7 Babymoon Destinations

April 23, 2015

If this is your first pregnancy, you might be surprised (and excited) to hear about a new trend that’s sweeping the pregnant nation 

Babymoons are the latest right of passage for expectant couples. Meant as the last hurrah sans tiny human being, it’s all about indulging, reflecting, relaxing and just having a good old time! Take a look at these amazing places for some inspiration.

Like Mosaic Palais Aziza & Spa in Marrakech, for instance. Palm trees abound in this Moroccan oasis and luxury is the order of the day. Don’t forget to book a cooking class with executive chef Jonathan Spiteri in the hotel’s semi open air theatre kitchen.

 

 

If you’re more of an Orient Express kind of gal, you’ll love the Belmond Royal ScotsmanHop on board and travel in style to the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Visit great castles including Queen Elizabeth’s childhood home, Glamis Castle, try a spot of fishing in Cairngorms National Park and tour Rothiemurchus Estate.

 

St Brides Spa Hotel in Pembrokeshire offers a perfect rest-stop while you explore one of the best coastlines in the world. But the bonus of this jewel is pregnancy treatments. From relaxing body wraps to full-body massages using “safe but effective pre-natal techniques”, this option could be a frontrunner.

Embrace your inner Greek goddess at Oia Villa I in SantoriniUnwind in a private home away from home. With the beach on your doorstep and stunning sea views beneath azure skies, we might even join you! And no booking fees…

Head to Italy’s fashion capital and enjoy the sites Milan has to offer with Hotel Principe di Savoia as your base camp. Just a stone’s throw from La Scala opera house, Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece The Last Supper and the magnificent Duomo cathedral, this is sure to be a memorable trip.

 

Get mellow in the Mediterranean’s La Réserve Ramatuelle, France. Chow down at its Michelin-starred restaurant and take advantage of the resort’s Créme de la Mer skincare treatments specially created for the spa. And if you book your stay at least 15 days in advance, you can get 15% off!

No kids allowed at this next hideaway. Sun it up in Mallorca’s Barceló Illetas Albatros hotel by day and enjoy a Palmarosa facial while the sun sets. Rose petal powder and cocoa butter will prepare your skin for a gentle polish with a warm muslin compress filled with rose petals and dipped in an essential rose oil blend. You’ll soon have another reason for that glow.

All you need to do now is pack! (Don't forget your Anti Stretch Mark Band!)
