If you’re looking for an exclusive beach resort for your next vacation, you should consider Berjaya Langkawi Resort in Malaysia. With a naturally enchanting setting, it’s one of the best places in Langkawi to unwind.
Two weekends ago, one of my best friends had her wedding at Berjaya Langkawi Resort. She lives in Canada and it was through many emails, messages, video calls and almost a year of planning to make this happen. She wanted to have a beach wedding ceremony back in Malaysia, and Langkawi seemed to be the most suitable place to have it. We wanted her Canadian in-laws to experience some Malaysian cultures and to experience a different environment than what they would be used to. With a lush tropical rainforest and a gorgeous beachfront, Berjaya Langkawi Resort became our preferred choice.
The lobby itself looks grand and we loved how the hotel is a blend of traditional Malay architecture with some modern contemporary interior design.
We stayed at the Rainforst Chalet which was surrounded by lush greeneries in an age-old tropical rainforest. Built on stilts with traditional Malay wooden exteriors like a traditional Malay house, the interior had more contemporary furnishing. Because the resort is huge, you need to ride on the hotels shuttles to get to your room.
The wedding couple on the other hand, were staying at the Premier Chalet on Water which is a series of chalets built on stilts out over the open waters with a beautiful view of the Andaman Sea.
This is the Pahn-Thai Restaurant near the chalets.
It’s definitely very different from the Rainforest Chalet and the warm colour tones of the interior made it very pleasant.
I loved the balcony the most. It was a great place to relax especially with the ocean breeze.
The swimming pool area was stunning with an amazing view of the mountainous landscape and a short walk from the lobby to the beach.
This is the beach front where the wedding ceremony and dinner were. It started raining in the early afternoon and I was ecstatic when it stopped raining a few minutes just before the Hotel Brand Manager (Roger) called me for my decision to have the ceremony on the beach or to move it into the ballroom. Of course it should be on the beach! (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o))) I would have been literally jumping for joy if I wasn’t having my makeup done at that time.
The theme of the wedding was royal blue, based on one of their favourite hockey teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs. The decorations were wonderful and I don’t think we could have asked for more. Roger and the florist did an amazing job with the decorations. The flowers were actually orchids that were originally purple dendrobium which were dyed blue, the white center absorbing the dye to create this amazing colour. I didn’t have time to snap any photos, what with me having to do my bridesmaids duties and all, so I snagged a few photos taken by some of our friends.
And the gorgeous bridesmaids of course. And an accidental photo bomb by a friend. A shout out to the makeup artist Style by Jayne Tan who made us look our best!
I had a blast planning this wedding for Jake and Ming. Glad that they were very happy with everything. Our photographer Chun Chung from LightFrame Photography also did a great job capturing the special moments.
The wedding package also comes with a romantic dinner on the beach for the couple. This was the night after the wedding day and it looked great.
What We Loved: I loved the fact that we were both by the rainforest and the beach. It was so relaxing and peaceful. It is also walking distance or you can take the hotel shuttle to the oriental village, cable car and sky bridge.
What We Didn’t Love: Location. It’s 20 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Pantai Cenang, one of the popular beach towns on Langkawi Island. So unless you’ve rented a car, you’re sort of stuck there unless you grab a taxi.
