Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson – Part 2


The Sun, The Sea and A Tour of the Iconic Resort


For some reason, my internal alarm clock woke me up around 5.45am that morning. Maybe it knew I should not miss catching the early sunrise that I hardly ever see living in the metropolitan city.


And was I glad I woke up. As soon as I open the door to the balcony, the view of the wee early hours of the morning was simply mystical. It was quiet, so quiet that I can hear a pin drop. Nevertheless, I was enchanted at the sight of the sunrise and its nature’s colors.

I spent an hour just enjoying this magical sight of colors, feeling blessed at how beautiful Mother Nature is and how I am able to experience this moment from my Panorama Pool Villa with Sea View. I doubt I can ever forget this moment in my life and I don’t think I would want too anyway…


The sun rises early and by 7am plus, my balcony view took another turn of colors. This view is practically postcard perfect and another footprint that will be with me for a long time to come. My country is beautiful… signing blissfully…


Then it was time to wake up the little one for breakfast. But not before we had a quick dip in the pool though. 



A quick shower and we waited for our shuttle to Lighthouse Club for our breakfast. For guests staying at the Panorama Pool Villas and Suits, breakfast is served at tableside at Level 2, Wave Dining at the Lighthouse Club.



Wave Dining, set in a colorful contemporary dining décor, offers modern Western cuisine. During morning, the restaurant serves breakfast from its seasonal menu and in the evening, the restaurant serves Chef’s degustation menu as well as a la carte menu from chef’s specialties.




There are usually 4 choices of breakfast mains and plenty of other accompaniments such as assorted bread and pastries that are served with homemade yoghurt, jams, overnight oats, chia seeds and coconut milk, sago and Pandan panna cotta along with fresh cold pressed juices, coffee and tea. The healthy and sumptuous breakfast is available at RM80 nett per pax.


The homemade Pumpkin Kaya and Blackberry Jam was exceptional so make sure to ask the wait staff for these.


I took a look at Something Fishy and decided that this was it. It’s my kind of savory breakfast that is out of the norm and sounds utterly delicious. Crab cake with Wasabi Mayonnaise, 63 degree Egg with Hollandaise on Salted Fish Mash and Salmon Trout Gravlax Bagel, Cream Cheese, Capers & Red Onion sums up Something Fishy. Love the beautiful crab cakes and the 63 degree egg with hollandaise sauce because everything tasted so luscious and flavorful.


My little one had The Comfy, a hearty and warming dish of Spinach, Chicken Ham & Cheese Croque Monsieur with Chicken Chorizo, Ratatouille & Sunny Side Up. Such a cheesy and delicious breakfast and the spicy chicken chorizo was exceptionally yummy for me since I had that as the little one find it too spicy for him.


Hubby had The American Breakfast, another hearty dish of Grilled Herb Sausage, Cherry Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar, Truffle Scrambled Eggs on Toast and a house made Baked Beans. While everything was delicious, the house made baked beans stood out for me. I practically polished off all his baked beans because the robust, spicy and tomato flavors was superb.


For those who prefer meatless and healthier breakfast, opt for The Vegan which has Roasted Onions and Potatoes with Truffle, Barley Risotto with Scrambled Tofu, Chickpea with Cauliflower Salad with Green Chili Dressing and Baked Beans.



After a sumptuous breakfast, we set out for a tour of the resort accompanied by the staff of the resort. Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson offers various villas and suites to cater to everyone. Whether you are opting for a view of the vast spread of greens or the endless sight of blue sky meets azure sea, there are few choices to cater to your needs and budgets.


The main lobby at the tower block was already buzzing with much activities and many are seen strolling around the resort with families and friends. I love how spacious the lobby is and how the modern design echoed a vibe of calmness with artistic touches everywhere.



We started with the main building tower block tour where we first checked out the Sky Pool Villa, a spacious room where every unit has panoramic sea view. Offering two king beds with the private dip pool and steam room at the balcony area, the room is bright and spruced up with colors for much cheeriness.


The room comes with full bath, rain shower as well as its own powder room. There is a lounging area with a work desk. This villa is located on the main building, minimizing walking should you have a guest that is not convenient for long walks.

