Scheduled to open in 2024, a five-star luxury resort situated adjacent to the existing Lexis Hibiscus in Port Dickson, is to be developed as a joint venture between Kuala Lumpur Metro Group and Menteri Besar Incorporated (the Negeri Sembilan Government investment arm).
New Luxury Resort for Port Dickson
The gross development value is estimated to be RM500 million with the property featuring 760 rooms comprising 582 water villas and 178 sky pool villas. Just like the existing Lexis Hibiscus, each villa in the new resort will feature its own private dip pool to offer unsurpassed luxury and privacy.
When completed, it is anticipated that the new development will attract 400,000 visitors annually to seaside Port Dickson and, based upon a predicted daily spend of RM600 per tourist, the project should generate tourist receipts of RM240 million per annum.
The opening of Lexis Hibiscus 2 will strengthen the Lexis’ brand’s footprint in this Malaysian seaside town and enhance the international appeal of Port Dickson as a leading tourist destination. The premier Malaysian hotel group will continue to work closely with the Malaysian Government to promote Port Dickson as a leisure, business and MICE holiday destination.
The Kuala Lumpur Metro Group currently operates several properties in Port Dickson. Lexis Port Dickson, Grand Lexis Port Dickson and Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson have attracted 5.2 million tourists with half of this number being foreign tourists from some 156 countries.
Key facilities at Lexis Hibiscus 2 include a sunken aquarium with a built-in restaurant (the first of its kind in Malaysia), a grand ballroom to accommodate 2,000 delegates (the largest ballroom in Negeri Sembilan) and Hibiscus Walk – a unique outdoor dining and shopping precinct featuring rows of street food stalls offering authentic Malaysian cuisine.
The current Lexis Hibiscus is considered the largest water homes development in the world and the new Lexis Hibiscus 2 will only enhance this positioning.
