Earlier this month we had a mini family vacation in PD Negeri Sembilan. We stayed at Avillion Admiral Cove, and we chose this hotel more or less at random.
I visited the website and loved the rooms description, so we booked a room one week before and made our way there.
We arrived around 3pm on a Sunday, and found a parking spot in the covered car park.
Walking up to the lobby, we were greeted warmly and checked in promptly.
The studio room we stayed at costs RM250 a night. It had a comfy king sized bed which was clean, and had firm feather pillows. There is a ceiling fan above the bed.
The studio room came with a mini-pantry area, which was great because we needed to prepare milk for Rachel.
From the next photo, you can also see the 32 inch LCD TV and air conditioner.
Behind me was another 10 feet or so of space where the wardrobe is. The room was really huge!
Beside the bedroom (which can be partitioned off) there is a sofa / day bed.
Outside the room, you can see the PD marina. This is the view from the side windows.
This is the view from the front windows.
The hotel had a few facilities like a pool and a gym, but we didn’t make use of them.
You can walk over to the marina clubhouse and look at multi million dollar yachts.
Buffet breakfast is complimentary for room guests. The food is quite standard but still tasty. They served western and local food.
The menu is rotated so you don’t eat the same thing twice.
The hotel has a private beach, which is kind of deserted and relatively clean.
We visited a nearby ostrich farm, but I don’t recommend you visit it. There were sick-looking birds and nothing much to do (unless you paid more money for games or rides).
For our lunch and dinners, we went to eat at some of the restaurants nearby.
Two places we ate at, Kemang Seafood and Weng Yin Restaurant offered nice seafood without charging tourist prices. The prices are definitely cheaper than KL food prices.
We also had dinner at Sea View restaurant nearer to town. It was quite pricey (as in, KL restaurant pricing) but the view and atmosphere was amazing.
We really enjoyed our holiday at Avillion Admiral Cove. It was off-peak season, so the hotel service was great, and felt like we had the place exclusively to ourselves.
We’ll probably stay there again the next time we go to PD. We like the easy accessibility, close proximity of eating places, beautiful room, friendly staff and low density.
There’s nothing much to do in PD except eating and sea activities, but that’s okay if you like a quiet holiday.
