Where to pop the question


If you’re thinking of proposing on Valentine’s Day, then Thomson are helping you out with a few ideas of where in the world to pop the question and how to do it.

Jamaica – Message in the sand: The beautiful beaches of this Caribbean island provide the perfect canvas for the traditional “will you marry me?” written in the sand. The Riu Palace Tropical Bay is set on the beach in Negril, has five restaurants, including a gourmet fusion eatery, an Italian trattoria and a Japanese à la carte and swim up bar. Seven night all-inclusive at the 5T Riu Palace Tropical Bay A la Carte with flights from Gatwick on February 13 costs from £1,339 per person, based on two adults sharing .

Sharm El Sheikh – Underwater: Dive into the warm Red Sea amongst the tropical fish and discover a magical world with unforgettable exotic sea-life and underwater scenery – the perfect setting for an unexpected proposal! The Iberotel Palace Couples Resort is on a sandy beach and has two restaurants. La Coupole serving an international buffet and La Toscana for intimate Italian a la carte meals. The trip can be combined with one of Thomson’s seven night Nile cruises. Seven night all-inclusive at the Travelife Gold Awarded 4T+ Iberotel Palace Couples Resort with flights from Gatwick on February 13, costs from £763 per person, based on two adults sharing. Nile cruise from £635 per person.

Maldives – Message in a bottle: A secluded island in the Indian Ocean sets the perfect scene for the perfect proposal – a message hidden in a bottle buried in the sand! Chaaya Island is a typical Maldivian paradise with traditional wooden huts dotted among beautiful gardens and white sands. The hotel has its own scuba-dive centre, and there’s also snorkelling on offer. Fourteen nights all-inclusive at the 4T+ Chaaya Island Dhonveli, with flights from Gatwick on February 10 from £2,051 per person, based on two adults sharing.

Marrakech – Under the stars: A highlight of the Caleche by night excursion is a trip on a horse-drawn carriage, down Marrakech’s main Mohammed V Avenue to Jemaa el-Fna. By day, Jemaa el-Fna is little more than a crowded square, but as night falls, the show unfolds. Snake charmers tease hypnotic moans from their flutes, storytellers sit cross-legged as crowds gather round and cooks’ grills sizzle with tender strips of lamb. Pop the all-important question underneath the stars as you stroll around the gardens of the Riu Tikida Plameraie hotel. Seven nights all-inclusive at the Thomson Platinum 4T+ ClubHotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie, departing Gatwick on February 11, costs from £484 per person, based on two adults sharing.
