If you and your sweetheart are planning a trip to the Hawaiian island of Oahu and you're ready to propose, take advantage of the opportunity to pop the question in paradise! Hawaii is known for its natural beauty and welcoming spirit of aloha. The Honolulu area has plenty of fine dining options and adventurous activities, so it will be easy to romance your bride-to be.
No matter where you propose in Honolulu, order a flower lei in advance that you can gift to your lady after you present her with the diamond cluster ring of her dreams. A local florist can recommend the best kind of flower for the occasion.
Where to Propose in Waikiki
Waikiki is the famous resort area located on the south shore of Honoloulu. The main street, Kalakaua Avenue, is the hub of shops and restaurants. The brilliant blue waters of the Pacific and waving palm trees are as romantic a setting as you could imagine.
If your girlfriend is the outdoorsy type, she will love a proposal in Waikiki. Think about planning a hike to the top of Diamond Head crater, a well-known landmark of the island of Oahu. The hike isn't easy, but the ocean view is completely worthwhile and provides a perfect backdrop for a proposal.
After you've placed the gorgeous diamond cluster ring on her finger and you've hiked back from Diamond Head, you'll have worked up a strong appetite. Take her to the brunch buffet at Duke's Waikiki to celebrate. Located right on the beach, it's a beautiful place to toast to your future with champagne.
For dinner, an excellent choice is Roy's, the first of Roy Yamaguchi's famous restaurants. The steak and seafood house with Asian influences serves up signature dishes like "Roy's Original Blackened Ahi with Spicy Hot Soy Mustard Butter Sauce." If your mouth isn't watering yet, just think about the chocolate molten lava cake, which you absolutely cannot miss.
Where to Propose in Downtown Honolulu
If you can, plan your proposal around First Friday Honloulu Gallery Walk in Chinatown. It's a free, lively outdoor event on the main drag of downtown Honolulu between 5 and 9 pm on the first Friday of every month, with late night parties happening at the bars in the area. Stop by the galleries and shops and then head to dinner at one of the amazing restaurants downtown.
Many say that their dinner at Chef Mavro was the best they've ever had. Once you're ready to propose, make a reservation here for an Asian fusion/French multi-course meal your sweetheart will never forget. The attentive staff and the impeccable ambience will complement the diamond cluster ring that will take her breath away.
After dinner, head to Indigo for drinks. The bar is known for its delicious, affordable cocktails, like lychee marinis and lemon drop martinis for around $4 each. Catching a show at the Comedy Club at Indigo will cap off a night that neither of you will forget.
