Are you looking to get engaged in Seychelles? Great choice. Popping the question on a romantic trip to luxury Seychelles will work fantastically – you’ve just got to choose the right moment and plan ahead. 

Whether you get down on one knee at an idyllic picnic atop a mountain or during a special meal at the resort’s best restaurant, rest assured there are plenty of opportunities to pop the question in the most romantic way possible. Best of all, the scenic natural beauty of Seychelles’ private islands makes this destination the perfect setting for your special moment – what a place to start your new beginnings as a soon-to-be-married couple! 

Getting engaged is an important milestone, so make it count. We say book a stay at one of the finest resorts and plan a one-of-a-kind proposal your partner can’t help but say yes to.

We have a few ideas to get the ball rolling…

While exploring your own paradise island at the North Island, Seychelles

There’s simply no other resort like North Island, Seychelles. With just 10 villas in the whole resort, it is great for a private proposal. 

You can choose any spot on the isle and be guaranteed no crowds of onlookers. A perfect time to pop the question is on a hike around the island – there are so many breath-taking viewpoints to act as the picture-perfect backdrop, too. Your ‘we’re engaged selfie’ will certainly be one for the books. 

The Villa North Island is one of the resort’s residences and is perfectly built for couples – so if you want to propose in the comfort of your villa, this is the one you want. Speak to the concierge desk and they can arrange a three-course in-villa dinner to be sent straight to your accommodation.

Over a candlelit dinner at LXR Mango House

Planning to get engaged in Seychelles over a romantic dinner? One of the top resorts for stylish and chic restaurants is LXR Mango House. It’s your best bet if you dream of getting down on one knee at the dinner table.

There are a few suitable restaurants here, but we think Azido makes the most romantic place for a proposal. With its elevated beachfront setting overlooking the horizon of the Indian Ocean, it’ll be hard to find a more picturesque spot. Hide the ring in your pocket and find the right time during your meal to do it – whether it be at the start because you can’t hide your nerves or at the very end during your shared dessert. It’s down to you. 

Whenever or however you plan to do it, rest assured the restaurant staff will be waiting to congratulate you and bring a bottle of champagne over to the table for you to celebrate with.

On the beach at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Desroches Island

If your partner is happiest at the beach, what better place to propose than on soft sands with the ocean waves lapping at your feet?

The good news is that Seychelles has countless beach spots to choose from, especially if you stay at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Desroches Island. With over 14km of private golden sands, this is a resort simply made for beach-dwelling and sun-lounging. 

Why not choose a gorgeous day and hire a private cabana to relax on together? Or if you’re feeling a little edgy waiting for the right moment, we say order a strong cocktail for some Dutch courage and simply bite the bullet. The longer you wait, the more you’ll work yourself up about it.

Whilst diving at Constance Ephelia Resort

Are you a couple of thrill-seekers? If so, one of the best places to get engaged in Seychelles is underwater during a once-in-a-lifetime diving experience. For this, Constance Ephelia Resort has everything you need to pull it off.

As you’re swimming through the crystal-clear waters, you’ll come face to face with all sorts of exciting marine life, like eels, catfish, and lobster – what a unique setting for one of the biggest moments of your life. Before the big day, head to the Dive School to book your slot and let the instructors know your plans beforehand.
