Avillion – Port Dickson

What a great weekend we had over 27th and 28th April 2013!!!   Friday night was dinner with fellow Australian’s – parents of Molly’s school friends.  We spent the night sitting outside drinking and reminiscing about old TV programs from the 70’s to the 90’s – way too many to name but was great recalling them all.

After a late Friday night we were then Saturday morning to head down to Port Dickson and escape Kuala Lumpur. Our first time to Port Dickson and was about an hour and half’s drive.

Around the Avillion Resort

 

We had heard mixed reviews from people but for us it was a great weekend. Yes the beaches are not great but our resort – the Avillion – was and it gave us everything we needed to rest and escape KL.

We checked in and then headed to the pool for a swim and a late lunch and drinks.  The resort has two pools of which one is adults only.

Our room was a villa over the ocean and included entry to the Avi Club for afternoon tea and then later for cocktails.  This was a beautifully done room and outdoor area which gave stunning views of the sunset.

At 5pm we followed Awang, a 24 year old monkey, and Zul his trainer down to the beach and watched Awang pluck coconuts.  We then drank and ate the coconuts down at the beach.

Sunday morning was a run for me along the beach – a bit disappointing to see the rubbish left on the public beaches but interesting to see how many Malaysians were camped on the beach and then getting up for a morning wash in the ocean.

Kerrie did Tai Chi on the beach while Emily fed animals at the petting zoo. Seeing a Peacock present himself to a Peahen was also exciting.
