The Thistle is a lovely resort away from the hustle and bustle of the main parts of Port Dickson. The amenities are quite nice with an adult only pool close to the sea and a much larger family pool area. We arrived with 33 teenagers in tow for a week long retreat and were provided daily with delicious food, excellent... More

We spent a night here and it was a last minute plan for our short getaway. The check-in was pretty fast. A lot of activities for family can be done. They have lego room,game centre, huge swimming pool etc. Plus, they have another swimming pool facing the sea next to the bar which is awesome for sunset view. Great location... More

The hotel is nice, spacious and comfy and I enjoyed my stay. I like that they have a spa facility and lots of greens around the hotel. I don't like the private beach because it's filled with sandflies that give you itchy bites and the sand is rough and muddy so it's a good view from the room but don't... More

This was not our first time there. It was probably our third trip. But we seem to always gravitate towards this hotel on our trips to Port Dickson. We have stayed in other hotels in Port Dickson as well. It is a good hotel for family vacations. There is a large swimming pool with an area for small kids and... More

I like its facilities, such as spacious swimming pool and field, games, etc. Once, my room was located at 2nd floor. It was a heavy rain out there. I couldnt sleep well that night due to the noise created... More

Given its location which is very near the capital of Malaysia, this beautiful property is situated approximately an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur. The best place to visit when commuting time is limited. Some research must be done to find good food but otherwise an awesome place for the family to have a short vacation and de-stressing time. The staff... More

We already knew of Thistle Port Dickson's great facilities. We checked out Chinoise (Chinese restaurant) and were delighted by the food. The Cantonese fried beef with spring onion, Sze Chuan soup and fish maw soup was really good. At breakfast, the Chinese Noodle Soup is inspired! The mixture of salted vegetable, tomato is great! I went back for seconds. The... More
