With Valentine’s Day on our minds this week, we thought we’d put together our top five destinations for a romantic proposal on February 14th…
As you fall for each other you’ll also fall for the charms of this intoxicating Caribbean island with its stunning, contrasting scenery of lush rainforest and pristine beaches – all against the iconic backdrop of the twin volcanic peaks, the Pitons.
At Sugar Beach romance abounds – try sipping Champagne on the pier whilst watching a dramatic sunset. Or how about saying ‘yes’ whilst looking out over the island from your own private infinity pool at Jade Mountain?
A Barbados holiday is the ultimate in luxury whether you’re proposing or just looking for a destination to celebrate an anniversary or reignite a little romance into your relationship. Luxurious resorts abound, with the world-renowned Sandy Lane the ideal place for a candlelit dinner; the romantic L'Acajou is an exceptional experience. Over at Cobblers Cove the attentive staff will put together a Champagne picnic for you on the beach – with all your favourite foods.
Nowhere says ‘will you marry me’ like the City of Love – Paris. The French capital spells romance at every fashionable corner, and you’ll remember a trip there for the rest of your days. If a proposal on top of the Eiffel Tower is how you want to start your marriage to ‘the one’, a stay at the Mandarin Oriental will go a long way to enhancing the romance. For a truly unique experience speak to your Travel Specialist about booking the Penthouse Floor: J’aime Paris, with views of the city’s most famous landmarks.
At Dubai’s Burj Al Arab you’ll find the perfect place to pop the question at signature restaurant Al Mahara; where you can dine on exquisite seafood whilst watching life under the sea in the floor-to-ceiling aquarium. Then head up to the Al Muntaha bar for spectacular views and to pop a cork or two to married life.
The exotic Seychelles archipelago is where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their honeymoon, so it’s fair to say it’s an exclusive spot for some holiday romance. For ultimate ‘you time’ head to Denis Private Island where the owner’s motto is “the island is yours – do as you will, without disturbing others” – the island has even ‘banned’ phones and computers so you’ll truly be able to ‘get away from it all’. If a proposal under the stars sounds like the perfect way to say ‘I will’ then speak to your Travel Specialist about the stargazing at Fregate Island. Heaven!
