How to Propose in Samoa: Tips for Popping the Question in Paradise

From the lush jungles with hidden waterfalls to the azure lagoons surrounding tiny uninhabited islands, there are many stunning spots to ask “the question”. Want to make it extra special? Resorts and tour operators are happy to work with fiancés-to-be to curate the perfect moment, whether it’s privately in your resort’s villa or an elaborate display while on a tour. We go through some of the best Samoa proposal ideas in the list of ways to propose in paradise.

There are so many beautiful places across the islands of Samoa, however, you may just find that you’ll find it simpler to drop to one knee when the time is right… Check out some beautiful places in the 10 Best Photography Spots and Top 10 Sights in Samoa – trust us, they make stunning places to propose also.

1. Private Island Proposal

Little do people know that there are more islands than the giant volcanic islands of Upolu and Savai’i. There are a couple of gorgeous uninhabited islets that are only a short boat ride from shore. Organise with Le Vasa Resort for a special boat trip to Nu’ulopa Island which is a bat and turtle sanctuary. Alternatively, Nu’usafe’e Island is a stunning tuft of white sand and swaying coconut palms with its own lagoon just moments away from Coconuts Beach Club, Sinalei Reef Resort and Vaiula Beach Fales which all work with local boat operators (or have their own boat) to take you to this breathtaking island. Finally, how about a day trip to Namu’a Island? Although you’ll likely share this excursion with other day trippers, the summit of the island after a short hike is a remote and special place to pop the question.

2. Private Beachside or In-Villa Dinner

The “private dinner on the beach” or from the deck or balcony of your luxurious villa is a staple of Samoa’s most upscale resorts, and the result is irresistibly romantic. Indulge in a three-course dinner with bubbles either on your room’s balcony or by the beach at Taumeasina Island Resort or Le Lagoto Resort, choose a private decorated setting at Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa, or have a candlelit dinner with personal waiting service on the deck of your luxury villa at Seabreeze Resort. Who could say no?

3. Romantic Resort Proposal

Resorts often just happen to be in the most stunning locations for a Samoa proposal: on the beach with glorious lagoon views. Le Lagoto Resort on Savai’i has specialists on hand to help you organise a creative proposal, while their “Pop the Question” proposal package includes a romantic room or lagoonside set-up, a couples’ massage, a gift of his-and-hers lavalavas (sarongs) and Samoan fans, as well as a celebratory bottle of bubbles.

4. Waterfall Proposal

Inland isolation and untapped jewels when it comes to South Pacific proposals, beside a waterfall cascading into glistening waters presents a romantic setting to ask your loved one’s hand in marriage. Layout a gorgeous picnic to add a romantic touch. Check out some of the most stunning waterfalls to set the scene in the 10 Best Waterfalls in Samoa.

5. Snorkelling, Kayaking and More!

And for those unconventional couples (you know who you are), you might like to do something a little crazy yet utterly memorable like proposing underwater while snorkelling or diving (hide the ring in a shell, perhaps?) or out in the middle of an azure lagoon while kayaking (let’s just hope she/he doesn’t say no or that will be an awkward paddle back). Tour guides on island tours, kayak tours, boat tours and the like are usually very easy to work with if wanting to organise a proposal during a tour!
