Where to Stay in Port Dickson

Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Port Dickson

Halfway between Kuala Lumpur and Melaka and approximately 34km southwest of Seremban, Port Dickson (PD) is a port town-cum-beach resort that is a popular weekend spot for locals. The state government’s efforts to improve the town’s aesthetic appeal have paid off as the beach, which was once notorious as a rubbish-laden strip, is now clean and litter free and as a result there’s more tourist traffic than ever. The town centre itself is little more than a few shops and banks, but there’s a good spread of accommodation options ranging from budget deals for the backpacker-savvy crowd, family-friendly mid-range ventures and luxury properties for the more up-market clientele.

Easily topping our Editor’s Guide to Port Dickson is the sprawling and luxurious Thistle Port Dickson. Spread across 90 acres of award-winning landscaped grounds with manicured lawns, the five-star Thistle is set in the refurbished Guoman Resort and is one of PD’s newer hotels.

Hotel facilities include a nine-hole golf course, an outdoor swimming pool, a kid’s wet play-zone, three restaurants, a fitness centre, two tennis courts and nine meeting rooms.
