Thistle Port Dickson

Today is the first day of my 2-days 1 night company's outing for this year ( yeah...yeah...as if we are having it every year ). It's nothing to shout about...really, coz the venue is only in Port Dickson i.e. Thistle Hotel.

Thistle Port Dickson is the first hotel launched in Asia under the Thistle Hotels Group UK. It is located at Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan with a private sandy beach shoreline. It was formerly known as Guoman Resorts before it has been taken over by the Thistle Hotels Group. Anyway, Thistle is part of the Guoman Hotel Management (UK) Limited,and is owned by Guocoland (Malaysia) Bhd, a subsidiary of the Hong Leong Group.

So, how's the place then ? Since it has just undergone the refurbishment process last June, so it is expected to be nice looking. In short, it was a beautiful resort, great for a relaxing weekend. The colour scheme and ambiance are peaceful, suitable for chilling out and family gathering. The place is very much child friendly with amenities such as playground, baby pool and children's playroom.

The pool by the way is awesome, huge with two kid pools with water slides. Endless fun for the kids of course. A pool which Marsya would really appreciate. The beach is quite clean as it is a private beach i.e. only open to the hotel guests. But it's not fair to compare it with the beaches in the East Coast though. There are also Jet Ski, Banana Boat & kayak for those who would want some adventures at the beach.

Overall, it was a nice hotel & highly recommended by me - be it for personal or corporate functions. Excellent location, with plenty to see and do. One thing good about this hotel is that they provide lots of activities. That explains the huge crowd from various organizations during our 2 days stay there.
