Avillion Port Dickson

I was in Avillion last week for 3-day training. I’ve been there twice for meetings before but this time, for some reasons, Avillion seems a lot more attractive this time. I think they improved on the landscaping quite significantly, as well as improving the condition of the beach. The water chalets are as usual, very impressive with a large day bed which can easily sleep another two persons, besides the twin/queen bed. The highlight is of course the open air shower, where you can shower under the moon or the sun, with birds flying overhead. Romantic or not? My only grouses – food at the coffee house was rather poor, and there were plenty of flies.


But I guess what changed my perception most is that I’m looking at Avillion from the eyes of a mother. Avillion is a really nice place to bring the kids. There’s a big children’s pool with water slide, a pet farm with rabbits, chicken and tortoises roaming freely, with designated time where children can participate in feeding or bathing of the animals. There’s also a kids area, Kids’ Cabin, with a playground, toys, and plenty of activities designed by the centre’s coordinators. I think Yiu Yiu would really love this place, so perhaps this calls for a family trip to Avillion.

Yes Yes, let's plan a family trip there. We can do it during the Merdeka weekend, Raya or Deepavali holidays.

Another option since it's on PD, we can just go during one of the weekends (go on Sat am, come bk on Mon or Sun)

Hi! Just stumbled upon your blog. Yeahh..we went to Avillion last year. Really love the place. Kids love it too. I think that's the only option to go if we go to PD.

Big bright head, thank for dropping by. Look out for their promotions, sometimes the deals are quite good.

Jazz, make it your next trip when Mr Hon is back. I'm sure you'll get lots of lovely photos too.
