The island is a popular romantic getaway destination and a venue for a tropical beach wedding. If you are planning to propose to your loved one really soon and would want to do it in Koh Samui, here are enchanting settings you might consider to make your engagement a truly memorable event.
Dining on the Rocks
Address: 9/10 Moo 5, Baan Plai Laem, Bophut, Koh Samui, 84320, Thailand
As dreamy and as magical as any love story, the ambience at Dining on the Rocks can sweep any woman off her feet. This has the loveliest setting. It is set on the rocks with unobstructed water views and uncovered spots so as you’d feel like you are dining in infinite space. Found at Six Senses Samui in Bophut, this gets 10 out of 10 for romance factor. Dine in here just in time for the sunset and get down on one knee as you profess your love to the most special lady in your life. The moment will be filled with the golden sunset glow, with the beach and distant mountains as your backdrop. Of course, top that with a carefully chosen diamond ring and you are all set.
Its ambience and intimate atmosphere have made Dining on the Rocks a favorite place of couples especially tourists who are on their honeymoon. A number of people have proposed at this very restaurant and in fact the staff will be happy to coordinate with you before the actual event to ensure that the moment will be according to your wishes.
When your lady love says yes, you can then enjoy an impressive line up of dishes from their menu. Among the ones we love are the smoked duck breast with pumpkin puree, sea bass and lobster, and black Angus tenderloin. They also have vegetarian options as well as culinary journey sets which are highly recommended. Of course, your romantic date won’t be complete without something sweet. So for dessert, we suggest you try the dark chocolate creme brulee. This is a more decadent version of the French classic and is served with raspberry cake and hazelnut ice cream.
Tree Tops Sky Dining
Address: 92 / 1 Moo 2, North Chaweng Beach | Anantara Lawana, Chaweng, Bophut, Ko Samui 84140, Thailand
Probably among the most highly coveted dining seats in Samui belong to Tree Tops Sky Dining. If you will be staying in Chaweng and intend to propose on your vacation, this restaurant should definitely be on your list of possible venues. The place is small and has only 8 tables so it is close to impossible to dine without a reservation. If you are set on this place, plan ahead to get the best seats.
As the name implies, here you will be dining in a tree house, with the most magnificent vistas all around you. The hut is illuminated with subdued lighting, for an even more romantic feel. The natural setting is very relaxing and is conducive for an indulgent meal, great conversations, and in this case, hallmark moments. The place is far more expensive than most restaurants in Koh Samui, but if you set your eyes on the prize (your beloved saying yes), the price you spend here will be so worth it. Many couples, especially those who are into food, go for the Degustation Menu. This is a comprehensive culinary journey but is so romantic and a real treat for the taste buds. Of course their wines make the food taste even better, bringing out their flavors even more. The Premium Candlelight Degustation is the ultimate dining experience that will make any wedding engagement even more celebratory. This features the Rougie Foie Gras, Hokkaido Scallop, Australian Strip, Braised Lamb Shoulder, and signature dessert. This costs nearly 6000 baht per person, but it is worth every bit of money since the menu was created to impress.
Sun Moon Star

Sun Moon Star actually pertains to specific dining areas on the restaurant. Sun is the al fresco setting beside the pool. Moon is the air conditioned interior dining area.

With breathtaking water views, this venue is bound to make any event special. You may choose to dine in any of the key areas but no matter which one you choose, be it inside or al fresco, you and your fiance to be will have a great time. Our favorite however, is the Sun deck. The area is simply stunning. It is beyond words.
The menu of Sun Moon Star is primarily Mediterranean with a little something from East and West. For your proposal meal, don’t forget to try the baked oyster Rockefeller, seafood bouillabaisse, and the surf & turf.
Address: Mae Nam, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani 84320, Thailand
A place in Maenam that combines soothing ambience with top notch food and excellent service is Zazen Restaurant. There are some places that are all about the setting and not so much about the menu.
