Luxury Babymoons & Babymoon Destinations

Congratulations – you must be expecting a baby! Once the euphoria (and nausea) has calmed, it’s time to start planning your babymoon.

A “babymoon” is your last holiday before the two of your become three, and it’s the perfect time to treat yourselves to a bit of luxury before bringing baby home and beginning the next stage of your lives.

Why go on a babymoon?

The months between discovering baby is on the way and the day of arrival are a very special time in any couple’s lives; you know you’re going to become parents soon, but you’ve still got a bit of waiting and a lot of prepping to do.

While it might initially seem like an age to wait before “B-day,” the weeks will seem to fly by once you’ve passed those initial three months – and nothing is quite the same again.

Now is the chance to spoil yourselves and escape the routine of daily life while you still have the time and energy to do so.

When is the best time to go on a babymoon?

So long as you have the proper vaccinations and supplies, most women can travel safely well into their pregnancy.

Many women prefer not to travel in the first 12 weeks or so, as nausea and fatigue are more common during this stage. Some airlines do not allow pregnant women to fly during the last month or two, since the likelihood of going into labour is higher.

Other than that, the world of babymoon destinations is all yours. Just let your doctor know, and be sure that there are health facilities wherever you are going, just in case you need them – your Turquoise holiday specialist will be able to help with that last one.

The Best Babymoon Destinations

Peace and harmony are prerequisites for any babymoon, as is stress-free travel, deliciously fresh food and plenty of fun and relaxation for the pair of you.

We recommend choosing an adult-only resort for your babymoon destination, since this will be your last chance to relax without any children around for a while.

The majority of our favourite Indian Ocean resorts have spas with mother-to-be treatments, truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, whereas the resorts in Mauritius must be at the top of our list for future mums and dads.

Although a little farther to travel, the warm sands and sparkling waters of the Maldives will ensure that your babymoon is the last word in wow factor.

Those who can steal only a few days of self-indulgence will love the luxury resorts of the Middle East, where you can enjoy same truly necessary retail therapy.

There are fabulous shopping malls in Dubai, while the luxury desert hideaway Al Maha Resort and Spa will give you the chance to recharge your batteries in preparation for this next exciting chapter of your lives.

Whatever your tastes, your personal Turquoise specialist will help you craft a bespoke babymoon getaway that the two of you will never forget.
