The Lawn at Panamericana, Sentosa Golf Club, 27 Bukit Manis Road, Singapore 099892
4. Surrounded by lush greenery at The Alkaff Mansion
Here’s a proposal idea: this grand historic mansion in Singapore is perfect for popping the question. Choose between three concepts to set the scene: elegant Spanish restaurant Una, casual hangout TXA Gastrobar, and the lush Wildseed Cafe. Don’t forget to snap pics to remember the moment!
The Alkaff Mansion, 10 Telok Blangah Green, Singapore 109178
5. Amidst the clouds at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck
Shall we count the reasons why this sky-high spot exudes romantic vibes? The rooftop deck boasts a panoramic view of the Singapore skyline and scenic sea sights, it’s home to top-notch restaurants like Ce La Vi and Lavo, and it’s absolutely breathtaking at sunset. We recommend you book a lavish dinner here after your proposal so you can gaze into each other’s eyes and start planning your walk down the aisle.
Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck, Level 57, Tower 3, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956
6. Underwater fun at S.E.A. Aquarium
Imagine going down on one knee with colourful fishes, corals and majestic sea creatures as your backdrop. There’s no doubt the aquarium sets a romantic mood with its massive centrepiece tank filled with marine animals of all sorts. Plus, the soothing blue tint from the aquarium also calms the nerves. All the better if your partner is obsessed with the underwater world, ‘cos you can walk hand in hand as you explore the place.
S.E.A. Aquarium, 8 Sentosa Gateway, Sentosa, Singapore 098269
7. Picnic day out at Singapore Botanic Gardens
Do we have a green thumb in the house? There is nowhere more arresting than the calm of nature to ask the most important question of your life. Singapore’s first Unesco World Heritage Site has pockets of alluring places – the octagonal gazebo (also known as the Bandstand) is a popular spot but you can also go to the Learning Forest, Swan Lake, Palm Valley, Symphony Lake or Ethnobotany Garden for a change of scene (and a little privacy).
Singapore Botanic Gardens, 1 Cluny Road, Singapore 259569
8. Garden domes at The Summerhouse
Not everyone wants an OTT proposal where all eyes are on you. What’s the next option? Dining in a private dome. Yup, The Summerhouse has the most enchanting geodesic igloos set within a lush garden and twinkling lights – it almost looks like a scene from a movie. Plus, it’s air-conditioned so there’s no need to worry about smudged makeup in your pictures. Rain or shine, you’ll be proposing to your SO.
The Summerhouse, Level 2, Seletar Aerospace Park, 3 Park Lane, Singapore 798387
9. Idyllic spots in Sentosa
Oh, where do we begin? From spectacular beaches and award-winning hotels to picturesque attractions and ample dining spots, Sentosa is peppered with romantic locations at every corner. We think places like Foc Sentosa, Tanjong Beach Club, Fort Siloso Skywalk and even Siloso Beach will do the trick! Play your cards right and your proposal will end on a happy note.
Sentosa Island, Singapore
10. Hiking at Telok Blangah Hill Park
Located atop Telok Blangah Green, this park gives off fairytale vibes. Think grey stone stairs, cobblestone-like floors and pink bougainvillaea flowers. Getting here can be quite a hassle, so be her Prince Charming and tell your princess in advance about the walk. You don’t want her trekking around in heels for this! It’s also close to the popular Henderson Waves bridge should the night call for a leisurely and romantic stroll.
Telok Blangah Hill Park, 10 Telok Blangah Green, Singapore 109178
11. Sunset at Marina Barrage
This popular dam is a hotspot to picnic with the family or catch the sunset. You’ve got perfect weather (though it can get pretty windy, so keep that in mind), a beautiful backdrop of the city skyline and even fireworks displays on special days. Plus, you can always take a long, leisurely stroll to Gardens by the Bay or even East Coast Park after.
Marina Barrage, 8 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018951
12. Stargazing at Science Centre Observatory
Here’s an enchanting proposal idea in Singapore: sing “Rewrite the Stars” on repeat at the magical Science Centre Observatory. Marvel at those beautiful constellations in the sky with the star of your life, then say those magic words and cross your fingers they say “I do”.
Science Centre Observatory, 21 Jurong Town Hall Road, Singapore 609433
13. The Crystal Universe at ArtScience Museum
Located at the end of the ArtScience Museum’s Future World: Where Art Meets Science exhibition, The Crystal Universe leaves no wiggle room for mediocrity. The blanket of twinkling lights (170,000 LED lights, to be specific) will do the work to set the scene. All you have to do is wait for the right time. Fair warning: the area can get really crowded so you gotta be patient if you want a good shot of your proposal. Oh, and expect a few cameras on you! Best to plan your proposal during off-peak timings, unless you’re the type who relishes being in the spotlight.
ArtScience Museum, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 6 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 01897
14. A leisurely sail with Singapore River Cruise
Show of hands if you’ve never experienced a river tour on a traditional bumboat. Make the first time extra special by going down on one knee during a dreamy boat ride. Tip: plan it after sunset and let the surroundings amp up the ambience for you. Once your new fiancee says yes, take a seat together and soak in the chill, dreamy vibes.
Singapore River Cruise, embark at various jetties including Boat Quay and Merlion Park
15. Romantic hotels in Singapore
True story: Singapore has no shortage of romantic hotels for proposal ideas. If your future fiancee prefers a comfy, air-conditioned setting and a quiet after-party, proposing privately in a hotel is the way to go. From a quaint minimalist room with just the two of you at Lloyd’s Inn to an OTT suite at a five-star hotel like Raffles Hotel Singapore to beach-side romance at Barracks Hotel Sentosa, there’s plenty to choose from.
