In October 2011 my girlfriend and I went to Sunset at Aninuan beach resort for a small holiday, and our engagement that she did not know of.
Prior to our trip I informed the staff, Lez, that I was planning on asking my girlfriend to marry me. Much to my delight Lez shared my excitement and made it an experience that we will never forget.
On arrival I gave Lez the engagement ring and a vintage bottle of champagne, he promised he would take care of everything. From that moment onwards I left it into the staffs hands and enjoyed my holiday.
On my girlfriends birthday for dinner we were escorted to the swimming pool. Next to the swimming pool a table was setup, and all along the swimming pool candles were lit.
During our entire dinner, on a discrete distance two waiters were waiting to assist with all our needs. And as requested when dessert arrived my girlfriend was served a plate of flowers with on top of it the box containing the ring. To my delight and constant joy she said "yes".
After dinner we enjoyed our champagne together with the resort owner Lexy.
When we returned to our room we found a pathway of candles from the door to the bed. And all along the pathway were rose peddles and pink/red hearts which were cut out by hand. In front of the bed was a cardboard heart with sweet words wishing us the best.
The whole experience made our holiday, and engagement, a moment that we will never forget.
And because of this experience there is also no other resort that we would want to get married at.
Lexy, Lez, and all the other staff once again a sincere thank you, salamat po!
