Wedding Venue at Batu Feringghi: Lone Pine Hotel
White, simple and elegant. These are three perfect words to describe this lovely hotel located on the Beach of Batu Feringghi. Although this hotel appears to have a simple-looking architecture, it boasts the charm and elegance of the British colonial times in Malaysia with its hanging plants and white facade.
Built in 1948, the hotel has quite a historical past as it was the first hotel to occupy the Batu Feringghi Beach. It makes the perfect wedding venue if you favor a garden wedding ceremony set in a scene of comforting tall trees with a view of the beach.
Over here, you are given the option of a sunset reception. Long tables will be set on a garden facing the beach with classic white table cloths and simple yet elegantly decorated white chairs. Basically, the theme is pure white bliss so even the things laid on the table will be white except of course for the cutlery and glasses. In case it rains, you can rent a transparent marquee for the occasion. The hotel can even arrange for fireworks on request.
