Plan to pop the question on holiday next year? An unforgettable proposal takes time and careful planning to get right, so now’s your chance to get thinking. We’ve picked out five of the best places to propose around the world, from the white sands of Zanzibar to a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon.

Drift above the Maasai Mara in a hot air balloon

Gaze down at rhinos, elephants and giraffes roaming beneath you, as you float above Kenya’s sweeping Maasai Mara plains in a hot-air balloon. Skim over the tree tops as the sun rises in a pink and orange blaze and propose among the clouds, before celebrating with a Champagne breakfast when you land. One of our favourite places to stay here is the ultra-luxe Mara Bushtops.

Dine under the sea in the Maldives

Book a table at the unique Ithaa Undersea Restaurant. You’ll find this exclusive dining spot at the five-star Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, lying five metres below the water’s surface. It’s the world's first all-glass undersea restaurant and a one-of-a-kind place to propose, surrounded by a spellbinding underwater world of psychedelic fish.

Fly over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter

Take a limo ride to the airport for a spectacular helicopter flight over Las Vegas and natural wonder, the Grand Canyon. Propose in this awe-inspiring setting, then celebrate with Champagne and a delicious picnic lunch. We recommend staying at the luxurious Bellagio, Las Vegas on the city’s world-famous strip.

Unwind at a candlelit spa in Zanzibar

Let any stresses melt away with a relaxing soak in Breezes Beach Club & Spa’s Sultans Bath, a private spa bath for two with spice-scented candles and music. Feeling refreshed, treat your fiancée-to-be to dinner in your own private beachfront gazebo under the stars, served by a personal butler. An idyllic set up for a proposal on Zanzibar’s white sands.
