Taking a holiday when pregnant is a great way to rest and recharge from the demands of daily life whilst your body goes through some big but exciting changes and a fabulous opportunity to celebrate your life and unity with your partner before welcoming a brand new little addition to the family.
So if you’re looking for a babymoon like a European getaway, a beach break or an adventure further ashore and not sure on where to go, well then I’ve got you covered with 5 of the best pre-baby holidays to book!
It’s easy to see why the Bahamas is one of the finest babymoon destinations. Home to velvet beaches and sparkling azure waters, amazing marine life and some of the most delicious cuisine your tastebuds will ever try, the Bahamas truly has an abundance of reasons why this should be at the top of your list. With 700 islands, it won’t be hard to find a national park to explore or a few spots for peace and quiet.
Where better to stay than Atlantis Bahamas? Immerse yourself in tropical paradise consisting of various luxurious accommodations to choose from, bucket list activities and refreshing spa treatments to put your mind and body at ease, all of which providing an unforgettable stay.
For a blissful trip close to home, Greece is the perfect European destination to enjoy before you embark on your journey through parenthood. Calm waters, iconic blue and white homes and the tranquil Aegan sea, you could choose to do some island hopping between Santorini for jaw-dropping views and romantic sunsets or Mykonos for laid-back beach vibes.
Both are wonderful but can get busy particularly in summer months so if you prefer to avoid the crowds then maybe the charming gem that is Rhodes is more your cup of tea. Rich in history, long, curved stretches of sand and a vibrant restaurant scene, this island has everything to make your babymoon as relaxing as possible. Consider an all-inclusive stay at Mayia Exclusive Resort & Spa in Rhodes or have your breath taken away at Canaves Oia Suites in Santorini.
Ahh Hawaii, even the name sounds heavenly. Warm tropical climate, crystal-clear waters and pristine scenery, Hawaii has long been the favourite for many seeking adventure or relaxation particularly amongst expecting families. There’s something here for every kind of traveller. Infinite amount of natural beauty and rainforests are ideal for the venturers but for the mamas wanting nothing more than to feel pampered and rejuvenated then checking into one of the many 5-star hotels for spa treatments is the way to go.
Hawaii is the land of luxury especially Maui for its sparkling ocean, long list of amenities and peaceful resorts. My recommendation, the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. An oceanfront resort with an infinity pool and a unique experience where your stay can be customised to your wants and needs.
Enter nirvana as you step into a land filled with world-class beaches, turquoise lagoon and a blend of rich cultures. The country is a multi-ethnic society and hugely popular for being one of the most welcoming places, making this slice of paradise very baby-moon friendly.
With a long list of activities, you’ll never be short of things to do here. Choose dolphin spotting around Tamarin Bay, be blown away by the Chamarell Waterfall, go shopping at Le Caudan Waterfront or simply laze about under the coconut palm trees of the many pristine beaches.
It’s no wonder Mark Twain said “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven; and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” Have the ultimate pre-baby vacay at Shangri-La Le Toussrok, Mauritius. A luxurious sanctuary located on the shores of Trou d’Eau Douce offering a peaceful atmosphere, views of the Indian Ocean and experiences tailored to your heart’s desires.
Palm Springs, California
A timeless destination with great weather, gorgeous landscapes and stylish hotels, Palm Springs is home to many of Hollywood’s rich and famous and often the place people gravitate to for a relaxing getaway, especially when pregnant! Stay on Frank Sinatra Drive at The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage where you can enjoy views overlooking Palm Springs, access to the desert, a culinary experience like no other, holistic spa treatments and many more.
