Proposal Ideas In South Africa

What is a Proposal?

A business proposal is a written offer from a seller to a prospective sponsor. Business proposals are often a key step in the complex sales process—i.e., whenever a buyer considers more than the price in a purchase.

Proposal Ideas In South Africa

Best unique places to Proposal:

1. Couples Spa Day Proposal Ideas

“We were once here at The Only for a couple’s treatment and we’re both laying on a bed either side of each other and at the end of our treatments, they took our hands and they joined them and it’s a moment for me that always stood out in my life.

2. Under The Sea

The aquarium is one of the most popular ideas in Cape Town, whereby you take your partner to the aquarium and go underwater to go and propose or if you’re on holiday, it’s nice to go snorkelling in a beautiful clear blue sea and then pop the question while you’re snorkelling.

One thing that we would suggest is to always ensure that you have a costume jewellery ring or perhaps a similar ring to the one you are going to propose because you don’t wanna lose your ring under the water.

3. Surprise Vacation Proposal Ideas

You can talk to the airline or the hostess beforehand and ask them to make that special announcement for you, while you would go down on your knee and pop the question.

“One of my friends, which I know of, her fiance proposed on the aeroplane, so he used the announcement on the aeroplane, he got one of the air hostesses to announce it and he proposed on the plane while they were on their route to one of their holidays.”

4. Hotel Or Resort

Another option would be to wait until you arrive at your destination. Organise with the hotel to have your room beautifully decorated with flowers or balloons. You can even do a movie under the stars or a cooking class if preferred.

If you’re going to a tropical destination like Mauritius, we love the Lux Resort, they ensure interactive romantic proposals. 

5. The Billboard

This is not something for everyone and if you’re not a public person we wouldn’t advise this.

If you have the option in your city or state where you have a billboard available, inquire! You might find that they’d be so excited to be a part of your proposal that they’d happily give you a really good rate to do it. 

How do you propose in Cape Town?


The charming harbour offers helicopter rides, at-sea proposals on the decks of a private yacht, five-star restaurants, hotels, spas, and private venues where you could pop the question.

Make it extra special by booking an exclusive sunset cruise at one of the stalls located in the V&A Waterfront.
