Malaysia Honeymoons

With its long-standing reputation as a magical destination for couples, there’s lots to love about Malaysia. One of South-East Asia’s most established honeymoon destinations, Malaysia is the perfect place to wind down after a wedding.

For newlyweds, Malaysia ticks all the ‘dream honeymoon’ boxes: you’ll find some of the continent’s finest stretches of sand, and the choice of hotels and resorts is exceptional. There’s enough to keep the more adventurous bride and groom entertained, from pristine rainforests and tea plantations to its cool capital city, Kuala Lumpur. And, of course, there’s the food - a mouth-watering fusion of Asian cuisines.

Peninsular Malaysia also combines well with the Malay states of Sabah and Sarawak on the islands of Borneo. Spend as little as 1hr 45 mins in the air, and you can be exploring rainforests, enjoying the legendary Iban hospitality, trekking through millenia old rainforests and spotting primates such as gibbons and the enigmatic orang-utan.


Why choose Malaysia?

  • You’re likely to fly into Kuala Lumpur, the exhilarating metropolis that is Malaysia’s capital. While some honeymooners will prefer to make a beeline for the beach, most will settle in at one of the capital’s delightful hotels for a day or two – it’s the perfect place to get your first taste of Malaysia. 
  • We also recommend a visit to the cultural heart of the country, Malacca, just two hours’ drive from KL. It’s an absolute delight, providing a rare glimpse of the ancient Malay kingdom that once flourished there.
  • For adventure, there are the Cameron Highlands, where you can trek through the lush countryside or relax at one of the region’s atmospheric hotels. 
  • And then comes the hard bit: choosing a beach. This may be dictated by the weather, as each coast has its own wet season, which you’ll want to avoid. See further details for the Malay weather or ask one of our Selective Asia honeymoon planners, who will be able to advise you on where will best suit you.

For an extra twist, consider adding a few nights in Singapore at the beginning or end of your honeymoon. You can link to Malacca or KL with ease, it’s either a short flight or, for those wanting to take their time, there's a train providing an interesting overland perspective.
