Your last holiday before you become a parent is an essential one. After all, it’s one of the last times you’ll be able to spend with your significant other before two becomes three (or more!) and it’s an ideal time for mums-to-be to relax before their lives are transformed forever. If you are looking for inspiration for your ‘babymoon’, take a look at these wonderful destinations…and get ready for some serious R&R.
If you would rather stay close to home during your babymoon, head for one of the UK’s most breathtaking beauty spots – the Lake District. Whether you opt for a luxury spa hotel overlooking Lake Windermere, or a quaint log cabin somewhere peaceful and remote, you’re sure to feel refreshed and relaxed when staying in this wonderful region with your significant other. Remember:
babymoons are not just about resting before the baby arrives – they’re also about connecting with your partner and preparing for the incredible journey ahead. So enjoy some indulgent meals, take part in a couple’s massage, and enjoy picturesque strolls while you talk about your exciting future.
If you want to escape the UK on your babymoon, look no further than the stunning backdrop of Santorini and the other Greek islands. What could be more relaxing than sitting on your private terrace, watching the sun set over a clear blue ocean after a fresh Greek salad, while feeling your little one wriggle around inside you?
If you’ve been lucky enough to escape the sensation of morning sickness, you could also hop on a boat trip to some of the surrounding islands, including Mykonos, Paros or Crete. Sun, sea and total serenity are the order of the day in beautiful Greece.
Thailand’s many islands are the perfect destination for a serene and relaxing babymoon. The scenery here is so idyllic, one of the islands was chosen to represent ‘paradise’ in the film, The Beach. Phuket, the largest of the islands, is home to a multitude of five-star resorts, with suites overlooking the sea and a wide selection of spa treatments available.
If you’d prefer to head somewhere even more remote, opt for Koh Samui, where you can unwind with a pre-natal yoga class before sipping a fresh mocktail on a pristine white beach.
There is no better opportunity for all-out luxury than the final holiday before becoming a parent – so why not opt for total indulgence in the Grenadines? The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge famously headed to the beautiful island of Mustique during both of Catherine’s pregnancies, where they relaxed with family and friends before the arrival of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Mustique is incredibly private, with secluded beaches and exclusive villas for rent. The weather is fantastic all-year-round, so you’re guaranteed plenty of sunshine as you recline by your picturesque pool. Your babymoon is the time to make wonderful memories before your family grows.
Where are you heading for your babymoon? We would love to hear your plans in the comments below.
