Luxury Experiences in Asia for Romance, Weddings & Celebration Trips

We’ve picked 5 of the world’s finest destinations in Asia where high-end travel experiences go hand-in-hand with celebrating the most special occasions in life - including weddings, honeymoons and unforgettable romantic getaways.

#1 Choose The Maldives for Overwater Villas, Destination Dining & Beautiful Beaches

Amaya Kuda Rah!, in South Ari Atoll, is a 5-star beachfront resort that offers lovers Overwater Suites with private access to the pristine sea. After a sun-soaked day, you can make the shortest of trips to the beach for an intimate sunset dinner for two. And a midnight walk around the island sanctuary is a great way to create memories if you’re on your first holiday as a married couple.

For weddings, this marvellous hotel offers the choice between a dreamy ceremony on the white sandy beach or the resort’s Sunset Pavilion. 

Kuda Rah is also home to some of the best diving in almost 1,200 islands of The Maldives. And if you're looking for luxury that’s also environmentally responsible you can even be a part of a coral replanting project (something which may tempt you back for an anniversary trip a few years later when amid the bright Napoleon fish and sea turtles of a snorkelling tour, you could see how your coral has blossomed just like your love).

#2 Choose Siem Reap, Cambodia for Iconic Luxury & Culture

A 24-hour butler service. Cambodia’s biggest swimming pool. A state-of-the-art Spa with six treatment rooms. These three features alone tell you all you need to know about the luxury on offer at Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor.

Visitors to Siem Reap often marvel at this grand resort, lined by Frangipani trees, but only the guests get to enjoy the grand lobby and its colonial-style cage lift before heading for their first night between the finest sheets.

Guests at Raffles have a wide range of cultural activities to choose from. These include watching classic Apsara dances, taking part in Cambodian cooking classes or a wine and cheese workshop. The hotel will even take the hassle out of arranging your tours. Simply ask your butler about organising a trip that lasts anything from a couple of hours to two days. The splendid Royal Gardens and the temples of the Angkor Archaeological Park are both on your doorstep. Or, you could take a little more time and visit a colourful floating village on the amazing freshwater lake of Tonle Sap.

There can be few better ways to start a wedding day at Raffles than at the on-site Café d’Angkor, which is renowned for its signature champagne breakfast. An unforgettable ceremony can take the form of a monk’s blessing in the hotel gardens or at the nearby pagoda, ahead of a charming reception at the Temple.

If you’re planning a post-wedding trip, have a look at the resort’s 3-night honeymoon package.

*Please note Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor is currently closed for renovation however reservations can be made for October 2019 onwards.
