Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan (December 2008)

We bought the PD Legend Water Chalets 3 days 2 nights voucher during 2008 Matta Fair, which we managed to get at a slightly cheaper rate than the normal one. Hubby and I have been postponing this trip twice since August due to busyness but since the voucher will expire at the end of 2008, we decided to utilise it this month, finally! :)

The hotel? Well, I’m not too sure whether we were the one who’s having high expectation of the place since it’s a brand new 4-star hotel (launched in 2007) or was it the hotel who’s not up to its supposedly standard. Being one of the latest hotels, this place has a lot of weaknesses in terms of compound area, the way it’s being built, small swimming pool, lack of landscape, gardens, etc. Everything is just not right about this hotel, except for the food (their buffet breakfast spread is delicious though, at least something to remember about, he he).

Ok, that’s about the exterior. As for the interior, the room is pretty small but the bathroom is big, with a huge bathtub in it! So the bathtub is where we’ve been in most of the time (oopsy!) since it’s a little bit cramp in the room. Apart from spending time at the hotel, (well, of course you don’t expect us to spend the whole trip just in the bathtub, do you) we took a drive around PD town and went to one of the most hype mall there, which is the Oceanic Mall. Had few games of bowling and I lost terribly (guess I need to persuade my colleagues to start the bowling ‘practise’ again when they are back from their studies!).

At the hotel lobby, pretty small for a 4-star hotel.

Chalet area.

Take a walk at the beach.

The trip was over all ok. At least we had given the Legend Water Chalets a try. While we were there, we went to the Avillion to have a look and boy, from the outside the place looks far better than Legend Water Chalets! We are planning to give it a try in 2009, InsyaAllah. Will definitely share our reviews on that :)

Till our next trip, tata!
