Say ‘I Do’ to these beautiful wedding destinations in Asia
WEDDING PLANNING stress can really take the fun out of getting married, especially when others are trying to make decisions for you.
Ideally, the to-be husband and wife should be able to decide on the nitty-gritty together, right down to the littlest details of the most important day of their lives.
For many, it is all-consuming and overwhelming. From picking a date to deciding on a theme, finalizing the menu and the guest list before confirming the RSVPs, there is no end to checking off to-dos on the list.
To take the stress off the whole shebang, if you and your significant other are seriously considering a destination wedding in Asia, then you are in luck because we may have a couple of beautiful places in mind.
Whether it is for your pre-wedding photography or the actual wedding, be it on a beach, in the middle of the sea, or up on a hill, here are some of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful wedding destinations in Asia:
Hyatt Regency, South Korea
Said to be the best location on the beautiful Jeju island in South Korea, Hyatt Regency is a five-star establishment that boasts celebrity treatment with world-class service. In particular, the white, ocean-view chapel certainly flaunts everything that Hyatt Regency and Jeju have to offer. The hotel also served as a filming location for the popular 2009 Korean drama, Boys Over Flowers, which shot actor Lee Min Ho to super-stardom.
Le Meridien Koh Samui, Thailand
Make your dream wedding a reality at Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa. The resort’s ocean pier, which floats 120 meters over the Gulf of Thailand, is the perfect setting for couples who want a romantic yet intimate, private wedding dinner. Imagine sipping on celebratory cocktails with your closest and most beloved as the sun sets on the horizon at the end of your special day.
Camp Netanya, Philippines
Divers love Camp Netanya Resort and Spa for its affordable diving experience, but couples will love it for its blue and white facade. Located on the tropical paradise of Anilao, Batangas, the luxurious Greek-themed resort prides itself on being the little Santorini of Southeast Asia. On top of quality accommodation and great service, guests can also enjoy the resort’s Mediterranean fare with a touch of warm Filipino hospitality.
Komaneka at Bisma, Indonesia
Who knew that just a 10-minute walk away from Bali’s popular shopping street, Ubud, is a tranquil oasis? Komaneka at Bisma sits on a peaceful location overlooking a river valley of tropical rainforest and rice fields, offering an amazing panorama of nature’s best. But that’s not all – Komaneka at Bisma’s iconic 33-meter lap pool is the jewel of the upscale five-hectare resort. You might never want to ever leave.
Enderong Resort, Malaysia
Named after a mountain stream called Sungei Enderong, Pahang’s Enderong Resort is an award-winning green project. Situated 2,000 feet above sea level, the resort is a sanctuary from the heat and humidity of the lowlands as it is cooled by mountain breezes with temperatures ranging between 21 to 28 Celcius. More importantly, Enderong Resort houses the Enderong Annexe, a two-story timber and glass building with an extraordinary multi-purpose hall that lets in light and views of the forest through its clear glass panels and doors.
Four Seasons Resort, Maldives
Fancy a small wedding in the middle of the sea? Look no further than Landaa Giraavaru’s Four Seasons Resort in Maldives. Located off the northeast tip of the island, accessible only by boat, Four Seasons Resort’s overwater wedding pavilion is a freestanding, pillared structure: light and airy with lofty vaulted ceiling and wrap-around, bi-folding floor-to-ceiling glass doors to three sides, opening onto timber decking. The most unique feature of the off-the-grid pavilion is the crystal clear aisle set on the chapel’s floor, offering a stunning view of colorful fish and resident sea turtles.
