If you are looking to propose in style, a trip to the Seychelles
is a good start. But if you want to make it a true one-in- a-million proposal, check out the most romantic spots in Seychelles.
For ultimate luxury you can’t get better than the North Island Resort. Truly fit for royalty – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose it for their honeymoon – the resort’s philosophy is to give its guests a private, exclusive and bespoke stay. With only 11 private villas, it’s pretty close to having your own private island. North Island also has its own conservation programme working to ensure that the island and its inhabitants are pristine.

Fond Ferdinand, Praslin
Having only opened in 2013, the Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve on Praslin is still relatively unknown. It’s also not particularly well signposted, meaning that its often very quiet there. The walk itself is very beautiful but its the viewpoint you want to head to. On a clear day you can see for miles in all directions.

On the ocean
Exploring the islands by boat is a perfect way to see and explore lots of different islands. There is definitely something special about sunsets on a catamaran too. There are fantastic spots you’ll find that you can really only discover by boat, so you’ll be sure to find the right setting to propose.

In a helicopter
A proposal in a private helicopter is most certainly a grand gesture. ZilAir is the luxury, private helicopter company based in Seychelles and offers bespoke itineraries.