One may ask what can one do at Lexis Hibiscus. Well, there’s certainly plenty to do if one seeks adventures or activities of all sorts indoors.


For adults, there’s LexSpa, located on the second floor of the main building. If you’re seeking pleasure and comfort to unwind and sooth out those body aches with a session of spa treatments, this is it. Available in single or couple room, there are plenty of spa treatments available to cater to your needs. One can also enjoy the Jacuzzi as well as full shower facility after your spa treatment. More details here.


Even little ones get to run around and unleash their energy at Kidz World. Safe and build with little ones in mind, the enclosed room has little ones enjoying children activities in full force while the parents get to do their own thing. We love how colorful and fun the room is and our little fella couldn’t wait to jump on the slides and play there. Kidz World is located on the second level of the main building. There are also other kids’ activities such as Sand Art, Mug Painting, Face Painting and more. More details here.


If the whole clan wishes to sing their hearts out, head over to the Starz Karaoke for lots of singing action in the sleek and state-of-the-art audio visual equipped Karaoke rooms that can hold up to 22 pax in a room. Starz Karaoke is located on the second floor of the main building. More details available here.

Besides all the above, there’s Gym, Photo Booth and Tour Desk that offers respective activities for everyone.


Lexis Hibiscus is also well-known as a great resort to host meetings, teambuilding as well as private functions such as weddings and other celebrations. There’s an opulent Hibiscus Grand Ballroom, Sky Ballroom, Nautica Deck, Boardroom, VIP Room as well as ten smaller meeting rooms available the main building. More details here.


The Hibiscus Grand Ballroom, a grandeur of high ceiling set with modern art of chandeliers that can accommodate up to 450 pax.


The tallest ballroom in Port Dickson, the Sky Ballroom is another majestic ballroom with another gorgeous modern light fixture that amplifies grandeur with its high ceiling and plush décor. Located on 13th floor of the building, it can host up to 350 pax.



The main building also has an adult and kid swimming pool as well as children playground.


Then we proceed to check out the other villas on the petal and stigma of the hibiscus with our buggy.




The Premium Pool Villa is situated at the hibiscus petal area. The villa also features two king beds with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that renders a comfortable space, perfect for relaxing.



We moved next to the stigma where the Imperial Suite is located at. The Imperial Suite is beautifully spacious, all full 2,610 sq. ft. Each unit comes with three king size beds in two bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a deluxe living and dining area as well as a kitchen and bar. One can opt for the sea view or the fountain view.





The Imperial Suite also has its own private long infinity pool in the balcony area. It’s my favorite villa of the whole lot we viewed simply because of the way the villa is designed as well as the gorgeous view and space together with the infinity pool. There’s only six units of this suite if I am not mistaken.


We saved the best for last and that is the Presidential Suite. There’s only two of this suite located at the very end of the stigma. Set in 4,112 sq. ft. of space, the duplex suite has four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, offering privacy for big families or parties. The rooms all have magnificent views of the sea or fountain with glass panels on the floor to view the marine life below. One of the master bed room has its own outdoor Jacuzzi too.



There are two infinity pools in the balcony area. The expansive living and dining area is connected to the kitchen and bar and is lavishly spacious. As soon as one opens the glass door, there is a lovely welcoming breeze in the room as well as lots of natural lights from its glass panels.



We heard famous Taiwanese singer and songwriter Jay Chou was just here a few weeks ago too with his family and crew and stayed at this very Presidential Suite… obviously he has also heard of how gorgeous this place is.



We haven’t had the chance to venture into the nearby beach yet but we certainly could see the beach from one of the villas in the distance. We plan to check out all the outdoor places tomorrow.



After the tour, we headed to Roselle Coffee House for a simple buffet lunch. Roselle Coffee House is an all-day dining outlet serving local and international culinary offerings from breakfast to lunch and dinner as well as weekend hi-tea. Food from the buffet was passable but the a la carte menu of pizza was superb. Generous and large, we enjoyed the pizza a lot.



After this, we all headed back to our room for a rest. I had a short snooze while my boys did their own things catching some TV action before jumping in to the dip private pool…


Male bonding time with conversations that include Pokemon and some other stuff!
