Top 7 places to propose this Valentine’s Day

Here’s our pick of 7 romantic spots in the Indian Ocean for a last minute romantic getaway and proposal this Valentine’s Day.

Panoramic views of the Seychelles

Panoramic views of the Seychelles

1. A deserted island in the Maldives

Imagine a day on an island inhabited by just the two of you. Swim, sunbathe, snorkel, enjoy a picnic on the beach and when the moment’s right, ask your partner to marry you. Perfection. Day trips to your own deserted island are available from Constance Halaveli and Constance Moofushi.

2. A panoramic view in the Seychelles

Drive through the lush dense forest of Mahé’s interior to reach the colonial spice plantation, Le Jardin du Roi Spice Garden with knock-your-socks-off panoramic views across the island and out to the ocean beyond. Have lunch in the restaurant and then meander down to the stunning Anse Royal below.

3. A high-octane, adrenalin-pumping proposal in Mauritius

If ziplining and quad biking is more your thing then why not stage your proposal at the Casela Nature and Leisure Park in Mauritius. With the longest zipline circuit in the Indian Ocean you could pop the question while flying through the air above stunning Mauritian jungle. Other activities include mountain biking, jeep safaris to see a range of animals including lions and monkeys, Segway and quad biking.

4. Barefoot and laidback on a private Madagascan island

Indulge in a slice of romantic perfection amidst the laidback charm of Constance Tsarabanjina with a hammock slung outside your beach villa just steps from the shoreline. When the time comes to pop the question staff can arrange a secluded table for two on the rocks above the beach where you can enjoy fresh lobster under a blanket of stars.

5. A floating restaurant on a beautiful Mauritian lagoon

Wind your way through mangrove trees, down a torch-lit gangplank and you’ll discover one of the world’s most romantic restaurants. Le Barachois at Constance Le Prince Maurice is situated across five decks floating on the picturesque lagoon. Watch the sun set over the still waters as stars fill the sky then open the champagne and tuck into some world-class cuisine.

6. On one of the world’s most beautiful beaches

Take a walk around the shore from the Seychelles resort Constance Lémuria and you’ll reach Anse Lazio, frequently voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Sheltered by granite boulders with talc-soft sand and shallow waters, Anse Lazio epitomises the image of Seychelles’ beaches that we dream of. Closer to Lémuria along the same shore is Anse Georgette, just as beautiful but less well known and more secluded.

7. Romance of the Coco de Mer in the Seychelles

The Coco de Mer has long been said to have aphrodisiac properties and although you can’t buy or take one of the suggestively shaped nuts off the island you can visit one of the only places on earth that they grow at the Vallée de Mai on Praslin. Walk in the stunning ancient forest and see these beautiful palm nuts growing in the wild.
