Avillion Port Dickson for Valentine's Day

it's the lil' pleasures that keeps me blogging

A sudden urge to go visit Malaysia this year. I guess my love for beaches has been unleashed ever since I took my first step to organized my own short trip vacations. It started out with The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, which was amazing. Now I'm reliving my childhood memories by going back to Port Dickson. I can't say how long I have been away from this place. I could only remember fragments of my early childhood memories where my parents used to bring me there. I shall ask my mom why we kept going there tomorrow. 

Doing last minute "desperate" Valentine's Day planning and because I'm going to start working at a new place soon. I (repeat) desperately want to go to a beach area for at least 2 nights away from Kuala Lumpur. All other options were either too far, too near or out of "stock"! (out of villas/accommodation). Then I remembered Jean or Kenby said Avillion Port Dickson so I quickly google and found Avillion Port Dickson.

The website was well done, beautiful and mesmerizing. I don't remember Port Dickson looking so beautiful. That made me say "Fine, let's look at their rooms". Yes rooms are very important to me. While out there people are backpacking their way to budget hotels, motels and apartments, I secretly wished I could afford staying in a villa with my own private jacuzzi, butt naked, full stop. 

The Valentine's Day Packages

Hey there's Valentine's package! I quickly check the package offerings and scan through one by one like a hawk. Avillion Port Dickson ain't cheap my friends say. For sure, a hotel like this who won an award for being a Luxury Hotel Resort? also voted by travelers to be no.1 Hotel in Port Dickson? You can bet my butt naked ass that I'll be staying in Avillion and no where else. Apologies for the choice of words used, I wanted to express how important my selection is.

Looking over the sea at the Water Chalet

The chalets looks beautiful in the photos. There's Garden, Water and the Premium Water Chalets. Premium being the ones furthest away and nearest to the beautiful sea view. Villas are more expensive and they have the jacuzzis there. Unfortunately they are all fully booked (including the premium water chalets) for Valentine's Day which is the 13th-15th February, 2011. My only option was the last two remaining Water Chalets. I didn't want the Garden Chalet as I have already stayed in one at The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. It's time for a Water Chalet! besides the photos of the chalets looks amazing in the website, thought I can't help but hear the ringing words from Xana (an avid beach lover n traveller) that the chalets are already worn out. 

The modern contemporary Avi Spa

The Valentine's Day Package seems impressive. A 2 nights stay in the chalet of your choice, daily breakfast, a candle light dinner (5 course western meals at The Crow's Nest), a bottle of red Italian sparking wine, flowers for the lady (me), gifts for the couple, in house stroller (I have no idea what's this? it sounds like I have a baby on board) and lastly the most important thing for ol' me is the spa package! The spa packaged includes a welcome drink, foot spa and 60mins Avi Signature Massage for the lovely couple at the Avi Spa. I checked the website out and omg, lovin it already! 

The price to pay? a whopping rm1422++ per couple. Heck it's cheaper than staying 1 night at the Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat and Fiona says it's a wonderful romantic place to go. Let's support Malaysia Tourism for a change?

Port Dickson is about an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur

I rang my boyfriend immediately, frantically trying to secure a "yes" from him. It was tough but I manage to get the green light from him despite his pleas of relieving him from torture. His last conversation on Port Dickson was that how was I going to make him stay alive at such a place (Beach, water ain't his game, he gets high blood pressure). I can't believe this guy, he rather work 24/7 get high blood pressure than relaxing and enjoying the beach breeze and sand under his feet. I also remembered jealously, how he took off to go Phuket with his best friend Mark without a blink! (he stayed there for a number of nights & came back red like a lobster from the sun burn).

Barely a few minutes away from not getting my Valentine's Package!

I click to book the package, check in on 13th and check out on 15th, key in the details needed and wahlah. Booking done. I return to the main page again and try to check how many chalets are left. Guess what. Congratulations Tammy Lim. You have successful secure the last Valentine's Package at The Avillion Port Dickson and your search for a romantic getaway is complete (stage 1).

Yes, last package, last chalet, there's none left for the next couple (I pity u *evil laughter*). 


  1. Stayed at one of the Water Chalets when I attended a wedding there...the chalet was really nice...the best part for me was waking up to the sound of gentle waves rolling onto the shoreline...the swimming pool was really pretty too....the one where kids are not allowed. :)

  2. For the repayment, you'll need to pay back loan within 2 to 4 weeks too payday Loans online alternatives to payday loans - did you know the typical payday advance customer pays $793 in fees with a $325 loan.

  3. The lenders refuse them once they try to secure recent funds this service
    shouldn't be harnessed for excuse to obtain some extra money for party, vacation etc.

  4. Were there any material prepayment or origination fees within
    the quarter government loan modification
    this doesn't affect anyone merely trying to take advantage with the distressed sale market.
