Baoase Luxury Resort | Curaçao
Say ‘I do’ during one of earth’s most magical sunset hours… complete with your very own fairytale story to write home about. Baoase Luxury Resort, located in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, is a five-star ultra-exclusive property situated only a 5-minute drive away from the colorful, historic city of Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The resort offers a variety of unique proposal packages, beginning with the “Local Fisherman” and “Local Diver” proposals. Each proposal begins with you and your future fiancé enjoying the stunning sunset at a secluded, beachfront oasis near Baoase. After a few moments, what appears to be a local diver emerges from the water, who tells you he’s found an intriguing, unmarked box in the ocean. Similarly, during the “Local Fisherman” proposal, a fishing boat will dock closely to you, and the fisherman will step out, revealing to you that he found a box in the ocean. In both scenarios, the fisherman and diver invite you and your fiancé-to-be to open the box and discover that there is a glittering diamond ring inside. The true magic ensues when the diver and fisherman walk away, leaving you and your partner to enjoy the intimate moment. Baoase provides fresh garden flowers, torches, and glasses of bubbly to toast to the beginning of your real-life fairytale. Additionally, a proposal planner will be available to coordinate and adjust to your every individual need. Learn more at baoaseluxuryresort.com
