Getting away before your precious little one is born can provide you with an ideal opportunity to rest and relax.
Life changes when your newborn arrives, so by planning a short break with your partner, you can secure some much needed ‘us time’ before it becomes all about the baby.
Babymoons are fast becoming the must-do get-away for expecting mothers, and celebs are leading the trend. From Kate Hudson’s Tuscany break to the Duchess of Cambridge’s West Indies adventure. Flying to exotic shores before baby’s arrival is the holiday you never knew you needed.
With this in mind, we’ve listed the babymoon destinations you can jet off to during the cold British winter. After all, if you’re going to babymoon, surely you should be waited on hand and foot and enjoy the sunshine?
During November and December, Abu Dhabi drops to a warm 25 degrees. The ideal temperature to warm your bones without the worry of overheating. While in the summer season Abu Dhabi has high humidity, during the winter season there is less humidity in the air, which makes it a much more pleasant escape.
Whether you’re seeking lazy days on the beach, or an adventure in the desert, Abu Dhabi has a great blend of activities - meaning you can mix it up between restful days and mini-adventures.
The city of Abu Dhabi is an overwhelming mix of architecture, combining both futuristic skyscrapers and jaw-dropping natural surroundings.
For the ultimate break we would recommend booking a room in Qasr Al Sarab; as well as holding the title for one of the most Instagrammed hotels in the Emirate, it’s a location in the rolling dunes of the desert make it feel like you’re on another planet.
With temperatures hitting the mid-20s in winter, Marrakech is a destination that provides plenty of sunshine and a wealth of rich cultural experiences.
If you’re looking for a destination that offers more than just a sun lounger and an ice-cold mocktail, Marrakech provides daily markets where you can explore a treasure trove of local produce. Perhaps just take an extra suitcase as we can guarantee you’ll come back with more than you went with.
From the bazaars, souks and historical sightseeing, Marrakech has a vast array of experiences that can help you completely detach from life at home and allow you to absorb yourself into the adventure.
With such an exotic charm, it’s hard to choose one hotel in Marrakech; however, if we had to pick one location to drop our bags, it would have to be Hotel La Sultana. A luxurious romantic hideaway nestled within a walled medina. It’s a small, luxury hotel, but is well-known to spoil its guests.
As part of the Canary Islands, the beauty of Tenerife is not only in its year-round sunshine, but the fact it’s a short-haul flight. Reaching an average of 20 - 25 degrees during November and December, Tenerife will give you the winter sun you need, without the worry of a long-haul flight while expecting.
While Tenerife may not be the most luxurious destination, it provides an abundance of both secluded beaches, delicious eateries and natural escapes. For example, Teide National Park is a wild barren landscape that holds remarkable views and wildlife.
Hiring a car would be highly recommended as a visit to the volcano can also provide a real thrill ride.
For the luxury you deserve during your winter babymoon book into the Royal Hideaway Corale Suites. Each apartment has contemporary styling and includes huge terraces that look out across the ocean.
South Africa is a bucket-list destination if ever there was one, so why not make it even more memorable by making it your babymoon destination?
For fine dining and city adventures, Cape Town is the undisputed culinary capital of South Africa. However, if you’re looking for something less busy, head to Robertson, a charming town in the middle of the wine region.
While you may not be able to enjoy the delights of South African wine, the towns in these areas have some of the most established restaurants, including The Robertson Hotel where acclaimed chef Reuben Riffle resides.
Of course, you can’t visit South Africa without going on safari. For the ultimate wildlife adventure, head to Bushmans Kloof in Cederberg, a World Heritage Site that has a large number of species freely wandering through grounds.
For the ultimate instagrammable babymoon break, make like the A-listers and visit the white beaches of Mauritius.
November is the perfect time to visit this exotic destination as it’s the start of the summer season. Here you’ll find ten hours of sunshine with the heat remaining in the mid-20s. Ideal temperatures if you’re looking to explore the Indonesian Island.
As well as crystal clear seas, white beaches and five-star food on tap, Mauritius is an idyllic destination that will help you to switch off and escape the grey UK.
Secure your space at the Maradiva Villas Resort and Spa, an award-winning hotel that is one the islands most private. With a focus on romance, food and wellness, you’ll never want to leave.
