How to plan the perfect proposal

When it comes time to popping the big question, no doubt, you’ll be keen to create the perfect romantic and memorable occasion. At PurePods we help lots of our guests get prepared to pop the question, so we’ve put together a list of our top 3 tips to help you pull off the perfect proposal!

Find the perfect location

Looking for a secluded location surrounded by nature, with a touch of luxury, a PurePod can provide the perfect setting to ask the big question. But which PurePod location to pick is the tricky part! 

For those who want to go all out, then select either our Kahutara or Manakau PurePod and include the option for a scenic helicopter ride and enjoy an unforgettable picnic at altitude amongst the stunning Seaward Kaikōura Ranges with spectacular 360-degree views. Take time to capture photos, pop the bubbles and enjoy a delicious picnic.

If you love wine, Greystone PurePod is set high above the award-winning Greystone vineyard, right in the heart of the Waipara Valley. Enjoy a long lunch at the cellar door and then head back to your PurePod to pop the question in private vines right outside your glass eco-cabin. 

Feeling like a rush of adrenaline before popping the question? The Atatū and Korimako PurePods have the perfect mountain biking activities available.  Make sure you secure the ring somewhere safe before you jump on the bike! 

And lastly, if you’re looking for a private location with stunning ocean views and glorious sunsets, Pōhue PurePod is the ticket. 

Our six PurePods are located in heavenly and private locations with all the facilities you require including a fabulous shower, flush toilet, crisp linen, and the most comfortable bed on the market! One thing you can be assured of is you and your loved one will be the only ones for miles. 

Keep it a surprise 

To avoid blowing the surprise, come up with an alternative story. 

They may know something’s up, as you jump in your car to head away for the night, but the beauty with PurePods is the location is a secret to everyone. After parking your car, you will follow the walking track through regenerating native bush which adds to the surprise and anticipation. 

Making it special and unique  

To make your proposal one they’ll never forget, incorporate special memories. Many of our guests use personal photos, display love messages, and have their favourite bottle of wine waiting. 

Our team at PurePods love helping guests pull off the perfect proposal. We’re happy to arrange battery candles, your favourite champagne, food hampers, flowers, and much more. 

Here are some images and quotes that make our team smile! 

Chelsea and Matt after their PurePod engagement

“Thank you for a marvellous experience.  We had everything we could have needed for a great night.  Amazing, delicious food.  Much thanks to you, your chef and your team.  P.S. I proposed to Garry and he said Yes!!” Matt 

“He popped the question and I started to cry of happiness. He’s the love of my life, AND who could say no to a proposal like this?!” Linsey. 

“I said YES on our way to the glass eco the middle of nature” Savinaatai. 

“The setup was nothing short of stunning! Kiri was still mesmerised when I launched into my planned speech and got down on one knee. She cried, said YES and we embraced before she walked around checking out the photos, flowers, and champagne. Also a BIG thank you to you for organising all of it. I will forever think of the amazing Jackie whenever I think of our engagement. You have been so patient, helpful and willing to go the extra mile for us and I couldn’t thank you enough!” Makho.
