1. Hot air balloon over Kenya's Maasai Mara
Soar gently above rhinos, elephants and giraffes in Maasai Mara during a hot-air balloon flight, skimming over the tree tops as the sun rises in a pink and orange blaze. Before descending, propose among the clouds, and celebrate with a champagne breakfast waiting for you on terra firma.
Kuoni recommends the Mara Bushtops hotel.
2. A Maldivan Undersea Restaurant
Book a table at the intimate and unique Ithaa Undersea Restaurant and propose surrounded by an enchanting underwater world of psychedelic fish. Located five metres below the water’s surface, getting engaged at the exclusive Ithaa – the world’s only undersea restaurant – will be unforgettable.
Kuoni recommends the Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island.
3. Helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon
Take a limo ride to a VIP heli-pad and soar into the sky during a memorable helicopter flight over Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam, before landing in the Grand Canyon. Propose in this awe-inspiring stunning setting, and celebrate with champagne and a gourmet platter.
Kuoni recommends the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.
4. Candlelit spa in Zanzibar
Relax in The Sultan’s Bath , a private spa bath for couples complete with music and scented spice candles. Then dine in a private beachfront gazebo under the stars, served by a private butler. Proposing at the Breezes Beach Club & Spa, Zanzibar is the ultimate romantic setting.

5. Gondola through romantic Venice
Venice is the city of lovers and romantics, and could be the perfect setting to show your commitment with an engagement ring. Start the evening with a candlelit dinner in Terrazza Danieli, with unforgettable vistas from this roof-top restaurant, before taking a gondola ride along the canals and proposing.
