Looking for the ideal spot to get engaged? These ultra-seductive destinations—from secluded islands to dramatic cityscapes—are sure to win your love.

The Waipi’o Valley (Valley of the Kings), Hawaii

2 of 18

The Romance: The Waipi'o Valley, on the northeast shore of Hawaii's Big Island, is so named for the Ali'i, or ancient Hawaiian Royals, buried there, but it's the life-affirming beauty that will have you feeling the love. Jacqueline Horne, who owns the Waipio Wayside Inn, describes the view from the cliffs as "taro fields and lotus ponds dotting the lush green landscape, while the far cliffs are etched with waterfalls cascading down the hillside. Seven streams meander through the valley towards the ocean, cutting through a patchwork of farms and ponds." All that, and the longest black sand beach in the state.

The Price Tag: The Birds Eye room at Waipio Wayside Inn is $200. A 2.5-hour ride through the valley with Na'Alapa Stables costs $94.
