For some reason, people tend to have a soft spot for infinity pools just like how some of us have a soft spot for pretty looking desserts.
Accommodation options with infinity pools would usually be higher in demand as it gives you the feeling that you are swimming towards the horizon, at the same time offering you a panoramic view of the skyline which normal pools can’t offer. Not forgetting that infinity pools are also photo-worthy, making it suitable for most occasions (i.e. birthday parties, gala dinners etc). On top of that, infinity pools are usually found in exclusive and luxurious locations (seen from Wikipedia), making it very popular for couples that enjoy privacy.
Combining all of the above, doesn’t it sound like a perfect place to hold your wedding?
Here are 5 options for accommodation found in the neighbouring countries that you can consider when you are planning for an overseas wedding with an infinity pool in mind.
Keeping in mind that these destinations are also romantic honeymoon destinations, you can take this chance to have a mini-honeymoon on the island after the wedding ceremony.

2) The Danna Langkawi – Malaysia
(Based on personal experience) The Danna Langkawi literally blew me away when I stepped into the hotel lobby. The decorations were so detailed and so grand that for a moment I thought I was in a palace instead. As I walked further into the hotel and reached the pool area, I was further blown away by how stunning and gorgeous the infinity pool is.
The Danna Langkawi also has a private beach in front of the infinity pool, making it an ideal location for couples planning a beach wedding.
