Vacation with your loved one is not about getting away, it’s about getting in touch.
Words: Irvin Hanni
Lock in the love and reignite the fire in your relationship with an exotic romantic holiday in Malaysia. A country rich in natural beauty as well as in culture and heritage, you can be sure that whichever destination picked, a memorable affair awaits you love birds.
Intimate Island Fling
Nothing beats soft waves crashing gently on the glistening golden sands and swaying palm trees to serenade your lover. Malaysia with its well-known stunning shores offers plenty of that for the perfect island honeymoon.
Begin your love journey by pampering your sweetheart with the ultimate spa retreat at blissful Tanjong Jara or Pangkor Laut. Or marvel at Tioman Island’s gorgeous and colourful palate of corals and fishes while snorkelling together hand in hand. Your love is priceless; why not splurge on a private yacht cruise at Langkawi Island where you can luxuriate in scenic sunset sail over the Andaman Sea.
If you are after an intimate night under the stars, Kapalai Island lets you enjoy each other’s embrace while sipping champagne on your private bungalow deck, overlooking the beautiful and serene Celebes Sea. A private romantic candle light dinner on a secluded beach in Perhentian Island can also be arranged, chaperoned only by sultry breeze and the bright moonshine.
Exotic Date with Nature
Sand and sea not your cup of tea? Then, keep the passion burning with lots of warm hugs amidst cool climate at some of Malaysia’s most enticing nature spots. Plan a date at Kinabalu Park, a good place to see Bornean flora and fauna with the majestic Mount Kinabalu in the background. Or take pleasure in a stroll along the scenic tea plantations at Cameron Highlands and cap off your date with a spontaneous picnic with chocolate-dipped fresh strawberries and hot tea.
You can also make your way over to Kenyir Lake and indulge in total relaxation surrounded by the calm lake waters and ample greenery. The more adventurous couples will certainly like exploring the exotic tropical rainforest of Mulu National Park on a small wooden boat.
Nostalgia on the Heritage Lane
A leisurely activity is also food for romance. How about renting a pimped-out trishaw and spend a fun day sightseeing around Malacca and Penang, where together you take a walk down memory lane to see the unique fusion of Malaysian heritage mixed with western influences.
Meanwhile at the idyllic Sarawak Cultural Village, the lush traditional village setting not only paints a picturesque backdrop for a pleasant date but you’ll also get to experience the fascinating cultural traits of different Borneo tribes.
Rendezvous in the City
Rich cultural heritage amidst the brilliant cosmopolitanism, the cities of Malaysia are also buzzing with romance and glamour. What better way to see Kuala Lumpur than via a romantic helicopter ride? Love is literally in the air as you fly 1000 feet above ground level on a scenic tour around the capital city with the one you adore. The great cityscape can also be enjoyed from atop KL Tower, where you savour an exquisite candle light dinner at the Atmosphere 360⁰ Revolving Restaurant.
If height makes you dizzy, how about a téte-á-téte by the water? Surprise your partner with an enticing dinner cruise along the Tebrau Straits in Johor Bahru. Or perhaps you both would like to hop on a lovely traditional boat sail around Lake Putrajaya and cherish a tranquil moment while marvelling at the great buildings.
And like cherry on top of a cupcake, end your passionate holiday with a stroll along the Kuching Waterfront during sunset. Hand in hand and sharing an ice cream cone together, a sweet moment like this is simple but will definitely be treasured for a long time.
With endless romantic getaways ready to fill your fling with passion, it’s time to whisk your lover away for a truly unforgettable vacation in Malaysia. After all, couples who travel together stay together, agree?
