Table Mountain – Cape Town
Can you imagine a more breathtaking background setting for your proposal than the majestic and iconic Table Mountain? Take some time overnight to work up the courage to pop the question at the gorgeous Cape Milner Hotel, where you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the pool deck, a quick workout at the in-house gym or a quiet cocktail in the chic Glass Lounge.
When the time comes to propose to that special someone, always remember that it is hard to go wrong with a beautiful view, a sunset and a bottle of bubbly, at the top of Table Mountain.
Why not conclude your romantic proposal with a sunset cruise off Clifton Beach; ending your perfect day off on your very own private balcony of one of the Cape Milner’s executive suites.
