3 Hotels Perfect for Popping the Question

They like it. They want to put a ring on it. But uh-uh-oh … they can’t decide how or where to do it! And who can blame them? There are so many different proposal styles, so many versions of what the perfect proposal looks, feels, and sounds like, and what’s good for one goose may be awful for the gander.

For instance, some people dream of their significant other getting down on one knee in a crowded fancy restaurant, while others gasp in horror at the prospect of being made the center of a “scene.” Those might prefer a private, intimate moment somewhere sentimental, which conversely sounds like the worst for the ones who want something as grandiose as the milestone.

But for every romance style, there’s a destination hotel or resort that’s perfect for popping the question. And sometimes, it’s the role of the travel advisor to help put it all together! Contact us today to plan your accommodations for the perfect location to 'pop the question'!

Hotel Xcaret Arte

Romance is surely an art, and this luxurious, culture-driven resort has it down pat. It’s the separate, adults-only (16+) complement to the beloved Hotel Xcaret Mexico and boasts the kinds of secret nooks and grottoes that made their original so unique. They even share some since they’re side-by-side properties!

Any of those are incredible places in which to pop the question, but doing it at Arte gives you even more options, and greater intimacy besides. For a serene and transportive setting, Spa Muluk is always a good idea. The indoor/outdoor white cavern design of the space, built alongside a quiet channel of water, offers tranquility unlike anywhere else. But if you’re going for drama, choose either Rooftop Artistas or Rooftop Piramide, both of which can be make a potential mate even more starry-eyed with a private romantic dinner under the open sky. For $436* a couple, a multi-course set menu and sparkling wine lets you extend your moment into a whole night. Or just order an à la carte treat – the award-winning culinary group at this resort can send up cake pops or chocolate truffles for as little as $5*, or a fruit, cheese, or chocolate plate (starting at $25*), or Moet and strawberries ($194*).

*Pricing and offerings may vary at time of request and time of vacation.

With these and a ring “on hand,” any can be a perfect cap for a date-day that can begin with a textile, painting, pottery, or Latin dance workshop, all of which are included with your stay in addition to admission to all of Grupo Xcaret’s amazing eco-adventure parks.

Casa de la Playa

Also by Grupo Xcaret is this ultra-posh, ultra-private, 63-suite option whose every service is designed to be tailored to your vacation … or in this case, occasion! Known to offer exclusivity that makes guests feel like it really is just the two of you, stays here include special access experiences like semi-private caving tours, and limited-seating dinners in the Gra Tlachco Theater or next to a cenote at Xcaret Park. These are perfect for proposal scenarios; the audience is limited enough to keep the moment personal but big enough to share a round of applause.

However, the staff recommends a few other options: the Sky Bar, with an infinity pool that seemingly drops into the Caribbean Sea and circular cuddler daybeds; the Cava wine cellar surrounded by an exclusive collection gathered by sommelier Sandra Fernandez; or, a classic choice, the gorgeous beach on this oceanfront property. The team can also set up a dinner for the two of you with a menu by their incredibly culinary ensemble, which includes chefs Martha Ortiz, Virgilio Martinez, and the Rivera-Rio brothers. Just don’t forget to seal it with a chocolate kiss!

Couples Sans Souci, Jamaica

Romance is clearly the focus at a resort brand named Couples – everything here is designed for two. With hidden nooks across the property, where you can find yourself completely secluded with nothing but the sounds of the water lapping against the base of the gorgeous cliffs, there’s no shortage of uniquely perfect spots for a quiet, private proposal.

The Mineral Grotto in the spa area of the property is a good one, set away from the resort’s activity, and is a perfect way to conclude a complimentary massage class or add-on couples massage. But the cliffside Oceanfront Gazebo that overlooks a secluded corner of the main beach is another popular and picturesque setting away from any prying eyes. Even better is if you book a private candle-lit meal just steps away to celebrate being newly engaged. You can toast with Couples private label wine and savor the moment with three leisurely courses served on the sand or under a gazebo. Alternatively, go on bended knee after the meal, when you’ll have the beachfront and starry night all to yourselves.

The possibilities are endless - and there is a special place for all types of proposals! Contact us today to curate the perfect backdrop for your next big decision!
