Written by Linda Jackson    


Getting married in Malaysia promises an exotic wedding venue and a romantic Malaysian honeymoon hotel. World-famous exclusive shoe designer Jimmy Choo, OBE, tells us his home country in Southeast Asia is a beautiful location for exquisite weddings and romantic honeymoons. Discover why…
Awe Inspiring Kuala Lumpur...

A mesmerising country of contrasts and a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, languages and landscapes, Malaysia is a destination so diverse, so friendly, and so intriguing that it proves irresistible to millions of visitors year after year who are drawn to the country like bees to honey.                                                             



Just imagine white sand beaches, startling blue skies, towering palm trees; a backdrop of mountains, lush rainforests, and awe-inspiring sunsets in hues of pink and orange. Think of exotic flowers, tropical rainforests, and fascinating wildlife; of crystal clear waters, a wealth of marine life, and stunning offshore islands. Imagine a vibrant capital with a dynamic nightlife, chic hotels, glitzy bars, towering skyscrapers, superb shopping, and atmospheric street markets. That, in a nutshell, is Malaysia – a country that also boasts a delectable Malay-Chinese-Indian cuisine, a kaleidoscope of landscapes, exceptional hotels and service, and an astonishing range of attractions and experiences.


Separated by the South China Sea, Malaysia is virtually split in two – namely Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia, or Malaysian Borneo.  To the north, Peninsular Malaysia is bordered by Thailand and to the south the country is connected to Singapore by a bridge and causeway: around 400 miles away, across the South China Sea, East Malaysia shares its southern borders with Brunei and Indonesia.
Spectacular Beaches...
The Northwest Peninsula, the most popular region for visitors to Malaysia, has gained notoriety because of its gorgeous beaches, plentiful attractions, green rolling hills of the Cameron Highlands, and fantastic offshore islands. One of the most popular Malaysian wedding and honeymoon destinations is the island of Langkawi with its idyllic beaches, luxurious hotels and resorts: another is Pangkor Island which has some of the best powder-white beaches on the west coast. The Southern Peninsula is known for its rich heritage and traditional architecture and, in the waters around the island of Tioman, which is located off the southeast coast, there is some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling to be found in Malaysia. On this beautiful island you’ll also find lovely sandy beaches with a dramatic backdrop of towering mountains. The Eastern and Central Peninsula is a nature-lover’s paradise, a region renowned for its wildlife, protected rainforest, and National Parks. 


Planning to have an exciting and wild honeymoon? Then head for Malaysian Borneo where the two states, Sarawak and Sabah, are prime destinations for nature lovers. Sarawak offers some remote regions, unspoilt natural beauty, and historical monuments; and Sabah a wide range of exciting adventure activities, wildlife spotting, and amazing Malaysia diving sites off the east coast – Pulau Sipadan is considered one of the world’s top five diving sites.
Fantastic Scuba Diving Opportunities...
Most visitors taking a holiday in Malaysia will pass through Kuala Lumpur, a vibrant city definitely not to be missed, so for that very special occasion, planning a two- or even three-destination honeymoon in Malaysia is worth considering, especially as the vast country is so diverse. Spend some days in the capital then move on to explore another region, or regions… to stay in a romantic Malaysian honeymoon hotel by the sea or in the rolling hills, to get married on an idyllic Malaysian island, or to honeymoon in a chic Malaysian hotel with a lush rainforest on its doorstep. 
For an exotic wedding and honeymoon in the capital of Malaysia choose a prime location in Kuala Lumpur and get married, for example, at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental which sits between the lush gardens of Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park and the soaring 88-floor Petronas Twin Towers (a famous landmark in KL), where you will enjoy stunning views over the city from the hotel’s floor to ceiling glass windows. Just imagine… a wedding with exotic floral arches and centrepieces, dramatic ice-carvings, sparkling city lights, the romantic glow of candles, and a gourmet wedding supper created by award-winning master chefs.
The Stunning Datai...
The stunning Datai.Honeymoon in KL for a few days and soak up the mesmerising ambiance of bustling days and glittering nights then fly off to a second destination to really chill out… perhaps to the beautiful island of Langkawi, one of Malaysia’s most popular destinations, with its sandy beaches, wooded hills, and luxurious hotels. Stay, perhaps, at The Datai – an unbelievably romantic and exclusive retreat nestling within an ancient rainforest yet within steps of a secluded white sand beach and the calm waters of the Andaman Sea.




Somehow the steaminess combined with the hypnotic sounds of the tropics set a romantic scene the minute you set foot in Malaysia, but just in case they don’t here are a few examples of the romantic things you can do in Malaysia… enjoy cocktails and intoxicating views at the chic SkyBar in Traders Hotel, KL; soak in a lovers’ flower bath; savour a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach served by your own butler; sail into the sunset on a Langkawi island cruise; enjoy hours of blissful spa treatments in a private couples’ room;
enjoy a buffet dinner and panoramic views at the top of KL Tower in the Seri Angkasa Revolving Restaurant; enjoy a sunset dinner cruise, or an intimate champagne dinner on your terrace…


As for Malaysian “experiences”, there are many:  walk the skybridge that links the Petronas Towers on the 41st floor for a bird’s eye view of Kuala Lumpur; try an encounter with orang-utans in Sarawak; climb Gunung Kinabalu in Sabah; trek in Taman Negara; go horse riding through the rolling tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands; dive in the Seribaut Archipelago off Pulau Tioman; take a cable car up Mount Mat Cincang, Langkawi’s second highest peak, and walk the scary steel bridge link to the neighbouring mountain…
For couples lucky enough to be thinking of getting married or honeymooning in Malaysia, this is just a taste of the feast of attractions and experiences you can expect to find there. As for Malaysian hotels, you will discover amazingly unique tropical retreats built with characteristic Malay style and offering the utmost in luxury… hotels where excellent service comes with a smile from the beautiful people of enchanting Malaysia.
When asked about getting married and having a honeymoon in Malaysia, this is what exclusive shoe designer Jimmy Choo, OBE – Tourism Ambassador to Tourism Malaysia, had to say…
“Malaysia, my home country, is a beautiful location for exquisite weddings and romantic honeymoons. Heavenly cuisine combined with gorgeous sunsets, sandy beaches and the sound of gentle waves lapping on the shore all add to the romance of that very special occasion.
For your wedding there are many choices - from a traditional wedding ceremony in a rustic village setting to an avant-garde celebration in Kuala Lumpur. For your honeymoon… relax on idyllic beaches in Langkawi, Pangkor or Tioman - be bewitched by sweeping coastlines and try snorkelling, diving, and windsurfing. Watch the sun rise over the plantations in the cool Highlands and explore Kinabula Park, home to Southeast Asia’s tallest peak. Malaysia is a land of contrasts from which you can pick your heart’s desire.
You really will be spoilt for choice in Malaysia… a country from which you will take home a lifetime of fantastic memories”
