  • Dear Malaysia PR executive and/or luxury hotelier,

    My wife and I are travelling around the world on a 500-day honeymoon. In each region we pick one luxury boutique hotel to partner with exclusively for said region. We post two articles per resort on as well as numerous social media posts across Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, YouTube, etc..and most importantly each partner becomes the exclusive resort in their respective region on - If anyone in this group represents a luxury hotelier/resort in Malaysia, we would love to talk more. Please drop us a line ( and we can answer any questions and forward over our formal proposal for your review.
