Down A Green Aisle on White Sands

If it’s a beach wedding you have always been dreaming of, you are definitely staying in the right region. Perennial sunshine, sparkling seas, fine white sands… just name it and you’ve got it. Southeast Asia has the best selection of islands in the world, so make use of the salubrious climate, pick your island and hold the wedding in the tropics you have always been dreaming of.

Just 45 minutes away from Singapore, Bintan Island is one strong contender for your consideration. Other than meeting all the necessary requirements for a tropical island backdrop, exclusivity and privacy is a plus.

With a host of resorts catering to various budgets, you can be sure to find one that suits your needs. For beach and sun lovers, check out Nirwana Gardens and Mana Mana, which offer plenty of sea sports, sun and affordable accommodation. However, if you are bringing the elderly, you might have to consider other resorts around. If you are all for luxury and exclusivity, then Banyan Tree and Angsana are your best bets. At the pinnacle of luxury, check out the spa villas of Banyan Tree!

If you are a typical Singaporean foodie, you would be glad to know that an array of wedding reception choices awaits you. Excellent Thai food is served at Baan Aarya near the Indra Maya villas and seafood is a must at the Kelong Seafood Restaurant. The resorts’ in-house restaurants also offer their own choices. Just talk to the chefs or hotels to create your dream reception!
