Perfect proposal ideas. Koh Samui is perfect for a romantic proposal. Read on for 8 ideas to help you with orchestrating the perfect one.
This island in the Gulf of Thailand is tropical, luxurious, secluded, surrounded by azure water and dusted with white sand. If you’re looking for engagement help and proposal ideas, look no further.
#1 At a romantic ocean-view bar
Wondering whether to pop the question before or after dinner? Don’t. Koh Samui is one of the most beautiful places to watch the sun set. Have a shot of tequila to calm the nerves, order a bottle of champagne or arrange for a signature cocktail to be made just for the proposal and then get down on one knee with the backdrop of the most amazing and breathtaking sunsets.
#2 At a private dinner
Pop the question at a private dinner in your pool villa garden or on the balcony of your deluxe suite. Keep it casual yet special. Keep it private and intimate. Let the chef and the team set up while you whisk your soon-to-be fiancé to the spa for a couples massage. If nerves are getting the better of you, ask the for the ring to be placed on the table, so when you get back you can slide right into the proposal and then enjoy your romantic dinner. Start planning here.
Want something a little less private, but still romantic? Organise a dinner on the beach or on the pier. Toes in the sand, or floating above the ocean, both are supreme locations that will suit any proposal dreams you have.
#4 Forget candle-light, and try fire-light
Make a late-night proposal illuminated by the flames of the fire pit over a night cap. Have a relaxed dinner. Stroll over to the circular lounge, recline, relax, get comfortable, and rest assured that any ring will look stunning and dramatic by fire-light.
Take your proposal to the next level: Create an underwater proposal. A popular day trip in Koh Samui is hiring a boat to take you around the marine national park to explore some of the Jurassic-like scenery. This idea could work with snorkelling or scuba diving. All you need is a waterproof sign: Will you marry me? and an underwater camera to capture it all and you’re set to make one of the most memorable proposals with the best FB and Instagram posts to match.
#6 By drone
Perhaps snorkelling is not your thing. The chartered boat could still be a good idea, though. Instead of the underwater proposal, how about a proposal during a romantic beach picnic? Sounds dull? We’ve got an idea: Get a drone, write Will You Marry Me? in the sand around the cove from you, the drone takes off, time for some arial photography of you both, your sand message appears on the screen and then you reveal the ring.
#7 A poolside proposal
Keep it low-key and surprising. Propose on the edge of an infinity pool with the sparking Gulf of Thailand as your backdrop. Organise for a bottle of champagne to be brought chilled to your lounge chairs for celebrating after one of your most memorable swims.
#8 On the pier as the sun sets
Suggest an early evening stroll. Bring a bottle of champagne as a refreshment and walk to the end of the pier and as the spectacular sun is setting get down on one knee and propose. It’s simple, classic, but oozes with romance.
Try Koh Samui as the backdrop for a guaranteed “yes”.
