Its one of the better hotels in PD.. If your budget permits, get the villas that sit on stilts above shallow waters.. The kids will love looking down into the sea.. Can see fishes etc when the tide is high enough

Was there very long ago, nice layout, at that time they were the few with open skylight shower. But straits of Malacca view and the water nothing much to shout.

Ya those over e water u switch on spot lights at night when high tide it attract all sorts of fish etc. Like a huge fishtank in yr floor.

If u got gps easy. Just set n it go.

If not take nshw till turn off to pd hway then abt <1 hr u reach.

Hard to get lost as one main road along e coast n all resorts along coast.

Just drive slowly as u reaching n u can see their signboard on yr right.

Chk google maps fr location n print out n bring along.

Last time i stayed at Eagle Ranch. Almost at e end of e coastal road.

Lots of chinese seafood coffeeshops along e road fr yr lunch n dinner. Cheap n good. There r several beaches to stop n enjoy n some hv makan stalls along e beach.

Have fun.

Am a regular visitor to Avillion Port Dickson Resort.

Driving is extremely easy. From after checkpoint (Woodlands or Tuas) to resort should take you about 3 hours when keeping within speed limit. From North-South Highway, join directly to Seremban-Port Dickson Highway. At the end of the Seremban-PD Highway, it's only about another 4 km to resort.

Resort is worth going if you are travelling with young children. Two types of chalets : water (built on stilts over the water) and garden (built over land). Water chalets have open air shower, have to walk outdoors through garden path to reach rooms. Garden chalets are larger and cheaper but no open air shower. Kids will love the morning pet feeding when staff will bring food for the children to feed the animals in the pet enclosure. Other activities for children - pizza making, prata making, etc. 3 swimming pools - slide pool for kids, family pool with Jacuzzi and adult only Olympic size pool. Car park safe with security guards. Food in resort not worth spending money on, other than the included breakfast. Be adventurous and drive out for cheaper and better food.

The negative : Malaysian level cleanliness and maintainence. Beach not good - sand flies. Sea water not clean - typical Straits of Malacca water, like Singapore's beaches.

If travelling without kids, Grand Lexis Port Dickson (not to be confused with Lexis Port Dickson) is more suitable. All units have private pool.

Thanks for the recommendation bro, Grand Lexis looks good! I'm going to make a trip up very soon :)

Enjoy your trip to Grand Lexis. The units not suitable for children as the private pool in your room can be very dangerous for unsupervised children.

A good place to eat is a coffee shop/cze char in Lukut town called Lucky Seafood, about 45 mins' drive away. Good, cheap seafood. Good lala, bamboo clam, etc. They are famous for their curry chicken baked in a giant bread bun, almost 1 foot across. Otherwise, can drive to Seremban town for food and a little bit of walking around. A new township called Seremban 2 have a large Jusco/Aeon mall.

Weekend getaway still not that bad.

If planning to go during the June holidays be prepared for the crowd everywhere: breakfast spots (both levels 1 & 2 packed and queue super long), swimming pools & beach.

Do take precaution at the beach because of sandflies. My boy kena jialat jialat last year when we were there.

Other than that PD is a quiet town and many makan places if you like to drive around.

I second the comment about the congestion during breakfast.

Went once with frds during a long weekend. The queue during bf was scary! End up the resort had to open up the ballroom on the second floor as an alternative.

There are 2 pools IIRC. One is meant for family (kids included) while the other is solely for adults. The pools are open 24 hrs a day!

As for parking, there are 2 parking lots. One is directly in front of the lobby but is very very small. The other is across the road from the resort. Much bigger and both car parks have security.

There is a small stretch of shops + pasar malam around 300 metres away from the resort.

PD is rather quiet. So wifey and I did a day trip up to KL which is only around 1.5 hrs drive away. Then came back after dinner.

Remembered there was this foul-tempered monkey two trips ago at Avillion PD.

This big macaque was part of the daily plucking coconut programme for the tourists but apparently he not happy with the handler and bared his fangs at him numerous times.

And while climbing the tree and plucking the coconut also buay song very deliberately slow machiam like us humans like that.

Backed away at a safe distance with my kiddos when the fella first showed aggression.

This shows animals also have bad days at work laugh.gif laugh.gif
