Vows And Celebrations In Kota Kinabalu

Feb 01, 2019

Whether you are a soon-to-be-wed couple originally from Sabah and returning to Kota Kinabalu for your wedding or perhaps a couple intent on hosting a destination wedding in another part of the country that has always captivated you, the aspiration is similar, that is, to have a meaningful and memorable celebration at a venue that not only boasts spectacular, panoramic views but also has the experience and know-how of assisting the couple plan for their nuptials from afar.

The fascination of a resort can be attributed to a number of factors :

  • A stunning location that accords scenic vistas, yet is centrally-located enough for family and guests to travel to easily.
  • Landscapes, both natural and curated, that are inspiring for wedding photography.
  • A brand that is renowned for its service and quality.

Be sure to plan ahead :

  • If budget permits, visit the resort in person to meet with their wedding team during the planning process.
  • Introduce your other wedding vendors, in particular if you have appointed a wedding planner, to the hotel’s events team.
  • Negotiate preferential room rates for your family and guests.
