Honeymoon Getaways in Malaysia

Honeymoon Getaways in Malaysia
Malaysia is a paradise for honeymooners with its blend of exotic terrain, sun-drenched beaches, sea islands and luxury resorts. You can trek, explore caves, mountain climb, dive, sail, kayak and more in a variety of settings and then finish off the day with a spa treatment and a gourmet meal.

Tanjung Rhu Resort

The Tanjung Rhu Resort in Langkawi on the Andaman Sea is a beachfront complex with fine local and western dining options, a reading room with live pianist open to the sea breezes, three swimming pools, a spa and 135 luxury suites. The Rhu Romance package includes all meals, a private barbecue beachside dinner for two, flower petal bath, aromatherapy massage and airport shuttle. Watch stars at night through the resort's Meade ETX telescope and take a two-hour mangrove riverboat ride by day to view birds, mammals and exotic flora. Explore million-year-old limestone caves with a guide. Try its sunset yacht cruise with romantic dinner or a boat trip to an eagle feeding station on the river. The environmentally friendly activities at this eco-resort include non-motorized hydro-biking, sea kayaking, windsurfing and sailing lessons on a catamaran.

The Pangkor Laut Resort

Internationally acclaimed Pangkor Laut is a private island, minimally developed to retain the ecology while providing a luxury visitor experience. Stay in a wooden bungalow in the rain forest gardens or on an oceanfront hill. Choose a sea villa on stilts over the lagoon, accessed by a wooden walkway. A few spa villas link overwater rooms directly to the resort's spa. A resident naturalist leads a daily trek through the rain forest. Yoga, tai chi chuan and batik painting classes are offered for free, while sailboats and yachts can be chartered for private island dining and fishing expeditions, snorkeling tours, golfing and cruises in the Straits of Malacca. World-class dining and customized wedding and honeymoon packages are available. You can even plant a tree to commemorate your special occasion.
