Unique Places to Propose
Pop the Question in a Unique Place
Valentine's Day is the one day of the year solely dedicated to showing that special someone just how much they mean to you and maybe this year, you've decided to pop the ultimate question - 'will you marry me?' So, you’ve bought the ring, you’ve practised proposing in the mirror, now all you have to do is decide where. To make it almost impossible to say no, Booking.com, the world leader in connecting travellers with a diverse range of amazing places to stay, has scoured destinations across the global to suggest a list of seriously romantic places with a unique twist so you can really make the proposal an occasion to remember.
Juliet’s Balcony, Italy
Romeo and Juliet are one of the most iconic couples in literary history. They may not have had the happily-ever-after they were hoping for but that doesn’t mean you can’t – head to Juliet’s balcony and ask ‘where for art thou, Romeo?’ before asking the even bigger question. The Lady Capulet apartments are only a 5-minute stroll from Juliet’s house and offer luxury accommodation in the heart of this romantic city.
A Private Island, Belize
If luxury and privacy is what you’re after, why not travel to a private island? The Royal Belize is an island located in the Caribbean accessible only by a bridge over a natural channel. There are only five villas on the island, each of which has its own private plunge pool and an iPad so that you can communicate with your own personal concierge. To make the occasion as romantic as possible, enjoy a private lantern-lit dinner on the beach, under the stars before popping the question. Better yet, you can host your wedding at The Royal Belize, so if you enjoyed the proposal, why not see what they can do with your wedding?
Sky Garden, London
For a panoramic, breath-taking view of London, head to the Sky Garden. Book tickets to ascend at sunset so that, with the gardens behind you and the gorgeous sunset sky in front of you, you’ll have one of the most romantic settings possible for your proposal. Afterwards, head to your own private apartment just a stone’s throw away. Go Native apartments feature beautiful, modern design with all the amenities and privacy of your own home.
National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth
The National Marine Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the UK and has awe-inspiring marine animals from near and far. Make this a proposal your loved one can’t say no to by pre-arranging priority access to the aquarium – they’ll even throw in a bottle of bubbles to kick start your celebrations! After getting the all-important ‘yes’, head to The Imperial – a quaint guesthouse offering central accommodation. Think cosy bedrooms and cooked breakfasts for you and your fiancée.
Is she the Cinderella to your Prince Charming? Is he the Prince Eric to your Ariel? Whatever your favourite Disney fairy tale may be, if you want to make this a truly magical experience, why not head to Disneyland Paris and get down on one knee in front of Cinderella’s Castle? Then you can sweep your fiancée off their feet with a stay at Apartments du Marais – elegantly designed and perfect for your soon-to-be King or Queen.
