Romantic Places To Propose In Singapore
While travelling is slowly returning to the norm, not everyone has the means to plan an overseas wedding proposal. Luckily in Singapore, there are still many romantic places where you – or your significant other – can go down on one knee. For those who dream about fulfilling your proposal fantasy, below are 15 romantic places for you to consider.
1. The Summerhouse
If your girl prefers a private proposal, nothing beats having one at the Garden Dome at The Summerhouse. Perfect for close friends and family, the Garden Dome allows you to add your personal touch with romantic setups like photos and flowers.
Since the Garden Dome is surrounded by lush greenery, you won’t have to feel paiseh when you go down on one knee. Furthermore, you’ll also get to dine inside the air-conditioned Garden Dome with a waiter who will serve your courses.
Address: 3 Park Lane, Seletar Aerospace Park, Singapore 798387
Opening hours: Weekends & Public holidays, 11.30am to 3pm (Brunch)ㅣWednesdays to Sundays and public holidays, 6pm to 10pm (Dinner)
Contact: WhatsApp 8809 5840 or email email@example.com
You don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket for bae to say “yes”, as wedding proposals can be humble and simple too. For those who are tight on budget, the open space at CHIJMES might pique your interest.
Thanks to the European-inspired whitewashed architecture, they would make you feel as if you are overseas. Plus, with Singapore’s nightlife up and running again, you might even chance upon live music playing in the background to add to the romantic ambience. Perhaps after the proposal, you could also head over to one of the restaurants to celebrate the occasion.
3. Rooftop Garden at Marina Barrage
The Rooftop Garden at Marina Barrage might be a spot that kite flyers and picnic-goers frequent, but it is also an excellent location for you to put a ring on her finger. Surrounded by a gorgeous view of Marina Bay and the CBD buildings in the distance, the rooftop garden becomes even more romantic especially if the proposal is done against the sunset.
P.S: Consider using drones to film a cool BTS video to play during your future wedding banquet.
Address: 8 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018951
Opening hours: Mondays to Thursdays 8am to 9pmㅣFridays to Sundays 8am to 10pm
4. Open Farm Community
At Open Farm Community, you can make your fantasy of a rustic garden wedding proposal come true. Thanks to the private setting and peaceful surroundings, you can be sure that Open Farm Community is an ideal location for a grand gesture.
For the unacquainted, Open Farm Community is both a farm and a restaurant, tucked away from the busy city. Their exclusive outdoor deck allows you to soak in the “countryside” vibe, and they even offer meals made with ingredients from their home-grown farm.
As a suggestion to spruce things up a lil’ more, you can even prepare your own props and decor to perfect the proposal.
5. The Clifford Pier
Treat your eyes to an unrestricted view of Marina Bay Sands in the horizon when you pop the question at The Clifford Pier. As part of the Fullerton Bay Hotel, the 208-seater restaurant includes both indoor and outdoor dining for those who prefer a breeze. For an unforgettable proposal, we recommend proposing when the sun is setting to capture the golden hour.
Currently, they are only open for dim sum brunch on the weekends, but they also offer event bookings for occasions such as a proposal party or a wedding.
Address: 80 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049326
Opening hours: Weekends, 10.30am to 3.30pm (Closed on weekdays)

6. Henderson Waves Bridge
Hiking is one of Singaporeans’ favourite activities, and if you and bae are avid hikers, why not pop the question on the Henderson Waves Bridge. The 272m bridge is perfect for a romantic stroll to set the mood before you ask bae to be your forever SO.
Drawing from the experiences of couples like Jonathan and Rebecca who had their proposals there, some even went the extra mile to decorate a part of the bridge.
Address: Henderson Road, Southern Ridges, Bukit Merah, Singapore 159557
7. Singapore Flyer
While you have the rest of your life to pamper bae, why not start off on the right foot by indulging in fine dining in one of the capsules of Singapore Flyer. Since the capsule provides a private setting for only the two of you, you won’t feel embarrassed when you share your sincere feelings.
After being awed by Singapore’s magnificent city view and your romantic gesture, it’s not a surprise if she says “yes”.
8. S.E.A Aquarium
It is not easy to find a proposal venue that has both unique and romantic aspects, but the S.E.A Aquarium fits the bill. Not only will you have marine life like zebra sharks and stingrays in your proposal backdrop, but you’ll also have them as witnesses to the special moment.
As the S.E.A Aquarium has three venues ‒ Ocean Dome, Ocean Gallery, and Ocean Restaurant ‒ of different sizes, you can opt for one that fits your budget. Of course, after the proposal, you could also spend some time looking at the therapeutic marine creatures as a date.
9. Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay
Take things literally to the next level when you propose to bae at one of the Supertree Groves at Gardens by the Bay. Providing a 360-degree panoramic view of Marina Bay, the Supertree Grove allows a capacity of 30 pax, so you can invite your close friends and family to witness the moment.
With the proposal taking place 50m above ground, rest assured there won’t be any kaypoh passersby who might accidentally photobomb your pictures.
10. The Star Vista open staircase
Now that there are no longer gathering restrictions, those who are planning a large-scale proposal can look out for places like the open staircase at The Star Vista.
The venue suits events like flash mobs in which you can have dancers standing on different levels. As another suggestion, you can also dedicate a singing performance to bae in the open space to bravely express your love before popping the question.
11. Hot air balloon
Ballons du Monde was previously located at Marina Bay
Expect a jaw-dropping response when you propose to bae during a hot air balloon ride in Singapore. Currently located at Palawan Green at Sentosa Island, Ballons du Monde offers hot air balloon rides, so you won’t need to travel overseas for the experience. Since the hot air balloon ride only allows a capacity of 3 pax, rest assured the proposal will be really private.
12. Botanic Gardens
The original story of Swan Lake might not suggest a happy ending, but a pair of swans IRL represent soulmates for life.
ICYMI, there are two majestic white swans in the Swan Lake of Botanic Gardens. This could only mean the pavilion near Swan Lake is a perfect location to put a ring on her finger. Also, there are benches in the pavilion where you can invite friends and family to witness the life-changing moment.
Apart from Swan Lake, Botanic Gardens also has other locations for a romantic proposal like the Symphony Lake and Ethnobotany Garden.
Address: 1 Cluny Road, Singapore 259569
Opening hours: Daily 5am to 12am
Contact: Call 1800 471 7300
13. Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro
You might have already swept bae off her feet, but why not do it again when you propose to her at 100m above sea level, at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro. Located on the highest point of Mount Faber, the restaurant allows a majestic view of Singapore while you enjoy the lush greenery and tranquillity of Faber Peak.
The romantic ambience would no doubt fit the mood for a proposal, and after she says “yes”, you can also ring Poland’s Bells of Happiness as a way to commemorate the special occasion.
14. Wheeler’s Yard
Wheeler’s Yard is all about vintage and rustic vibes, as the bicycle-themed cafe is housed within a massive industrial warehouse. Thanks to the close proximity to Whampoa Park Connector, Wheeler’s Yard is an excellent location for you to plan a proposal, especially if you and bae are avid cyclists.
The spacious cafe also offers IG-worthy backdrops for you to snap some pics and document the proposal.
15. Wildseed Cafe at Alkaff Mansion
The main building of the Alkaff Mansion is indeed impressive AF. But if your girl prefers a princess-like proposal amidst a floral cafe, be sure to check out their Wildseed Cafe, which is also pet-friendly. Nestled on the hill of Telok Blangah, and away from the city bustle, Wildseed Cafe provides a casual and romantic atmosphere.
We also recommend checking out other parts of the historic mansion like the courtyard, which doubles as an excellent photo spot.
