Hands up if you’ve dreamt of the moment that your partner gets down on one knee and proposes, the sun sets perfectly in the background and the experience is more perfect than you ever anticipated *puts both hands up.* For those looking for a romantic holiday or to celebrate a special milestone, boutique hotel Cap Maison in St Lucia offers couples arguably the most romantic spot in the Caribbean: a private dining deck complete with its own unique champagne zip line. And for those looking to pop the question, the hotel also offers a dedicated proposal concierge to guarantee the perfect moment.
Located just minutes away from Rodney Bay in the north-east of the island, Cap Maison’s unique deck, known as ‘Rock Maison’, is built on a giant rock beneath the cliffs surrounded on all three sides by the Caribbean Sea. With the sounds of the waves as the backdrop, it is the perfect location to watch the sun set and admire the distant views of Martinique, whilst enjoying a romantic cocktail or a candle-lit dinner for two. Guests are served by their own personal waiter who delivers the drinks by winching them down via the Champagne Zip Line from the bar above the cliffs.
Guests can enjoy a fine-dining menu from the hotel’s Cliff at Cap restaurant, one of the most highly rated on the island, whose Executive Chef Craig Jones was nominated as ‘Caribbean Chef of the Year’. Specialties include a spiny lobster tail with pumpkin, fennel & mango shavings, or a special “Sharing for Two” menu, which offers a seafood salad, Caribbean Seafood risotto, and a souffle.
And for guests looking to make their holiday that little more special and want to propose marriage during their stay, Cap Maison also offers a full Proposal Package, complete with a dedicated concierge that can coordinate the logistics of the proposal of their dreams and help create the perfect moment.
Guests have a choice of tailored proposal experiences including sending a basket filled with red roses and a ring to ‘Rock Maison’ via its Zip Line, or for the more adventurous they can arrange a proposal at the top of St Lucia’s volcanic Pitons Mountains (a UNESCO World Heritage site), 2,619 feet above sea level.
To immortalise the unique moment, the concierge will arrange for a photographer to take a photo of the lucky couple which can then be used to create a ‘Just Engaged’ digital postcard to send to friends and families to announce the wonderful news.
Cap Maison also offers a special proposal package with accommodation and extras included.
The full Proposal Package includes:
- Four nights in the signature Oceanview Villa Suite with private pool
- Private dinner on Rock Maison during sunset on the proposal evening, complete with roses and ring delivered via the Champagne Zip Line.
- Scenic helicopter transfer upon arrival, offering a quick arrival at Cap Maison and aerial views of the island and Piton Mountains
- Daily breakfast and dinner daily at the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant Cliff at Cap, under the direction of Executive Chef Craig Jones
- Upgrade to higher room category
- Complimentary bottle of Champagne in room upon arrival
- Return ground transfer to airport upon departure
