Thistle goes International

Get ready to experience the charm of South East Asian hospitality.


The first to launch in June 2009 is located in Port Dickson on the west coast of Malaysia, set on 90 acres of tropical paradise. Only a 45 minute drive from downtown Kuala Lumpur, our lavish 5-star resort, has a private 3km sandy beach shoreline that meets the Straits of Malacca. Welcome to a beautifully balanced world of sun, sea and golf.

Ideal for either business or pleasure, you can retire to one of our 247 modern bedrooms, with breathtaking views overlooking the delightful "Straits of Melaka".
