There are a few memories in life that you may never want to forget. One of these is the moment you pop the question, or say "yes" to the love of your life. Whether you are with that special someone already or still waiting to meet "The One," you can still dream up some spectacular destinations that would make for the perfect proposal backdrop. Try dropping hints by sending the occasional email to your significant other about some romantic locales across the globe. Before you know it, you might be planning a vacation in a luxury rental in Hawaii, the Caribbean or Europe - will you get the big proposal? You'll have to wait and see.
Here are some spots that will surely send the romantic sparks flying:
There are countless places in Hawaii that will make popping the question feel like a fairytale, but one of the coolest is Mauna Kea. The snow-covered dormant volcano stands at a towering 13,796 feet, and is one of the most unique spots that you could profess your love from. Some people have even coordinated with their villa specialist to have a dinner table ready at the summit. The classiest way to arrive at your proposal spot is by helicopter, and if you want to truly wow your loved one, have a bowl of chocolate-covered strawberries waiting. Before you know it, you'll be engaged to be married thousands of feet above the sea.
Luxury villas in Thailand abound, and it's no surprise when you take a look at the beaches that dot the coastline. The pristine, crystal-clear water and fine white sand are offset by towering, tree-covered cliffs, and one of the best spots to witness this beauty is Maya Beach in Phi Phi Leh. This star locale was chosen for the film "The Beach," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, for its stunning natural setting. It doesn't take much to make this place perfect for popping the question. Just make sure you're both clad in bathing suits, so once you hear that one fateful word, you can both run straight for the temperate waters and celebrate with a satisfying swim.
Caribbean locales are another no-brainer for ideal spots to propose. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pitons could be your number-one pick for a proposal on St. Lucia island, nearly 3,000 feet above sea level. If you're unsure of the best spot to settle among this natural wonder, you can talk to your villa concierge and map out a perfect plan for your history-making proposal. Some people want to remember this memory for decades to come, and if that's the case, you can consider hiring someone to film the event as it's happening - you'll be grateful later.
