Want to max your 'moon? Why not make it a two-stop and add on an exhilarating city break to your reef-side retreat? Our choice has to be a pitstop in Malaysia's oh-so-cool capital Kuala Lumpur.


Book two nights at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, an iconic landmark, resplendent in its colonial grandeur.

The location is just perfect; close to the bustling city for all its buzzy bars, cool restaurants and super fun shopping malls - it's the ideal twin-centre honeymoon package. Then hop on the speedy short internal flight to Kota Kinabalu and after a 15minute boat ride, you'll arrive at the magical Gaya Island Resort by YTL Hotels.

This hidden gem is a world away from the city excess of KL, think golden sandy beaches and intricate coral reefs with 120 villas nestled amongst tropical rainforest and protected mangroves.


Foodies will love it here - from mouth-wateringly fresh seafood to regional cuisine, the gourmet offering is second to none.

For the eco-conscious, Gaya Island Resort Marine Centre opened in 2013, which aims to promote turtle rescue, coral reef restoration and conservation through education.

Our highlight? Try your hand and rehabilitating and releasing sea turtles. This is honeymooning at its very best.
