Beautifully designed to resemble from above the shape of Malaysia’s national flower, the Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson was already an award-winning, contemporary destination for discerning travellers. But the hotel owners believed they could also lay claim to having not just one, but two other unique features that would give them the edge in the saturated luxury hotel market. These were 643 swimming pools and 522 overwater villas – more than any other single resort in the world. Which, for a country where every kind of accommodation comes with a pool, to achieve such an accolade was no mean feat.

To get their brand message out there, louder, stronger and with more impact than ever before, Lexis Hibiscus knew that breaking two Guinness World Recordstm titles could create an exciting promotional splash. And mark the start of something really big during and after the event.

The breaking of these world records marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter with an official certificate-presentation ceremony in the resort itself on October 14, 2016, where Guinness World Records representative Swapnil Dangarikar officially unveiled and presented the plaques to KL Metro Group Managing Director Datuk Low Tak Fatt and Lexis Hotel Group President Miss Mandy Chew. Malaysia’s Deputy Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin and Tourism Malaysia’s Deputy Director-General Datuk Chong Yoke Har were also guests of honour at the ceremony. This far-reaching recognition and milestone by the RM400 million resort development has definitely propelled the Lexis brand into one of the most successful hospitality brand on a global scale.
