The Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson held its official opening last week, marking the third Lexis property in the state of Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus and the first in the district of Si Rusa along Pasir Panjang beach.
The resort stands apart in the industry with its unique concept whereby every guestroom is equipped with a private dip pool and steam room. It also reinforces Port Dickson as a major tourism destination in the state.
Lexis hibiscus is the leading and largest resort in Port Dickson and one of the famous icons in Malaysia. Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson provides the finest in accommodation, dining and meeting in Negeri Sembilan.
Working hand in hand with the government, it is committed towards promoting tourism in Port Dickson, which continues to see a healthy demand for upscale accommodation from discerning travellers, covering business and leisure segments from both locally and abroad.
The ceremony was officiated by Chief Minister of Negeri Sembilan, Datuk Seri Utama Haji Mohamad Hasan and during his speech shared that the state government is currently diversifying its economic portfolio and hoping to focus more on hospitality and tourism industries in the coming years.
With plenty of job opportunities being offered to the locals, the resort has contributed positively towards the state’s tourism industry. As of to date, the properties within Lexis Hotel Group have attracted more than 3.6 million tourists from across 126 countries, comprising 50% of overseas guests from its guest portfolio. It had also brought in tourism dollars to the state.
“We do not want people to come to Port Dickson only on weekends, but on weekdays as well. This is where the MICE segment comes in to give the much-needed support so that hotels and resorts here are regularly filled with customers,” he said.
The Resort’s encouraging occupancy and guest portfolio is fuelled by demand from FITs, tour series, corporate and MICE (Meetings, Events, Conventions and Exhibitions).
Located about an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and nestled along Pasir Panjang beach, Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson sprawls into the Straits of Malacca and resembles the national flower of Malaysia.
