Dream of a sea side nuptial against a sunset backdrop? Well in commemoration with the month of love, we highlight some romantic and secluded destinations to say ‘I Do’ around Asia.
TANJONG JARA RESORT | Terengganu, Malaysia
If a wedding ceremony seeped in Malay tradition set on grounds that emulate the grandeur Malay palaces is your wedding fantasy, then there is no better destination than Tanjong Jara Resort.
The resort offers four types of unique wedding packages, all of which include a complimentary honeymoon stay. The Malay tradition does not stop at the architecture but extends to the wedding ceremony where the couple partake in a procession led by colourful bunga manggar and accompanied by a group of kompang (Malay drum) players. The grandest package is the aptly named Royal Wedding which sees the whole resort and its rooms reserved for the couple and their guests.
THE NAKA ISLAND RESORT & SPA | Phuket, Thailand
Naka Island is a postcard picture of what a wedding destination should look like. The turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay, lush gardens, tropical-inspired grounds that give foundation to the luxurious villas are everything you need for that picture-perfect nuptial.
The wedding package features the choice of two locations, their lawn and beach area that can accommodate 80 guests for a dinner by the beach. Take it up a notch with the exclusive hilltop Royal Horizon Pool Villa that can host up to 60 guests while you say your vows on a deck on top of an infinity pool overlooking the Andaman sea. One can choose to get married in the traditional Western style or opt for a Thai wedding ceremony complete with a Buddha set up and a Holy water pouring ceremony.
