The pandemic has rewritten the rules of dating, and people are struggling in the throes of the virus, with some even identifying as “lockdown Incels” (a portmanteau of “involuntary celibates”). However, if you love someone that much, no virus can stop you to express your love. Now, the next thing to do is to ask the big question.
Be it on a sandy beach, in a lush jungle, on a dramatic cliffside overlooking crashing waves, or even in an emerald green rice paddy, here in this article, we have compiled some best spots in Bali to pop up that question.
Snorkelling at Menjangan Island
A short 10-minute boat trip from the mainland of Bali away, Menjangan Island is located. Together you can swim through clear blue water here. While snorkelling you look out over an admirable old ship and while you swim through the most beautiful coral reefs, you will be accompanied by cute finding Nemo fish. From everything your eyes see here, you already feel a few butterflies fluttering in your belly. So you probably feel completely magical if you ask the question here.
At the Famous Swing
While you swing gently in the famous swing together, you already get light jitters in your stomach because of the height and the irresistible view. At that moment the world will be literally at your feet. With the jungle beneath you, you can now safely secure yourself in the arms of your Tarzan.
They say that love goes through the stomach, right? Some restaurants offer private cooking classes, so here you and your sweetheart can enjoy from each other and all the traditional food that you will prepare. And besides, an Indonesian cooking class is also fun, educational, and pretty amazing to do! During the lesson, you often make several courses and eat them together afterwards. After all that hard work, you have certainly earned all that delicious food and wine. If your stomachs are full, it might be the perfect time to ask your partner.
Sunset at Uluwatu Temple
Sitting on the wall of the Uluwatu Temple, your partner and you, surrounded by the sea, can enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets of Bali. At this place, you can philosophize about life and the future, while your eyes are being pampered. For a perfect night, it’s advisable to check the weather before you go in advance for rain. If the weather is good, you probably already feel intense feelings. Your partner cannot say no at this idyllic place!
Around Bali’s Natural Views
The lush and terraced rice field provide a beautiful and unique backdrop for your down-on-one-knee moment. A simple trick of asking the question at the right time when the sun is going down would work just fine. Draped by a majestic lush rice field setting, you can embrace the mix sensation of romance, exotic and culture; a combination that you can hardly find on this island.
Up In The Air
How about do it with style? Let’s do it from the air. Ask your partner for a short trip with a helicopter. As you hover on the island, the pilot will take you to a spot that you have prepared where “Will You Marry Me?” has written on the sand. This idea may cost a bit much, but definitely worth every dime.
Sing Your Love
If you both are info music, you can take your partner for a romantic dinner by the beach. Hire a group of singers to play both of your favourite songs. Before the songs end, you down on your knee and show the ring. You can image the rest, right?
In the Middle of the Ocean
Take your bride-to-be to a voyage through the blue ocean for the freedom feeling over the endless horizon. Rent a yacht for a 3-hour trip and sail away until sunset. You can expect an evening of romance before popping that big proposal.
Horseback Riding Proposal
Are fairy tales something for you? Then drowning in your partner’s eyes while sitting on a horse, is perhaps more your style. In Bali, you can ride horses through the lush rice fields and along the beautiful beaches. Both beginners and experienced riders are welcome, so no worries if you don’t have much riding experience. Besides, your partner will probably only find it super cute when you try to get on your horse a little clumsy.
Help From the Elephant
How about an elephant brings the flower, and you bring the ring? If you wish to have this giant mammal with a great memory to be a part of your moment, Mason Elephant Park and Lodge can help you. The best scenario is to stay at their lodge so you will have more time to discuss the plan with the staff there. The Safari Night Journey through the misty forest of Taro might be a good start for the plan.
