Romantic Marriage Proposals, Romantic Surprises
Re-energise your love for each other with a surprise occasion they'll never forget – in a luxurious rainforest setting
Romance occurs naturally at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat – nevertheless, we're always striving to enhance the experience! We are constantly receiving requests from true romantics to surprise their partner during their stay with something truly memorable for honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays – or just because they can.
Or, of course, the marriage proposal where the answer can only be yes!
The Ultimate Romantics and Proposal Package – Update
In our February newsletter we ran a competition inviting past guests and friends of the retreat to give us their romantic ideas on what the Ultimate Romantics and Proposal set up might contain.
We had a fantastic response to our competition with an underlying theme of combining the beauty of nature with romantic elements, like stars, moon, candles, imaginative "mood" lighting, great food, music, flowers and the element of surprise – all in a stunning natural outdoor environment. Another suggestion was a professional photographer making an official record of the evening or any other time during the stay.
We had a lot of fun reading your ideas and many of them are possible for us to offer at the Retreat. As it does rain a fair bit in a rainforest and of course any winter will be cold, the package needs to be available in all but the worst weather.
Here is part of an entry from competition winner John Harris. Congratulations John – we love your approach!
It's tough for men to plan the perfect engagement surprise. So many expectations, so much to get right, so much to get wrong. Let's be honest, it all comes down to the question.
Not the "will you marry me" question, but the question from her friends, the question from her family ... "HOW DID HE DO IT?"
So in my opinion, it's all about the story that unfolds following that question.
Just like I did when I was booking my Crystal Creek adventure a few months ago as a trip for my fiancé, I was searching for that story to be presented in front of me.
We will be using lots of John's ideas which for now, we are keeping to ourselves as we formulate the Ultimate Romantics and Proposal package!
With our range of romantic packages, options and surprises, we are nevertheless always open to new ideas! Our most popular are:
