Popping the question this Valentine’s Day? Then be inspired by our top ten romantic destinations to get down on one knee…
1. Magical Morocco
Just a few hours flight from the UK and you can be in the colourful country of Morocco where a stay at the luxurious Kasbah Tamadot will wow your other half. Owned and run by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition, the resort oozes romance at every turn. The Berber Tents are particularly special for couples.
2. Romance in Venice
Venice has been the first choice for star-crossed lovers for centuries, with its picturesque waterways, winding streets and sumptuous dining. Wend your way to the city onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for an experience neither of you will ever forget; boasting serious old school glamour.
3. The city of love
Few places in the world have the association with love and romance as the French capital, Paris. Though some may think a proposal here is cliché…others will revel in the timeless tale of having said ‘yes’ at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Stay at the Mandarin Oriental Paris for added luxury, first-class service and the perfect Parisian location.
4. Ring shopping at Tiffany’s
Take your love on a walk around Central Park, enjoy dinner at the legendary Rainbow Room and then head to the top of the Rockerfella to pop the question. Stay at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel for a superb New York stay, and take the short 20 minute stroll to Tiffany’s & Co to choose your engagement ring.
5. A walk on the beach
Who could say no to being whisked off to Jamaica for a romantic proposal?! If you’re thinking of asking your partner to marry you, then we suggest a stay at Round Hill Hotel; where the oceanfront rooms have been designed by Ralph Lauren and the beachside dining offers dishes to tantalize even the most discerning of palates.
6. Chocoholics favourite
As island romance goes, Saint Lucia is famous for being one of the most loved-up in the world! If your sweetheart has a sweet tooth, then take a look at Boucan; a hotel in the island’s oldest plantation, Rabot Estate, and the cocoa behind Hotel Chocolat. The restaurant here boasts stunning views and delicious fine fare.
7. On top of the world
Iconic, dramatic and super luxurious, Dubai’s Burj Al Arab is the place to see and be seen. For spectacular views and delicious cocktails, head to the Skyview Bar for a proposal both of you will never forget, preceded by dinner at Al Mahara with its floor-to-ceiling aquarium and exquisite seafood menu.
8. Proposal in paradise
Renowned the world over for its ultimate luxury indulgence, Per AQUUM’s Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives is a first-class spot to ask that all important question. For serious romance, ask our Concierge to arrange a private Champagne picnic on a secluded sand bank for you and your loved one.
9. Italian amore
Everything about Rome creates a feeling of love…the delicious food, fine wines, candlelight and history of romantic movies filmed on its beautiful streets. If you’re thinking of popping the question in front of Trevi Fountain, stay at the Hotel de Russie with its gorgeous al fresco restaurant and elegant suites.
10. Get hitched!
If you just can’t wait to say ‘I do’, then how about popping the question in Las Vegas followed by an elopement-style wedding in the famous city?! We suggest a stay at the fabulous Bellagio where you can enjoy luxurious first class service right on the strip. Don’t forget to take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon during your stay…it’s a romantic ‘must’!
