A truly excellent wedding hotel features three notable components: privacy, style and location. Not forgetting a discrete and tireless servicing team whether at the front of house or behind the scenes. A mere 30 minutes from the city centre, Le Méridien Putrajaya is set between a gorgeously landscaped golf course and the very convenient IOI City Mall. For guests arriving from overseas, it’s a half-hour drive from KLIA.
But the real draw are the little things that make an event at Le Méridien unforgettable. Friendly smiles, great food, wait staff who’re all too willing to lug luggage or transfer furniture as quickly as you can summon them.
Naturally, response speed can make or break any big occasion. Thankfully, going above and beyond seems to be in the Le Méridien DNA, and service is wonderfully personalised, with a high level of guest acknowledgement. This way, you can actually sit back and enjoy proceedings without worrying too much.
Dinner guests will be greeted at the airy double-storey lobby, by floor-to-ceiling batik-style stained windows. Colourful oversized lamps light up the space and put visitors in a bright, happy, mood. After pre-dinner cocktails, they can saunter into the grand ballroom that’s nearly 27,000sqft in size. Or go al-fresco by the poolside.
With Putrajaya’s lack of an offending skyline, there’s an expansive view of the dusk sky as wedding guests settle down to the banquet. A third option would be halal Chinese cuisine from the ultra-grand Le Mei restaurant. Offering a contemporary take on age-old traditions, this restaurant is helmed by culinary specialists and serves a delectable selection of signature dishes as well.
After all the ‘yam-seng’ and toasting you can afford, retire to spacious rooms with luxurious goose down duvets and duck feather pillows. The Atelier Suite offers a place to recharge on the hotel chain’s famous beds, plus an expansive view of the surrounding scenery. And if you want to splurge, nothing beats the Presidential Suite for that all-important first night together as a married couple.
