A Magical Maldivian Proposal

A Magical Maldivian Proposal

Our Jumeirah resorts in the Maldives excel at many things, but one area in which they have really made their mark is the art of the marriage proposal.

Here is just one scenario. Imagine the glistening white sands of Jumeirah Vittaveli, just a 20 minute speedboat ride away from the capital, Malé; the brilliant, smooth turquoise sea and a gentle breeze blowing through the palm trees. A butler sits with a man who wants to propose to his partner. A plan is hatched.

Now imagine a sunset cruise on a dhoni, a traditional Maldivian boat, and the couple nibbling on canapés and admiring the reflection of the setting sun on the horizon. They arrive on a deserted sandbank, walk up the beach and there on the ground is a beautiful conch shell. She picks up the shell. It rattles. Inside is a ring. He drops down on one knee and asks for her hand in marriage. A three-piece band starts playing and they are guided by candlelight to a private dinner

All in a day’s work for your 24-hour butler.
