Tasik Villa International Resort
Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.
It is nice to pamper oneself in luxury, more so while on holiday. Tasik Villa International Resort in Lukut, Port Dickson is all about luxury. While Port Dickson is a coastal town, Tasik Villa International Resort sits inland with luxury chalets on a lake, luxury apartments, and bungalows, etc. to pamper guests with a delightful stay.

We recently stayed at the resort (May 2019) and during our check-in we were told that a musical fountain show will be starting in a few minutes. We left out bags at the Front Desk and headed to the lake to enjoy the musical fountain show. The musical fountain “danced” to the tune of some well known songs and it was a delightful show. I believe that by luck we checked in right before the start of the show and that show was indeed a grand welcome to the resort.

Luxurious Rooms / Suite
After the musical fountain show we headed up to our rooms. I stayed at a room in the tower. Upon opening the doors I was surprised at what laid before me. I was expecting a nice hotel room but what I saw was above what I expected. The room is actually a suite and it is big. It is also well decorated in luxurious European styles.
Nice leather sofa and wooden table in my room.
The room I stayed in came with two plush and comfortable king size beds, a lovely leather sofa, a very nice coffee table, a place to do some simple cooking, a bathroom with vanity room, and another huge bathroom with a door that leads out to a jacuzzi in the balcony (no accessible via the door in the hall). Some of the units at the tower has a private jacuzzi at the balcony; amazing. This went beyond my expectations given the price of the room.

On our first day we spent the entire time in our amazing room. It took about an hour to fill the jacuzzi (due to its size) and then the rest of time was just spent soaking in it. Also, sitting at the balcony was relaxing and that cleared my mind hence allowing some creative juices to flow. I got a good bit of work done before calling it a day.

The next day we had our breakfast at the Tasik Restaurant And Cafe in the resort. The buffet is good with a decent spread to choose from. The restaurant is delightful with a good view of the lake and some of the activities available at the resort.

Activities For Some Added Holiday Fun
After breakfast we headed to the lake where we boarded a boat and went around the lake just for the experience. For those who love a bit of paddling and rowing, activities available here at the lake include paddle boats, and kayaking.
For those who prefer to play about on solid ground, there are bicycles, electric bike (scooter), board games, etc. for rent just by the lake. There is an infinity pool for those who enjoy taking a dip and swimming about, something to enjoy especially to cool down on a hot day. As for children there is a pool with a castle and a slide for them to have lots of fun at.
