Plan the proposal of a lifetime in these luxurious spots
We all love a fabulous luxury vacation, but sometimes, trips have to be beyond perfect. Every detail must be carefully executed, from room service and wine tours to dining experiences and walks through the most romantic parts of the city. When you’re gearing up to propose to that special someone, all you want is an experience without any flaws, so that you and your potential bride- or groom-to-be can look back fondly forever.
It takes some time and planning to make it unforgettable. Here are some tips to plan the perfect marriage proposal:
Pick the right place
Hopeless romantics know that choosing the location for a proposal is one of the biggest decisions you have to make. Standing atop a bridge in Paris, getting on one knee atÂ the top floor of Toronto’s CN Tower or embracing your love on the cliffs of Hawaii’s Waipi’o Valley can make your moment skyrocket from great to spectacular, so don’t underestimate the power of a colossal proposal. Looking for a place to stay in this Hawaiian oasis? Try the Waipio Wayside Inn, the perfectly quaint bed and breakfast that was first built in 1932, and featuresÂ dozens of pieces of antique wooden furniture, windows with gorgeous garden and ocean views, and a massive library room with more than 400 books to browse.
If you’re looking for celebrity inspiration, you can take a tip from Old Hollywood couple Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn and spend a romantic weekend at Hacienda del Sol in Tucson, Arizona. The former all-girls school boasts spectacular villas like the famous duo’s favorite Casita Grande, which is one of 30 spots to stay on 34 acres of botanical gardens and gorgeous desert landscape.
Pamper your sweet with treats
If you’re vacationing in hot spots like Paris or San Francisco, you’ll find yourself in the presence of some of the best chocolatiers in the world. To make your proposal even more personal, you can have some of these decadent sweets waiting to be eaten once you’ve popped the big question. Jacques Genin, the famous French pastry chef, not only sells to the top restaurants in France’s capital but has run his own chocolaterie since 2008, infusing bonbons with the essence of in season fruit and offering both classic and salted butter caramels that will actually melt in your mouth. To make the experience extra special, consider taking your loved one to the shop so she can try her favorites.
Top it off with room service
So your one true love has proclaimed a great big “Yes” and now you both just want to celebrate the moment in your luxurious hotel. The best way to do so is to sleep in as long as possible and order copious amounts of room service – especially if you’re at one of these hotels.
Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona, provides you not only with your own private patio for grilling, but when you order room service, you’ll be given filet mignon, Colorado lamb chops and other delicious barbecue items that will taste delicious, cooked exactly the way you want them.
