We hope this has inspired you to make your proposal truly unforgettable!

Mount Fuji - Cherry Blossom Lake

Anybody searching for an exciting and unique destination to propose abroad will certainly find it in the heart of Hakone, next to Mount Fuji in Japan, which offers visitors an exceptional holiday experience. Be one with nature and stay in luxury hotels unlike any you’ve seen before. Set amongst serene forestry, you’ll feel like the only two people in the world here. Stroll amongst the enchanting cherry blossom trees along Lake Kawaguchi and when you’re alone together, surrounded by the vibrant floral tones and breathing in the sweet blossom fragrance, surprise your loved one with the heartfelt proposal of a lifetime. For a far-eastern adventure that’s bursting at the seams with romance and dream-like natural surroundings, and for the unique proposal you crave, you can do no wrong with a luxury holiday to Japan.

Bora Bora - Tupai Island

What could be more romantic than proposing to the love of your life while on a heart-shaped island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? The Conrad Bora Bora Nui is seemingly just a stone’s throw from the iconic Tupai Island and the staff will arrange for a helicopter to fly you out to this incredible motu, offering incomparable views of Mount Otemanu and the dazzling azure lagoon waters of Bora Bora on the way. Then, when you’re completely alone together on this private islet, surrounded by lush swaying palms and dream-like crystal waters, you’ll know that you’ve picked the perfect proposal location to drop down on one knee and ask them to make your every dream come true.

Serengeti at Sunset

For an adventurous and exhilarating proposal, Tanzania is the destination for you. Wave goodbye to the ground and soar over the unparalleled Serengeti, admiring incomparable views of exotic wildlife and lush savannahs. Drink delicious champagne and clink glasses as you watch the dazzling orange sun sink over the vast horizon. Then admire the countless twinkling stars that shine in the clear African skies. Under that milky way, get down on one knee and ask your loved one to marry you with the glittering night sky as your backdrop. For an exceptional safari experience and the perfect place to propose, we recommend staying at the Serengeti Safari Camp.

Petit St. Vincent Private Island

Whisk your loved one away to this dream luxury Caribbean destination and spend long romantic days alone together on the diamond-white secluded beaches. The staff on this private island resort are there exclusively to make your every wish come true, so whether you want to propose in the lavish comfort of your beach-front villa with a private romantic dinner, or be transported to an awe-inspiring sandbank island and get down on one knee surrounded by candles with the Caribbean sunset as your backdrop, the Petit St. Vincent can accommodate. Anyone looking for the most unique way to propose will certainly find it here.

Under the Northern Lights

While most people don’t consider a trip to the icy climates of Finland much of a holiday, there are few spots more romantic than this for the perfect proposal. Who wants to kiss under the light of a thousand stars when you could kiss under the opulent glow of the sensational northern lights instead? Unwind together in the luxury of your very own exclusive glass igloo and watch nature’s most dazzling show unfurl right above you for a truly one of a kind proposal. At the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, the night sky will light up around you, a perfect reflection of how your world lights up when you’re together. Proposals don’t get much more special than this.

Maldivian Sand Bank

Picture it: you, the one you love, and no one else, on a tiny candle-lit sandbank in the Indian Ocean, watching the sun transform the sky from a beautiful clear blue to a decadent orange and pink. If this sounds like the perfect proposal moment to you, a luxury Maldives holiday is a must. Home to an abundance of stunning atolls and luxury hotels that are only too happy to arrange a unique destination dining experience, the Maldives is proposal and honeymoon gold. For the crème de la crème of romance, we recommend staying at the One & Only Reethi Rah. Simply ask and they will help you to create a sublime dining experience in beautiful surroundings, perfect for when the moment comes to get down on one knee.

The Royal Pita Maha

At The Royal Pita Maha, you’ll feel on top the world before they’ve even said yes. Boasting mesmerising waterfalls and set amongst flourishing gardens and forestry, this is the perfect proposal location for anybody looking for something less conventional. Jet off to the emerald-hued mountains of Bali and you’ll be rewarded with lush natural views, romantic rose-petal covered beds, and the perfect backdrop for an incomparable proposal. Say the word and you’ll be indulged with a private candle-lit sunset dinner overlooking the verdant mountains, or in front of an awe-inspiring waterfall to set the mood. Then, when the moment is right, ask them to be yours forever in this beautifully intimate setting.

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Granted, when people dream of the perfect place to propose, not many conjure images of a middle eastern getaway anywhere other than Dubai. However, The Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar in Oman is a luxury holiday destination far more unique that offers mesmerising lavish comfort accentuated by flawless uninterrupted mountain views, making it the perfect spot for a special proposal. Plan your dream bespoke dining experience, take your loved one to the top of the world and dine on exquisite cuisine atop a picture-perfect mountain as the sun sinks down behind the peaks. Then, for the perfect romantic proposal, drop down on one knee in the twinkling light of the candles.

The Living Heritage Kosanda

Renowned as the up-and-coming holiday destination worldwide, Sri Lanka may surprise visitors with its lavish romantic settings. Opt for a stay at the Living Heritage Koslanda, Sri Lanka’s boutique luxury hotel, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with unique proposal locations. Arrange a tailor-made destination dining experience in the lush gardens or take a stroll through the verdant forestry to the beautiful hidden waterfall, where you can arrange to have champagne waiting for you for when she says yes. Sri Lanka is also one of few locations where you have the opportunity to custom make the perfect engagement ring. Take a trip to the gem factories of Kandy and the staff will accommodate your every desire. Sri Lanka may often be overlooked, but it is definitely one of the best places in the world to propose.

Haleakala Mountain, Hawaii

For a proposal unlike any other, Hawaii is a gold-mine of romance and inspiration. Our favourite spot, however, is the Haleakala Mountain. For an extra special proposal, hop out of bed in the early hours and chase the dawn with your loved one. Drive the picturesque winding roads up this incredible mountain and you’ll find yourself rewarded with the most sublime sunrise views imaginable. Stand on top of the world, amongst the most picture-perfect candy-floss clouds, as the radiant sunlight spreads across the gorgeous Hawaiian sky, then drop down and pop the question bathed in the golden light of the rising sun. A trip here will guarantee that your proposal is like something out of your wildest dreams, and we recommend staying at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.
