“Dated and in the middle of nowhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

The hotel is quite dated and the decor tired. We stayed in a room with a private pool and these were clean and reasonably furnished although there was no outdoor seating in the pool area. Breakfast was included and was varied and of good quality, but this Hotel is stuck in the middle of nowhere with the nearest town, Port Dickson, being most unattractive and positively uninviting.

Stayed one night in the Sky Pool Grand Villa for 6 pax. This was the only villa that comes with a connecting room. The main room has 2 king size beds and the connecting room has another king size bed. Both rooms were very comfortable in size.

There were 2 huge bathrooms with separate toilets and amenities. An outdoor shower was usable as it was very badly maintained. A bamboo pole was lying across the middle of the outdoor rain bath which was very unsightly.

We loved the private indoor pool which provided a lot of privacy. As it was sheltered, there was limited sunlight so tanning is out of the question.

Cleanliness can be further improved. We found strands of hair and stain on some of the pillows. There was no way the housekeepers would have missed it as they were on the top pillows.

Complimentary wifi was great but rather slow.

The resort has no beach attached to it but there's an outdoor pool that guests can use. There is also a recreation room with some old arcade machines, and pool tables.

There are two restaurants in the resort. We had dinner at the Japanese restaurant and the food were fresh and delicious. All of us had a bento each for about S$20 - $25.

Complimentary breakfast was available with the room but the buffet spread was not great. The only consolation was the eggs station where your eggs can be cooked in any ways on the spot.

The resort was not difficult to find and the direction map given by the hotel was accurate.

Room with attached swimming pool is definitely an one of a kind experience. however room maintenance, cleanlinesss and furnitures can be further improved to prove a 4-5 star experience with the price paid. Certain part of the alley should be at nite for security reasons. Complimentary In-room wifi is definitely a plus point, but signal is not strong causing disconnection and frustration.
Breakfast buffet variety is good.

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise getaway for my birthday. He had problem booking online for the Premium/Executive villa on the Sea, so he booked the Deluxe Room.
Upon arriving about 6pm, immediately he requested for an upgrade but the recept replied that all Premium and Executive Villa were fully occupied. However, upon checking the following morning, another recept said that there were actually 2 rooms available at that time we checked in.
The bellboys were all very helpful. We were sheltered into a buggy to our villa as it was raining. The room was very clean with a dry Kitchenette. Very well oriented furniture settings. They welcomed us with a fruit platter. The 2 king size beds were very comfortable.
We had our dinner at the Japanese Restaurant. Do double check the price with the waitress before ordering per plate sushi. Price can mean per plate also can be for per piece. But ultimately we are surprised how delicious the meal turn out. Really worth the money.
If you intend to go for the spa, do book them earlier even before you arrived. They hardly have any slot available.
The game room are very spacious. They just started issuing package coupons at RM68 . Do get it for good saving if you intent to explore all the activities. There are sand art and Batik Painting to keep the little ones occupied. Also obstacle course, cycling, fishing, WII game, Sumo Wrestling, archery, etc.
The private pool was much cleaner than the common pool. Do note your voice can be heard over the next door swimming area. Besides that, those with small kids, please do be cautious that the ledge on the door to the private pool is reachable by young kids.
The breakfast buffet spread was just average and they provide a variety of spicy dishes, so there are limited choice for the younger ones. There are Taiwanese porridge, steam buns, cereal, toast but no cakes and pastry.
We had dinner at the same restaurant that serve breakfast and the food was great. The cakes were fabulous and rich. My kids and helper love the Ice Creams~Banana Split.
I would like to give them a 5 stars if not because for the misinformed booking by the receptionist and the limited breakfast spread as compared to other hotel that I've visited. Another concern is the security. As our room is located along with the villas a short distance away from the main lobby and it is accessible by anyone from the main road. We don't see any guard at the barricade. This really is a concern even though they have security system installed on the room main door.
Do bring insect repellant, scented candle/incense to ward off the insects.
I've attached some photos. Hope it helps you to make a choice.
Do remember, if your budget allow, do go for the Exec/Premium Room on the Sea. I managed to snap a few pictures while the cleaner was cleaning and vacuuming the private pool.

Room Tip: Book the Premium/Exec Room on the sea if budget allow. Look out for promotion rate on the web.

I would highly recommend this hotel for family stay with kids . The room is big with private pool attached, my kids love it. Overall service quality is good too where you wouldn't experience in most of the hotel in Malaysia. It resembles very much of a Balinese style setting, very relaxing !
My only complain will be the hotel food , not much of choices . But if you are driving you can find nice food easily outside. Don't go to Old Town Cafe though, the food is horrible with flies greeting you! :p

Everybody is dreaming to buy a Banglo with Pool someday BUT with Grand Lexis Premier Pool Villa you can stop dreaming Now!
It has a Big Room (plus comforter you can accommodate easily 10 people in 1 room), Big Beds (2 King Size), 8 Nice Pillows, a 32in LCD, a DVD Player, a Satty, a Kitchen, a Spacious Split Bathroom AND THE BEST PART is.. it comes with a PRIVATE POOL Big Enough for the whole family to fit in!!!
Price worth? Well it really Value for Money considering all the above and 1 night seems not enough.
I'm infact having fun and a sweet time. No need to worry for the children coz u can easily see them inside the pool from your bed! Wow its really nice and relaxing.

The room was extremely large with 2 large king-sized beds and private pool. I found the private pool very nice since it was cleaner than the main pool. The resort is beautiful but do expects some ants in your room since it's a tropical location. We had a water chalet with a glass bottom floor. The food was ok. We had a snack when we arrived which was very good. The bento box dinner was nice too. The breakfast buffet was ok. There are some activities such as renting bikes, archery set, and ping pong. But not much other things to do there. We order extra towels they wanted to charge for but never arrived.
