Propose Abroad for the Perfect Valentine’s Day Memory

Aside from the wedding day itself, the day of engagement is one of the most romantic and intimate moments of a person’s life. Getting engaged is a sign that you want to spend the rest of your life with the person you love, and nothing could be more incredible than that. Many men struggle to come up with the perfect proposal that mixes luxury and romance. Of all the days in the year to propose, there can be no doubt that Valentine’s Day is perhaps the most ideal. However, cold and rainy weather in the UK is far from romantic. Consider proposing on Valentine’s Day from an exotic location like Dubai, Mauritius or Thailand. Don’t think that you have to limit yourself to a proposal over dinner, however. By staying at some of the most incredible locations around the world, you will have the opportunity to propose in unique and memorable ways. Here are the three perfect ways and places to propose this Valentine’s Day.

Atop the Burj Khalifa in Dubai

A winter sun holiday in Dubai in February can be the perfect opportunity to propose to your special someone. Located in the United Arab Emirates, the city of Dubai is the epitome of luxury. Thanks to warm temperatures in the winter, a holiday here can include dining al fresco, lounging by the pool and swimming in the sea. However, one of the most breathtaking ways to propose is from the world’s tallest tower. The Burj Khalifa is the star of the Dubai skyline, and its observation deck is the perfect place to pop the question. Start at the Dubai Mall, at the base of the building, and then take a private tour that includes an incredible elevator ride to the observation platform. After she has said yes, retreat to your luxury room in the Ritz-Carlton Dubai. Enjoy luxury on the hotel’s beachfront property, while dining in the upscale restaurants or while relaxing in the many pools onsite.

Underwater in Mauritius
The island of Mauritius, located in the Indian Ocean, is known as a place for tranquility and relaxation. This isn’t the place to take a holiday if you want lots of attractions and shopping opportunities. However, Mauritius is an ideal holiday destination for those who want to propose in an incredible way. Scuba diving is a popular pastime on the island, and there is no better way to surprise your loved one that to present her with a ring while underwater. While staying at the hotel Le Touessrok, you can book a private scuba diving tour. You will get the chance to see plenty of tropical fish, wrecked ships and beautiful coral formations, or you could even do a night dive for an extra element of surprise and mystery.

While Riding an Elephant in Phuket
In order to make your proposal truly memorable, you will need to think of a unique way to present the ring. If you choose to enjoy a Valentine’s Day holiday at the Banyan Tree Phuket in Thailand, you can create an engagement memory that will never be forgotten. Concierge at this lavish resort can help you arrange a private tour to ride elephants in the surrounding jungles. After your incredible proposal, hop on a river raft to watch the sunset with a glass of champagne. Back at the hotel, you can enjoy activities like golf, swimming or enjoying a massage in the sheltered treatment rooms right by the water.

Combining a winter getaway with a Valentine’s Day proposal is the perfect way to celebrate your love and enjoy the warm weather of an exotic location.
