL). Because we think it’s a worthwhile detour we’ve rounded up seven of the town’s top-rated resorts on Port Dickson beaches, stretching from Bagan Lalang to the tail end of Pork Dickson Beach, for you to book or bookmark for later!

Port Dickson Beach

Avillion Port Dickson Spa & Beach Resort

Situated at the top of Port Dickson beach is the sister hotel of Avillion Admiral Cove — ideal for a holiday with the kids. Slip on a mermaid tail, walk among peacocks in the hotel’s own aviary, or have your own a private DIY BBQ set dinner for your whole family. You won’t want to miss these magical experiences crafted by Avillion Hotel for both young and young at heart! We recommend dining at The Verte where you’re encouraged to try the different herbs used in dishes before ordering them.

Room tip: The most economical option for families is the beach-facing Water Chalet which can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children.

Klana Beach Resort Port Dickson

Located at the tail end of Port Dickson Beach is the best value resort on our list. Note that this halal resort has separate swimming pools for men and women and alcohol isn’t served (you can walk to nearby restaurants for that). So, if that doesn’t bother you, there’s a lot to be enjoyed here including the hotel’s very own astronomical observatory and sunsets on the beach.

Room tip: Opt for a seaview room — you’re on a beach holiday after all!

Avillion Admiral Cove

Situated in the centre of Port Dickson Beach is the 5-star luxury resort that’s connected to the Admiral Marina & Leisure Club. The finest hotels in the region are usually colonial-style which, with the large verandas, the hotel most certainly is. The characteristic styling of the waterfront hotel extends to its coffee shop and pub; the Traders’ Food Shop and Sailor’s Drink Shop.

Room tip: Double rooms are 37.4 square metres and can accommodate up to 2 adults and 1 child.

Bagan Lalang

Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort

First of all, from an aerial view, the cluster of raised villas, built directly over the water, are shaped into a palm tree. Or you can enjoy the view from the hotel’s infinity pool. We recommend participating in the Black Ivory Coffee Workshop, an informational session on one of the world’s rarest coffees.

Room tip: Rooms start at a generous 52 square metres and have private balconies or terraces, depending on if you’re on the first or second level, each with spectacular views of the sunset. You can’t go wrong with any room type — each have direct access to the tropical waters beneath the hotel.

Tanjung Gemuk Beach

Lexis Port Dickson

The top rated 4-star in PD holds this accolade owing to its impressive range of entertainment facilities. Those with young children will be glad the hotel has both an outdoor playground and indoor playroom while those with older kids will have fun doing KMX karting or archery together. Another activity for the family is karaoke. Enjoy singing without having to watch the clock in a group of up to 18 people at the hotel’s own karaoke centre. For dining, there are alfresco restaurants next door at sister hotel Grand Lexis Port Dickson and various local food options within walking distance.

Room tip: Double rooms are 39 square metres. Each has one king and one day bed, and a private balcony overlooking the sea.

Grand Lexis Port Dickson

Guests at either of the two Lexis Port Dickson hotels on Tanjung Gemuk Beach can use each other’s facilities. The Grand Lexis Port Dickson contains more of the facilities shared between the two hotels, including the Lex Spa. Guests praise the Lexis Hotel Group’s Port Dickson hotels for their value for money.

Room tip: Double rooms each have a private swimming pool and a king-sized bed, and is a spacious 62 square metres. There are 10 room types to choose from, ranging from 2-6 person rooms. Each has a private pool, some with private gardens.

As with any luxury resort, a fully serviced spa is among the hotel’s facilities. Other leisure amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, a 9-hole golf course, and, like you would expect from a beachside hotel, water sports equipment.

Room tip: The large bathroom and sea view from the Deluxe Room sets the tone for a resort-style getaway.
