WW - Holiday getaway at Port Dickson

Taking a road trip to Port Dickson has always been at the top of our to do list last year. Having heard a lot of positive reviews about this village resort, we celebrated my birthday and wedding anniversary at Avillion PD last month.

From the cozy comfy chalet to exotic tranquil blue sea, white sandy beaches to spectacular sunset, I was totally impressed by the wonders of this place. The experience at Avillion was truly fascinating, because it's not a place we could afford to go all the time. During our 2 day stay, the last thing you would ever want was the TV or Internet where you could soak in the serenity of its surroundings and enjoy a great view overlooking the sea from the private balcony. It was certainly amazing as everything moved at such a slow pace and you could just feel the stress free lifestyle, no rush hour, just you lying by the pool taking a restful, cozy nap.

I've to thank my hubby who planned everything well, ensuring this birthday and wedding anniversary as unforgettable and meaningful like the ones we've shared together for the past 13 glorious years. God willing, we'll have many more wonderful years to share. Till death do us part.

Here are some shots of the resort for your viewing pleasure.




I love the long stretch of white sandy beach on which I could just laze around and do absolutely nothing but enjoy and drink in the beauty of sea.

The beach is regularly cleaned and the sand is fine enough for the kids to make their sand castles.
the water chalets are built on stilts over the clear blue sea

I absolutely love how the palm trees gently swaying to the soft rhythm of lapping waves.

The best part is all units come with a private balcony where you can enjoy peace of mind as you gaze out to the pristine sea. Isn't that amazing?



So, if you're longing for a relaxing getaway with the entire family, you'll find it all in Port Dickson. :)

  6. lina,

    it depends on room type or peak season. we stayed at the water chalet which cost us RM480nett per night. the room rates can be rather expensive considering the endless variety of amenities and entertainment to accommodate their guests needs.

  12. The last time B went here for company trip and he came back with not so good stories...esp since there was a water shortage there at that time, so no water for guests!

  18. It's truly beautiful. But makes me feel nervous after that horrific tsunami. I'm sure we will never see anything like it again in our lifetimes, but houses over the water which would have been appealing at one time make me shudder.

    used to go to 7th mile, or Blue Lagoon, or Cape Rachardo see the whirlpool.
    Hows the waters? Crystal clear?
    Wish I am there now, drinking coconute water, ha ha.
    Best regards, Lee.
