Weddings & Vow Renewals
Wedding Photographs by Marion Le Roux
We rented Rahasia Manis for our wedding celebration and we couldn't imagine a better place for our three-day wedding. The space provided everything we needed - places for relaxation, dining and celebration, as well as tours and activities for the guests. And of course, the whole property is incredibly picturesque. The natural beauty and impeccable decor added a sense of rustic elegance to the entire occasion.
The property truly balances comfort with a feeling of being close to nature. Our friends and family continued to praise how beautiful the property is and how lovely all the staff are. The staff really went above and beyond to make our day special, and the management were well-organized and stayed on top of everything we had discussed. Despite everything else going on, the place was kept clean and there was always someone available to help if needed.
We feel so fortunate and thankful to have been able to celebrate our special day in such a wonderful setting and with such friendly people helping make it all possible. We would gladly return for a holiday to simply enjoy this lovely space again.

The invitations have been sent out; your family and friends are making reservations and looking for the perfect gift.
