Last week I was lucky enough to assist a dear friend in organising his proposal to his girlfriend of many years…
Him and his soon-to-be-fiancé were booked into the Spa of Peace & Plenty for a couples massage and a deluxe facial. We were considering where and how he would propose and, the perfect place sprang to mind. The resort spa has a beautiful big concrete bath sunken in the ground outside and is simply a must for anyone looking for that extra special zone out. The lovely ladies of the spa filled the bath for this beautiful couple, sprinkled the milk powder in and spread some rose petals around.
The bath has a little rest area outside where you can sit peacefully admiring the rainforest.
We had also organised a delicious bottle of champagne and some chocolate dipped strawberries… so the mood was set.
The terror of getting the ring in to the room without her knowing was all quickly forgotten after he heard the sound of “yes, I will marry you” and joyful screams and tears of course!
The afternoon then became one of celebration with the happily engaged couple sharing a magical beachside dining experience with their newly acquainted friends who happened to be celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary…. it was just warm and fuzzy feelings all over! The girls in the restaurant had set a beautiful beachside table. Watching the sun set on the Great Barrier Reef while listening to the backing sounds of the live musicians (Fingerprint Duo) turned the evening into a truly memorable occasion for both happy couples.
I’m sure it was one romantic Queensland Island holiday they will never forget.
