1. Qualia, Hamilton Island
The word Qualia means ‘a collection of deeper sensory experiences’ and what could be more apt to describe the mesmerising calm of gazing out across the Great Barrier Reef from this ultra-luxury resort. While crystal aqua waters sparkle, a private helicopter ride across the tropical ocean is an experience not to be forgotten, while sunset cocktails on the beach would be the perfect romantic moment to propose.
2. Santorini, Greece
Sunsets and proposals have a long history of happiness together, and what could be more spectacular than watching a sunset splash across the white-washed Cycladic houses of Santorini. After a day exploring and perhaps taking in the hilltop sights of Oia, indulge in some of the island’s famous seafood and local wine. Volcanic cliffs rolling down into the shimmering ocean are a breathtaking sight, made all the more memorable with a romantic proposal.
3. Central Park, New York
Not everyone likes the extravagance of fine dining, and a trip to New York can provide the perfect opportunity for an unsuspecting proposal. With so much to see around the city you can keep your partner distracted by planning an action packed day visiting iconic sites, heading to museums and exploring Broadway. No trip to New York is complete without a romantic stroll around Central Park and as you walk hand in hand, past the Bow Bridge, The Carousel, or through the Shakespeare Garden, seize that perfect romantic moment and drop down on one knee.
4. Cappadocia, Turkey
For adventure and travel lovers, the uniquely moonscaped region of Cappadocia provides a spectacular and historically rich backdrop for romance. To get the adrenaline rolling, take a hot air balloon ride over the ancient ruins and be ready to pop the question as you float through the sky in awe at the magnificent mountainous scenery. Now that’s a memorable story.
5. Ashford Castle, Ireland
With the runaway success of historical dramas like Downtown Abbey there’s been a revival of interest in grand castles and traditions of the past. What could be more romantic than declaring your lasting love in a 13th Century castle that’s weathered plenty of storms and continues to be strong and magnificent. Metaphorical or simply visual, Ashford castle is a romantic dream. Nestled amongst rolling green hills and decorated with all the romantic grandeur of the past, a proposal here is a romantic fantasy never to be forgotten.
6. Victoria Falls, Zambia
Waterfalls and rainbows both scream romance, so why not pack your bags and head off on an adventure to Zambia where you can get both at once. Boasting the largest sheet of falling water in the world, the waterfall has multiple gorges and hidden secrets to explore, and rainbows materialise in the mist. A day trip walking around the falls is an electrifying experience and a refreshing swim in the ‘Armchair’ pool at the top is highly recommended for romantic moments.
7. Paris, France
No self-respecting list of the most romantic places to propose would leave off Paris, City of Love. Exuding old-world charm and featuring the iconic Eiffel Tower as a backdrop, there are so many romantic places to propose in this beautiful city. An evening stroll along the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe following a visit to the Louvre to soak up some culture would be a perfect plan. For bonus romantic points, follow through with an elegant dinner at Le Train Bleu in Gare de Lyon where you can propose surrounded by spectacular European art and chandeliers from the early 1900s.
