Travel: Avillion Port Dickson

Early last month, my fiance and I made a trip to Port Dickson. It was another random idea we had on a weekend morning...

Off we went and landed ourselves at Avillion Port Dickson.Unfortunately, the resort was fully booked on the day we arrived. Disappointed, we made our way back to PJ. Not giving up, we went back again the next day. The customer service personnel at the front desk was helpful and realizing we returned, she gave us a  free upgrade from water chalet to premium water chalet.

Avillion Port Dickson is a lovely resort with absolutely friendly workers. Our premium water chalet has a beautiful view of the sea, an open sky bathroom complete with shower head, bath tub and a separate toilet.

The garden chalet looks equally nice from the outside.

There are 2 pools, 2 private beaches, a few lookout points and even a pet farm. Occasionally, we see peacock, chicken, and squirrel roaming around the resort.

I personally love this bell which we found at one of the pool area :)

Tumasek Beach, one of the private beaches.

The other private beach is called Riau Beach.

AviSpa is the only floating spa in Malaysia. One can view the sunset from here.

There are also rooms for karoake if one is into singing.

We also went kayak after our complimentary breakfast at Village Court Restaurant. The restaurant is situated next to the pool and has a casual setting.

The quality of the food served is really not too bad. I had roti canai and some pastries.

All in all, we had a pleasant and relaxing holiday at this resort.

When I got home, I went to the Avillion's website and found out there is a Picture Perfect 2 contest that offers a pre-wedding photo package. I decided to participate in the contest using the pictures we had taken from the trip itself. My fiance wrote the words for me and we worked together in choosing and editing the pictures we had selected. Below is our work and entry for the contest.

Guess what? A few days ago, we were announced as the winners of the contest!!! :)

Location: 3rd Mile, Jalan Pantai, 71000 Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia
