Before whisking the love of your life away for the destination wedding of their dreams, a proposal is in order. With the ever-growing popularity of social media and sites like YouTube, brides and grooms are feeling more pressure than ever to make their marriage proposal an over-the-top affair. Thankfully, lots of resorts and hotels are creating packages that do a lot of the legwork for you. The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa is one such purveyor. The resort is located on 240 acres in Rancho Mirage, California, surrounded by the Coachella Valley desert and is 100 miles east of Los Angeles. For lovebirds visiting and looking to pop the question, the resort’s Elevate Your Engagement Package is a great option! The package includes:

  • One-hour hot air balloon flight from Fantasy Balloon Flights of Indian Wells, California
  • One-night accommodations in an elegant suite
  • Dinner for two, specially crafted by Chef de Cuisine Brandon Testi of bluEmber
  • Champagne and strawberries in-room

Nothing makes a statement quite like an eight-stories high hot air balloon! Fantasy Balloon Flights has balloons ranging in carrying capacity from two to ten passengers, plus an FAA certified commercial pilot. Once you’re back on the ground and engaged, enjoy some of the relaxing amenities at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa. These include 27 holes of golf, a 20,000-square foot spa, two swimming pools and a water park complete with a lazy river.

The Elevate Your Engagement Package starts at $1,499 and is based on availability. To reserve your package, email rlp-reservations@omnihotels.com or visit omnihotels.com/rancholaspalmas.
