There's something magical about saying 'I do' against the backdrop of the sparkling sea with the setting sun as witness and tall, graceful trees as the audience. However walking on sand may not be too pleasant if you are all dressed up, particularly for ladies on heels. With its rolling lawn which fringes the sandy beach and sea beyond as the venue for wedding ceremony and reception, The Garden at Lone Pine Hotel is your perfect area.
Outdoor solemnization or al fresco ROM/ wedding parties, Lone Pine’s famous beachfronting stretch of lawn can seat up to 350 people (35 round tables of 10 each) where casuarina branches sway overhead and the ceiling is sky-high.
Their service and the wedding food received mixed reviews. Bad weather is every outdoor wedding's nightmare hence the setup of marquee tent for protection (priced 3 times higher than market price?) and proper planning with the hotel's wedding personnel are very crucial.
Lone Pine is the first beach hotel on Batu Ferringhi Beach and it dates back to the 1940's. The colonial-influenced design of this white architecture creates a charming backdrop for photography. Amid Casuarina trees in the garden, white sandy beach and the scenic blue sea, couples who love the outdoor will find this place very attractive.

we planned our pre wedding shooting in lone pine and it was a fantastic view of ocean & pine trees. quick check in and check out process and the staffs were friendly and helpful. variety of breakfast at the bungalow was great. cleanliness and environment was superb. overall we are satisfied with the services and stay.
The award-winning 5-star Lone Pine Hotel is infused with colonial spirit & idyllic charm. This lavish Batu Ferringhi property is the only first-class boutique hotel in the area & is one of Penang’s legendary hotels. Amid Casuarina trees along the beautiful garden, nature lovers will enjoy the flora, & luxuriant landscape of trees. The grand dame is also recognised for their outstanding garden weddings; with the Casuarina trees sheltering its luscious garden along the beach, it certainly attracts many couples to celebrate & share their unique event.
Garden wedding is a dream for every bride, now it has been left as a horror memory to me for the rest of my life.
My wedding was the third wedding after Lone pine reopen last year. The wedding team is lead by Josephine. Everything is about money with Lone pine. The marquee tent is charged 3 times higher than the market price, the food is very lousy, and it cost me about 120++ per pax for the buffet selection.
i was disappointed because the team didnt help me to solve my problem when the disaster - RAIN - happened. i have to march in with mud water seeping through my silk heel; guests were sitting near to muddy field and pool of water due to the heavy rain. There was no contigency plan and advise provided from the wedding team. I remembered i was panicking when i see the rain drop became heavier..and Josephine (even she is the leader, no uniform wearing) was not helping to solve my problem.
Had our wedding reception here, it was beautiful!! The garden was beautiful, the service was excellent but most of all the people there were incredible.
Our room was beautiful, it had everything fit for the "king of the day". The view from our balcony and seeing the garden being transformed by our wedding planner with the help of lone pine staff to the vision we had was an incredible experience. The food was excellent, they even catered a special request for me personally, a filet mignon. :P
A personal shout out to my man Jusry, even though he had little to do with the wedding, except for the electrical bit, he was more than happy to answer all my questions. My bride, was thrilled, my parents were blown away. It was worth the 17,000 KM flight from new york.
We both don't even know where to start, but we felt our reception dinner at the lone pine resort couldn't had been any more perfect.
Quiet, cosy, quaint, elegant and charming. Unique Quality: This is the first beach hotel on Batu Ferringhi Beach and dates back to the 1940's. THis hotel has been given a new lease of life and turned into a funky boutique hotel.
The hotel's main food and beverage outlet is "The Bungalow" which is really a real beachfront mansion converted into a restaurant, and surrounded by the hotel's swimming pool.
The hotel is situated in a quieter part of Ferringhi beach, and shaded by tall beach fron Pine trees, hence its name. The beach front lawn is a popular location for parties and weddings.
