11152007: How About a Treasure Hunt Proposal in Aruba?!

We’re always getting letters from readers looking for unique ways to propose, ideas for making the day unforgettable. Here’s one: how about making the proposal a treasure hunt?

Bucuti Beach Resort in Aruba offers great ways to pop the question. Before arriving, guests can custom order their very own engagement and the attentive staff at Bucuti will stop at no end to deliver the magical moment. With amazing attention to detail, right down to the number of rose petals and specific type of champagne, individuals can rest assured their proposal will go off without a hitch.

If you’d like to follow the more traditional route, you can opt for a romantic beach setting on an isolated area of Eagle Beach. Resort staff will set up the scene with everything requested – perhaps a blanket, candles, red roses, chilled champagne with glasses and chocolate covered strawberries. Created hours before, the location will be completely void of Bucuti staff, making it seem as if the couple just happened to stumble upon this romantic beach setting.

Those seeking fun and games may choose an adventurous scavenger hunt to lead their fiancé-to-be to the ring. While enjoying a meal at the Pirates’ Nest Restaurant, guests can invite their loved one to partake in a thrilling hunt for buried treasure. Guests can coordinate with Bucuti staff on a location for the ring to be buried, and then create clues that will lead their significant other directly to where the X marks the spot of the buried treasure.

Another unforgettable moment created at the resort leads the loved ones to a surprise proposal while on a snorkel excursion in the Caribbean Sea. Carefully planned with resort staff, the ring will be packed into a special box and hid beneath the water in a nearby snorkeling site. Bucuti staff will coordinate with the snorkeling charter regarding the rings location and make sure the couple is dropped in the correct spot enabling the fiancé-to-be to discover this treasure beneath the sea.

Swept Away Romance Package: However you choose to pop the question, you can add Bucuti’s Swept Away Romance Package which includes hotel accommodations with a large balcony or terrace, all tax and service charges, a bottle of chilled champagne in the room, candlelight dinner for two on the beach at the Pirates’ Nest Restaurant, daytime snorkel or sunset sailing cruise and a Bucuti gift basket.
