  1. Malay Farmers’ Hut, Langkawi, Kedah, Malaysia

Price: RM173 per night

Accommodates: 2

Are you looking for an affordable, secluded honeymoon spot? We think this cosy wooden hut makes a great pick. It’s just a five minute drive away from Cenang Beach, but is part of a gated compound surrounded by paddy fields so you’ll have guaranteed peace and quiet! There’s WiFi for the tech lovers, but no air conditioning; the evening breeze and fans ensure enough cool air. Hosts Ruben and Marina stay in a separate house, but will be onsite to cater to your needs, including complimentary airport pickup upon arrival and a breakfast basket containing seasonal fruits and eggs.

  1. Templer Park Rainforest Retreat Villa, Rawang, Selangor, Malaysia

Price: RM1,003 per night

Accommodates: 16

If you live in Klang Valley and don’t feel like venturing too far out of town, but would still like a more natural experience, this rainforest retreat in Rawang will do the trick. You don’t even have to leave the state! Bring all your friends, the more the merrier: there are four bedrooms all equipped  king beds, with an extra bunk bed and sofa bed in two of the rooms, so there’s plenty of space. The bathrooms are equipped with heated water harvested from the roof solar panels. Take in the scenic mountain view, or relax your muscles in the infinity pool (that comes complete with jets!). The host, Saw, takes immaculate care of the environment, so make sure you keep the place clean.
